1/2 cup of boiled vegetables (carrots, pumpkin, potato, celery etc..)

Dog Food Recipe 4: Beef Cakes (my favorite)
1.5 cups brown rice
3 cups water
2 grated potatoes
4 grated carrots
2 chopped celery sticks
6 pounds of ground beef (or chicken if you prefer)
pinch of salt
3 tbsp of olive oil
1.5 cups of rolled oats
Preheat oven at 200C & grease 3 large muffin trays.
Cook rice with water in a large saucepan, then let cool to room temperature. In a large mixing bowl combine the potatoes, carrots, celery, beef and eggs. Mix these ingredients well with a wooden spoon. Then mix in the salt, olive oil, oats and rice.
Fill muffin cups with the mixture and pack down tightly so it is level with the rim. Cook for 30 to 45 minutes being careful not to burn them. Wait till cool then serve to your dogs and individually freeze the rest.
Dog Food Recipe 5: Merry’s Pampered Pumpkin Cookies (thanks to pamperedpuppy.com)
2 cups organic brown rice flour
1/2 cup buckwheat flour
3 tsp wheat-free baking powder
2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp powdered ginger
1/4 cup olive oil
1/2 cup honey or maple syrup
2 eggs beaten
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups organic canned pumpkin (without spice)
1/2 cup water or apple juice (reserved)
Combine the dry ingredients and mix well. In a separate bowl, combine all the wet ingredients, except for the water or juice, blending well. Mix the dry ingredients into the wet very slowly. The batter should be thick but pourable. Slowly mix in the water or juice until you have a nice consistency.
Expert Tip: Place the bowl of batter in the freezer for 10-15 minutes. It will make the spooning of the cookies on to the cookie sheet much easier.
Preheat the oven to 400°F. Take about 1/2 Tbsp size drops and place them on a well-oiled cookie sheet. Swirl the batter around as you drop it so that you create nicely shaped cookies, ending in a peak.
Bake at 400°F for 10 minutes. Cookies should be firm, but still soft and chewy, just like you like your own cookies! This recipe makes its fair share of medium-sized cookies, so make care packages for all of the other canine pals in your life. They’ll love you for it! (Just be warned that they’ll be begging for more…) Store in an air-tight container.
