Strawberry cupcakes are one of my husband's favorite flavors. This is an easy recipe using a boxed cake mix. Unlike the mix I used, you should avoid using mixes with pudding added in them when making cupcakes. Cupcaking requires firm cake so you shouldn't use any of the lighter kinds such as angel food or the pudding added mixes. Unfortunately, this was the only type I had on hand.
1 box strawberry supreme cake mix
1 cup buttermilk
1/3 cup vegetable oil
4 large eggs
Prepare muffin cups with paper liners. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine all the ingredients in a large bowl.
Spoon into a large ziplock bag, press out the excess air and seal.
Snip a 1/4" corner from the bag and fill the paper liners 2/3 full.
Remove the cupcakes from the pans, place on a wire rack, and allow to cool completely.
Make up your favorite frosting, I used cream cheese, (our favorite) and decorate.

2 1/2 cups wheat flour
1/2 cup powdered dry milk
3/4 cup water
1 egg beaten
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine flour and dry milk. Mix in egg. Add water (a little at time) so that mixture forms a ball.
Roll out dough 1/4" thick. Cut out shapes with a biscuit cutter.
Fill with meat ( leftovers work great) sprinkle with a few chopped tomatoes and little grated cheese. Make sure the vegetables you use are dog friendly. Keep in mind, dogs can't tolerate salt and shouldn't have sugar.
Fold the dough in half and seal by pinches the edges together.
Pop them in the oven and bake 17 to 20 minutes. Brush the top with a beaten egg to give them a glossy sheen.
