for thanksgiving i made cranberry grappa jelly which i unfortunately don’t have a photo of. it turned out really nice. i had a lot of leftover cranberry mash that i did not want to throw out. so i investigated cranberries & if they were safe for dogs. turns out they are very good for them! so i used them in the mashed potato munchie cookies that i made for doris. here is the recipe


4 Cups mashed potatoes (i used roasted sweet potatoes & regular & smashed them up)
2 Eggs, beaten
2 cups mashed cranberries
1 Cup flour
3 Tablespoons bacon fat or any oil (dogs love bacon)

Preheat the oven to 350F.
In a bowl, add ingredients and mix well.
Pinch off pieces of dough and roll them between your hands to make 1 inch balls.
Place on a well oiled cookie sheet and bake for 20 minutes.

these are not crispy but doris seems to like them.

then it was time to make cookies for the colonel & i

the new bon appetit arrived so i decided on double chocolate peppermint crunch cookies except i did not have the candy part. only the extract. it has espresso & tons of melted chocolate. i added walnuts & chocolate chips-all milk chocolate rather than the suggested semi or dark.

GREAT magazine. i’m glad i have a subscription. took me long enough.
