The Dog-Gone Good Cookbook – Tasty Recipes for You and Your Dog!
22 April, 2013
I had the opportunity to speak with Gayl Pruitt, the author of “The Dog- Gone Good Cookbook” which provides healthy and tasty recipes that we humans and our dogs (and sometimes cats) can enjoy. It is such a great concept because we are always looking for ways to keep ourselves and our pets healthy.
Cook for you and your dog
The Dog-Gone Good Cookbook is a fun, healthy recipe book for humans and their canine kids. It is full of tasty, natural recipes that dog owners and dogs can enjoy together and includes more than one hundred balanced, delicious recipes that are corn, sugar, soy, and gluten free. It is sprinkled with gorgeous, full color images of dogs enjoying the Dog-Gone Good cuisine.
The recipes are human, canine, and kid friendly and are easy—even for the beginner cook. There is a list of foods that dogs should never have and a list of fruits and vegetables that are perfect for you and your pet to experience together. There are also sections for equipment and supplies, staples and ingredients to keep on hand, basic techniques, and natural doggie supplements.
The book includes some great and innovative dishes
Sample recipes include Spaghetti and Meatballs, Fish Burgers with Parsley Dilled Mayonnaise, Braised Turkey Soup, Lamb Shanks with Figs and Blueberries, Chicken Tenders with Coconut and Sesame Seeds, and Pumpkin Frittata, as well as veggie side dishes, yummy sauces, and treats. How great is that. I can’t wait to try them for myself. And, above all, the recipes are Gluten, Soy, Corn and Sugar Free!
The book is divided into sections according to your needs
The first half of the book is for an occasional meal (for both you and your dog). The last part of the book is for dogs only, bulk food (a complete balanced meal for the healthy dog). And they also have suggestions for introducing fresh human grade food for the dog that needs to eat a commercial diet.
Three sub-chapters also address vegan dog foods, gelatin-rich dog foods, and sauces. Layout of recipes is excellent, all on single pages. They are good, common recipes, such as meat loaf, stir-fry, spaghetti and meat balls, and so on, even desserts.
The book is beautifully illustrated and the recipes are easy to follow. I am not much of a cook and I am excited to try some of the recipes. She will eventually branch out to cats as well and I can’t wait to have Sammy, my cat, try those.
You can order her book at her site : The Dog Gone Cook Book. You and your dogs will be happy you bought it!
