Those of you who visit here often know I love dogs (and cats) and that they are an important part of my life.
For that reason, I was intrigued when I saw a cookbook devoted just to making wholesome treats for dogs. I had to know more. Thanks to the lovely Alyssa at Cider Mill Press, I had the opportunity to review the cookbook. Here are my thoughts on this fun cookbook you shouldn’t miss if you have a dog in your life.
THE ORGANIC DOG BISCUIT COOKBOOK by the Bubba Rose Biscuit Company
But what about the treats that dogs so love? Well, the Bubba Rose Biscuit Company has created the most delightful and useful cookbook to aid in this matter – THE ORGANIC DOG BISCUIT COOKBOOK. This fully revised and updated edition offers over 100 tail-wagging recipes.
The charming hardcover cookbook is divided into six chapters and includes resources, a recipe index and a sidebar index. In addition, there is an introduction section that details the helpful tools of the trade you’ll need to prepare the recipes (simple items you’ll probably already have on hand), as well as substitutions, storage tips, and much more beneficial advice.
Here’s an example of one of the various chapters. Chapter 1 (Forget-Me-Nots) offers a unique recipe for each month of the year making it a special time for your four-legged fur baby. For instants, while the humans are enjoying Halloween candy your dog can enjoy Pumpkin Bites.
The recipes are simple and easy to prepare. Many of the recipes contain only a few ingredients and can be prepared and ready for tasting within an hour. While the main ingredients include such items as oat flour or brown rice flour, most can be found in the specialty/organic aisle of your grocery store.
‘Snickerdoodles’ was the first recipe I decided to try. After purchasing the oat flour and brown rice flour, I had the other five ingredients (cinnamon, egg, honey, vanilla, and water) already on hand. The recipe was quick and easy to fix. When the treats cooled, I offered a taste to our three English Shepherds. They sniffed, tentatively tasted and then devoured the treats.
They love the new treats and I love the fact that they are good for them and contain no additives or preservatives. In fact, the treats looks so good you might be tempted to try one yourself. Since they are made with all natural ingredients that you normally cook with, why not?
THE ORGANIC DOG BISCUIT COOKBOOK is beautifully designed with 224 pages. There are no color photos of the finished treats, but charming dog illustrations throughout the book. With a handy bookmarker attached, you’ll never lose your place when making treats for your four-legged babies. This helpful and informative cookbook is a must-have for dog lovers.

FTC Full Disclosure - This book was sent to me by the publisher in hopes I would review it. However, receiving the complimentary copy did not influence my review.
Thanks so much for stopping by today. Do you make treats for the four-legged fur babies in your life? BTW: I tried to get some photos of Jeremiah, Eli and Sundance enjoying the treats, but they gobble the treats up so fast it was a blur.
