Goodies Galore

Finally Mum agreed to help me paw the photos and recipes for Saturdays Goodie Fest!

First we made Stinky Salmon Cookies, this is a recipe we snagged from Sherman a while back and they are now a firm favourite in this house.

So first you will need:

1 cup of rolled oats
1 cup of grated cheese
2 eggs
can of salmon with juice
2 shakes of garlic powder

(we doubled up on this recipe because my beans love these too and so we made sure there was plenty stinky goodness to go round)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees
Cover cookie sheet with foil and spray on a little non-stick spray.

ok.. now dump all the ingredients into a bowl like so..

then give it all a good smooshing around like so...

Once it is well and truly smooshed, dump it all onto your cookie sheet and press flat into a thin layer about 1/4 inch thick, add a little more grated cheese on top if you wish

Now throw it in that oven and wait for 25 horribly long minutes till it is ready.
Once the 25 minutes have crawled by.. remove from oven and cool (yet more horrible waiting) then cut into manly sized chunks like so..

and now for those most important bit.. this bit is crucial..

feed the dog the tasty goodness for approval!

Mmmmm Stinky Salmon Goodness!!

Next we made Milk Biscuits

now for these you will need:

3/4 cup hot water
1/3 cup margarine
1/2 cup powdered milk
1 tsp salt
1 egg (beaten)
3 cups of whole wheat flour

Preheat oven to 325 degrees
Grease a couple of cookie trays

In a large bowl...

pour hot water over margarine
stir in powdered milk, salt and egg
add flour 1/2 cup at a time to form a dough like this..

knead the dough for a few minutes till it is nice and soft then pat or roll out to about 1/2 inch thick.
Cut into shapes (we usually go for bones but went for something different this time) can you guess what shapes we had cut out?

Bake your cookies for 50 (VERY LONG) minutes then turn out and allow to cool and tell your furry friend several times that NO they are not ready yet!

They will dry out quite hard and this recipe makes about 1 and 1/4 lb of cookies!!

batch number 1..

Cookie Mailmen and Turtle!

Why a turtle I hear you cry!!

well actually it was LOTS of Turtles..

and they were in honour of Tadpole and Figs Mom's birthday.. seems she likes the Turtle Creatures!

and don't forget the all important furry friend taste test

Mmmm num num num!!

Oh and this is the Peanut Bread that I got to sample.. smothered in Peanut Butter!! I ate that too fast for photographic example though!!

If you want the recipe for the Peanut Bread or for the Peanut Butter Pops.. (which Mum forgot to photograph!! though they are on my blog elsewhere) then just holler!

Gucci said...

Hehe I like your turtle cookies! :]


Jan's Funny Farm said...

Mmmmm. Sounds yummy. We copied these recipes but doubt Jan will make them for us. She has a thing about turning on the oven. She says it just plain costs too much to use it since the price of gas is so high.

Moco said...

I am printing that salmon recipe at this very minute. Next will be a trip to the pantry where I know there is canned salmon. Yummy.
We will be displaying our Nowzad supporter button on our blog soon.
I like the concept of napping over fighting also.

Lady Kaos said...

I WANT THE BREAD RECIPE!!!! Did I hollar loud enough? Looks like you had a very busy day of taste testing. We got the cheese cookie recipe from Sherman's mom and I can't remember how they taste it's been so long. Mom says she'll make them soon but Mom forets to do a lot of things lately.

Samantha ~ Holly and Zac ~ said...

Your cookie mailmen and Turtles look fun Ben.

It looks like you enjoyed all your homecooked treats.

We hope our person makes us some yummy treats like those, she keeps saying she is going to but hasn't actually done any yet. :-/

Joe Stains said...

omdog you are SO SO SO SO lucky!! Seriously dude. Mom does all this cooking and never makes anything for US the most important members of the family! She better try those salmon treats, I think I can smell them from here!!

Bogart said...

I LOVE that you ate the head off of the mailman first :)


Coco said...

Hi Ben!
My mommy said that i had to tell you that you look EXACTLY like her "Heart Dog". His name was Pasko. Pasko went to doggy heaven one year ago and she cried when she saw your photo and then smiled because she konows how blessed she was to have had him. Mommy said that when i was a puppy and my ears were floppy i looked like a tic-tac version of pasko...
Thank you Ben for coming to my page... can i add you to my friends list?

Arabella said...

Cara said...

Got my Dad and little bean to make some treats they did tuna not salmon and they are yummmmy.

Coco said...

My mommy w ants to try the Salmon Recipe. She gave me a home made mild bone that was made for me, but it was so hard that i couldnt chew through it..not even a little nibble off of it. Are the Salmon ones softer?

Sunny,Scooter,Jamie said...

Oh YUMMERS.....We wish Mom would do some sort of cooking around here....
We would love the peanut butter bread recipie. Mom loves bread and loves peanut butter. She might try to make it! (and give us some too) Let us know if you printed it somewhere and we missed it.
All your cookis look great!!
Hugs & Hi 5s
