tea and pupcakes

today's tea is orange spice with an orange slice
... a cup of liquid sunshine ...

and my dog has a birthday coming up soon

in fact, his neighborhood dog friends are having birthdays

are all dogs born in March?



1 cup whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 cup peanut butter
1/4 vegetable oil
1/2 cup shredded carrots
1/2 cup applesauce
1 egg
sour cream
mini dog biscuits

preheat oven to 350 degrees
line muffin tin with cupcake papers
whisk together flour and baking soda add the rest of the ingredients and mix well
spoon into muffin cups - almost to the top (makes 6)
bake 25 minutes
let cool
give sour cream a quick mix and "frost" cupcakes with sour cream
top with a mini dog biscuit
(remove paper before serving)


hope your first day of spring is a beautiful one
both inside and out

Thanks for the pupcakes recipe. I'm going to try it this weekend. Both my dogs are born in March - two years apart. Strange, never thought about it before.

The tea looks good, too. Have a great Tuesday. :)

They look so good I don't think I'd be able to convince my boys they are pupcakes! ^..^

Oh your pup has the sweetest face! Happy birthday to him. Jingles will be 8 next month. Maybe all cats are born in April? Ha! Minus the doggy biscuit, those pupcakes sound mighty fine for human consumption. Best wishes to you for a wonderful day! Tammy

P.S. We have tinted windows so the dove picture was taken from inside through the window so as not to scare them away. :)

Happy Birthday to "ruff"! Both our dogs were born in the fall, so appear to be the exception to your March rule. :)

Those pupcakes look too good for our puppy! He prefers chair and table legs-- from antique furniture! (waaaaaah!)

I'm having tea today. :)

Happy birthday to your pup! He's a cutie!
