L De Lolita Lempicka, a Perfume Review

I first smelled this perfume in a Sephora catalog that was mailed to my home. It was the only one that caught my attention out of the ten samples. There are very few scents that appeal to my selective taste. What I generally seek is a fragrance that is not flowery because I am allergic to many of the strong flowery scents plus they just smell horrible on me. What I need is a fragrance that is more oriental with base notes of vanilla. There are very few scents that agree with my body chemistry. Angel by Thierry Mugler is one that I love and there is another called Flowerbomb by Viktor  amp; Rolf. This L de Lolita Lempicka is pretty much in the same family as those. The good thing is that this fragrance is less expensive.

Angel costs $160.00

Flowerbomb costs $150.00

L de Lolita Lempicka costs $89.00 almost half the price

Concept

The marketing concept of this perfume left me a bit confused but that is the only questionable trait of this perfume. Let me explain. The perfume is supposed to be based upon a mermaid and the sea. When I think of the sea I consider smelling something like Sand and Sable (an old perfume that smells like the beach) If not that then perhaps something with coconut. I really don’t know that much about marketing a perfume but I surely wouldn’t link a woodsy oriental to the sea.

Packaging

The bottle is supposed to look like a pebble but I think it resembles a whimsical heart. The aqua blue bottle is embellished with a starfish caught in a golden net and a gold letter L charm. I believe that the actual perfume inside the bottle is what is colored bluish-green, I am pretty sure the actual bottle is clear. The bottle comes packaged in an orange box which is not very pretty in my opinion. As I mentioned earlier it is not what I would expect the bottle or packaging to look like. I don’t think I would even consider this to be a negative it just leaves me with a huge question mark, that is all.

Fragrance

Top Notes: Bitter Orange, Orange Flower, and Cinnamon

Mid Notes: Immortal Flower and Vanilla

Base Notes: Woods, Amber, and Musk

This fragrance is delightfully well blended. The smell just works, it is a tad spicy but not overpowering. It flirtatiously lingers without being nauseating.

The scent lasts for about 8 hours without having to reapply.

You can smell each layer clearly and they are all perfectly combined. The orange smells more like an orange blossom than the actual fruit it is subtle but it still there, The vanilla smells sort of like a toasty marshmallow sprinkled with cinnamon. I just love how each of the notes are obviously present but none of them dominate. It is perfection, they really knew just when to back off of certain smells to create the ideal composition.

I would most often wear this in the winter during the daytime.

Where to buy

You can purchase it at Sephora but I have recently found it at Amazon.com and Ebay for much less than the retail price. You just need to make sure that you are buying the real Eau de Parfum and not a tester. The difference between the perfume and the tester is that the tester wears off much quicker. I like my perfume to linger so I don’t have to reapply. You will also see a lot of old bottles on Ebay in which the scent has turned. These are easy to spot because the perfume will change color. The old ones turn into a greenish-brown you will want to go for a more green/blue color. The less brown the better and fresher.

There is no dearth to the brand of perfumes that you get to find in the market but most of them are expensive and people too are spoilt for choice as they get many recommendations from friends that relieve their own experience of having tried out a brand new perfume that came out in recent times.

The Ins and Outs of GPT (Get Paid To) Sites

I am sure everyone has heard about GPT or Get Paid To sites and Profit accumulator. They are everywhere as you learn about how much to start profit accumulator. Before you sign up for one there are a few things you should know. They are not all created equal. Some are scams. Some are legit. My purpose for this article is to hopefully lead you in the right direction. To the ones that will help you make money online. I will include the ones that are tried and true by me. The ones that I have been paid by.

When you find a GPT site that you think you want to try, search for it, and see what comes up. You will most likely get links to message boards, where people are talking about the GPT sites. Do not let one or two disgruntle postings deter you though. These are often from people who have been banned because of cheating. You want to look for posts from people who are showing proof of payment so that you know these sites actually pay. Do not take people’s words on it. They will say anything to get you to sign up.

Go to GPT’s website. They often have the site’s statistics on the home page. Look for ones that have been around a while. I am not saying that the new ones are bad, but the world of GPT’s are going through so changes, and the less established companies may not handle them so well. The GPT sites often have forums you can join without being a member. These links will be on the home page. These forums are biased since they belong to the GPT owners so take what you read with a grain of salt, but they often have proof of payment listed on there. Read the TOS �⒬”terms of service, these are often on the home page as well. You have to obey these or you will be deleted and any monies earned will be forfeited.

Now the next step is to sign up. Be prepared to have to verify who you are. There is a lot of fraud going on with GPT sites right now and they are tightening the purse straps so to speak. If you join and decide you do not like it, you do not have to participate. Just forget that you are even a member. The first thing to do once you join if you haven’t already is read the How-To guides. These are written by the GPT site owners and will help you get your offers credited. If your offers are denied this does not necessarily mean you did something wrong. It just means that the advertisers did not give credit. Sometimes offers are not approved or denied, they stay in the pending folder. These offers can be deleted from the folder and redone.

Here are a couple of the sites I have been paid by numerous times. They are all fabulous sites.

Deal Barbie You get a $3.00 sign up bonus and They have a three-level referral system: 15% first level, 3% second level, 2% third level. You also earn dollars signs which you can trade for gift cards, money added to your account, or other items. Plus you get promo codes for free money and dollars signs. You can also earn loyalty points which are cashed in the same assigns. The minimum cash out is $20.00.

Cash Lagoon You make 15% of what your referrals make. Your earn points instead of money, but for the most part, 1 point=$1.00. $2.00 minimum PayPal payout and they pay within 48 hours.

Swat Cash They pay 20% of your referrals earnings. $15.00 minimum payout that is automatic once you reach it.

Fairy Tale Treasure This is a newer site. They have a two-level referral system: 12% first level, 2% second level. You earn magic lamps along with cash that can be cashed in for money into your account. They also offer Pay to Click, promo codes, and trivia questions. $10.00 minimum payout and they payout twice a month.

Boiler Services- A Fine Kettle of Fish for Heating Things Up

No one can claim to have all the learning and knowledge of each and every topic in existence as that is impossible to do and yet we have numerous so called experts who claim the exact same thing of having learnt so much that there is nothing more left to learn.

Well, all one can say is god bless them and may they prosper for eternity but a true expert in anything would not brag the same as such people are more humble and modest in their approach for they know that exaggeration of one’s own credentials only indicates arrogance and conceit.

Today’s topic is on the same lines as although you may have basic or even sufficient knowledge about it but the experts that utilize this object all the time never claim to know everything about it.

Briefing

Boiler is the topic of discussion for this article and it is defined as a large container type vessel that stores liquid fluid for heating so that it would come in use for studying the different aspects of heating applications that come into play here that need to be analyzed.

You don’t need to be an expert on vessels to know that boilers have been used for heating purposes for a long time since the 1800s when it was the original terminology for the vessels that could handle low or medium pressure.

Now we have a more updated version of boiler that can take up high pressure of heat for which it is also termed as steam generator because of the involvement of steam into the picture.

So for an object that has such a long history it is only but natural that the current generation would have little to no knowledge about it due to lack of interest but people that are using it each day in factories would be in the know wouldn’t they?

Well, it isn’t always the case as certain people are still ignorant about its maintenance as it requires regular hauling that is also called boiler servicing at regular intervals.

Service before Self

Let us take a look at some important points on how to keep your boiler working fine by keeping it in maintenance from time to time so that it would be clear for those people that know little about it.

Whenever you purchase a boiler from the market, you are sure to look at the warranty period before buying it so if you want a replacement, then you have to have it serviced at the end of each year.

You need to have adequate knowledge about the best boiler installation in town so that you would know where to look so make sure to research about it online because it would be dangerous to give this task to engineers that aren’t qualified to handle them because it is illegal.

A good boiler service should know what its job is that mainly involves checking the boiler thoroughly to ensure that the pressure valve is in working order and all the controls are effective with perfect working condition.

Gaming

Simple Bowling Lessons

“Okay, Choc, I don’t have a lot of time for all the details; I just want to go out with my friends every once in a while and bowl fairly well – just enough to beat them every time that we do. I also don’t want to buy any equipment because the balls at the center and the rented shoes are just fine for the amount of times we go. We usually get together about three or four times a year to bowl.” Thanks for any help, ‘Wanna Beat My Buddies.’

Well, WBMB, I can’t promise that you’ll be able to beat them every time you go bowling but, I can give you some simple tips and suggestions for improving your game. That way, you’ll at least win most of the time. That is, until they read this article, start practicing, or get more serious about their bowling. From experience, I can tell you that there is no one who can promise you that you’re going to win all the time. Even if you are a 15 year old up against a 2 year old, I would still be hesitant to make that promise – just kidding!

Sometimes it becomes difficult to make people understand because maturity does not come with age as today you can find a 30 year old talk and behave immaturely and also a 15 year old become mature and responsible at that tender age and bowling requires you to understand the techniques in detail that you can through About Bowling Balls website.

Anyway, without knowing much about your overall style, I’ll take on this task from a “blind” point-of-view and give you some general pointers that should help you in your quest to be the best in your circle of friends. I make three assumptions: (a) you have already selected your bowling ball and it fits properly and is a good weight for you, (b) you know how to walk on the approach to deliver your ball on the lane, and (c) you know that you should stay behind the foul line.

Here’s the “Choc-List” for you, WBMB:

1) If you haven’t already, learn to throw a “straight ball.” This is done by releasing the ball with your thumb in what is known as the “twelve o’ clock position.” (Imagine the face of a clock – your fingers are six o’ clock and your thumb is high noon.) While standing upright, let the bowling ball dangle at your side and with your knuckles facing to the rear, make sure you are looking directly down at your thumb joint (the rest of your thumb is inside the hole). Whenever you release the ball on the lane, your hand and finger positions should be like that. Any twisting right or left will make the ball move in the corresponding direction so you have to make sure you keep your hand as straight as possible.

2) Look out on the lane and find what is known as the “arrows,” which are actually elongated triangles, or arrowheads. Locate the 3rd arrow from the right gutter if you are right-handed (or the opposite side ones if you are left-handed). This arrow will be used to line yourself up for every ball you throw down the lane.

3) For your first ball, look at what is known as the “pocket” which is the front-most (head pin) and the one immediately to the right of it (again, opposite for left-handers). From your starting position, draw an imaginary straight line from the pocket back through the 3rd arrow up to your throwing arm. It is best if your body is closer to the middle of the lane (laterally) rather than too far to the right or the left. Keeping your focus on this line and the 3rd arrow, walk straight on the lane approach and throw your straight ball making sure you watch it roll over the 3rd arrow. If your ball continually goes to the right of the pocket, move your body to the right; if your ball continually goes on the head pin (or further), move your body left. You are using the 3rd arrow as a pivot point and moving your imaginary straight line to compensate for the amount you are missing the pocket.

4) If you do not make a strike, line up your second (spare) ball with either the single pin left standing; or, for multiples, the pin that is closest to you – we’ll call this the “object” pin. As in throwing the pocket ball, draw a line from the “object” pin back through the 3rd arrow, and to your throwing arm shoulder. Move your body left or right in the starting stance so that you keep the straight line, remembering that you will walk parallel to this imaginary line to deliver your ball as straight as you can toward your target. (Again, if you miss your spare left or right, pivot your throwing line on the 3rd arrow by adjusting your body left or right accordingly.) Splits are exceptions: for small splits, line up your target for the center of the missing space; for larger splits, pick the side that has the most pins and go for the pin count rather than trying to make the spare.

Let me know if this helps you, WBMB. Without face-to-face coaching, I can’t tell if you have (can) comprehend the instructions given. In any event, email me again and thanks for the question.

First Person: Can I Make Money with Coffee News USA?

In a previous article, I talked about the considerations regarding becoming a Coffee News USA franchisee. In that article I briefly mentioned the basics on the costs and potential sales revenue for this business. In this article, I wanted to get into a little more detail on how to maximize your revenue with this business and maximize your profits.

What does it cost to publish an edition of Coffee News?

There is a weekly content licensing fee that you are charged on a per franchise basis. The fee for your first franchise is $85 per week. If you own additional franchises, those are billed at an just $25 per week. I was told during my experience with this that they generally bill these fees on a monthly basis, but it is recommended you account for these fees weekly to avoid a massive unexpected deduction at the first of each month from your account. In order to earn money from coffee delivery singapore, the person should have all the information available about the requirements. The publishing of the news will be done at the news channel to offer the correct knowledge about the products. In the first month, various exceptions will be provided to the person for the benefit. 

There is also the cost associated with printing the weekly publication to be accounted for. For your first year, Coffee News requires that you use a printer they are affiliated with in Maine who is well versed in the layout and printing requirements of this brand. The average printing cost with UPS Ground shipping to most parts of the United States will come to about $0.10 per copy. When you start running larger editions with more copies, you can expect that rate to drop to as low as $0.06 – $0.08 per copy. The average edition has 2,000 copies printed, making this an estimated weekly cost of $200.

In short, a weekly publication will have an upfront cost of about $285 if you have one franchise with just one edition printing. This is the number we will use for our example here.

What should I charge for my Advertising Space?

There are 32 advertising spots available on your editions of Coffee News USA. The rate you could charge per space will vary greatly and is based on number of locations and consumer traffic. For a simple basis, the recommended lowest weekly rate for one of these ads in most cases is $20 per week.

If you get 32 advertisers to commit to a space at the $20 per week rate, your gross income would be $640 per edition per week. After your expenses of $285 you would net a profit of about $355. This assumes that you run this route yourself and that you do not have to outsource any of the process (sales, distribution, etc.). Granted this may not seem like a lot of money for the effort that goes into the development of a single edition. Be aware that there are nearly no limits to how many editions you can publish within a franchised territory and that you could own up to twenty franchises in total as you grow your business. There is a franchisee in my area of residence that owns five franchises and distributes nearly a dozen editions each week. Even with the cost of hired help, just imagine the potential for net profits from all those editions you would have as you grow your Coffee News USA franchise.

The Best Organic CBD Oil Products For Dogs

CBD oil products are lauded for their ability to ease anxiety and pain. Did you know that they also have similar pain and anxiety relief for dogs? Some CBD oil products. If you are looking for the best CBD products that you can use for your dogs and other pets, we recommended you read this article. Without further ado, let’s start:

  1. King Kanine 

If you are looking for CBD oil products that are made specifically for pets such as dogs and cats, look no further than King Kanine. This company’s product line includes CBD oil, tinctures, snacks, soothing sprays, and balms. They obtain their CBD oil from Phytocannabinoid-rich (PCR), a natural way of obtaining broad spectrum oil.

The CBD they extracted are then processed using krill oil, a component that is rich in omega-3. Krill oil also contains important fatty acids that are considered to be a powerful prompt for giving CBD extract to your pets. A lot of alternative veterinarians suggest King Kanine merchandise.

King Kanine products are all tested by a certified laboratory, and you will get proof of that with every item that you buy from the company. Their products are sourced from natural hemp, so they should be free of THC, the component of marijuana that causes intoxication. Additionally, their source plants are free from pesticides and solvents, and they use the expensive CO2 process of extraction.

  1. HempMy Pet

HempMy Pet produces most of its product offers from their owned hemp farm that organically grows hemp in Colorado. HempMy Pet employs hemp seed oil combined with coconut oil, which is a healthy nutritional supplement.

The products of this company are produced with a quality similar to CBD oil intended for humans, and as such, the THC amount is no greater than 0.3%. Purchasing products from HempMy Pet will also allow you to support their animal rescue efforts, as well as their animal sanctuaries.

HempMy Pet is doing work on a new selection of hemp-infused products that contain CBG (cannabigerol) instead of CBD. CBG is extracted from cannabis herbs, and it also does not intoxicate, similar to CBD. Premature studies have demonstrated that CBG has a great potential when it comes to providing relief.

  1. cbdMD paw 

Most of the products and brands listed in this article are expensive, since they are either using the CO2 extraction process, pioneers in the CBD oil industry, or a reputable and trusted brand. If you are looking for an alternative brand that will not dent your wallet, you can find affordable CBD oil products from cbdMD paw. This brand is preferred by a lot of CBD enthusiasts who are not keen on spending a fortune on CBD products. cbdMD has a lineup of CBD products created for humans, and pets which includes canines, felines, and horses.

cbdMD paw products have CBD processed in MCT oil, which contains no preservatives. Aside from CBD oils, they also offer treats such as chewables, snacks, and topical creams. Their products are vegan friendly, free of pesticides and solvents, and grown in local farms.

Having said that, products from cbdMD paw has zero information about the extraction method that they are using, so it is safe to conclude that they are using cheap extraction methods. Additionally, although it is stated that their farms utilize natural farming techniques to grow hemp, they didn’t mention that the hemp they use for their products is 100% natural.

  1. Green Roads

One of the most popular CBD oil manufacturers, Green Roads has extended their reach, now producing CBD oil products for pets as well. Their products are not that expensive, however, they don’t have a lot of reviews yet since they are just new to the CBD for the pets industry. Also, they only have CBD oil at the moment.

Green Roads CBD oil is made with MCT oil, which is very easy for pets to digest. It is also very safe and healthy since every bottle is free from chemicals, pesticides and insecticides. Most of the COA information is accessible through a QR code printed on the packaging of their product, so that is another assurance of their product’s quality.

Dielectric Mirror- New Age Mirror Type

We human beings are an extremely obsessive lot and it isn’t just about one thing or particular person but many that need to be looked into. If there is anything that humans are most obsessed about, it is themselves and no other.

Yes, that’s right, human beings are quite self obsessed if you look at it from a general point because everyone wants to see themselves far ahead of others in the race of life and climb to the topmost position of the social ladder, which is nothing wrong as long as they do it within the bounds of morality and hard work.

They are also obsessed with their looks and want to become the handsomest/prettiest person in the world which is why you would see most of them looking at their features in the mirror from time to time, which brings us to the topic of mirrors but they aren’t the regular ones.

New Age Device 

Everyone is aware about the term mirror and what it looks like but you can’t say the same about dielectric mirror because it isn’t as mentioned in discussions as its more erstwhile counterpart and for obvious reasons.

A dielectric mirror has many thick and thin layers across its surface and we need to understand the meaning of dielectric to understand the entire concept better so that our vision is clear.

It cannot be classified as simply a mirror made from glass in true sense because it doesn’t fall into that category as it also consists of optical lens that make up most of its layers but the reflection is quite blurred compared to what appears in a normal mirror because the reflection is quite clear in that one.

It is the optical coating surrounding the various layers of the dielectric mirror is what differentiates it from a normal one but this new age device cannot be understood by everyone as it is a complex chapter in the field of mirror physics.

Light Interception

Dielectric mirrors are a phenomenon that functions purely on the basis of light interference where two waves collide with each other and superimpose to form a much bigger wave of the amplitude that is more of a constructive interference among the various collisions that keep taking place in this field.

Now it is important to mention here that various designs have a different structural mode that is complicated based on the optical mechanism that makes it an interesting phenomenon to behold as one rarely gets to view it on a regular basis.

Light interference is quite unique where the wavelength of anything depends on how fast the light travels and one whose speed is faster than that of sound, which is why scientists are still researching over it in the hopes of unveiling more about this mystery.

The waves are derived from complicated mathematical formulae and calculations where two waves are added to find the sine wave equation of the amplitude in question where trigonometry also comes into play.

To understand the concept of dielectric mirrors would take a long time as one needs patience and an open mind to determine various characteristics.

Health

Boosting Your Immune System Naturally

If by an apple a day you mean the entire panoply of fruits, vegetables and herbs including teas, then you are on the right track. By eating a large variety of these natural foods in meals and homemade juices, you will receive many of the micronutrients your immune system needs to keep you healthy naturally.

Whenever possible buy organic fruits, vegetables and herbs, as this will protect you from pesticide residue that may be found on inorganic produce. Where you cannot find organic produce, inorganic produce is better than nothing. But, don’t forget to wash both organic and inorganic produce before you eat or juice them.

Washing your fruits, vegetables and herbs should cost you nothing more than finding a large bowl, 1 tablespoon of table salt, and 1 tablespoon of lemon juice. Fill the bowl with water about an inch to the brim, add the table salt and lemon juice, and stir until the salt dissolves. Put the produce in the mixture for 5 minutes, drain out the mixture and refill the bowl with fresh water and rinse the produce. After rinsing they are ready to be eaten or juiced.

Fruits and vegetables you may want to eat or drink in meals or juices to boost your immune system will include watermelons, winter squash, avocados, grapefruit, asparagus, garlic, tomatoes, potatoes, okra, cauliflower, broccoli, cantaloupe, carrot, oranges, peaches and strawberries. With the organic ingredients, the rankings of the microbiome and immune system products should be checked. Complete research can be made at the online search engines to get the best relief. The vegetables will be herbal and organic for the health of the person without side-effects. The drinking and consumption will be favorable for the person for long period. 

That said, it is important to know that fruits, vegetables and herbs do not cure diseases, they maintain good health once you have acquired it. Therefore, not going to see your doctor when you are sick, and hoping that fruits, vegetable and herbs will cure you is a bad idea.

Having regular medical check-ups to uncover any hidden illness you might have before it is too late should be your top priority. Early discovery of diseases are much easier to cure and cost less than when in their advance stages. Once you are medically cured, you can then maintain your good health naturally with juices made from fruits, vegetables and herbs, in addition to a balanced diet and regular age-appropriate physical exercise.

These sensible foods and physical exercise will go to strengthen your immune system, responsible for protecting your organs and internal body processes. Your immune system comprises of specialized cells, proteins, tissues and organs designed to defend your body against invading microorganisms and harmful substances.

The major players in your body immune system are the white cells or leukocytes, produced in the bone marrow. Their job is to seek out disease-causing microorganisms and toxic substances, and destroy them.

Leukocytes are of two kinds: phagocytes and lymphocytes. Phagocytes are cells that capture and chew up invading microorganisms, while lymphocytes recognize previous micro-invaders and helps the body to destroy them. Lymphocytes are made up of B lymphocytes and T lymphocytes, both important in your body defense system.

So far I have been talking about specialized cells responsible for defending your body. When healthy, these cells are able to fully defend your body against disease-causing microorganisms and toxic substances. However, they can be weakened or completely destroyed by certain immune deficiencies.

Immunodeficiency Disorder is when part of the immune system is missing or not working properly. An example of this immune deficiency is AIDS; where the B lymphocytes, T lymphocytes or phagocytes are either severely weakened or destroyed.

Autoimmune Disorder is when the immune system mistakenly attacks the body healthy organs and tissues, as though they were invading microorganisms. An example of this deficiency is lupus.

Allergic Disorder is an overreaction of the immune system to exposure to antigens in the environment. An example is asthma. Allergens in the air will provoke an allergic disorder resulting in sneezing, and in severe cases anaphylaxis.

Cancer of the immune system is when the immune cells reproduce out of control. For example, abnormal growth of the the leukocytes and lymphoid tissues will cause cancers such as, lymphoma and leukemia in children and in adults.

When diagnosed with any of these immune deficiencies, get the best medical care available to you; and tell your doctor about your regular intake of homemade juices from fruits, vegetables and herbs. Tell your doctor also about the type of teas you are drinking to help him or her evaluate and incorporate your effort to naturally boost your immune system into your overall treatment.

You will notice that I have put a lot of emphasis on the cell to press the argument that the key to maintaining good health naturally is taking care of your cells. Once your cells are provided the right micronutrients from homemade juices, a balanced diet and adequate oxygen from regular age-appropriate physical exercise, your immune system will get a boost, and keep you healthy naturally.

Easy, Healthy Dog Cookie (or Treat) Recipes

With four large dogs in the family, I’ve had to evaluate the nutrition of the food and treats that we buy to ensure long, healthy lives for our faithful companions. You’d be surprised by how many dog food companies produce sub-par meals and snacks that do more harm than good. Here are some easy recipes (most with ingredients you probably already have) you can use to make your own dog treats, giving your furry friend years of longevity. These are three treat/cookie recipes that my dogs prefer. I hope yours likes them as well!

Penny’s Peanut Butter Dog Treats Recipe (for the peanut butter loving dog):

  • 2 cups whole-wheat (or regular baking) flour
  • 1 tbsp. baking powder
  • 1 cup peanut butter (Jif seems to work best)
  • 1 cup milk (canned or fresh, stay away from soymilk)

Preheat oven to 375’F. In a bowl, combine the dry ingredients (flour and baking powder). In a separate bowl, mix the wet ingredients (peanut butter and milk). Add the dry ingredients to the wet and combine thoroughly. Take the dough out of the bowl, place on a lightly floured surface and knead (be sure everything is combined). Roll dough to 1/4 inch thickness and use a cookie cutter to cut out shapes or alternatively use a knife to cut squares (dropping directly on a cookie sheet doesn’t work well for this recipe, uniform thickness is key). Bake for about 15 minutes on a greased baking sheet until lightly brown. Remove immediately, cool on a rack, and store in an airtight container. Cookies will last several days; frozen treats will last 3-4 months.

Sammy’s Swell Breath Buster Dog Cookies Recipe (for the dog with bad breath):

  • 2 cups whole wheat (or regular baking) flour
  • 1/2 cups cornmeal
  • 1/3 cups chopped fresh mint (1 tbsp dried mint)
  • 1/2 cups chopped fresh parsley (1.5 tbsp dried parsley)
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 6 tbsp safflower (or vegetable) oil

Preheat oven to 350′. In a mixing bowl, combine flour, cornmeal, chopped mint and parsley. On a lightly floured surface, roll out the dough to about 1/4‚Ä≥ thickness. Cut dough in to shapes with cookie cutters or use a knife to cut in to squares (dropping directly on a cookie sheet doesn’t work well for this recipe, uniform thickness is key). Place shapes on to lightly greased cookie sheet. Bake for about 40 min and allow treats to stay in the oven a few hours or overnight before removing. Store in an airtight container in the fridge.

Daisy and Dixie’s Favorite Breakfast Bars Recipe (this recipe makes lots of cookies for the large canine family):

  • 12 cup oatmeal
  • 4 cup whole wheat (or regular baking) flour
  • 8 eggs
  • 3/4 cup oil (vegetable works best)
  • 2/3 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup molasses
  • 2 cups milk (evaporated or fresh)
  • Optional:
  • 1 can solid pack pumpkin or 1 large mashed sweet potato
  • 3-4 mashed bananas

Preheat oven to 325′. Use a very large bowl for this recipe (must be able to hold 16 cups of dry ingredients). Mix everything together with hands (it’s easiest to start with dry and add wet, stirring together continuously) and pat on to greased cookie sheets about 1/4″ to 1/2″ thick. Cook for an hour, then let cookies cool on baking sheets for about an hour before breaking them in to whatever size your dog prefers.
