New Dog Treats Recipe - Yummy Homemade Treats for Your Pooches

Dog Treat Recipe
Big thanks to PJ for sending in!
A little treat to keep your "best friend" happy!

1/4 cup hot tap water
8 chicken bouillon cubes
1 package active dry yeast
1 tsp sugar
1-1/2 cups tomato juice
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups wheat germ
2 cups whole-wheat flour

1. Pour the water into a large bowl. Add the chicken cubes & crush them with a fork. Stir in the yeast & sugar & let stand for about 5 minutes.
2. Stir in the tomato juice, 1 cp all-purpose flour & the wheat germ. Stir with a large spoon to form a smooth batter. Then stir in the remaining all-purpose & whole-wheat flours. This will make the dough very dry & stiff.
3. Take a couple of handfuls of dough out & work into a small ball shape. Then, with a rolling pin, flatten the balls on a lightly floured surface. Cut with our dogbone cutters. If the dough is too sticky, add a little more flour.
4. Now use a cookie cutter to cut out your dog treats.
5. Finally, use a spatula to put your dog treats onto a cookie sheet. Then bake at 325° for 20-30 minutes.
6. Serve with a bowl of water & a nice big bone!

P.S. Make these even more special by cutting out with a cute Dog Bone Cookie Cutter

Blackberry Limeade Recipe

This sounded so good to me. I think I would make one change to it -- I'd replace the water with seltzer! Make it Sparkling! (From Dorina)

6 cups water, divided (or take Dorina's suggestion and make it sparkle!)
3 cups fresh blackberries
1 cup sugar
2/3 cup fresh lime juice (about 4 limes)
8 thin lime slices
Fresh blackberries (optional)

Place 1 cup water and 3 cups blackberries in a blender. Process until smooth. Press blackberry puree through a sieve into a large pitcher. Discard seeds. Add remaining 5 cups water, sugar, and lime juice to pitcher. Stir until sugar dissolves. Place 1 lime slice and a few blackberries, if desired, into each of 8 glasses. Pour about 1 cup limeade over each serving.Makes 8 servings.
