“You’re Drugging Your Dog?!” “I think bonding time is more important than his hip.” “He’s been neutered? Already?” “Look how dominant he is.” I even got lectured for even getting a dog.

I love quaint, old expressions and this year with all the our hot, hot days I kept thinking about “Dog days of summer.” Now, being a dog lover, I always thought that meant the hot August days where it was all a dog could do but find a bit of shade and pant and try to stay cool.
Finally the tomatoes are coming in more than one or two at a time in our little garden – and here’s a recipe to take advantage of the best tomatoes of the season, no matter where you get them from.
I’ve been going nuts over a Midwest Living magazine this summer and you’ll see more recipes inspired from them in the coming days and weeks. This recipe, Orange Apricot Snack Cake, was inspired by their Vanilla Orange Snack Cake and is so much more than it sounds!
