Gift Guide for the Dog Lover

I'm so excited to bring you guys today's holiday gift guide. This one is for all of the #dogmoms out there (and #dogdads). My husband and I have a German Shepherd named Emma (who is currently in a time out for pooping inside...again), but just like our other kids, we still love her. We'd also really love it if she'd quit going potty inside, but that is beside the point. The point is there is no shame in spoiling your sweet fur baby, especially during the holidays!! And while some of these gifts are items for your dog, some are great gift ideas for the dog lover in your life too.


The Dogist 2018 Wall Calendar by Elias Weiss Friedman author of The Dogist, for example, is the perfect Christmas gift for someone who loves dogs.



These super cute Christmas Plaid Dog Collars by Mr. Bow Tie Boutique would be the perfect holiday gift for doggies and dog owners alike! Whether you have family holiday photos coming up, or you simply want your furry friend to look festive for those…

Easy Cranberry Spice Tea Cake


Warning: Boxed cake mix is an "ingredient" in this recipe. That is in part what makes it easy. During the busy holidays, it's necessary to have some easy dishes, especially for entertaining! Though if you want to make this 100% from scratch, start with a classic spice cake recipe. If you're also the type to turn your nose up at canned cranberry sauce, here is a recipe for jellied cranberry sauce from scratch.

INGREDIENTS
  • 1 pkg. moist spice-cake mix
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 c milk
  • 1/3 c veg oil or melted butter
  • 1 can (1 lb.) Ocean Spray whole cranberry sauce
  • 1 cup fresh cranberries
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • dash of nutmeg (optional)

Prepare the boxed cake mix according to directions then add in the cranberry sauce and extra cinnamon and nutmeg until thoroughly combined, and gently fold in the fresh cranberries. *If making the cake from scratch, add the cranberry sauce to the wet mixture before combining with dry ingredients, and gently fold in cranberries after all other ingredients have been combined.


Bake at 350 (cupcakes - about 20-25 min, loaf pan  40-45  min). I made mine in loaf pans to make a tea cake and topped it of with cream cheese frosting. Garnish with fresh sage leaves and cranberries.
