Ever baked homemade dogs treats?🐾🐶

Try this easy and yummy recipe that will get two paws up from your fur baby for sure!

Making dog biscuits is actually super easy, economical compared to store bought, and can have health benefits as you can control exactly what’s in them. This is the basic recipe I use, and you can adapt it to use other doggy friendly puree fruits or veggies if desired. Pumpkin is a great option because it’s high in fiber, and contains potassium, iron, and vitamin A, among other ingredients.

dsc_0081Homemade dog treats can also be a really cute homemade gift idea to give during the holidays! It’s a fun project for the kids to get involved with too.

I’ve also designed a couple of FREE printable Christmas tags. Just add some treats to a jar or bag and include these gift tags for your doggy pals. And actually you could pair these tags with pretty much any dog related gift!

  • HIP List
  • Print

Have you ever had moments when you're either out of time or out of printer ink, or both, and you really want to keep track of a "Hip" deal or print a valuable coupon in the next day or two? Or what do you do when an outstanding, but pricey, deal is posted and you want to save it for discussion with your significant other? Well, now you're in luck! No more searching through pages of posts to find the coupon or the deal. Simply move the post to your Hip List and access it at your convenience.

How Does the Hip List Work?

It's easy! To use this feature, first head on over here and register and log into your account. Whenever you find a great deal that you want to come back to later at a later time, just click on the HIP List icon located on each post (see images below) and the information will be saved in your account. To remove a post from your HIP List, just click on the HIP List icon and it will be removed.

When logged into your account, you will see the HIP List icon at the bottom of every post if you are viewing in classic view.

If you prefer to view in river view, you will see the HIP List icon located on every post above the post title and to the right.

If you're wanting to print a certain deal, blog post, or the Weekly Store Matchups from your HIP list, click on the small blue printer icon in the upper right corner of the HIP list. This will allow you to customize the information that you want or don't want to include when printing from your HIP list so you're only printing the information that's most important to you! If there are deals (or portions of deals) that you are not interested in printing, just click on the red x button to remove them. To restore a section, click on the green arrow icon in the upper right hand corner.
