Our home is filled with the mouth-watering smells of fall… fragrant pumpkin has filled the entire house! But this time, it’s not anything for us. Two very lucky beagles girls will get these special pumpkin treats!

Homemade Pumpkin Dog Treats
- 2 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
- 2 eggs
- 2/3 cup pure pumpkin puree
- 3 Tbsp crunchy peanut butter (my beagle girls like the crunchy, but smooth works too!)

Summer Corn Pancakes
“When fresh corn is abundant during the summer months, it seems I am always gratefully decobbing and making these tasty pancakes. I chop half of the corn kernels because they are a great contrast to the whole corn kernels. Bacon and fried green tomatoes are delicious accompaniments.”
- 2 eggs
- 2 tablespoons neutral oil
- 1 cup milk
- ½ cup yellow corn flour
- ½ cup unbleached all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 2 cups fresh corn kernels
- Butter and syrup
