If you're an animal lover, you've no doubt shared morsels of "people" food with your furry and feathered friends. Feeding table scraps to animals can even be a good way to prevent food waste. But before you give in to those imploring eyes, it's important to consider safety.
Our four-legged friends may be happy to eat whatever food falls on the floor, but we know they deserve something a little better! Have you ever made homemade dog biscuits or pet treats? You may be perfectly happy baking them in the oven, but if not, you could always try this Pet Treat Maker from Holstein. It looks like a panini press or sandwich maker, but it presses out dog biscuits instead. (And yes, they're bone- and- paw-shaped!)
The past few weeks have been pretty rough for me and my cat. We both seem to have an insatiable appetite, wanting another snack or bite to eat just minutes after the last. What's going on? Is it the cold winter? Is it the gray skies? Or is it an expanded stomach that has got too accustomed to gingerbread and fudge? I had to find out.
The other day I came home to the somewhat hilarious but also disturbing evidence that my cat had been investigating the kitchen counters and stovetop. Do you have cats? How do you prevent them from hanging out on kitchen surfaces?
It's hot and muggy outside, and you know how good it feels to throw back a beer or two with friends. Well, Man's Best Friend wants to get in on the action, too. Say hello to Bowser beer, a non-alcoholic, non-carbonated "beer" for dogs!
Kittens are adorable, but we aren't about to forget about man's (and woman's!) best friend. Is it a coincidence that many of our most favorite Kitchen Tours have featured a tail-wagging pup or two? We think not. Pour yourself another cup of coffee in this post-holiday work week and take a peek at this puppy parade.
It's the first day back from a long weekend. There are a pile of emails that need answering and several meetings that will shortly need attending. It's hard to believe a three-day weekend could be over that fast. Let us ease your workday transition with some adorable cats and kittens that require your attention.
Every holiday season we ask a few friends to join us here at The Kitchn for a series of guest posts. The topics range from favorite holiday recipes to family memories and traditions. Today's guest: Germaine Leece of Some Home Truths, an always thoughtful and inspiring blog. (We've peeked inside her own home kitchen in Sydney, too!) Welcome Germaine!
All families have their own Christmas traditions, some left over from childhood and carried through to the next generation and some that may have only recently appeared but feel just as important.
For my children, a new tradition began three years ago when my son came home from preschool with a bag full of 'Reindeer Food'.
