Recipe: Sweet Potato Chips

My family always has sweet potatoes in the house so this is an easy fix.

Slice up a sweet potato thinly and place on a baking sheet, cook at 250 for 1.5 hours, turn and cook for another hour. Let them cool & store uncovered. Done!

Recipe: Homemade Jerky

If you’ve been watching the recalls and such on Jerky Dog treats and you feed them, it’s time to invest in a dehydrator. We have one and the dogs LOVE it! I love it too, of course. Not only can I make human treats but I can dehydrate anything for the dogs like fish, venison, beef, chicken, turkey, sweet potatoes etc. Very simple, no seasoning or getting messy apart from the cutting up process.

There’s no reason not to and healthier in the long run as well!

Recipe: Dried Liver Treats

I found this recipe on one of the sites I frequent for family recipes and thought I’d give it a go since I’m over run with beef liver from our last beef.


Total Time: 2 hrs 40 mins
Prep Time: 10 mins
Cook Time: 2 hrs 30 mins

1lb Beef Liver
3 Whole Garlic Cloves (omit for cats) (optional) — I’ll Omit, because I’m not to comfortable with garlic and dogs, being it is a member of the onion family.


1.  Rinse liver in cool water.
2. Fill a large pot with water and bring to a boil.
3. Add liver and garlic to boiling water.
4. Simmer for 1/2 to 3/4 hours until well done.
5. Allow liver to cool. (Discard garlic).
6. Cut liver into 1/2 inch cubes.
7. Spread on a foil lined cookie sheet.
8. Bake at 250 F for a minimum of 2 hours.
9. Liver is done when dry to touch and has shrunk to approximately 1/4 inch cubes.

Recipe: P-nut butter Pup Pops

If it’s hot in your area and your pooch is looking overheated, this is a great little treat for them.  Also, it’s much healthier than the stuff you can buy from your store’s freezer isle for dogs.

Frozen P-nut butter Pup Pops (for dogs of course)


16 ounces vanilla yogurt
1/2 cup smooth peanut butter (low sugar)


Put the peanut butter in a microwave safe bowl and heat until melted. Watch it carefully because it melts fast! Mix the peanut butter with the yogurt. Pour the mixture into whatever containers you want to use. You can freeze the pops in an ice cube tray or in little yogurt cups.


Nimh Dog Review:
Our guys LOVED these things!  They didnt last long.  We did ours in a muffin tin and made perfect portions for our crew.
