|Sedona's thread '21 Easy Steps to Balance...." or some such is exactly what you are looking for! I'll bump it up for you. Basically a few very talented people on the raw feeding forum put the nutrient numbers into a spreadsheet so you know what the dog needs. Then use a site such as nutritiondata.com to make up recipes. When you join you can put your own dog's nutritional goals into My Tracking so when you put that recipe in MT you get 0-+999% for each nutrient.
And start today, just substitute a little cooked turkey for some kibble. It is fine to substitute up to 25% of something like that, won't mess up the diet a bit. If you have a recipe that is almost right but you aren't ready to go 100% cooked then you can feed 50/50 cooked and kibble without worrying about your dog keeling over from a lack of selenium or something. Kidding, a well thought out diet is not going to cause any problem!
If you want an actual cookbook the see dogaware.com's page on homecooking. Mary Straus has a number of cookbooks listed with reviews.
