Frozen Pumpkin Treats
From Ester

- Pumpkin Puree
- Water

I like to use silicone baking moulds for my frozen goodies, but an ice cube tray will do the trick. Simply mix the pumpkin puree with some water. I did about half and half – but you could use more or less, even pure pumpkin not the kind for making pie

Potato Based Diet
From Ester

•        Dr. Martin Goldstein recommends giving dogs a potato-based diet for an upset stomach and diarrhea. This consists of one-half white potatoes, one-half sweet potatoes, a slice of turnip and a slice of leek. Boil all, then mix with boiled chicken or lamb for flavor. "I've seen the potato diet stop chronic diarrhea almost overnight," says Dr. Goldstein in his book, 'The Nature of Animal Healing'.

•        1+1/2 cups white rice flour.
•        1+1/4 cups grated cheddar cheese.
•        100 grams (3 1/2 ounces) margarine (or butter).
•        Milk – you may need a little to help form the dough.

Healthy Frozen Ice Cream
From Ester


•        1 banana.
•        1 cup peanut butter.
•        2 cups natural yogourt.
•        2 tablespoons honey.

How to make
1.        Mash the banana and stir into the yogourt
2.        Warm the peanut butter either on your stove or in the microwave until it is easy to stir.
3.        Add the banana/yogurt mixture and the honey.
4.        Mix everything until well combined.
5.        Pour into non-stick trays or containers and freeze. We like to use ice cube trays, or freeze in small dog sized containers!
6.        Freeze overnight or until frozen

This recipe make a lovely creamy ice-cream. It is nicer if you take it out of the freezer to let it soften before giving it to your dog. It depends how big your frozen portions are, but this could take somewhere between ten minutes and half an hour

Fried Bannock
Fried Bannock A Metis recipe


- 3 cups (750 ml) sifted flour

- 1 tsp (5 ml) salt

- 1-2 tbsp (15-30 ml) baking powder

- water

- Vegetable oil or lard

Mix half of the flour with the remaining dry ingredients. Add water until the mixture becomes thick, like paper mache paste. Add more flour until the dough feels like a soft earlobe. Heat oil over medium - high heat until very hot but not smoking. Break off small pieces of the dough, and flatten each to the size of your palm. Place the pieces in the hot oil. Turn over after 3-4 minutes, or when golden brown. Place the bannock on a paper towel to soak up the excess grease.

Serve plain or with maple syrup or blueberry jam.

Not for the pups.

Chicken and Vegetables
From Esther

Chicken and Vegetables

Excellent for thin dogs or all dogs. Boil boneless chicken breasts/thighs, and rinse until all grease is gone with cold water. Extremely important causes diarrhea the fat. Use either fresh vegetables, or frozen no need to cook. Your dog is going to gobble this one up. My female could never have enough. She'd eat anything including my leftover hotsauce chicken too funny

Thanks to frozen puff pastry, you can put a stunning dessert on the table in no time. A sweet citrus glaze offsets the rhubarb's tartness, as does a scoop of ice cream.
1 cup fresh orange juice
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
1/2 cup sugar
3/4 pound rhubarb stalks, thinly sliced diagonally (1/8 inch)
1 sheet frozen puff pastry (from a 17 1/4-ounces package), thawed
1/2 teaspoon grated orange zest
Accompaniment: vanilla ice cream
Preheat oven to 400°F with rack in middle.

Stir together orange juice, lime juice, and sugar in a bowl. Add rhubarb and let stand, stirring occasionally, 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, cut pastry in half lengthwise, then roll out each piece into an 11-by 7-inch rectangle on a lightly floured surface with a floured rolling pin. Arrange pastry rectangles side by side on an ungreased large baking sheet.

Make a 1/2-inch border around each pastry rectangle by lightly scoring a line parallel to each edge (do not cut all the way through). Prick pastry inside border all over with a fork.

Strain rhubarb mixture through a sieve set over a bowl, reserving liquid. Top 1 pastry rectangle (within border) with half of rhubarb, overlapping slices slightly. Repeat with remaining pastry and rhubarb.

Bake until pastry is puffed and golden (underside of pastry should also be golden), about 30 minutes.

Meanwhile, boil reserved rhubarb liquid in a small saucepan, skimming foam if necessary, until reduced to about 1/4 cup, 15 to 18 minutes.

Transfer tarts to a rack. Brush rhubarb and pastry with glaze and sprinkle with zest.

Chicken and Dumplings

Sent in by Karen, looks good!


Chicken and Dumplings
You'll Need
For the chicken:

2 Tbsp butter
1 Tbsp olive oil
2 lbs boneless, skinless chicken breasts or thighs, cut into 2” pieces
Salt and pepper
1 onion, diced
3 celery stalks, trimmed and diced
3 carrots, peeled and sliced
3 sprigs fresh thyme, or ½ tsp dried thyme
¼ cup all-purpose flour
2 ½ cups chicken stock
1 cup frozen peas
Juice of 1 lemon
For the dumplings:

¾ cup all-purpose flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp dried dill
½ tsp salt
1 Tbsp melted butter
½ cup milk
Prep and Cook
Heat 1 Tbsp of the butter and the oil in a large heavy-bottomed pot set over medium heat. Pat the pieces of chicken dry with a paper towel and season well with salt and pepper. Working in batches, brown the chicken, transferring the cooked pieces to a plate.
Once all of the chicken is browned, add the remaining tablespoon of butter to the pot. Add the onion, celery, carrots and thyme and stir well. Cover and cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables begin to soften.
Add the flour and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Add the stock and bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Nestle the chicken back in the pot, reduce the heat to medium-low, cover the pot and cook for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Just before the chicken is done cooking, make the dumplings. Whisk together the flour, baking powder, dill weed and salt in a mixing bowl. Add the melted butter and milk to the dry ingredients and gently mix with a wooden spoon or spatula just until the mixture comes together. Do not overmix or your dumplings will be dense.
Stir the peas and lemon juice into the pot. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Drop small balls of dumpling batter (8–10 total) into the simmering liquid, keeping at least 1” between them. Cover the pot and simmer until the chicken is tender and the dumplings are puffed and firm, about 15-20 minutes.

In a large pot, cover ham bone with water (about 12 cups).

Bring to a boil and simmer 2 hours.

Peanut Butter Dog Biscuits
Peanut Butter Dog Biscuits

Peanut Butter Honey Bar Biscuits

taken from

Got a dog with a sweet tooth? All dogs love this peanut butter dog biscuits recipe for a yummy sweet cereal bar.

Deliciously chewy, this peanut and honey treat is hard to resist for four legged friends and two legged ones!

My biscuit recipe is based on a hikers cereal bar, and makes a great energy-packed snack for your pet when out on a long hike, or working extra hard. Or use it to give them a boost when they are feeling tired.

Peanut butter is great for your pet. It contains vitamins H and E which will make your dog's fur shine, and strengthen their immune system.


2 tablespoons of Honey

1/2 cup Peanut Butter (smooth or crunchy)

1+1/4 cup breakfast Cereal Flakes/Oats (I used a mix of oats, cornflakes and bran flakes).

1 teaspoon Butter

How to make the Biscuits

Turn oven on at 180/325 degrees.

1. Mix together honey, peanut butter and butter.

2. Gently stir in the cereal.

3. Mix all ingredients together until you have a sticky ball in the bowl.

4. Spread the biscuit mixture onto a non-stick baking tray - spreading it out to about 1/2 inch thickness.

5. Bake in the oven for ten minutes.

6. When you take it out it will be soft. When cool, cut into small squares or bars to suit the size of your dog.

Makes 8-10 small biscuits/bars. Recipe can easily be doubled for more.

Any breakfast cereals can be used but watch out for using really sugary ones - this recipe is sweet enough. If your dog has wheat allergies, then use non-wheat cereal such as oats and cornflakes.

Seal the biscuits in plastic wrap for individual packing, or keep in a airtight tin.

Peanut Butter Dog Treat Recipe
Homemade Peanut Butter Dog Treat Recipe

Peanut Butter and Banana Bones

Taken from

This free peanut butter dog treat recipe is perfect for puppies.

Any dog with a taste for banana or Peanut Butter is going to love this dog treat. Which pet can resist such a yummy tasting treat?

This recipe makes a soft biscuit treat. The dough is quite soft, but holds a shape made by a cookie cutter well.

If you make the dog treat recipe with rice flour instead of wheat germ, then it makes a great wheat-free treat. So even dogs with allergies can enjoy it!


1 Banana - mashed

1/2 cup Peanut Butter

1/4 cup Wheat-germ or rice flour

1/4 cup chopped peanuts

1/4 cup warm water

Directions for making these treats:

Turn oven on at 180/325 degrees.

1. Mix together the banana, peanut butter, chopped peanuts and flour.

2. Add as much of the water as you need to make a firm dough.

3. Roll out on a floured board about 1cm thick.

4. Use cookie cutters to make biscuit shapes.

5. Place on non-stick tray and bake in the oven for 10 to 15 minutes. Take them out and let them cool.

Don't tell them, but this a great way to use up a banana that is going brown - they mash much easier when they are soft. I usually use smooth peanut butter for this recipe because the peanuts add the crunch. But crunchy peanut butter works just as well!

Sample Recipe
I ate one of these myself every day after work 

Example recipe from



Alexander's Peanut Butter Dog Biscuit Treats
Recipe by Sherilyn Schamber

1 1/2 cups water
1/2 cups safflower oil 
2 medium eggs
3 tablespoons peanut butter (sugar free, creamy)
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1 1/4 cups unbleached white flour
1/2 cups cornmeal
1/2 cups rolled oats
Additional flour for rolling
Preheat oven to 400 F.
Mix water, oil, eggs, peanut butter, and vanilla with a wire whisk. Add flours, cornmeal, and oats. Combine with a mixer.
Take one-third of the dough and place on a floured surface. Flour top of dough. Gently knead, adding more flour as necessary to form a pliable dough (This will require
a substantial amount of flour). Roll out to 1/2 - 3/4 inch thickness and cut shapes using cookie cutters. Repeat until all dough is used.
Place on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake 400 F, 20-25 minutes, depending on thickness of biscuits . Leave in oven 20 minutes after turning oven off to crisp. Store in an airtight container.
Storing Dog Treats
In general you should store dog treats the same way you would homemade people cookies.  That being said, there are two main variables that determine storage time

the amount and type of fat in the recipe and
your local weather conditions. 
If your recipe uses fats such as butter, or meat bits or juices then it will be more prone to rancidity than a recipe that uses some vegetable oil or shortening.  Your treats may mold or spoil much faster in humid or very hot climates. 

Refrigeration and Freezing
Refrigeration will prolong the life of more fragile dog treats.
Make sure to store in a tightly sealed container or zip lock bag.
