Doggy Desserts - Cookbook Review



I love my two dogs. They have sensitive stomachs so I treat them to the best foods I can. Now I can make them special treats with the recipes inside Doggy Desserts.

Doggy Desserts contains 125 Homemade treat recipes. Inside there are many doggy cookies recipes including bars, rolled, and drop cookies made with wholesome ingredients. Even cakes can be made doggylicious! I love the section of the muffins. For hot summer weather there is a section of frozen treats. Dogs will be licking their chops!


Browsing the cookie recipes first, these are amazing! They sound good enough for humans to eat. I have many of them bookmarked to make. The first would be the Chicken Biscuits - made with chicken leg meat, water, oil, egg and whole wheat flour. That sounds simple enough. For Thanksgiving, how about making Sweet Potato Biscuits? Great ideas for all types of holidays and everyday treats. The Peanut Butter Apple Cookies had me drooling. I can't wait to make these to see the faces of my happy dogs! I bought the ingredients and will be baking soon!

My favorite is the bars section. Super simple way to make them. Just use a pan then cut them into sliced bars.

Most of the recipes use whole grain flours. If you have a dog needing a grain free treat, maybe switching to a different type of flour would help. I have a grain free diet dog and plan to try coconut or almond flour . I might have to play with the flour ratio a bit, but the recipes seem adaptable.
There are many delicious sounding recipes included in Doggy Desserts. The full color photographs of the treats and the happy dogs makes this a very enjoyable book!

Treat your furry friends to some homemade goodies! Pick up a copy of Doggy Desserts at your favorite bookseller.

Filled with beautiful illustrations of the characters from the Hundred Acre Woods and quotes from the silly old bear himself, Disney’s Winnie the Pooh: Baby’s First Record Book will remain a cherished keepsake for generations.

My Thoughts

This book is absolutely adorable. The website was super easy to use, and personalizing was nice and simple. You just put your child's name in. You could put anything you want. They have the suggestion of Baby Meenan, but I tried out a bunch. I tried Declan Meenan, Baby Declan, and Baby Meenan. I finally set on simple Declan's. You can then write the sweetest personalization message. I did not share mine for personal reasons, but I teared up righting my baby a little note for the inside of the book. Then you upload a photo for the cover. They make is very easy to edit it and guide it. Your job after that is done.

I like the fact that they let you look through every picture on the website. You can preview the entire book. Which is good for me, because I am OCD, but also have terrible handwriting. So I actually took a screenshot of each page and put it into a power point and typed in my answers so I could edit and organize first, but also because my handwriting is terrible. This way I can get everything set for the book and then give it to my aunt to write in the answers, because she has pretty handwriting. Your child's name is on every page, and it has some cute sections too for what was popular the year he was born and things like that. Most of the sections have a corresponding photo page where you can put a photo for the event like "First Bath" or "First Outing". The book was a perfect size. It was about the size of one of those Golden Books, and nice quality with a good hard cover. It makes it look expensive. The photo printed on the cover well too. This would make a great baby shower gift for someone if you wanted to get them a gift card for future making or for a first birthday.

My Thoughts

Acorn Media is back with a second set of classic Agatha Christie book adaptions with THE BEST OF AGATHA CHRISTIE, Volume 2.  The books really come to life on the small screen. I especially enjoy seeing David Suchet as Poirot. This set includes three exciting films.

Agatha Christie's The Witness for the Prosecution - This story in set in London in the 1920s. There is a beautiful heiress named Emily French. It seems like she has it all, including love. Then, she turns up murdered and the man she loved is the number one suspect. Leonard, her lover, was the heir to her fortune, even though he already had a wife which makes him doubly suspicious.


Three Act Tragedy - A parson dies suddenly at a party along the coast. At first it appears natural but when a similar death occurs at another party, the hostess becomes a top suspect. The drama comes in when Poirot rein-acts the death on stage. 

Hallo'ween Party - A young girl is murdered at a costume party and a crime novelist calls in Poirot to collaborate. It turns out the girl had been a possible witness to another murder and the pair set out to find a killer in the quaint little town.


Fans of Agatha Christie will certainly want to have this DVD set in their collection. Be sure to check out Volume 1 as well for more wonderful adaptions. You can order a copy of this fantastic DVD set on Acorn Media for only $39.99. You can also find it on Amazon.

My Thoughts

Agatha Christie is one of my favorite authors. I enjoy how the mysteries unravel without the help of today's modern forensics. When it comes to small screen adaptions of these classic novels, Acorn Media always does a stellar job.  This holiday season, they have released a few DVD sets perfect for any hardcore fan. THE BEST OF AGATHA CHRISTIE, Volume 1 includes three exciting fan favorites.

And Then There Was None - Set right before WWII, this film takes place on a deserted island. Ten strangers are invited. Before the night is over, one is dead and the rest are suspects.

Five Little Pigs - Caroline was executed for killing her husband, but her daughter Lucy doesn't believe she did it. Years later, Lucy turns to Poirot to solve the cold case and clear her mother's name. 

Death on The Nile - Poirot is trying to enjoy a cruise, but he intervenes when an angry ex tries to make trouble for a pair of newlyweds. Even with his help, someone still turns up dead.
If you know someone who loves Agatha Christie this DVD set would make a great gift. You can find it online at Acorn media for only $39.99. It's also available on Amazon.
