Yes, I like Rachel Ray...even if she is terribly overexposed.

In case you haven't noticed, the Bone Zone has added a Recipes Section under Fun Stuff (Thank you Dachsies for such a fabulous suggestion!!!). I was very excited about this because I love to bake...for the dogs. (Poor Scotty gets the shaft & has to eat store bought sweets b/c I refuse to measure anything & it always ends up awful!)

What I didn't know is DWBs already had a Tried & True Recipes section on the homepage! I recall reading about Sunshade's Turkey Biscotti a while ago but never made it because I couldn't find it again on her blog. Lucky for us...it was on DWBs!!

And even luckier...I have all the stuff at home to make them (sort of)!! It's a pretty simple list:

1 lb of minced turkey meat (I used lean ground beef)

1 cup of quick oats (I used buckwheat flour)

2 large eggs

1 tbs of minced garlic (I used garlic powder...2 big shakes)

125 g of Parmesan cheese (I used 1/2 cup)

2 tbs of oil of your choice (I used EVOO)

0.5 cup of water (I used a big splash)


In a blender, blend turkey and eggs until as smooth as possible Pour into a large mixing bowl, add in the rest of the ingredients and mix well. (I just smooshed everything together with my hands). Spread batter on a cookie sheet (well greased with vegetable oil) or in a 9 X 12 pan about 1/3 inch in thickness. Bake at 350 F until no longer wet looking inside. Approximately 45 minutes for one pan (varies from oven to oven). Cut into small pieces after it's been cooled. Keep refrigerated or in the freezer.

Here is the end result! Like a big, dry meatloaf!

And chopped into squares...you have Sunshade's Beef Biscotti Brownies!

I also made a variation on my Garlic Cheesy Cookies (I added Salmon).

And some Liver Brownies for Penny.

It was a regular doggie buffet!!

The Dogs will do anything for these goodies. Even sit close to one another.

OR, even closer...Sherman is actually letting Lola touch him!

Happy Eating!!!

Oh you guys! What a great picture. We should all live next door to each other. The cooking and tasting .... I'm drooling. My Mom made us turky meatloaf and boy was it yummy.

I swear, you guys are always making us look bad with your perfect pictures!!! Maybe if our Mom was as nice as yours we'd pose too. :)

Your doggie buffet looks delish! We didn't know about the new forum so we'll send Mom to check it out. Maybe she'll get motivated off the couch.
