Freshpet Ready to Bake Cookies Review and Giveaway!

As many of you know, I'm smack dab in the middle of a Clean Food Challenge where I'm trying not to eat any food that contains artificial ingredients. And, why shouldn't Nettie and Lexi also participate?! So, when Freshpet approached me to write a review of their Ready to Bake dog treats, I knew the timing could not be more perfect. 

For those of you unfamiliar with Freshpet, they are a company striving to create a healthy, and fresh, alternative to traditional pet food. None of their food is processed, or contains any preservatives or artificial ingredients. It's simply well balanced, natural, and ready-to-serve food. 

Lately, the dogs have really been kind of ignored in the treats department. Henry thinks its awesome to feed them through the living room gate, so they have pretty much just been getting little puffs here and there. And a lot of the time, Hen will tease the poor things and ends up eating the "treat" himself.



So, I was very excited to try out these Freshpet Ready to Bake cookies. And, honestly I am super impressed with the quality. I don't think I will ever go back to our old treats. The Freshpet Ready to Bake cookies were shipped to me in an awesome (and super handy) cooler since all of their food needs to stay refrigerated (remember no preservatives!). 

Inside the cooler were two boxes of the Ready to Bake cookies. I chose to make the Peanut Butter Oatmeal treats first. I chose these (over Oatmeal and Cranberry - I cannot wait to try these either) because I have made peanut butter oatmeal treats myself from scratch for the dogs before, and I wanted to see how they compare. 

 

There is no comparison. These Ready to Bake cookies were so easy to make. It required literally no work for me. All you have to do is open the package and bake. I love that for dog treats, since they often require ingredients that I don't regularly keep around. So, not only are they easy, all you have to buy is this one package. And speaking of ingredients, look at this list, so CLEAN!! I was also so happy to see they are made in America; we have all heard the horror stories about dog's being poisoned by food made abroad.


Not only were easy to make, but these cookies smelled amazing! Lexi was in love with the smell too; look who wandered into the kitchen just as they were coming out of the oven:



Seriously, I would have eaten them had the box said they were for dogs. Yum. And, while I didn't taste them, I'll take Nettie and Lexi's reactions as proof enough that they were delicious. Both dogs have been ridiculously happy to get a treat all week. And I've been getting the biggest puppy dog eyes from them asking for more!



Bottom line, these are great treats, and I can't say a single bad thing about them. The dogs were happy, and I was happy. Total win-win.

And, the best news is Freshpet is giving away 2 boxes of Ready to Bake cookies to 1 lucky Kavanaugh Report reader! Just follow the Rafflecopter directions and leave a comment below! One lucky winner will be announced March 13, 2012.

The Ultimate Montessori Toy List -- Birth to Five -- UPDATED 2020

When you are interested in Montessori, it can be difficult to know exactly what types of products you should get for your home. Or which types of "Montessori" materials are really worth the price. There are no rules about types of products can use the name Montessori which can add to the confusion. Not to mention, every toy manufacturer slaps the word "educational" on the package for good measure! 2020 UPDATE: This list is updated for another year! Enjoy a variety of Montessori friendly finds from both major retailers and smaller shops!  So, with this post, I'm going to try to help with this confusion! Here's a list of Montessori-friendly toys and materials for babies, toddlers and preschoolers.  First, let's clarify that there is no such thing as a "Montessori toy." Montessori never created toys, but only works for classroom settings. While there are many works that I recommend for home school use, you won't find these

Sensitive Periods from Birth to 6 - A Chart and Guide

Dr. Maria Montessori spent her life observing, studying, and writing about children. During her lifetime of work she discovered that young children move through a series of special times when they are particularly attracted to specific developmental needs and interests. She called these times, sensitive periods. During the sensitive period, children learn skills related to the sensitive period with ease. They don't tire of that work, but seek it, crave it and need it. When the sensitive period passes, this intense desire is gone, never to return.  That doesn't mean the skill is lost forever once the sensitive period is over. Instead, it just means that it will take a more conscious effort to learn. As Dr. Montessori explains,  This post contains affiliate links at no cost to you. "A child learns to adjust himself and make acquisitions in his sensitive periods. These are like a beam that lights interiorly a battery that furnishes energy. It is this sensibility which enables

Our Kids' Montessori Gift Lists 2020

With the holiday season upon us we've been making lists and gathering gifts for the Kavanaugh children. It's always a fun process of observing my children, seeing what they would really be interested in and making some decisions based on what I see. This year is different because I'm also making decisions knowing that we are looking at a very long and quiet winter ahead. So that's influencing the amount I will buy and the specific choices I will/have made.  Henry and Nora are also at the point, being into the second plane of development, where they heavily influence the items on the list and what is ultimately purchased. So, you'll see that while Montessori influences what I will purchase and what goes on their list, so does their own preferences and personality.  This post contains affiliate links at no cost to you.  Theodore Teddy is 14-months-old right now and as the fourth baby, we have so many toddler things. But, there are a few things I've still found tha
