Here’s a summary of products we’ve come across that we now would not live without, in no specific order… any would make a well-appreciated and loved gift : )
Our Basset Hounds, “The Girls,” love walking and running on the beach – especially Rosie! Rosie is the big-headed tri-color who loves the beach. She came from an abusive situation and is still afraid of a lot of things… when she gets on the beach though she is one with the world!
Here they are at one of our favorite beaches – Cape San Blas, FL.
We make these delicious deviled eggs weekly. You’ll love them – they are great as snack, side dish, in the Oh My Dee-lish Veggie Bitzer Salad (recipe and video coming soon) or on a Tastilicious Buitin Bacon Burger (recipe and video coming soon).
Deviled eggs are an excellent source of protein and are on Johnny Bowden’s “The 150 Healthiest Foods on Earth.” As Johnny says, “containing all nine essential amino acids, they’re loaded with vitamins and minerals that help your eyes, your brain, and your heart.”
These “Easy As” Ginger Deviled Eggs have a light zingy, though not overwhelming ginger/curry flavor. They are easy to make – just remember: 4 dry ingredients, 6 wet ingredients – and easy to clean up, too. Simply combine all ingredients in a baggie, smush it all together, use it as a tool to fill the egg white halves and then toss the bag out! No muss, no fuss.

P.S. People will look at you oddly if you gift them an egg cooker… then, after a few months, they will tell you how much they LOVE it! : )
Cooking the perfect hard-boiled egg can be challenging… and peeling hard-boiled eggs can be a nuisance, too. It doesn’t need to be!

Have you shopped around to ensure you are paying the best price on you or your pup’s prescription medicines? It can make a big difference!
Dog medicines/prescriptions, and sometimes even human prescriptions, are not covered by insurance. If your pup dog has on-going medical challenges that require a prescription – the costs can add up. Using GoodRx.com has saved us a pretty penny or two.

Dogs, Prescriptions, Health Issues : (
Our youngest, Ashley, was diagnosed with epilepsy as a pup. At approximately the age of five we had to start giving her multiple prescriptions to keep the seizures at bay (both grand mal and focal). Check back for our video series on dogs with epilepsy, coming soon.
Pup dogs with health issues can be challenging. Multiple dogs with multiple issues can drive you a bit mad. We have three Basset Hounds who each have their own idiosyncrasies. It’s time to get organized and make this more fun for everyone!
Watch this video for several tips on how easy it is to give your dogs their pills:
