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…

Stuffed Cherry Tomatoes


I first made these stuffed tomatoes for a brunch, and they were a huge hit. It's the kind of dish that if you serve it to a crowd, nearly everyone demands the recipe before they leave. I love it because it's so affordable and fairly easy to make, and of course because it's so delicious! It's a perfect little appetizer for entertaining.



INGREDIENTS
  • 4oz grated Parmesan
  • 2.25 oz black olives
  • a few tbs olive oil
  • dash of salt
  • 1/2 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 2 cloves finely minced garlic
  • 2 cartons of fresh cherry tomatoes

INSTRUCTIONS

1. Use a pairing knife to hollow out the tomatoes (on the end opposite of the stem side). They'll naturally stand up if you place them stem-side down.  

2. Mince the olives then combine all of the ingredients. Whenever I make a dish like this with filling and Italian flavors, I love to premix the filling a day or so in advance and keep it in the fridge until the day of the event. All of the flavors seem to meld together and get nice and fragrant. 

3. It's a little tricky to fill small cherry tomatoes. I used a small spoon and the curved part of my pairing knife to smash the filling down into the tomatoes. Enjoy!
