I love November! Not only do I get to spend time with family in the Howard household, but I get to eat yummy, homemade vegan dishes (ex. Mother’s Mushroom Gravy). I can’t wait to savor Mother’s yearly Thanksgiving dinner, my mouth waters just thinking about it (and it doesn’t take a lot to make a Basset drool!). In the meantime, I’m hoping I can convince my favorite chef to make as many pumpkin flavored recipes as possible before the season ends. If you’re looking to change things a bit this year, this recipe would make a pawmazing alternative to the traditional pumpkin pie. Enjoy! Continue reading

I <3 Autumn!
I love dressing up for Halloween (wait until you see my new costume!).
I love going to Halloween parties and people admiring my pawsome costumes.
I love going to my garden and enjoying the different shades of reds, browns, yellows, and oranges.
I love helping Mother prepare delicious dishes with pumpkin, cinnamon, apples, brown sugar, and nutmeg.
Most of all, I love curling up in my favorite princess bed as the house cools down and the days grow shorter and colder.
There’s so much to enjoy about October! In honor of this pawmazing month, I’m sharing with you a recipe with a special fall ingredient: PUMPKIN! And it’s not just another pumpkin recipe, it’s a vegan pumpkin MUFFINS recipe, YUM! Enjoy!
This recipe is for human consumption. Research what ingredients are toxic to dogs (and cats) before letting your four-legged family have a bite (or lick). And remember, moderation is the key! Continue reading

I finally have the chance to lie down on my favorite princess bed and tell my assistant what to type for my pawsome blog. Blindness won’t stop a celebrity like me from posting delicious recipes and offering my dear fans a glimpse of my glamorous life (and menu)! Mother and I have been obsessed with Rawmazing ever since the summer started (check out their website and you’ll understand why!). Last weekend, I had the incredible opportunity to help Mother clean up dishes after she made Rawmazing’s Raw Yam and Carrot Savory Pancakes. Since I haven’t posted anything new in a while, I’m going to be a great friend and share this treat. Enjoy! Continue reading

I’ve had a tough couple of weeks. Mother found out I had a corneal ulcer about two weeks ago and I was getting eyedrops non-stop. Yesterday, my amazing vet Dr. Federica Maggio from Tufts VETS gave me some great news! My eye is finally healing thanks to her treatment and she won’t have to remove it. I only need eyedrops four times a day instead of five (believe me, that’s a big difference in my busy household)! Even though I’m blind now, I’m pretty happy that I get to keep my eye. I was worried my modeling career would be ruined. In order to celebrate, I’m going to start embracing the coming of Autumn by posting a delicious pumpkin recipe. I might be blind, but I still enjoy all the delicious aromas that come with the season. As a bonus, I’ll add a link to a Vegan Pumpkin Spice Latte recipe to go with this delicious cheesecake. Prepare your sweet tooth because you’re in for a fantastic treat! Continue reading

1186333_10153206796750486_1041407230_nI haven’t been feeling that great for the last couple of days. Last Thursday, Mother found out I have a corneal ulcer, probably caused by glaucoma. She spent her entire birthday taking care of me and putting eye drops repeatedly to help my eye heal. I wasn’t feeling like a spokesmodel, so in order to cheer me up (and to celebrate her birthday), she prepared another wonderful recipe from Rawmazing. The bite-sized and raw cherry tarts are so yummy you won’t be able to have just one. Of course, I could only have a bite or two since this is mostly for humans, but I enjoyed every lick! Please visit the Rawmazing website for more delicious recipes. Continue reading

1185666_10153156523250486_1414703565_nMother recently posted a picture of a beautiful-looking tart on her social media accounts. She was trying out our new Instagram iPhone app and decided to take pictures of her most recent culinary masterpiece. I found out she got the recipe from one of the best raw recipe websites out there: Rawmazing (seriously, check it out!). I wasn’t able to taste this mouth-watering dessert (it has chocolate), but Mother swears by it and I believe her!
Note: Chocolate is toxic to cats and dogs, so this recipe is for human consumption ONLY. Continue reading

I’m on national TV!!! CAPS’ PSA “This is the Face of a Puppy Mill Dog,” starring the pawmazing Kiley Wirtz-Jennings and moi, will air on HGTV, DIY Network, Food Network, Cooking Channel, Travel Channel, and Great American Country for one year. To celebrate, I got two cookies from Pawsmopolitan and enjoyed every single bite and lick (even better, I didn’t have to share with the bratty brothers). After indulging my sweet tooth, I feel like the celebration should continue throughout the week and I should indulge other teeth as well. Mother found this yummy recipe in a Whole Foods magazine. It’s the perfect balance of nutritious, hearty and zesty. I’m officially drooling! Continue reading

Mother had some mushy bananas, so we decided to try this vegan banana bread
recipe. Instead of walnuts, we are using chocolate chips (that means I
can’t eat any because chocolate is toxic to dogs). In place of vegan
margarine, we are using coconut oil. I can’t wait to see how this turns
out! We are also going to try using half vegan white sugar and half brown
sugar. Continue reading

There is such a thing as too much sun! I love sunbathing, but this week
the heat is too intense. I just want to go inside and stay next to the
a/c unit- forget about going outside or going for a ride, a girl like
me needs to keep herself hydrated and well fed! Phew! I haven’t posted
recipes in a while, but since it’s not the ideal time for baking (and
sweating), I decided we should go for something minty cool, sweet, and
light, no ovens or stoves needed! Of course, chocolate IS toxic to dogs
and cats, so please make this delicious treat only for human
companions. Enjoy! Continue reading

I recently read a funny article about celebrities and what their social media accounts say about them. This particular story focused on Oprah Winfrey’s Pinterest and made fun of her rich lifestyle. I love Oprah, but I couldn’t help but giggle at the pictures and the humorous descriptions provided by blogger Tracy Clayton. In the end, the article implied that even though Oprah might be a great woman, not a lot of people can identify with her posts: Hawaiian property, expensive sneakers, and overpriced jewelry- yeah, Pinterest is full of dreams!
