Homemade Dog Biscuits

Mila is going to be 5 years old on August 31 (next Saturday) so today’s blog post is a recipe for homemade dog biscuits, I can’t take full credit for the recipe since I found it on Pinterest, seriously, is there anything you can’t find on there?!

Ingredients:

1 3/4 cups uncooked Oatmeal

1 large Banana

1/2 cup Peanut Butter (NO xylitol)

Blender

Cookie cutter

*Rolling pin

Instructions:

  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  • Blend your oats until they’re powder.
  • In a bowl mix together the banana and peanut butter.
  • Dust 1/2 cup of powdered oats on flat surface you’ll be working on.
  • Pour the rest of the oats into the bowl of peanut butter and banana, and mix until combined. It should not be too sticky if so, blend more oats.
  • Use cookie cutter and place on a non stick cookie sheet.
  • Bake treats for approximately 15 minutes, or until edges start to brown.
  • Let it cool before serving and store extra in a air tight container for 7 days.

*Avoid peanut butter that contains Xylitol as it is poisonous to dogs!!

Pumpkin Soup

With the fluctuating weather we’ve been having in New York and currently getting over a cold which I kindly passed down to my fiancé 🙂 (I’m sorry!) I decided to try out a Pumpkin Soup Recipe I found on the Yummly app           (Avaliable on iPhone,iPad and web)

Yummly app is my cooking bible! It has TONS of recipes from appetizers,breakfast,main course meals,desserts, drinks…you name it they have it!! Recipes also include image of the desired dish,preperation time, list of ingredients, calories and step by step instructions.

I read through the “instructions” a couple times just to make sure I knew what the heck I was doing and surprisingly it was a lot easier than I thought! As for taste, it was a very smooth purée consistency or as my fiancé said “it’s like eating baby food” with alittle spice which gave it a little “kick” (I don’t know of any cool culinary lingo so give me a break) overall I was pleased with the outcome considering it was my first attempt making it. I will say that it’s probably most enjoyable and appreciative during the winter season.
