[VIDEO] Our Food Network Audition Tape

Martha Stewart, Guy Fieri and Rachel Ray better make some room at the table because there are some new master chefs in town.  Do we know how to “cook?” No. Do we know how to “follow instructions?”  No.  But we sure know how to have a good time. Check out our first attempt to make some homemade dog treats for Eko.  The recipe was so simple, even I couldn’t mess it up.


Our adventure in the kitchen was also a bucket list item (#38 – Make homemade treats), and it rounded out a pretty solid week of trying new things.  Eko loves the treats, so this most definitely will not be our last foray into the culinary world.  Who knows, maybe after a bit more practice Eko and I can land prime time cooking show?  A dog can dream!

  1. That was so cute – can you pass on the recipe for the peanut butter cookie dog treats (although it looked a lot like human peanut butter cookie ingredients)?

    • Thanks – the ingredients are very similar to human treats, just minus the sugar.

      1/2 cup water
      1/2 cup olive oil
      2 tsp vanilla
      2 eggs
      1/2 cup cornmeal
      1/2 cup oats
      2 cups flour
      3 tbs peanut butter

      Mix the wet ingredients in one bowl, the dry ingredients in another and then combine. Roll out the dough, cut it, and bake at 400 for 20 minutes. So easy that even I could do it!

  2. Will:
    You looked like you were channeling Officer Riggs (Mel Gibson) in Leathal Weapon 3. (Mel ate dog treats to help him quit smoking.) It came in handy when he had to befriend not only a vicious guard dog, but a vicious Rene Russo.
    FYI, noted cooking expert and ex-WWII OSS operative, Julia Child would not have a beer while the treats baked, but a box of white wine. Cooking style points count.
