Homemade Peanut Butter Oatmeal Roll-out Dog Treats


From Kayla:

This New Year’s Day I found time to do some holiday baking with my “kids.”

Yup, I’m one of “those people” who spoils their pets endlessly.

I tried a new roll-out cookie recipe.  I knew the dogs would love it because they were much more interested than usual in what I was baking.

Aren’t they adorable? They seem almost too good to eat. And they were.  I took a big bite of the finished cookies and spit it back out.

But I still consider these cookies a success! Yes, I was purposely making dog treats.  They have whole-food ingredients and no sweeteners, so I should have known better.  It was easy to be fooled with how easily they rolled out and how golden and gingerbread-y they look.

You can follow this recipe to make a batch of your own. It’s great because I got my baking fix and have absolutely no temptation to eat the finished cookies!


Smashed Baked Potatoes


We have a new favorite way to eat potatoes thanks to my daughter Kayla.

To start out with I put a insert into the bottom of the pressure cooker.  Then I put about a 1/2 inch of water in the bottom of the pot.  I put my washed potatoes in the pressure cooker.  I cook them on full pressure for about 14 minutes.   I let the pressure release on it’s own.

Then I wipe the potatoes with canola oil.  I smash them down.  Then I sprinkle the potatoes with onion and garlic powder.  I put them in the oven at 425 degrees for about 15 minutes.

The potatoes get a bit of a crust on the outsides and the inside stays soft.  In a way in reminds me of a bread with a crust…or twice baked potatoes without all the extra calories.  I love these potatoes…everyone who has tried them does.

For me, it’s so easy.  I’ll do the pressure cooker part putting enough potatoes in for two meals early in the week.  When I want them for supper I just grab them out of the refrigerator and continue the cooking process.

The other thing I love about these is that I always have all the ingredients I need to make them.  I’ve been tempted to sprinkle a little cheese on them but honestly, they are so good they don’t need it.
