Howdy! Thank you for stopping by! Let me start by introducing myself. My name is Heather Marie and I am the writer, creator, tester, opinion producing Top Dog behind Biscuits & Bellyrubs. I am a ridiculously proud Wife, Mama of eight furry children, Bonus Mom to four grown human children, a Daughter, Sister and BFF to a plethora of furry, fuzzy, feathery and scaly creatures. My husband, Craig, (aka The Mr.) our eight kids and I, live on the edge of the Texas Hill Country, outside of Austin.

Biscuits & Bellyrubs! What’s the meaning of that name? Ah, I am so glad you asked!

Two of my biggest passions in life (other than my ah-may-zing husband) are animals of every species and edible material (FOOD)! SO… biscuits, treats for creatures and humans; and bellyrubs, satisfaction (after a tummy full of treats) for creatures and humans. It just made sense to me; and I like the words. Yeah, that’s my best explanation…

Let’s face it, I love to talk and have a lot to say! I am excited to offer tips, tricks and trivia on all sorts of random subjects.

I am a passionate vegan & animal advocate. We live a compassionate, cruelty-free lifestyle and encourage others to do the same.

“Caring for animals isn’t what I DO, It’s who I AM” 

So, thanks for reading!! Welcome & Enjoy!!

What’s New

Recipe: Peanut Noodles With Vegetables - I want to share one of our very favorite meals. It is quick and easy to make, and only takes a few staple ingredients you likely have in your pantry/fridge/freezer. Peanut Noodles With Vegetables. 5 out of 5 bellyrubs This is really a go-to for us, especially on nights that I know The Mr. will […]
Update: Deo For My B-O - Although we had, to the best of our knowledge at the time, been living cruelty-free in mostly all facets of our life, it wasn’t until we became more educated on what that actually meant; it was then we decided to completely, 100% dedicate ourselves to a full-on vegan lifestyle. With that, we learned that being […]
True Love Sweet Treats n’ Tats - For the Mr. and I, we are the ultra sappy couple that believes everyday is Valentine’s Day, and therefore do not really partake in the actual holiday, Hallmark style. HOWEVER, this year, we did get matching ♥Love♥ tattoos to commemorate and celebrate our Love (cue the (non-dairy) cheesy Michael Bolton music). I could certainly dedicate […]
Mac & Cheeze, Please! - I have been in the midst of writing a post on a completely different subject, but placed that particular one on hold to give an impression on a pretty important topic. This cannot wait; it must be done immediately! What possibly could be so important, you ask? The subject: Macaroni and Cheese, or rather, Mac […]
Out With The Old; In With The New & Improved - 2018. Hello, you sweet thing you. I’ve been waiting for you… You (my dear followers) likely don’t know me well enough (yet) to know that the number 18 is my number. My favorite, go-to, always-will-choose-no-matter-what number. I actually like all numbers that contain an ‘8’, but 18 is the best. I have been anxiously awaiting […]
Deo For My B-O - Let’s talk about pits. No, not canines this time, but rather ARM PITS! That silly lil crevice that we must keep groomed and tidy and always smelling fresh; because no one wants the aroma of Taco Bell in the morning wafting through the air as you stroll by!! Eek gads NO!! I am very self […]
Summer Staycation - I have been MIA for the last little bit. Well, actually, not really missing in the literal sense, but rather my desk chair has been missing me and me missing it. The Mr. took some time off work and we decided to partake in a very much needed Staycation. It was glorious! It was so […]
