Peanut Butter Dog Treats

Hello Readers!   Today’s recipe is all about dog treats!  These are a favorite of our favorite puppies and so easy that my children have made them several times.  Kid and dog approved!   In all honesty, I love these treats too and will eat them as well.   It is 102 tomorrow here in St. Louis, so we will be inside baking some treats!


So, what’s new?  It seems like forever ago we were hoarding toilet paper and scouring for chicken breast at the stores.  I have grown VERY tired of food blogs with auto-start videos, an entire novella before the recipe, and ads galore.    If you want an update on me, please find Mary Ellen Riley on Facebook.  If you want the recipe – here you go!  Have fun!
