Peanut Butter Coconut Woofies

 Our boxer liked to tear things apart when we would leave the house. 
We were always against caging him up when we left, because we feel as if it is his house too. 
So in a attempt to stop all the shredding of things while we were gone,
we started giving him 2 treats when we left. 
Slowly but surely the madness stopped. 
I honestly don't know if it was because of the treats or him just getting older and wiser. 
I'm not willing to find out so I continue to give him treats.

Coconut Raspberry Jello Cake

We recently lost my Grandma in February.
Which officially made me grandparent-less. 
I'm still trying to come to terms with that.
It's been almost 4 months and I still can not wrap my head around her being gone. 
She's one of those women who I believe would live forever.
It's going to take a LONG time for that hole in my heart to heal, if it ever does.  
To be honest with ya, I'm fighting back the tears as I type this. 
Grandma made an amazing Mandarin Orange Cake.
As soon as I saw this recipe it reminded me of her and her cake. 
With her in mind I knew I had to make it.
