How To Tuesday: Doggy Delight

By |June 12th, 2012|How To Tuesday|

girl and dogI have never been shy in pronouncing my love for my main man, Smitty.  To say the “cat is out of the bag” would seem a little ridiculous.  So, I’m not saying that (even though I just did).  What I am saying is that my sidekick of nearly six years has been more loyal than some friends and certainly more loyal than any boyfriend I’ve ever had.  To say we are inseparable would be a bit of an understatement.  Although I’ve been away from him for over a week and feel as if my heart may be missing.  For that, I spoil him in anyway I can; whether it be a belly rub or some delicious home baked treats.

girl and her dogI’ve mentioned making pupcakes for my beloved pooch once before, but this time we’ve got a full blown tutorial.  Sure, sure, you could shell out an astronomical $2.50 a pop at Sprinkles, but as delicious as their K9 treats may be… they’re missing one very important ingredient:  your love.  Sweet, I know.  Don’t get used to it.

Anyway, these are very easy to make and are safe for your pooch to eat.  Just don’t overindulge the little guy/girl… we all know what a cupcake hangover feels like.   Not good.

Bow wow wow.

So, it’s up to you again.  What shall we “How To” next week?



The List Volume XXXIX

By |February 25th, 2011|The List|

So, I thought I’d switch things up a little this week.  One of my favorite things to do is check Google Analytics to see what exactly people are Googling to land on WhyDid.  I’ve compiled a list of this past week’s most interesting and/or popular searches (I promise you I did NOT make these up) and will do my best to answer all queries.

  1. Justin Bieber’s haircut. Here. Don’t ask again.
  2. Do people eat Bump Its.  Sweet heavens, I hope not.
  3. What to wear to a coffee date. I’m fairly certain we’ve covered this.  You don’t go on a coffee date. Period.
  4. Fishtail braid. Here is WhyDid’s “How To” video for the good ol’ fishtail braid:               
  5. How to pee in a one piece romper.  Well, when you take on the task of wearing a romper, you’re taking on a lot of responsibility.  This includes having to basically strip down nude when going to the ladies’ room.  Sorry, kiddos, no shortcut for this one.
  6. Kanye West wearing leggings. I didn’t know about such an incident until I saw this.  I presume this is in reference to the ridiculously tight red metallic skinnys he wore during the NBA All Star Game performance.
  7. What is why did you wear that? Um, well, you’re here now.  In case you haven’t figured it out, WhyDid is a lifestyle blog dishing out real life advice on fashion, love, food, and fun. Think of WhyDid as the big sister you never had.
  8. Why can’t Jennifer Anniston make a good movie? I laughed out loud at this one.  Great question.  If anyone has the answer, please let me know.  As a matter of fact, you should probably let her know.
  9. Dog cupcakes. Here’s a delightful recipe for dog cupcakes (aka pupcakes). I smell a “How To” video coming…
  10. Did Rihanna have on panties at the Grammy’s? If you look really close. Like really creepy stalker close in this photo you can see the nipple covers as well as the edge of a nude thong.  So while she may not have the best fashion sense, she does have enough good sense to cover her hoo ha.

Keep Googling, guys.



Why Did You Eat That: Where My Dogs At?

By |February 28th, 2010|Recipes, Why Don't You Watch?|


News flash: I’m obsessed with my dog. He has a CLOSET for crying out loud. Needless to say, he’s a pampered little K-9. (My vet actually told me he’s spoiled and has an attitude problem- which only made me love him more).  So, of course, he gets one heck of a bday party every year. Lucky for him, it’s cupcake week. Why should he (or your pooch) be excluded? Below is a pretty simple recipe for doggy cupcakes- dare I say, “pupcakes”?


  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 cup soft butter
  • 1/2 cup corn oil
  • 1 jar strained beef baby food
  • 4 eggs
  • Bacon Bits


  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  2. Cream butter until smooth.
  3. Add corn oil, baby food, and eggs and mix until smooth.
  4. Mix dry ingredients.
  5. Combine wet and dry ingredients until batter is smooth.
  6. Fold Bacon Bits into batter.
  7. Spoon batter into cupcake tins.
  8. Bake for 30 minutes and cool on wire rack.
  9. Frost with low fat cream cheese (or peanut butter) and sprinkle with Bacon Bits.  (You can also use ketchup to write a little message or just add extra flair).

Recipe makes around 12 standard size pupcakes.
