Dinner For Dogs by Henrietta Morrison is a wonderful addition to the growing literature on cooking for your dog. Inspired by her own dog's dietary problems, Ms. Morrison set about finding good meals for her Border Terrier, Lily. Her Lily's Kitchen foods are a result of that search and now she shares great recipes for all dogs. Consulting with a veterinarian and a nutritionist, the resulting recipes are healthy and easy to make.
It is noted that the recipes have not been tested as complete meals but they make wonderful additions to any dog's diet. Choices range from Breakfast and Daily Dinners to Tasty Treats and Old Hounds. General nutritional information is included at the beginning of the book and each recipe has calories, protein and fat listed.
Many of the recipes can easily work for feeding your human family as well as your canine family. For example, the Apple and Blueberry Muffins or Frittata, are two great choices for breakfast for the whole family.
With all the recent pet treat recalls, having some healthy treats to make and store for your dog is an excellent idea. Ms. Morrison even includes a recipe for making your own "kibble".
The book is currently available for pre order at amazon.com for $10.85. This is a great deal for 50 recipes in a trade paperback book. The book will go on sale on June 4, 2013. It is worth ordering ahead for birthday and holiday gifts for dog loving friends. You will want your own copy for your kitchen too!
