This is what I tell my awesome pal, Dolly Brown Dog: “A recipe for mommy, and a recipe for Dolly“! As we approach this holiday season, it is with full and glad hearts that we offer up to you two of our most favorite (borrowed) recipes:
Pumpkin Goo for humans and Pumpkin n Peanut Butter biscuits for pets. I must warn though, neither of these are good for watching our weights so partake in moderation!
