Doggy Meatza

Doggy MeatzaHi guys! Hope all of you and your pooches have been well. This is one of my fave recipes I’ve done for Fido & Wine. It’s in the Woofstock episode (the largest dog festival in North America). If you’ve never been and you live in Canada, here’s your chance to see what it’s all about (We have to “geoblock” the episodes online, it’a bummer for my international followers – I wish you could see the show!) This is truly a recipe that your ENTIRE family will love. This dish is very popular with meat lovers, those who can’t tolerate gluten, and people on the paleo diet, to name a few. Think of it as pizza, only instead of dough, the crust is made with meat. It’s a grain-free version that satisfies hearty appetites and offers a wide variety of toppings!

Surf ‘n Turf Fur You And Your Dog

Surf 'n Turf for dogs

Sorry it’s taken so long to post a new recipe…anybody else have this crazy never ending cold?! Oh…and there was that trip to Jamaica, feels like a lifetime ago now. But I’m back – and here’s one from my show, Fido & Wine – from one of our episodes we shot in February down in Southern California.  Unfortunately we can only air it online in Canada, despite the many requests we’ve had from the US, hopefully we can get a broadcaster down there to air it!  - click here to watch “Surfing Dogs”.  We met some amazing people from the Socal Surf Dogs and the world famous special Surf Dog, Ricochet.   This dog and her guardian, Judy, do the most amazing work. Ricochet is a world famous, award-winning surf dog with a purpose! She’s the only SURFice dog™ in the world who surfs with kids with special needs, people with disabilities, wounded warriors and veterans with PTSD as an assistive aid. There’s a reason this dog is so popular, especially on Facebook. Here’s a photo of me getting a kiss from the star, with our Story Producer Angela, and Judy in the foreground with Ricochet.

Wolfberry Burgers

From Fido & Wine

From Fido & Wine

Hello everyone! This is a super simple recipe I developed for Fido & Wine. We were exploring our dog’s ancestors, the intelligent and elusive wolf, and bison is definitely on their menu. Because bison’s so lean, it can be dry, so I thought, why not add some berries to it – after all, wolves eat berries in the bush. The combo was a winner! The apple butter jam is easy as well – and can be used to elevate other dishes, like grilled cheese. If you Watch A Wolf’s Dinner you can watch Laura make the “Wolfberry burgers”. You can also use ground turkey and make Turkey Berry Burgers to save money as bison is expensive.

Baby Food Dog Treats

Baby Food Dog TreatsSay what?  Sounds odd, but think it through…a lot of the food that’s pureed for human babies is great for the fur babies.  And we know that it has to meet human standards and the organic ones don’t seem to cost much more.  I learned this trick at the San Diego Zoo Safari Park when I was filming there earlier this month with the amazing Animal Training Supervisor, Janet Rose Hinostroza.  I’ve had a lot of great days over the years, but this one was at the top of the list.  We’re doing an episode of Fido & Wine on The Cat Ambassador program – dogs paired with cheetahs! This is my favourite pic from the day.
Cat Ambassador San Diego Zoome on setDo you like my cheetah pants??!! LOL. Cheetahs are solitary creatures by nature, and the dogs help them with their anxiety and this in turn helps these endangered beauties to breed. Janet showed us what they feed the cheetahs and the dogs.  The team of nutritionists at the zoo plan menus for each of the animals, and even devise individual diets for the dogs.  I was immediately thrilled to learn what treats they make for the cheetahs – “Bloodsicles” – basically they mix some blood from raw meat (that will later become the cat’s meal) with water, and then freeze it.cheetah My boys are big fans of blood, so although the dogs at the zoo don’t get the bloody good treats, they’re perfect for my guys!  However, the dogs do get really cool ice pops themselves – baby food mixed with water!!  Chicken  was the flavour that the dog we filmed with got – and I thought to myself – now that’s super easy and healthy!

Steel Cut Oatmeal Bones

Steel Cut Oatmeal Bones

Well it’s that time of year again…the pants are WAY too tight and we’re all trying out our “lifestyle changes” for the new year. Mine is pretty difficult, aside from more exercise, (all right, I admit it – I haven’t done any since the summer!),  I’m doing a 75% vegan/raw diet. Basically, two meals & snacks per day are raw & vegan, and often the third meal is vegan. My dehydrator has been on as much as the furnace lately! I’m really loving raw breads and crackers, but that’s a whole other blog.  Vegan meals are no problem – one really great vegan meal is steel cut oats. I can’t stomach regular oatmeal, the texture just grosses me out for some reason. But I love chewy steel cut oats; I just cook them in water, then when they’re finished, I add about a cup of berries and a handful of raw pumpkin or sunflower seeds and hemp hearts. It looks like this before I stir it:

Leftover Steel Cut Oatmeal

I had a cup and a half left over, so I thought I’d make The Boys some bones out of it. All of the ingredients are awesome for dogs, and they of course were spoiled at Xmas along with the rest of us, so these are some great vegan treats for them too!  I only added flour and water to make these bad boys. I love when leftovers from my meal can be repurposed for my number one fans – I highly recommend these!

Twist n’ Licks

TwistLicks

Hi guys!  I know it’s kind of annoying when bloggers say they’ve been too busy to post often, so I’ll skip that part and simply thank you for your ongoing support! For those of you who don’t know much about me, I also produce a show for a Canadian specialty channel, The Pet Network.  It’s called Fido & Wine, and in each half hour episode, we explore dog themed events, topics etc, and then our host Laura cooks up dog friendly meals and treats.  It’s obviously been a dream job for me, and I’m excited to be heading into a third season!  However, this means that when I’m not at the office or filming, I’m in the kitchen, knee deep in dog drool as I develop recipes for 13 more shows…so far I’ve got “A Wolf’s Dinner (bison berry burgers) for our Wolves episode, and a beautiful array of bakery style treats for our “Best in Show” episode.  These Twist n’ Licks are a by-product of my recipe development for the latter.  Inspired by the ever popular Oreo cookies, these are dog-friendly treats that look like a pro made them – but the truth is they are not hard to make!  I can’t wait for the episode to be ready **spoiler alert, LOL, we’re making cannoli, dipped pretzels and bone-shaped cream sandwiches.  Oh yeah, baby.

Halloween Tips & Treats

Olive treatCan you believe that Halloween is next week?  I hope that it doesn’t rain again this year.  In anticipation of one of our favourite days – Laura and I focused our ON THE GO Magazine column on Pet Safety Tips for Halloween, so I thought I’d share that, along with some classic recipes from my blog. PS you might recognize The Boys aka the Bee and The Mailman. BOO xo/J

Icy Pumpkin Bones

Icy Pumpkin Bones
It’s Pumpkin Patch time :) I use pumpkin puree all the time, whether it’s in treats or just straight up with The Boys’ meals. It can be pricey for these big lugs – so I will be roasting myself some big pumpkin and getting out the hog of a food processor in the next few weeks. Here’s a SUPER SIMPLE recipe for frozen treats. one minute or less!

Ingredients:
Pumpkin Puree
Water

I like to use silicone baking molds 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 would work I’m sure.

Superfood Scooby Snacks

Superfood Dog Treat

I’m trying to fall in love with Superfoods like Kale and Quinoa..it’s a battle. On the vegan/vegetarian blogs I read, everyone seems to have a love affair going on with them…is it just me or are they a little harder to love than broccoli and pasta? Anyway, there’s no doubt that they are powerhouses in the nutrition arena, so here are some high end treats I made for The Boys!

Honey Bear Paws (grain free)

Honey Bear Paws (before baking)

My friend & host of Fido & Wine, Laura Ducharme, is honey bee crazy these days…and for good reason.  Raw honey has some wonderful benefits for our dogs – check out a post by one of my favourite interviewees in my upcoming doc “Acting Out: Canine Nutrition & Behaviour” – Dr. Jean Dodds. Dodds also talks about local honey – which is what I used in this recipe. Apparently, eating local honey may help us all with seasonal allergies – any my littlest one gets the runny eyes so this is an extra super spesh treat for him. In theory, bees from your local area are likely to collect pollen from the local flowers in your area. That pollen will end up in small amounts in the honey produced. By ingesting that honey on a regular basis, , the person eating the honey will build up immunity to the pollens from the flowers in their local region.

Laura gave me this jar of local buckwheat honey, she raved about and hinted that she’d love to see a recipe on the blog with this buckwheat honey – so this one’s for you, honey buns :) I also put some cinnamon and ginger in there, these are some sweet smelling Honey Bear Paws. Of course my favourite flour to use these days is buckwheat flour, the best of the grain free options IMHO.

 
Honey Bear Paws ingredients
INGREDIENTS:
1 cup water
local honey (I used one cup for my dogs – read comments section for recipe adjustments if you think this may be too much for your dog)
6 cups buckwheat flour (or other flour mixture)
2 TBS ground ginger
2 TBS cinnamon
1/4 cup carob chips

This is pretty easy. Preheat your oven to 250 degrees.

Place the dry ingredients — buckwheat flour, ginger and cinnamon — into a mixing bowl first and mix together. Then add the wet ingredients, water and honey. I used the stand mixer but you could mix by hand. Mix it until it forms a dough ball. This is a “wetter” dough, so sprinkle some flour on it before taking it out of the bowl. It does roll out easily and beautifully…I like mine between 1/4″ and 1/2″ thick. I used a paw print cookie cutter and then stamped them with this “welcome to bear country stamp” I picked up at Michaels. Then I used carob chips for the paw pads. (a good replacement since you can’t feed dogs chocolate chips) Bake at 250 degrees for 45 minutes to an hour. You could probably bake them at 350 for 20-25 minutes, I just wanted to keep my carob chips pretty solid.

The buckwheat flour gives it that gorgeous dark brown colour you see in the final baked goods below.

White Mockolate Stuffed Raspberries

White Mockolate Stuffed Raspberries Hey all, hope you’re having a great summer! This decadent dish for our dogs is actually a fresh and healthy treat.  It’s berry season, and raspberries are one of the lowest sugar fruits, so I thought why not let The Boys share the bounty.  I’ve been seeing chocolate stuffed raspberries in magazines lately, (I’m sure you know that chocolate is toxic for dogs)  so I thought I’d do a twist on it that’s dog-friendly.  You could use carob chips instead of chocolate, but I’m big on plain yogurt which doesn’t have any sugar added to it and offers many health benefits for our four-leggers. There are only two ingredients:

Raspberries
Plain Yogurt
**You could also add a touch of honey to sweeten it up for your pooch.

Wash and dry your berries. Simply spoon some yogurt into a sandwich bag and snip off one of the bottom corners. This is your piping bag (of course you could use a pastry bag if you have one). Now, just inject some yogurt love right into the berries! You could freeze these first before feeding to Fido for some frosty goodness, but I wouldn’t keep them in the freezer for any extended period of time.

Poochy Pumpkin Granola

Poochy barsHope everyone is having a good summer so far…is it as hot where you are?  Looks like the heat wave around these parts is over – which means we can use our ovens again!  Here’s a super easy treat recipe.  I always have big cans of pumpkin puree on hand for The Boys, and I often add scoops of the leftover pumpkin to their meals.  It’s such a super healthy & tasty vegetable, plus it’s a real digestion booster.  I’ve also given an option here to use some scottish oats – I’ve been baking with these a lot lately as the oat is less processed and therefore has more to offer nutritionally.

“Red, White & Blues”: Frosty Fourth of July treats!

Red, White & Blue Dog treats fourth of julyThe long weekend to celebrate Canada Day has arrived, last year I did some maple leaf cookies to mark the occasion. It’s also coming up on Independence Day for our friends to the South, so here’s a recipe to help celebrate the Fourth of July!

INGREDIENTS:
1/2 cup to a cup of plain yogurt
1/2 cup to a cup strawberries (I used frozen)
1/2 cup to a cup blueberries (I used frozen)
THATS IT!

Thaw your berries if you’re using frozen ones.
berries
Puree the berries with a stick blender or blender, or even your fork and some effort will do it if they’re from frozen, because they’re so soft.
berries and yogurt
Layer them into your mold. I used a silicone bone mold, you could even use muffin tins. Fill each slot 1/3 full with strawberry puree. Freeze for an hour. Add yogurt to make it 2/3 full. Freeze for an hour. Scrape off any excess white yogurt from sides so you will be able to see all three layers. Fill to top with blueberries and freeze for at least five hours. You can reverse the strawberries and blueberries for some extra fun times, lol.

Cheers and let’s celebrate!

PB & J Bones – Grain Free

pb&j bones -grain freeIt’s getting hot in here! Kicked off the summer season by filming Woofstock, North America’s largest dog festival. I saw so many different dogs in one day; it was a series of constant “wows”. By the end of the day I was overwhelmed! From wiener dog racing to fashion shows to stupid pet tricks, it was a blast and I highly recommend it. About 300,000 people pass through each year. I’m sharing some photos below, along with this easy, go to recipe I developed for our latest episode about Lure Coursing, a popular sport for sighthounds. The most insane racers are the Whippets, you should see them chase after the “bunny” (a plastic bag!) I’m talking to you Andrea, time to get my fave whippet Teddy off to the races!

INGREDIENTS:

2/3 cup strawberries *thawed from frozen is best
½ cup natural peanut butter
1/3 cup canola oil
1/3 cup water
1 egg
TBS apple cider vinegar
2 ½ cups buckwheat flour

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Strawberries mydogsbreakfastAll of the wet ingredients go straight into your stand mixer bowl if you have one. If not, you can mix by hand.

First you need ½ cup peanut butter. Dogs love peanut butter. Try to use natural as there’s no sugar or other additives. Next I’m adding the jam part of these bones – 2/3 of a cup of strawberries. Thawing strawberries and mashing them with a fork is the easiest way to go – but of course you can use fresh strawberries, just chop them up first. Next add 1/3 cup of canola oil, ½ cup of water, one tablespoon of apple cider vinegar, and finally, one egg. Mix the wet ingredients together. Now for your only dry ingredient – buckwheat flour, 2 ½ cups. Now we let the mixer do all of the work or do it the old fashioned way! Mix until dough forms. Now simply flour your surface. The strawberries can make this more of a wet dough – so you may need to be very liberal with the flour so it’s not too sticky to work with. Roll out to your desired thickness. They should be somewhere between ¼ inch and ½ inch thick and cut into desired shapes. Place bones on your non stick baking tray and it goes into the oven at 350 degrees for 25 minutes.

Let cool before feeding to your dogs.

xo/J Cheers to Summer!

I just might have to get some shades for The Boys!

Doggy Things I’m Currently Lovin’

Black bulldogHello everyone!  I’m slow to post new recipes these days, it’s been busy and I’ve been felled by tendonitis in my forearm and a pinched nerve in my neck.  As Mick says, “what a drag it is getting old”"! Looking forward to physio and getting back to 100%.  Right now I’m severely limiting my computer time, which I’m sure is great not only physically, but mentally as well.  But I can still cook – and I’m working on a recipe this weekend for easy pumpkin granola bars.  In the meantime, I thought I’d share a few of my favourite things in the dog realm with you.  The black bulldog (I KNOW you love him!) is from Urban Barn and the only thing that may endear him to me more  is a Bruins dog tag for around his neck (we want the cup!). I’m often asked by friends who are thinking about getting another dog, “is it twice as much work or not that bad?”, and the answer is well, yes, it can be twice the work –  but if you have the right tools, two is definitely better than one.

Miko’s Rice Crackers

Miko's Rice Crackers for DogsI had no idea how easy it is to make your own crackers! I’m constantly trying to cut out anything processed, and snack food is the one area where I struggle. Lately I’ve been addicted to plain popcorn with melted coconut oil and lime squeezed on top (takes the dryness out and makes it super tasty). A “people” version of these home baked rice crackers (no kelp, add a little salt) dipped in edamame hummus just might get me out of the popcorn rut. Miko is my youngest, and that was his name when we took him in. Miko is actually a Japanese term, and since rice crackers are too, I thought I would name these crackers after him.  With brown rice flour, sesame seeds and oil  and kelp (good for dogs), there’s a whole lot of goodness and flavour for the fur babies.

INGREDIENTS:
2 cups of brown rice flour
1/3 cup sesame seeds
TBS kelp
1/2 TSP rosemary
1 cup warm water
3 TSP sesame oil
TSP honey

Tuna Treats & Cat Food

Tuna Treat for Cats RecipeBecause Cats are People Too! Well, you know what I mean.

It’s busy times for this chick – filming like mad, opening up & working at the cottage – this year our dock (our big beautiful 10 X 16 dock, boo hoo) was taken away  by the “once in a hundred years” crazy high water level.  So it’s planning and rebuilding among the many other tasks that go along with getting the property ready for the season. The Boys are happy, though, Labs and water, fresh air and freedom! So, I haven’t had much time in the kitchen, but do I have some purrfect recipes from my show, Fido & Wine, to share! We often get viewers writing in asking about recipes for cats, so we did heed the call and Fluffy & Wine came to be. This is a great show (free for now online in Canada) if you want to watch our host Laura make these tuna treats, or our vet expert Dr. Anya showing you how to make a home cooked meal.  And as if that isn’t enough – if you’re interested in feeding raw to your cat – we even have a guest showing us what she whips up for her cat, Casey! Here are the recipes for both the Tasty Tuna Treats and Dr. Anya’s home cooked cat food. Meow.

Ingredients:
½ can tuna
1 cup breadcrumbs
1 egg
TBS catnip

First, preheat your oven to 350. This is so easy – just mix all four ingredients together. Start with ½ a can of tuna. Just break apart the chunks of tuna. Add all of the liquid from the can to it. Next, add in a cup of breadcrumbs. Then one large egg…and finally, the ingredient that makes these so irresistible to cats – CATNIP!  Mix together and form these into a bit of a dough ball using some parchment paper. This is a bit crumbly, so the easiest thing to do is to use the parchment paper to help you form it. Once it’s come together, just roll it out to about a 1/8th to a 1/4 inch thick. Then use your knife to gently cut them into little squares. Simply place on a baking tray (you can leave them on the parchment paper – less mess) and pop these in the oven for 6-10 minutes. You just want them to get a little brown.

Since we aren’t adding preservatives, keep these in the fridge for 3-5 days and you can always freeze some for later if you like.

DR. ANYA YUSCHENKO’S – HOME COOKED RECIPE FOR CATS
Cats are obligate carnivores – they have to have meat. Dr. Anya’s recipe tries to recreate what they would eat in the wild: 75% meat/bone, 25% roughage. Here’s how you do it:

Salmon Sweet Potato Snaps (grain-free)

Salmon Sweet Potato SnapsHere fishy, fishy, fishy…The Boys are fish freaks! And nothing helps their coat get a full lustre going on like some omega rich salmon.

This recipe is super easy, and only 4, count ‘em 4, ingredients! I know my mom would say, geez salmon is expensive for dogs, don’t you think, but hey ma, to buy small packets of these types of treats is super high, you should see how many you get for about 7 bucks! Happy mother’s day by the way to all you awesome moms out there.

INGREDIENTS:
1 cup of cooked salmon (I used two small filets)
1 cup cooked & cooled sweet potato
2 cups of fresh spinach, chopped
1 2/3 cup of buckwheat flour (if you care about grain-free, otherwise use whole wheat or rye flour)
P.S. those are blueberry eyes, not raisins – raisins are a no for dogs.
Salmon Sweet Potato Dog TreatsSimply cook your salmon filets plain (350 for 12 minutes or so) or if you are using canned salmon, you are ahead of the game. You can pre-cook 2 small sweet potatoes in the oven (400 degrees for about 45 minutes) or microwave them for about 10 minutes. Let them cool before using.

In a large mixing bowl, flake in your salmon, then squeeze in the insides of your sweet potatoes. Add the chopped spinach and give her a good mix & mash. Add your flour until you are happy with your dough. It’s a wetter dough, so you will need lots of flour to roll out. I don’t like adding a ton of flour to my treats to make them drier unless I’m really looking for a hard treat. Less is more for our furry friends. Cut into desired shapes or squares.

Bake long and low at 250 for 40 minutes or give ‘er at 350 for 25 minutes.

May the fish be with you.

Leftovers à la mode

Leftovers Dog Treat RecipeThere’s always a fridge purge when I get back from the grocery store – any wilting vegetables etc. that I just have to admit aren’t going to get eaten, must go to make room for the fresh stuff! As hard as I try each week to buy what will get eaten – it’s not that easy to predict as I’ll have rough menu planned but I’m prone to going off course if we get a hankering for a certain meal. I don’t feel guilty about it because I can make dog treats out of just about anything! This is what happens when you toss a bunch of things together and try to make some good treats. The dough ended up being too wet and I didn’t want to keep adding tapioca flour, so I put it into a pie mold et voilà! It worked. Add a dollop of greek yogurt and a dehydrated pear chip and you have Leftover Pie à la mode.

Pumpkin Apple Jerky

Pumpkin Apple Jerky I’ve been getting crazy with the dehydrator lately…looking for some healthy snack replacements for our (human) vice – CHIPS. Crunchy, salty kettle chips, thank you for the addiction, Miss Vickie.  So far I’m pretty happy with apple chips, not so much on the banana chips (chewy not crunchy, boo).  Although I must say that The Boys didn’t bulk up too much this winter, as I try to keep Hank slim and trim to avoid extra weight on his arthritic hips. However, they do need their veggies, and this leather’s a sweet treat that’s super healthy.  This is about as basic as it gets, guys, two ingredients at a 1:1 ratio. Pumpkin puree and applesauce. If you don’t already know it – pumpkin is amazing for a dog’s digestion health. I add cinnamon as it’s a great anti-inflammatory for the senior citizen’s arthritis.

INGREDIENTS:
Pumpkin Puree (PLAIN)
Applesauce (UNSWEETENED)

Simply mix together a cup or two of the pumpkin and the same amount of applesauce. You can deyhydrate in the oven at it’s lowest temperature (usually 170) for about 8 hours. Most bloggers say to put it on plastic wrap as it won’t melt, I chose parchment paper because I just wasn’t sure about heating plastic – the parchment “cooks” a bit and you have to peel the leather off of it somewhat, but I’m still happy with the results. I cut out pieces of parchment to fit in my dehydrator (I have a cheapie round one) and then spread them with the mixture, thick enough that you don’t see the parchment. (1/8th – 1/4 inch thick) Then I set it to 130 degrees.  Place the trays in the dehydrator and start checking it after 6 hours. I left mine in until it’s really, really dry (at least 10 hours) as I don’t think it’s a good idea to give sticky jerky to a dog.  You don’t want a product that’s going to be sticking to the roof of their mouth or propose any kind of choking hazard.   This leather is a lot like chicken or beef jerky in terms of the hardness/dryness. I ripped mine into the size of pieces I wanted, a more patient person would cut them neatly with clean scissors :)

BOL!
