Yummy Treats for Your Favorite Doggie
on July 8, 2006
I love to browse through different cookbooks. I have quite a collection, and usually go to the library to find new recipes to try before I decide to purchase the entire book. I normally look for 3 things in a cookbook, besides delicious recipes that will work for my family (including my dogs). This includes:
1) Pictures of more than ¾ of the recipes (Color pictures are the best)
2) A spiral binding, or at least on that easily lays flat
3) New & innovative recipes that have ingredients I can easily find at a grocery store
For this book, I combined my love of my three dogs, with my interest in fun, interesting cookbooks. The recipes are great, and I love that the book includes a chapter for dogs with special needs (allergies to certain food products) as I have a dog that is allergic to both corn and wheat. The chapters include: Cookies by the Spoonful, Cookie-Cutter Treats, Special Goodies for Special Occasions, Good Dogs Deserve Good Treats, and Delicacies for Dogs with Special Needs. The only thing that I disliked about the book is that there are no actual photographs of the finished recipes, and was not in a binding that laid flat. Otherwise, this is a wonderful cookbook with recipes that should leave any dog and their human begging for more great recipes.
Some of dog's favorites include: Tummy Tempting Chicken Soup Cookies, Ginny's Bonanza Treats, Carrot Crunchies, Turkey Day Treats, Grain Free Goodies, and Beef and Barley Biscuits. Enjoy!
