Introducing "Canine Cooking Corner," and it's a Blog Hop!
Since baking and whipping up treats in the kitchen (especially during the holiday season) is a favorite pastime for my daughter and I...and, of course, the Sibes...I thought I'd launch a new weekly blog hop called "Canine Cooking Corner" that will feature all kinds of snout-smackin' good recipes for our furpals. There will be recipes for healthy kibble add-ins, quick-n-easy nutritional dishes, homemade treats, and some healthy scratch recipes. I should add here that two years ago, when my boy Gibson was diagnosed with epilepsy and put on two kinds of medications, he gained 14 pounds as a side effect of the meds (voracious appetite). I became inventive with the add-ins (i.e. green beans, pumpkin, carrots, etc.) as a way of giving him healthy, fiber-rich foods that will fill him up, but not fatten him up. I'm able to keep him at a steady weight now - and decided to share the healthy add-ins with the rest of the furfamily. And it's all vet-approved!
If you'd like to join in--and we sure hope you will--and share some of your dog's favorite K9 recipes, please do so! From the raw diet to healthy additions and nutritious gravies to canine sweet treats and fave foods, we want to hear and pet-test them all! Photos, videos, and directions are all welcome!
To kick-off this week's hop, we will share a video recipe of one of the FiveSibes' all time fave dishes - and naturally, one of the ingredients is salmon! Now, this is not a scratch dish, but rather a fast-food healthy add-in that can be whipped up in just a few minutes. It also contains green beans, which is a healthy, lo-cal fiber addition to any recipe. So grab a hot mitt and a mixing bowl, and put those puppies to work! Bon Appétit!
