From the Chef: My husband and I have a "labradoodle," also known as a doodle, and her name is Paisley. My in-laws have her sister, whose name is Sophie, but we all call her Snickerdoodle. My sister-in-law and husband adopted her brother, Hunter, who we call a string bean. This sounds silly, and it is, but whenever I hear the word "snickerdoodle," I think of our three sweet, little furry pups and can't help but smile. You may feel the same way once you try these little balls of joy. Plus, they are healthy and full of whole, nutritious ingredients.
