How Many Biscuits in the bowl?

On the Wednesday post I told you the recipe for the peanut butter biscuits and asked how many biscuits do you think I made that day? 

If you haven’t guessed take a look at this photo:

Clue: It’s a lot!
So lets find out the number of biscuits.
Drum roll please…
That day I made 147 biscuits.
All I can say is Riley better like peanut butter biscuits!
Luckily she does!

Have a fab Friday!

Tasty Tuesday- Peanut butter biscuits

You may have seen this recipe before on a different post but today I will add photos and comments on how it went.

It was a nice Sunday morning and Riley had been for a walk then crashed out and gone to sleep so I thought I could give her a nice surprise by making some quick easy peanut butter biscuits.

As you may realise the main ingredient in this recipe is..,

PEANUT BUTTER – which Riley loves!

The other ingredients are:

  • 225ml of skimmed milk
  • 1 table spoon baking powder
  • 250g of wholemeal flour
  • 275g of peanut butter (unsalted)
Here are the step by step instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 190C or gas mark 5 and grease 2 baking trays (yes 2 baking trays!)
  1. Stir together the flour and the backing powder
  1. In another bowl, mix the peanut butter and milk 
  2. Stir in the flour mixture until well blended
  1. Turn out and dough on a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth
  1. Roll out to 1cm thickness and cut into shapes using biscuit cutters or cut into squares with a knife
  1. Place 2 cm apart on the greased trays (I had so many biscuits I had to use 3!)
  2. Put them in the preheated oven for 20 minutes (until light brown)
  3. Leave them on wire racks to cool before giving your canine chum a nice snack
After waking up and smelling the delicious peanut butter smell Riley was instantly in the kitchen.Looking up with those massive eyes that say  feed me what your making now OR ELSE!
Look into my eyes

Okay I sort of gave in but, someone’s got to lick the bowl.

Trust me I will regret it by having to take the sticky  peanut butter that never quite made her mouth later (but made her moustache)! Boy is she a messy eater!
But WARNING all doggy-parents! This makes a lot of biscuits. I’d probably do half the mix next time.

Here’s a little competition for you:

Guess how many peanut butter biscuits we made that day.

Here’s 2 clues

  1. It’s a lot
  2. Here’s a bucket/tin with them in
Answer will be revealed on Friday.

Today is a special day for Scots…

Even dogs want to celebrate…
Well that is very smart.

Scottie dogs, which are the first breed that generally come to mind when you think of Scottish dog breeds, are rising in popularity since the common wealth games opening ceremony in Glasgow where several of this breed where paraded on stage. 

Nice moustache!

Has your dog been enjoying burns night?

Review- puppy bandana

Welcome to our first review of 2015, with Rileys new bandana. Although it took a while to put on it’s rather snazzy. Here is the full review:

So Here is my first thoughts of the new accessory I bought from puppy bandana, when it arrived: Small but nice with simple packaging, looks like it will last.Good quality and nicely made.
It took me a while to put the bandana on Riley as you have to tie it with a knot at the front and she was a bit fidgety, but didn’t try to pull it off or scratch too much once it was on.
Price wise I think £2.99 was a good price plus it was free P&P.
Would I buy one again? Maybe for a special occasion or Halloween but otherwise I think one is enough.

Was the website good? Yes, very colourful and easy to navigate.They had plenty of choice which was great.
How many paws out of 10 would you give it? 7

Riley and the rabbits

Riley has always seemed intrigued by my pet rabbits- Igor and Sesame. When ever I go out to feed them she wants to come to. When ever I go out to clean their hutch she wants to come to. You get the gist, Riley likes the rabbits.


Today (like any other day) Riley came out with me to feed the rabbits and I went inside the pen and shut the gate with the hook clip and left Riley waiting outside the pen. Because it was a cold day (forget cold it was a freezing day!) I stayed with the rabbits a little longer to give them some more straw  to keep them warm e.c.t.

Igor curled up on a cold day

When I had finished with the rabbits I walked out waiting to find Riley looking at me with those puppy eyes that say How could you leave me here? 


Riley wasn’t there! At first I scanned the garden because prehaps she’d seen a squirrel or leaves blowing around. Then I looked down and instead of 2 rabbits munching on the carrot their was 3. Wait one was very fluffy and big, no it wasn’t  a rabbit it was Riley with her bum in the air munching on the carrot I had put in there!

Riley had a mixed look of guilt, laughter and ha I fooled doggy mum on her face.

Both doggy mum and dog have learnt something today, doggy mum has learnt to secure the gate even better and to not trust Riley with waiting for me to finish and give her something nice to bother her.

Riley has learnt not to go in with the rabbits and that carrots taste disgusting!

Luckily the rabbits are fine.

Let it snow..

This morning when Riley woke up and went outside she was shocked by a strange white substance covering her garden. Called.. snow.

It wasn’t a lot of snow, but enough for a little schnauzer puppy to get dirty in!

Hey mum it’s on my moustache!

After a bit of mini mooching…

It was time to go inside and curl up.
Mum I’m NOT LAZY snow is tiring!

Has you’re dog been living in a winter wonderland?
