Corky Crisps debut!

Puppysitting a few weeks ago had me in the kitchen thinking about what dogs like. On top of getting creative with frozen yogurt, I also developed a peanut butter treat recipe from a collaboration of other recipes and online reading.

The dogs went ga-ga for them. Especially my dog, Corky (up in front). His trademark trick is to spin around in a complete 360° circle, landing in a sitting position, ready to receive a treat. He loved these home made peanut butter treats so much he would spin in four or five complete circles, desperate for me to pass them out!

I thought it'd be a cute business venture. What with my love for cooking, and Corky's love for eating.

After coming up with a cutesy name and Johnny whipping up a logo, I tagged along with Johnny's sister, Di, to a few craft shows. I wanted to see how they'd sell to others. I'm happy to report that I sold out! That gave me the go ahead I needed to move to online sales!

I would absolutely love your support in "liking" Corky Crisps on Facebook.

Also, if you have a dog, or know somebody with dogs, please consider visiting my Etsy store!

Right now I'm offering four sizes of traditional bone shaped treats, as well as two sizes of holiday shaped treats!

Thank you so much guys! Your support of my human food sharing already means so much to me, so I hope it's not a stretch for you to also love my canine cooking ventures!

Corky is the cutest, and his two friends are adorable too!

Basil does the 360 spin at least a couple times, before "breakfast" (which is the word for EVERY Basil meal)...

congrats on the etsy store!

Okay, I am going to have to order some of those for our pup and have you bring them to our lunch on November 21 - I still can't wait to get your Dad's sausage!

Congrats on the job venture!

This is so adorable. And why oh why do they look so tasty? I know they're doggie treats, but I still kind of wanna ice them with nutella and bite into them. AHhaha!

They're a little bland, Sophia, even though they smell like peanut butter cookies while baking. Tastes kind of like pizza crust w/ a hint of peanut butter! haha
