New “Biskins”!

What are “Biskins”? Biskins are an even better version of dog biscuits. My humans have been making homemade dog biscuits for many years. They do also buy organic store brought dog biscuits but NOTHING compare to homemade! They are so good they deserve their own name: Biskins.

If you scroll down to my post from 2013: HUMANS ARE OKAY (IF THEY PROVIDE TREATS) you will see the recipe for the dog biscuits (Schnauzer Snacks) they have made for years.

Recently my humans started making a NEW Biskins – “Chicken ‘n Cheese Biscuits” and they are incredibly delicious. My female human said I could share the recipe with my readers. It is an old recipe, she clipped it from a magazine in 2010 (she has been holding out on her schnauzers for years, giving them the same old homemade dog Biskins).

From the Taste for Life Test Kitchens, November 2010:

Chicken ‘n Cheese Biscuits 

1 c. low-sodium chicken broth

1 c. rolled oats

1/4 c. vegetable oil

3/4 c. cornmeal

1/2 c. milk

1 c. shredded cheddar cheese

1 egg, beaten

3 c. whole-wheat flour

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Bring chicken broth to boil.
  2. In a large bowl, combine rolled oats, oil, and broth. Let stand 10 minutes.
  3. Thoroughly stir in cornmeal, milk, cheese, and egg. Add flour, 1 cup at a time, until mixture forms a stiff dough.
  4. Knead dough on a lightly floured surface, mixing in additional flour if necessary. When dough is smooth, roll it to 1/2 inch thickness. Cut out bone shaped treats (not my humans do not do this, they break up the kneaded dough into 4 to 8 section and roll them into a tube. Then they slice small pieces off to make little mini sausage shaped Biskins).
  5. Place them one inch apart on parchment covered cookie sheets.
  6. Bake 40 minutes, or until golden brown. Cool completely before serving or packaging (I don’t need them cooled completely, just enough so I have no mouth burns – I go crazy with the smell of fresh Biskins in the oven!!!)

What Do I Have to Do to Get Attention Around Here?

My female human has been very busy lately – working her pay-the-bills healthcare job and working on quilting projects – and I am feeling neglected.

I had no option but to ask my male human to put me up on her ironing/crafting table so she would notice me. This better work or I will have to resort to more intense measures….

Can I get some love like you are giving all that fabric?!?!?

Schnauzer Obsession

This photo is only a small glimpse into the world of “Schnauzer Obsession” the humans-that-I-manage live in:

2016-03-28_222910721_7af58_ios.jpgThey have a large collection of schnauzer figurines and other schnauzer paraphernalia. I worry about their obsession with schnauzers, but I know that I am a live schnauzer (as opposed to a figurine) and I benefit from their obsession!
