See also

We all love tips to make our life just a little bit more manageable. As your Dallas Household Tips Examiner I search for tips for myself and pass them along to my readers.

Seems like we see more and more recalls being announced for various dog food brands and treats. Now may be the time to check out a good homemade healthy treat for your furry, canine, family members.

Here is an easy recipe that is healthy and tasty

Pumpkin Dog Biscuits

2 eggs
1/2 cup canned pumpkin
2 tablespoons powdered milk

1/4 teaspoon sea salt
2 1/2 cups brown rice flour

Preheat oven to 350.

In large bowl, mix together eggs and pumpkin until smooth. Stir in powdered milk, sea salt, and add a pinch of dried parsley if you'd like. Add brown rice flour gradually, combining with spatula or hands to forming a stiff, dry dough. Turn out onto lightly floured surface (can use the brown rice flour) and if dough is still rough, briefly knead and press to combine.

Roll dough out on surface to the desired thickness; use biscuit or other shape cookie cutters to make various shapes, gather and re-roll scraps as you go. Place shapes on cookie sheet, no greasing or paper necessary. If desired, press fork pattern on biscuits before baking, a quick up-and-down movement with fork, lightly pressing down halfway through dough. Bake 20 minutes; Remove from oven and carefully turn biscuits over, then bake additional 20 minutes. Allow to cool completely on rack before feeding to dog.

Makes up to 75 small (1″) biscuits or 50 medium biscuits
