New Favorite Rita

Okay, this is now my favorite margarita. It is quite good and naturally sweet so hopefully not so fattening as a normal margarita using mix.

1 1/2 ounces tequila
1 ounce fresh squeezed lime juice
3/4 ounce water
3/4 ounce organic agave nectar (found this on the syrup aisle at Kroger)

Mix in a shaker, shake and pour when ready to drink! Yummy!!!

One For The Pups!

I finally had a moment to make the Greyhounds a new treat - Cheddar Bacon Mini-Muffins. This very simple recipe was included in our recent newsletter for Second Chance Greyhounds so I decided I would make them for my hounds last night.

I think the consensus amongst the group is "yum, yum"! They all decided I can make these again for them anytime!

Cheddar Bacon Mini-Muffins

1 cup all-purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
4 strips bacon, crumbled
½ cup cheddar cheese
½ cup milk
1 egg, beaten
2 tbsp bacon drippings

Combine all dry ingredients in a medium mixing bowl. In a smaller bowl, beat the egg and stir in the milk and bacon drippings. Pour egg mixture into the dry ingredients and stir just until combined. Spoon into mini-muffin tin and bake at 375° oven for about 10 minutes. Cool completely before serving. Makes 24 mini-muffins. Pin It
