Sunset Magazine

1 pound beef liver
2 large eggs, shells washed
1 cup low-fat cottage cheese
1 1/2 cups wheat germ
about 3 1/4 cups whole-wheat flour

Rinse liver and cut into 1-inch chunks. Put in a 2-quart pan with 1 cup water, and bring to a boil on high heat. Reduce heat, cover and simmer gently until liver is no longer pink, about 5 minutes. Put liver in a blender, saving the liquid
from previous step. Break in eggs, including shells. Whirl to puree, adding reserved liquid as needed. Scrape mixture into bowl, adding remaining cooking liquid, cottage cheese, wheat germ and 3 cups flour. Stir until evenly moistened.
Knead until dough no longer feels sticky, adding more flour as required. Roll out dough onto a floured board until 1/2 inch thick. Cut dough with floured bone-shaped cookie cutter. Bake in 300 degree oven until bones are tinged darker brown and feel firm to touch, about 1 hour. Cool on racks. Once cool, bones should be hard when pressed; if not, bake 10 minutes more at 300 degrees and cool. (Makes about 4 1/2 dozen 3 1/2 inch long bones.)

Submitted to r.p.d. by (KandiAna)

1 cup cornmeal
1 cup flour (I like whole wheat)
2 lbs pureed raw liver
1 tsp garlic powder
2 raw eggs

Mix the above and bake in a 9x13 inch pan for 20 minutes at 325. If you take
them out at this point and cut them into the size you want, you can either keep
them frozen and pull them out in handfuls (they are dry and firm to the touch) or
you can then put them back in the oven for an additional 20 minutes. Just make
sure to cut them before extended cooking or you'll end up with liver bricks :).



Tom Rice

1 package dry yeast
1/4 cup warm water
1 pint chicken stock
3 1/2 cups unbleached white flour
2 cups whole wheat flour
1 cup rye flour
2 cups cracked wheat (or wheat germ)
1/2 cup dry milk
1 teaspoon salt (optional)
1 egg beaten with 1 tablespoon milk

Dissolve yeast in 1/4 cup warm water. Add to chicken stock. Combine all dry
ingredients. Add chicken stock mixture.
Knead on a floured surface for about 3 minutes, working into a stiff dough.
Roll out to a thickness of 1/4 inch. Cut into bars or with a cookie cutter..
Brush with egg/milk wash and place on cookie sheets. Bake in 300 degree
oven for about 45 minutes. Turn off heat and leave biscuits in oven overnight.
Makes 4 to 5 dozen bar




2 lbs. hamburger 
1 boiled potato 
10 oz shrimp or lobster, cod etc... 
1 cup freeze dried liver or fresh raw liver 
2 cups cooked rolled oats 
1/4 cup blueberries (minced) 
1/2 cup cooked brown rice 
1/4 cup wheat germ 
1/4 cup brewers yeast 
1 TBS minced garlic 
tad of cinnamon 

I put the beef through a food processor and the boiled potato and shrimp. The blueberries should be crushed and minced....resembling digested fruit.. Blend the ingredients together and roll into balls. Fed fresh and raw.

For variety, I may add more shrimp, lobster, chicken, barley and yucca, raisons etc...




1 c Whole wheat flour
3/4 c Dry milk
1/4 c Cornmeal
1/3 c Shortening
1 tb Bouillon granules
1/2 c Plain flour
1/2 c Quick cooking oats
1 ts Sugar
1 Egg, slightly beaten
1/2 c Hot water

Combine flour, cornmeal, milk, oats and sugar. Cut in shortening, add egg, bullion, and hot water. Knead 5 mins. and roll in 1/2" thick and cut out to favorite shapes. Micro at 1/2 power for 5 to 10 mins, rotating plate.
Makes 5 1/2 small shapes. 



3 Jars Baby Food -- beef or carrots
1/4 C Cream Of Wheat
1/4 C Dry milk powder

Combine ingredients in bowl and mix well. Roll into small balls and place
on well-greased cookie sheet. Flatten slightly with a fork. Bake in
preheated 350 degree oven for 15 minutes until brown. Cool on wire racks
and STORE IN REFRIGERATOR. Also freezes well. Another Prodigy member made
these substituting cream of wheat for wheat germ and then used tablespoon
to make cookie sized drops on plate. Microwave for 4 minutes on Medium
Suggested keeping an eye on them in microwave and perhaps start out for
only 3 1/2 minutes. They do come out soft. Also suggested using
Beef/Vegetable Dinner Baby Dinner instead of Beef or Chicken. 



3 c Boiled sliced potatoes
2 T Grated vegetables
1/2 c Creamed cottage cheese
1 T Nutritional Yeast
2 T Grated carrots
1/4 c Whole milk
1/4 c Grated cheese

Layer in a casserole dish the first 5 ingredients. Then pour the milk on top of all; sprinkle with cheese. Bake about 15 minutes at 350 until cheese melts and slightly browns. Serve cool.

Notes: As a potato substitute, you can use 3 cups of cooked oatmeal or 3 cups cooked brown rice



Dog Biscuits--Bacon Flavored
Yield: 40 servings

5 c Whole wheat flour
1 c Milk
2 Eggs
10 tb Vegetable oil or bacon fat
1 pn or garlic powder
1 ts Salt
1/2 c Cold water
1 tb Vegetable oil or bacon fat***

Original recipe didn't say why this was listed but I suspect this last tbsp. is to grease cookie sheet with.
Mix all ingredients well. Pinch off pieces of the dough and roll them into two-inch balls. ***SEE NOTE. Put them on a greased cookie sheet. Bake them at 350 degrees for 35 to 40 minutes. Let them cool, then store in an airtight container.

1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
1 large egg
1/2 cup peanut butter (all natural)
1 1/2 cups water
4 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 cup cornmeal (white or yellow)
3/4 cup whole rolled oats

     Combine applesauce, egg, peanut butter, and water in a large bowl.

     Combine dry ingredients in a separate bowl.  Add dry ingredients to applesauce mixture.  Mix well, then knead dough on a lightly floured surface until thoroughly mixed.

     Roll dough to 1/8-inch thickness, and cut out shapes using cookie cutters.  (I use a small round cutter to get a good size--about size of 50 cent piece).

     Place on lightly greased cookie sheet and bake for 50 minutes.  Turn oven off and leave  biscuits in oven for 20 minutes to harden.  Transfer to rack and cool completely.

     When cool, place in quart-size ziplock bag or other sealed container and store in refrigerator.

     Makes about 60 treats, depending on size of cutter.

(1)  When I open a container of applesauce to get 1/2 cup, I measure the remainder into 1/2 cup portions and freeze in ziplock sandwich bags.  Then when you're ready to make more treats, just take one bag out, thaw, and you are ready to use and do not have to open more applesauce.
(2)  I do not leave my treats in oven after done so that they remain soft--my babies like them better that way.
(3)  I usually heat treats for 5-8 seconds in microwave, especially if weather is cold.
(4)  These can actually be eaten by "people" with cream cheese; hubby says they are very tasty!
