I don’t know about you, but I’ve been in full holiday baking mode for a few weeks now… and it’s all for dogs. When we’re in the midst of our festive baking sprees, it’s easy to forget making a little something extra just for our dogs. That’s why I kept the Spiced Apple and Carrot Dog Treat Recipe easy. There are just a few ingredients – five in total. Plus, you may already have most of them already, so no more trips to the grocery store.
