Let’s Celebrate. We’ve Turned TWO!

We can hardly wait for fresh food from the blooming garden, but we’re ready to make wholesome, tasty birthday treats all the same! We’ve prepped the Honest Kitchen’s human-grade pet food into a cheesy recipe chock full of savory chunked ham – using a kitchen stocked with handy items from The Pampered Chef! You’ll find the free recipe, as well as an $8 coupon for The Honest Kitchen, at the end of this post!


UPDATE! WE have FIVE wonderful winners!

  • The 10 lb. box of The Honest Kitchen dog food (which makes 43 lbs.) goes to Marlene Wagner.
  • The Pampered Chef Kitchen Basket from Audra Bentley goes to Monica Blizzard.
  • The Bark4Green On The Go Dog Treats® 50 pack box was won by Linda Mosher and donated back to the rescue dogs in our organization!
  • The Lupine Collar and Leash set from Oliver’s Way Pet Sitting goes to Lisa Drury.
  • The Definitely Dishy hand-crafted, reversible apron goes to Mike Merges. It will no doubt be equally loved by his wife, Laurie St. Onge-Merges, who also entered, wasn’t drawn, but won by association!

Thank you to all of our entrants!

Our final count for cash donations amounts to $715.
Pampered Chef Parties raised an additional $124.58 from Audra’s commission and Dog House Adoptions show ($64.21), plus the show hosted by Pam Place ($60.37) in honor of our dogs.

This brings us to a grand total of $839.58! Thank you to everybody who helped keep us going for the next couple of months!

The Honest Kitchen Zeal dog foodWin a 10 pound box of Zeal dog food from The Honest Kitchen! This box rehydrates to 43 lbs. of whole fishy food goodness. It’s humane grade dog food that’s certifiably antibiotic, hormone, and GMO free!

Zeal™ is a grain-free dog food made with wild, line-caught white fish and produce like sweet potatoes, pumpkin and parsley. Zeal is a natural human grade dog food that’s created especially for adult dogs with certain dietary restrictions. One of The Honest Kitchen’s most popular dog foods, Zeal is higher in protein and low in fat and carbohydrates. Because Zeal is a limited ingredient diet, it’s especially suited for pups who do better without certain pet food ingredients, like poultry, flax and white potatoes.

6 Ways to Feed

  • A is for All Alone Feed Honest Kitchen food by itself as a complete meal (except preference, which you mix with meat). Just add water and it’s ready to go!
  • B is for Base–mix Use as a base for your own home-prepared ingredients. Lots of people love to make their pets’ food. Honest Kitchen recipes are an excellent starting point (with balanced calcium: phosphorus ratios) that you can mix with your own meat and other goodies. (Here are some of our suggestions!)
  • C is for Complementary Mix with kibble as a convenient, healthy whole food topping that provides more phyto-nutrients than cooked diets. Because our foods are gently dehydrated, they retain much more of the natural nutrition that conventional pet food production methods. If you aren’t ready to make the switch to 100% fresh or dehydrated food, try our recipes as toppers, so your pet can still enjoy some of the benefits of a whole food diet!
  • D is for Defrosting error Use as a stand-in when you forget to thaw your raw! Some of our customers feed raw food most of the time. But sometimes, schedules can be disrupted or plain old absent-mindedness can set in. Our foods are great to keep on hand as a stand-in for just such occasions!
  • E is for Emergencies Dehydrated foods are compact to store – you can keep our products in your emergency preparedness kit for up to 12 months and they’ll be easy to take if you ever have to leave home in a hurry.
  • F is for Fun outdoors Take on your travels, backpacking and camping – our foods are lightweight, and quick & easy to prepare for a tasty meal on the road. Each dry-measured cup of our food makes a whole pound of fresh food when rehydrated.
