Backyard BBQ

It's been a while since I've updated this blog! I have been busy baking and updating my other blog, as well as getting outside on lots of walks! This past weekend, we went to a BBQ for which I baked some really fun cupcakes (see below)!

Most recent news: Ellie ate half a stick of butter. Yes, 1/4 cup!
I was baking cupcakes and used a reduced recipe in which I cut off 2 out of 8 tablespoons that are in a stick. After coming back from happy hour, I find the butter wrapper on the floor with only about 2 tablespoons left, so I guess Ellie ate 4 tablespoons before she decided she'd had enough. The good news is that she hasn't thrown up or had any other tummy issues so far!

  1. Oh Ellie! I can't beleive she ate butter! Dogs can eat and handle the strangest things! My last poodle used to sneak stuff off the counters all the was amazing what that dog could digest!

  2. OMG she is the Paula Deen of the dog world! lol!! I hope she is still ok!
    Your baked goods look fantastic!
