Filming!

30 Apr

Yesterday I had the honor of being the special guest for the taping of 2 separate shows for The Dish on 6   They normally showcase local chefs and restaurants so when I was asked to be on it, I was totally shocked! I am definitely not even in the same realm of amazing-ness as some of their past guests, and plus…I make dog treats.. 🙂

I was extremely nervous about the whole thing because Ive never done a real TV show before. Ive had guest spots on the news and so on, but this was the real deal. I got there in the morning and was greeted my Jenna Lee, the producer and host, and she made me feel right at home. I had some time to get myself together and then began prepping my ingredients. Susan, who works for me then arrived and brought Charlie. Charlie is her therapy dog, and he came to be the taste tester for the show. The show soon started and it went great! I got into the swing of things and ended up having lots of fun. I don’t want to say to much about the show…because you have to watch it! If you don’t live in this area, you will be able to watch it online. I will post the link once it’s up. The show airs on ABC 6, May 10th at 12.30pm and the second show airs August 30th.

Here are a few pictures of the day!

DIY Stepping Stone

28 Apr

This is such an easy and fun DIY project that really gives a personal touch to your garden. It’s great to do with kids, pets or by yourself. I decided to use my old man, Beans, to help me out and i must say he was a great sport!

This is what you’ll need:

  1. Ready to mix Mortar Mix
  2. Plastic mold – any shape or size
  3. Wooden yard stick
  4. Tongue depressor
  5. Decorative stones
  6. Stamps
  7. Large mixing bowl or bucket
  8. Water

The first thing you’ll need to do is mix your mortar mix with water. Just simply follow the instructions on how much water to add. You’ll want it to be a cookie batter consistency.

Next, simply pour the mixture into your mold.

Using your wooden yard stick, push the mixture to all corners of the mold so that it’s equally distributed and smooth the mixture so that you have a flat surface.

From here on out, you can do whatever you want. You can be as creative as you like. I decided to use some decorative stones, a stamp and Beans’ paw prints.

After creating a border, I then decided to use my old man Chihuahua, Beans.

He was such a good boy!

If you use a dog, please remember to clean their paws immediatey after with warm water and dry their paws thoroughly. I then finished it off with using the tongue depressor to write, BEANS. Let your stone dry for 24 hours, and then pull the sides of the mold slowly to loosen the stone and then carefully turn upside down and your stone will release.

Lastly, you will want to clean your bowl or bucket out before the mortar mix dries. The best way to do this is to take it outside and wash it out. You don’t want any of that mix going down your kitchen sink!

And that’s that. You’ll have a fun garden stepping stone that will lend a personal touch to your garden this summer.

Thursday afternoon sounds like a good time to start blogging.

25 Apr

For sometime now I’ve been wanting to start a blog. Just my own little corner of the internet to share my day to day life. I own a dog bakery, so naturally my life revolves around dogs. I’m passionate about everything dog related! So I have a feeling that this blog will be filled with all things, dog. I’m married. It’s been 2 and a bit years since I said I do, and to date, that has been the absolute best decision of my life.  I’ve owned my dog bakery for 2 years now, The Bone-i-Fide Bakery it’s called and it’s a pretty neat place to call mine. Owning a business for the first time has it’s ups and downs and has taught me so much in a short amount of time. Every day brings a new challenge, new friends and lots of cute pups. 🙂

Meet my crew! Patrick, my husband, and below him is Jake, next to him is Frank the pug (ish), above him is Beans, and on top is, Emma. I also have 2 cats…Oliver on the left and Izzy on the right.
