I have a few surprises planned for you all, so let's go!
It's the season for giving, and so each Wednesday this month, I'll send you a special gift! I've gone into my vault of doggie goodies and chosen a few of my favorites and I think you are going to love each one as much as I do!
Homemade Gifts Send a Special Message
Remember the hand made gifts you've received? Crafts that kids bring home from school? Did someone create a gift from scratch with you in mind? Did you feel the special message meant just for you in that small kind gesture?
Today, it's about Homemade Gifts for your dog. Yes, I'm talking about treats made from scratch. Even if baking isn't your jam, this recipe for homemade dog treats is so easy and so yummy- it's definitely the way to your dog's heart!
2 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1 tablespoon wheat germ
6 tablespoons bacon grease or 1/3 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup ice-cold water
Directions: Preheat your oven to 350. Combine all the dry ingredients. Cut in the bacon grease or oil. Mix in the egg. Add just enough ice water to form a dough. Roll out on a floured surface to 1/2 inch thick and cut into your dog's favorite shapes with a cookie cutter. Bake 25 - 30 minutes.
And... oh yeah... one more thing. You know the bacon you cooked to get the grease for the treats? Well, you can just crumble it up and mix it into the dough!! Doggie happiness overload!!
