I started a 'common sense' nutritional program. I don't call it the 'D' word, simply because a diet (thats a four letter word) just doesn't work for me. I typically start my day with this smoothie, and often end it the same way.
I make these for Priss, the Spoiled Rotten Pomeranian. She's part of the family too, so making her something special is fun for me too. With so many dog food and treat recalls lately, its scary when you read ingredients and wonder where the product came from. With this recipe, the cook knows exactly what goes in, and into their furkids.
You're probably looking at this recipe and thinking, huh?
LOL.... well, they are really good. If you love carrots like we do, you'll love these too. Its a unique way to get the kids to eat carrots. They're good for out eyes.
Priss and BB, the Spoiled Rotten Pomeranians love this and I make it for for special occasions. Like birthdays, or holidays. With so many dog food and treat recalls these days, its good that I know what goes into what they eats.
When I was in high school, I took Home Economics... as did a lot of young women.. and men. Actually I took the class because I wanted to learn to sew. I'd been cooking since I had to drag a chair to the stove to see in the pots.
Surprisingly, this easy cookie recipe was the first one we got in class. Its been a favorite in my family since then.
I made this in pans that measured about 2' x 3' at the restaurant I used to own. Doubling or even tripled the recipe.
I used different canned fruits... or sometimes even combined them... half the pan was one flavor, the other half another flavor!
