Homemade Dog Food
My senior pooch loves this recipe (with a few additions). She is a good eater, but has an allergy to beef that gives her seizures. She adores all of the beta carotene veggies... Pumpkin, carrots, sweet potatoes, squash... So I add a can of mashed sweet potatoes or pumpkin, blended veggies, and a teaspoon of garlic powder ground with a teaspoon of rosemary. I brown either ground turkey or chicken, use 1 cup brown rice and 1 cup oatmeal, 2 chicken bouillon cubes. But here's the kicker, I put that all in my slow cooker with the 6 cups of water, on low, before bed.... in the morning I turn it up to high for 1/2 hour or so and add two eggs and eggshells as described by other reviewers. Voila! Dog food for breakfast! I just have to keep my husband out of it. He he he

I made this for Thanksgiving and it was a big hit. We made a lot and froze the rest. Three weeks later we had an impromptu large gathering at the house and scrambled around to pull off refreshments and viola! We looked like we had it all planned... which was bad because the occasion was a funeral. lol Nevertheless, I think this is a really good recipe. One note though, we tried it with Sprite and with Club soda and the Sprite was waaaay too sweet - club soda was perfect (Even for kids). Thanks!

We can't use any alcohol, but don't let that stop you from appreciating this fabulous recipe. Made once by the recipe (using pure non-sugared grape juice instead of wine) and they were awesome. Then made them again for a pot luck with some alterations. I made 2 dozen, 1/2 pinion-1/2 sliced almond - used freshly made concord grape juice without sugar - about 3/4 cup, with Agave - 3/4 cup, a sprinkle of fresh rosemary from my garden. Poached the dates in that over medium heat as the recipe states. Then I removed the dates, arranged them on a serving platter, added 3 tablespoons of balsamic vinegar and reduced it to a sauce. Drizzled that over the dates and garnished with a twig of rosemary. It was a huge hit! Someone told my husband that he was so lucky to live with such a good cook... ha! I think you could use unsweetened cranberry - or almost any tart fruit juice and achieve a yummy result. Thank you!
