Check out one of Dr. Ernie Ward's favorite Valentine's Day treats, made just for dogs.

I love celebrating holidays with my pets. When Valentine’s Day rolls around, I like to spoil my lovely wife with dark chocolate and my dogs these super-easy and wholesome treats. I recommend dogs under 20-pounds be given half a tart and bigger dogs a whole serving. If you want to get adventurous (and perhaps even healthier) add a few sprinkles of chia seeds to your filling. If you want to reduce the caloric content further, try substituting the egg with one-teaspoon chia mixed with three-teaspoons warm water. This is a common egg substitute that I use in my own personal cooking.

When you’re preparing your honey’s special Valentine’s Day treat, don’t forget your dogs. And don’t share your dark chocolates.

1-cup garbanzo flour
½-cup brown rice flour
1 egg
1/8-cup canola oil
1/8-cup applesauce
¼-cup water

¼-cup peanut or almond butter
1-tsp vanilla
1 egg
24 whole strawberries (fresh or frozen)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Mix the dry ingredients together and stir until blended. Roll out on a slightly floured surface to ¼ inch thickness. Cut into 24 circles and press into a lightly greased mini muffin pan. (Shortcut: Divide into 24 balls and press into the pan.) Blend the peanut butter, vanilla and egg together and distribute even amounts into each of the crusts. Place a strawberry on top of the filling.

Bake for 15-20 minutes or until the edges of the tarts are golden brown. Store in the refrigerator and share with your furry Valentine’s buddies.

23 Dog Names Based On Baked Goods For The Sweetest Pups

I'm not the only one whose favorite meal of the day is dessert. If it were up to me, I'd skip dinner all together and go straight to the rainbow cookies. If you're in the same boat, and with a brand new puppy to boot, why not name the newest addition to your family after your go-to dessert? There's no reason why you shouldn't name your dog after your favorite baked treat. Not only is it adorable, but it will make your pet even sweeter than they already are.

Plus it's an opportunity to get creative. You can name your pup something standard like Cookie or Cupcake, or more exotic like Eclair or Macaron. And if you want to get ironic, you can even call them gluten.

The point is, if you are looking for a cute name for your sweet furry friend, you might as well name him or her something that is actually sweet — you know, to match their irresistible personality.

There are even some names that just seem totally spot on, like Waffle for a Pomeranian. Sweet and fluffy, they're both basically the same thing. And if do decide to go down this route, I hope you live close to a bakery because naming your dog after a dessert may trigger some cravings.


If you have a family or live with multiple people, a Boxer is a great dog to have around. You're similar in that you're both incredibly patient and loyal and you'll appreciate that about each other. What's more, Boxers are very protective of the things their owners love, so you can count on your Boxer to be your right hand man and be kind and loyal to all the people you love, too. Plus, your Boxer will love hanging having other people around which means your lifestyles are well suited for each other.

Homemade Pop Tarts

Preheat oven to 400ºF. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.

In a small bowl, mix ½ cup jam with cornstarch. Crack the egg into a second small bowl and whisk.

Flour a large work surface and lay both pie crusts out on it. Roll the circles to 11 inches across. Use a knife or pizza cutter to cut the edges off, about 1 inch off all sides, to create two 9-inch squares. Then cut each square into three 3-inch stripes, or 6 total.

Spoon 1-2 tablespoons of jam on one end of each strip. Brush a rectangle of egg around the jam, to glue the sides together. Fold the dry end over the end with jam.

Use a fork to crimp the edges together on all sides. Repeat with remaining pie crust strips.

Move the pop tarts to the prepared baking sheet. Bake for 15–18 minutes, until golden. Cool.

After the pop tarts have cooled for several minutes, whisk powdered sugar, 1 tablespoon jam, and 1-2 tablespoons cream together to create an icing glaze. Spoon over the top of each pop tart and immediately sprinkle with sugar sprinkles. Let the icing dry, either on the baking sheets of on a dry rack.
