Cooking can be fun for you and your family, but is especially enjoyed by our pets. Here you’ll find some great recipes, which I will update periodically. Remember to always consult your vet before cooking for your pet, and never give your pooches chocolate, grapes, or onions.
I have found a great shortcut when you are cooking for your dog. Whenever we cook for our pets we do not want to change their diets too much as this can lead to upset stomachs.
Here are a few great tips I often use when I am cooking for my 3 boys:
– Take 6 cups of your own brand of Kibble that you currently feed your dog and place it in a blender or food processor. Grind it up until it becomes the texture of coarse flour, or a little smoother. Now you have what I call “Kibble Flour.” Remove the amount you need, then store the rest in a plastic container, label well and place in your freezer. (This will keep for up to 6 months). You will still need to use some real flour, but far less. If the recipe calls for 3 cups of flour then use 1 1/2 cups “Kibble Flour” and 1 1/2 cups real flour. I often will try to use more “Kibble Flour” than real flour but this depends on the recipe and the climate where you are cooking: a little experimentation is OK!
Another great shortcut is when a recipe calls for chicken or beef broth, then also calls for chopped chicken or chopped beef if I do not have any on hand I will use canned chicken soup or beef. Just be sure they have NO ONIONS in the mix.
