Here's one from Nessie Vote for this post Reply to this Message

I've taken the liberty of copying Nessie's treat recipe to start us off:

Here's one for you sweet tooths!
4 oz lowfat cream cheese
1/2 c applesauce, no sugar
1/2 c vegetable oil
2 tsp vanilla
2 c whole wheat flour
Mix all ingredients and kneed on a floured surface to 1/2in thick. Cut with cookie cutter of choice. Place on non-stick cookie sheet.
Bake 20 min. Turn off oven and let cookies sit in oven 1 to 2 hrs to harden.
Store in air tight container in fridge. Freezes great.

These smell really good when baking! And don't taste that bad either!

Here's SISTERS' MEAT LOAF (from Eve) Vote for this post Reply to this Message

Sister's MeatLoaf.
I buy beef on sale, like a roast, sirloin tip, or something like that.
I try not to use ground beef because of the fat and also not knowing just what is in it.

Basic.
I have a food processor and after trimming some of the fat off I grind a pound or more of meat.
I also grind in about 8 ounces of frozen green beans.
For each pound of beef I put in a cup of (OLD FASHION OATS, dry ) I don't use the one minute ones because they make the meat loaf mushy.
I add two eggs.

Now sometimes I remove the seeds from an apple and add this chopped up.
I also add brown or wild rice WELL cook at different times.
You can also use chicken, turkey or lamb.
I change this by adding different veggies, spinach, fresh or frozen carrots. (except) the one for Faith.
She has IBS so she gets hers kind of bland.

I have had three vets. look at this and all have said.
We see so many Westies with skin problems or just not acting right.
You have the best looking Westies when it comes to their skin we have seen.
Keep feeding as you have been.


I forgot to tell you "The rest of the MeaLoaf."
Heat Oven 350.
Cover cookie sheet with foil that has been sprayed with non stick cooking spray.
Have a large bowl ready, as you grind everything put them in the bowl.
After all have beem added start playing, mix everything up really well, I use my paws.
Then turn out on to a foil covered pan.
Pat down till it's about two inches, smothing the edges in a square or what ever shape that best fits the cookie sheet.
Bake at 350 for an hour.
Cool and slice, My sisters and I get about half an inch thick slice twice a day with some other treats or what ever I cook up.
Sometimes we get a Chicken stew topping.

I am going to make it for her tomorrow.
I hope you all get the book...I downloaded it and put it in a notebook.

So good for our dear pups.

Lets get cooking............. Vote for this post Reply to this Message

My friend has been feeding this to all of her dogs for 2 years and only adds the Missing Link supplement. She swears by this, this makes a big batch

So this is from the "other cook"



DOG AMBROSIA

2-1/2 lbs. lean ground beef (I prefer ground chuck but can only afford if it's on sale)

This I would change and add beef sirloin tip or chuck roast and cut this up in little chunks or bigger so you can shred the chunks up and add them back into the mix..

3 cups brown rice

You can also add barley if you let it cook like you would the rice..(barley is good for them)

6 cups water

Add a can of no salt broth, and make it 5 cups of water.

1/2 bag frozen peas & carrots

1/2 bag frozen french cut green beans

1 cup Quaker old fashioned oats

2 lg jars Gerber beef & vegetable baby food



In a large pot bring water and brown rice or barley to rolling boil. Add vegetables and also the cut up roast if your using this kind of beef..

Cover, turn heat to low and simmer until all liquid is absorbed.

If you don't use the roast beef you now can''''''

Brown ground beef and drain well.



In a very large bowl, combine hot rice mixture, drained ground beef, uncooked oats and baby food. Serve warm. The proportions can be adjusted easily, or this stuff freezes very well. But with my crew, I make a BIG batch ...

(From a friend.)

Wheatfree Salmon Treats.
.. 1 8 oz. can salmon with juice
.. 1/2 cup chopped parsley
.. 3 eggs, shells included
(I don't put the egg shells in)
.. 1/2 cup sesame seeds ground up in coffee grinder
.. 1/2 cup flax seeds ground up in coffee grinder
(I Use 1/4 cup, some dogs get runny stools)
.. 2-3 cups potato flour
Put these ingredients into a food processor, mix VERY WELL. Pour potato
flour through the opening while the motor is running. I can't tell you
exactly how much, but I would guess about 2-3 cups. When the dough forms,
like a pie curst, and rolls into a ball it is ready to take out.


Dump this mess(mess ?) onto potato floured counter or board. Knead more flour into
this and when it is a rolled out cookie consistency, it is ready to roll out
into about 14 inch thick. I use a pizza cutter to roll our long strips and
then cut crosswise to make small squares . If you want FANCY you may use a
cookie cutter. Bake on cookie sheets, sprayed Pam or line the sheet with
parchment paper. I put in as many as will fit. Usually two whole cookie
sheets suffices. I bake this in a 375 oven for 20 min. Turn and rotate the
cookie sheets and bake about 10 more minutes. You can make them as soft or
as hard as you want.

Kong Ambrosia Recipe Vote for this post Reply to this Message

1 kong
1/2 cup fat free sugar free yogurt
1/2 banana, sliced
1 tablespoon honey
1 tablespoon peanut butter

Mix no-fat sugar free plain yogurt with a tablespoon of honey.
Add a heaping spoon full of peanut butter and sliced bananas.
Wrap aluminum foil around the small end of the Classic KONG Toy and scoop the mixture into the KONG; freeze.
Then hand them out when your dog is in need of an exciting afternoon treat. They have to lick the KONG to warm up the frozen treats and get it out. This keeps them busy for at least 45 minutes and gives me free time knowing they won't be into other mischief. The yogurt is also great for their digestive system!
