greenkouki for people

okay and a super easy fresh mexican chicken soup this really impresses anyone, and it's unbelievably easy to prepare, and even good chilled.

-1 1/2 pound of raw chicken, thighs, breasts, whatever you prefer. deboned and chopped into bite sized pieces
-2 tablespoons veggie or olive oil
-2-3 cloves garlic minced
-1 ripe avocado cubed
-1/2 cup chopped cilantro
-1 white or red onion diced
-1 can diced canned tomatoes
-2 quarts chicken stock
-salt and pepper to taste
-juice of 2 limes

to prepare, get a big soup pot and brown the raw chicken in the oil. once the chicken has browned add the chicken stock and the can of diced tomatoes and minced garlic. cook on low covered for 30 minutes to an hour and season to taste. turn off the heat. Add the avocado, onions, cilantro, and lime juice. serve individually over steamed white rice in large soup bowls.

if you have any left over and want to reheat it the next day, make sure you add some diced onions, fresh cilantro, and lime juice to keep the fresh taste.

greenkouki for people

here is a super easy super yummy salsa i made up (but it's kind of a no brainer)

1 can diced tomatoes with green chilies
1/3 of a white or small red onion finely diced
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
1 garlic clove minced
juice of 1 lime
salt and black pepper to taste

put everything in the blender and blend to desired consistency. you can add different chilies, spices, or substitute tomatillos and green tomatoes to make it more interesting. let it sit overnight to meld together.

Darkevs OK, Here is a recipe for us Humans. LOL. But my dogs would probably drool over it too!

Bavarian German Potatoe Salad:


1/4 inch thick
2 chicken bouillon cubes, crushed into fine powder
1 medium onion
4 slices thick bacon, cooked and diced
1/4 cup sugar
2 tablespoons all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
2 tablespoons back fat, reserved from cooked bacon
1 cup water
1/4 cup white vinegar
1 large egg, beaten
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/4 cup fresh chives, chopped

Placed peeled and sliced potatoes into pot, add bouillon cubes and bring water to a simmer. Continue to cook potatoes until tender but still remaining there shape. You can test for tenderness using a fork. Once done drain liquid from pot and cover with lid to retain heat.
While the potatoes are cooking, in a medium saucepan cook bacon on medium-high heat until crisp. Remove bacon from pan and drain on paper towels. Discard from saucepan all but 2 tablespoons of bacon fat. To saucepan, add sugar, flour, salt and pepper to bacon grease, cook an stir until ingredients are well combined.
In a separate container whisk together wet ingredients consisting of water, vinegar, egg and lemon juice. Next add this mixture to your saucepan and using a whisk cook and stir over medium heat until mixture begins to boil. Reduce to simmer and let cook for 5 to 8 minutes.
Pour mixture over warm cooked potatoes and toss gently. Transfer German potato salad to serving bowl. Lightly sprinkle top of potato salad with paprika and garnish with chives.
This will make a ham, turkey or prime rib roast dinner tops!!

Darkevs Dog biscuit recipe (from leftovers)


Tired of eating leftover turkey? Make dog healthy biscuits out of it! here is an easy recipe that your dogs will love! It sounds pretty good to me anyway...

2 cups leftover turkey, chopped
2 cups (total) leftover sweet potatoes and any green veggies
4 tablespoons Parmesan cheese
3 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
2 large eggs
2 cups whole wheat flour
3 tablespoons safflower oil
2 tablespoons dark molasses


Pre-heat oven to 350

Spray your cooking sheet with non-stick spray and set aside.
In a blender or food processor, combine your turkey, veggies, oil and egg yolks only (reserve the whites for later). Blend until fairly smooth; some small lumps are fine.
Put the flour and parsley in a large mixing bowl. Now slowly add the blended mixture.
Mix well until you have a dough.
Roll the dough into a log shape, and put into the refrigerator until firm, about 1-2 hours.
When firm, take out and slice into cookies about an inch thick.
Place on cookie sheet, and paint each cookie with the reserved egg white.
Sprinkle some Parmesan cheese on top of each cookie.
Bake at 350 for 25 minutes; turn oven down to 250 and let your cookies bake for another 20-30 minutes. Do not let them get too brown.
Turn off the oven, but leave your cookies inside to dry out. This will take about 3-4 hours.

Apple Cider Biscuits

Apple Cider Biscuits

3 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup nonfat dry milk powder
1 tsp. sugar
1 tsp. salt
6 Tbsp. margarine or oil
1 egg
2/3 cup cold water
1/3 cup Apple Cider Vinegar

Combine dry ingredients and mix well. Add the remaining ingredients and stir with a wooden spoon to form a stiff dough. Alternately, combine all ingredients in a food processor and process until dough forms.

Roll out to a thickness of about 1/2 inch; cut into dog bone shapes with dog bone cutters or into sticks about three inches long and 3/4 inch wide.

Bake on an un-greased baking sheet for 25 minutes in a 350 oven. Cool on a rack, then store in an airtight container. Yield: approximately 20 biscuits.

Apple Cider Vinegar helps control and normalize weight, improves digestion assimilation, relieves arthritis stiffness, removes body toxins and helps to repel fleas.

Satin Balls - The Original Recipe

Satin Balls - The Original Recipe

The following recipe was sent to Wellpet by Diana Carreon, R.N.,C.
It quickly became one of the most requested posts on Wellpet.


10 pounds hamburger meat [the cheapest kind]
1 lg. box of Total cereal
1 lg. box oatmeal
1 jar of wheat germ
1 1/4 cup veg oil
1 1/4 cup of unsulfured molasses
10 raw eggs AND shells
10 envelopes of unflavored gelatin
pinch of salt

Mix all ingredients together, much like you would a meatloaf.

Divide into 10 quart freezer bags and freeze.

Thaw as needed and feed raw!


"I take a frozen pack to dogs' shows with me, kept on ice, and never have had any trouble with it spoiling, even in the heat of Texas summers..."

"All my dogs go crazy over this stuff...but you have to be careful, it will put weight on the dogs pretty fast if you feed enough....I feed a pack a day...half in am , half in pm."

"When I want to increase the weight on a dog, I feed more; so far I haven't got to the point where they won't eat anymore, and believe me, Satin has eaten a lot at one setting. It will put on the weight, make the coats soft and blue black (on black dogs at least, that's all I have)."

"The dogs stop all the itching and chewing at their coats/skin, their eyes get this bright look and the energy level goes out the roof (not that Belgians need any more energy)."

"The bitch that I got this recipe for is a picky eater, but when she in on the food (I long ago stopped trying to "bury" it the other food; they just hunt it down to eat first, and making a mess trying) she eats much better. It seems to whet her appetite."

DobieOwner If I get this one have a deal!! LOL

Darkevs Dog biscuits bake


Your own
All you need is : 8 ounces sausage-meat, 8 oz .plain wholemeal flour, 2-3 oz of stock or water (Can use a Knorr beef stock cube) and some garlic granules.

Put your oven to 180C/350f, mix the sausage-meat, flour and garlic granules thoroughly and bind with the stock or water to make a very stiff dough. Either roll out on a floured surface to ½ inch thickness and cut into bone shapes or any shape you want. A quicker way is just to roll into 1 ½ inch sausages and squeeze the end to make mini bones. Keep using all the trimmings until all the dough is used.

Put onto un-greased sheets and bake for 30-50 minutes (depending on size). Let them get good and hard but try not to burn them. Let them cool and serve them up as a treat. There is nothing in this recipe that makes it unfit for human consumption should any tricks be played .

Darkevs Here is an old shelter standby, for getting starving/malnourished/finicky dogs to eat, when nothing else seems to work.

Liver Soup

1 pound raw beef liver, sliced thin into 1/2" pieces
5 cups water
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1 pinch salt, optional

Par-freeze the liver to make slicing easier, then, slice thinly, and cut into 1/2" pieces. Place the water and salt in a pan and bring to a boil. Add liver and garlic, and reduce to a simmer. Simmer until the liver is grey-brown and cooked through. The mixture can be served, as is, or put in a blender and pureed to a gravy consistency. Serve a few spoonfuls of broth and liver over kibble to entice a malnourished dog to eat.

Ali's Healing Dog Biscuits

Ali's Healing Dog Biscuits

1 cup bran
1 cup whole-wheat flour
1/2 cup Rice flour
1/2 cup olive oil
1/2 cup sunflower seeds
1 cup oatmeal
1 egg
1 cup milk or water
1 teaspoon brewers yeast
1/2 teaspoon salt or kelp (this can be left out)
1 Comfrey leaf -- finely chopped.
(can add parsley etc.)

Mix everything together and form balls (or shapes!) with your hands.
Place on baking tray and flatten with a fork.
Bake slowly at 150 degrees C until hard - about 40 - 45 minutes.
I double the recipe and it makes heaps - about 2 trays.

Ali has joint problems and the comfrey is a wonderful herb to assist in healing. Comfrey (also called Boneset) has traditionally been used to treat wounds and reduce the inflammation associated with sprains and broken bones. I really love these healthy healing dog cookies!

Alfalfa Herb Biscuits for dogs

Alfalfa Herb Biscuits

3/4 cup flour
1 egg
1 Tablespoon Honey
1 teaspoon peanut butter
1/4 cup vegetable shortening
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup rolled oats
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 tsp of Alfalfa herb

Heat honey and peanut butter until runny (about 20 seconds in the microwave).
Mix ingredients together and drop by 1 teaspoonful onto cookie sheet.
Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 8 to 10 minutes.

The usual recommended dosage of an alfalfa supplement is 250mg to 1 gram daily, for short term use. For long term use, I would recommend taking it no more than 3 times a week. These cookies are great for different reasons if your dog is eating his stools this should stop it. They also help with digestion and possibly allergies.

All these additional forums and assorted bells and whistles do nothing but slow down the speed to load pages for us people still with dial up service. Maybe we're in the minority, I dunno..but it's NOT progress or a good thing to us.
Sounds like a topic the DT Presidential Candidates should be debating!!! Maybe guaranteed cable or DSL for every vote!

berkshire I can't put up the recipes, but after the food recall, Dr. Becky Remillard at Angell Animal Medical Center in Boston formulated some homemade diet recipes. They should be complete and balanced. It's a great resource for several reasons. First, it's a basic recipe that anyone can follow. Second, it can be used for sensitive tummies since it's only got a few ingredients. Third, it gives you an idea of what you can get from a boarded nutritionist after a diet consultation.

People food recipe


New York Cheesecake with caramelized Big Apple Topping
  • Prep Time: 25 min
  • Cook Time: 1 hour 40 min

Graham Cracker Crust:
  • 1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 6 tablespoons melted butter

Cheesecake Filling:
  • 1 1/2 pounds cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon peel
  • 1 teaspoon grated orange peel
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 4 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons heavy cream

Apple Topping:
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 stick unsalted butter
  • 2 cups peeled, cored, and thinly sliced Granny Smith apples (about 4 apples)

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

In a bowl, mix together the crumbs, sugar, and cinnamon. Add the butter and mix well. Using the back of a spoon, press evenly into the bottom and slightly up the sides of a 9-inch springform pan. Bake until golden, about 8 minutes. Remove from the oven and cool before filling.
In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese with the paddle attachment of an electric mixer, or with a large, heavy wooden spoon until creamy and smooth. Add the sugar a few tablespoons at a time, and when well incorporated, add the flour, lemon peel, orange peel, and vanilla extract. Add the eggs and heavy cream, beating on low speed just until combined, scraping down the sides of the bowl to incorporate all the ingredients.
Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake in the middle of the oven until set, but the center is still slightly soft (but not wobbly), about 55 minutes to 1 hour and 10 minutes. Remove from the oven, loosen the outer ring, and let cool in the pan on a wire rack. Refrigerate the cake, loosely covered, for 6 hours or overnight.

Remove the cake from the refrigerator and bring to room temperature.
To make the topping, in a heavy, medium saucepan, combine the 1/2 cup sugar and water, and bring to a boil. Lower the heat and cook, stirring occasionally, until the sugar is dissolved. Continue cooking until amber in color, 7 to 10 minutes, swirling the pan occasionally. Add the butter, stir, and cook over low heat until the butter is melted and evenly incorporated. Add the apples and stir to coat with the caramel. Cook, stirring, over medium heat until the apples are tender, about 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and cool before topping the cheesecake.

Top the cheesecake with the caramelized apple topping and serve.

momtoarmani Is anyone going to post people recipes on here as well?

I LOVE-LOVE-LOVE to cook, and wondered if anyone else cooks Thai food?
I am very fortunate to have an "adopted" mom who is 100% Thai. She and I grow a ton of thai vegetables and herbs to cook with.

If anyone is interested I'd be happy to post a couple recipes... but you'd have to have access to a thai market for some of the ingredients.
Before I do this, any takers?
