DINNER: From The Three Dog Bakery Cookbook
Labradoodle Lasagna

10 cooked lasagna noodles
1 cup low-fat cottage cheese
1 cup frozen chapped spinach, thaw and drain
1 ½ c skim milk
2 tbs white flour
¼ cup chopped tomatoes
½ tsp minced garlic
¼ tsp oregano
¼ tsp parsley

Preheat oven to 350
In a bowl, combine cottage cheese and spinach. Take each lasagna noodle and spread 2 tbls of the cottage cheese mixture along the inside of the noodle, then roll each one up. Place in a 9x13-inch greased baking dish and set aside.
Mix flour and milk in a covered container and shake until blended. Place in a small saucepan over medium heat and stir constantly until slightly thickened. Add tomato and spices.
Pour sauce over noodles and bake for 20 minutes. Cool before serving. Store in fridge.

(I have also made this with ground beef and ground turkey and the doods liked it tons. I used 2.5 lbs of cooked ground meat and added it to the cottage cheese and spinach mixture, rolled inside the lasagna. I also did 12 noodles as I have three dogs and had 4 meals from this. When I make it I freeze the remaining and give one time a week for 4 weeks.)

***Note: Amaranth can be found in a health food store, if not use barley. Barley will need 4 cups of broth and 50 minutes to cook.***

I made these last night and Gracie loved them. I think all the ingredients are very healthy.

1 7oz can salmon drained, inc any bones or skin
1/2 to 2/3 c steel ground oats (recipe called for bread crumbs but Gracie is not doing any wheat products)
1 or 2 eggs inc ground eggshell if desired
1/3 c fresh chopped parsley
1 fresh beet grated
1 stalk celery grated or chopped finely

Mix the ingredients and put back in refrigerator until cold. Make patties and saute in some olive oil 4-5 minutes per side. Or you could use a nonstick pan and no oil. Serve as meal, kibble supplement or special snack. My dogs all went wild for this! Made about 7 patties.
DINNER: From "The Honest Kitchen" (posted on Facebook)


1 frozen pie crust
3 cups plain kefir
1 Tbls fresh basil (chopped)
1 Tbls extra virgin olive oil
1/2 cup shredded fresh spinach
4 eggs, lightly beaten
1 teaspoon salt
A few grinds of black pepper
1/3 cup of grated parmesan cheese
1/4 cup ground or diced beef or chicken, finely chopped

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees
2. Warm the basil and kefir in a small saucepan over low heat for about 10 minutes and set aside.
3. Heat oil gently in a medium skillet.
4. Add the spinach to the skillet and cook until it just begins to stick to the pan and then turn off the heat.
5. Whisk together the warmed kefir, eggs, salt, pepper and cheese.
6. Add all of these to the spinach, stirring gently so that everything is thoroughly combined.
7. Sprinkle the meat on the bottom of the pie crust and cover with the whisked mixture.
8. Bake on the bottom rack for 15 minutes.
9. Transfer the dish to the middle rack of the oven, turn down the heat and bake for another 30 minutes at 350 degrees or
until it feels firm on top.

My notes: I put the pie shell on a baking sheet that was lined with foil. The pie crust is pretty full, so moving it after 15 minutes has to be done carefully. I needed to let it cool for a good 30-45 minutes to be still warm but not too hot to eat.

I bought the kefir at Trader Joe's. It's in the refrigerated section by the milk and yogurt in stores.
Liva Drops

4 cups quick oats
1 cup cooked and chopped beef or calves liver

4. Bake 10-15 minutes until golden brown

Here's Lauren's Liver Treats so you don't have to go to the link:

Moc's Homemade Dog Treat Recipe

3 eggs
2/3 cup oil vegetable or olive oil
1 pound raw beef liver
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon garlic (fresh minced or dried) or garlic salt to taste
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Beat eggs and oil a few seconds in blender. Using scissors, cut liver into small pieces and add to egg/oil mixture. Add a few tablespoons of water to any liver juice remaining in the container, swish, and add to blender mixture. Add fresh minced or powdered garlic or garlic salt 'to taste' and puree until thoroughly blended. Pour mixture into bowl. Add flour while stirring. Depending on your flour, humidity, elevation, etc., adjust flour as necessary. You want the consistency of brownie batter that can be poured into the pans -- not runny, but not like cookie dough either.
Spoon batter into non-stick or spray-coated cake or jelly roll pan (I divide the batter between two standard 13x9 sheet cake pans) and spread evenly. Tap pan on counter several times to bring up any air bubbles in the batter.
Bake for 10 minutes in 425 degree oven, or until the top is dry and outer edges are just beginning to brown. The thickness of your treats and the baking time will vary depending on the size of the pan(s) you use. Remove from the oven. Cool in pans 5 minutes.
Tip cakes out of the pans onto a cutting board, one atop the other. (You can score the treats while they're still in the pan, but that can be hard on your knife blade and on a non-stick baking pan.) Let cool for another five minutes or so.
For a soft treat -- Score with a sharp knife lengthwise and widthwise into 1/2" x 1/2" (dime size) pieces. When completely cool, store. Recommended method for the young pup with teething sensitivity.
For a firm treat -- Score with a sharp knife into 1/2" x 1/2" pieces. Spread the treats out in the two baking pans or on a large cookie sheet. TURN OFF THE OVEN, and return the treats to the oven to dry for an hour or so.
You can't beat the price -- about $1.50 for all these treats! Compare the cost of preparing these healthful treats with what you'll pay retail for hot dogs or commercially processed treats full of artificial ingredients and chemical additives.
Store in an airtight container, or portion out into smaller ziplock baggies, and store in your freezer to defrost and use as needed. This recipe makes several hundred treats for use in both tracking and obedience.

Unlike commercially prepared dog treats, these meat-based homemade liver treats aren't saturated with chemical preservatives, and they'll spoil unless properly stored. Handle like any other perishable food and feed only fresh, properly stored treats.

NOTES: I use an old Oster blender. You could also use a Cuisinart or other food processor/blender. I recommend that you cut up the raw liver into small pieces with scissors before feeding it into your blender. I've experimented with different flours (try ground rye flour for a heavier bait) and have substituted chicken liver, calf liver, sardines and water-packed tuna for the liver. The batter will have variable consistency with each combination, so baking times may vary somewhat. For example:
• Use chicken liver with white flour, and add powdered spirulina* to make a green bait. This works well as a camouflaged bait for tracking in green grass -- the crows and seagulls can't see it.
• Use beef liver with dark wheat flour for use on plowed dirt tracks...
• Use chicken liver with white flour for use on sand/"moon dust" tracks...
• Use chicken liver with white flour and add a pinch of charcoal powder* for use on asphalt tracks...
• Use your imagination ...
