The Honest Kitchen, based out of San Diego, is a natural pet food company. They're a company that loves what they do and take pride in preparing fresh, healthy products for your best friend.

"We believe our pets deserve the same quality food that we'd choose for ourselves. That's why all our recipes are made with 100% human-grade ingredients that you'd recognize from your own kitchen.

Our recipes are prepared with care and uncompromising attention to detail, so you can serve them with confidence."

The other great thing about this company is that a percentage of their profits go towards animal-welfare causes. As if that wasn't enough, they have a pet friendly office and are joined by up to seven co-dogs a day.

For all the Dogsters who are foodies, The Honest Kitchen has been nice enough to share one of their healthy and fun to make recipes. You and your pal can spend a fall afternoon whipping up a batch of yummy brownies. Although I would advise that the two legged member be in control of the oven.

Healthy Autumn Brownies
These rich but delectable brownie-style treats can be made with any one of our dehydrated raw foods for dogs, and make use of some of the fall's healthiest vegetables and fruits. Squash may be substituted for sweet potatoes if desired.

Ingredients
2 Eggs
Cup of Cooked, Mashed Sweet Potato
Cup of cooked Parsnips, finely diced
3/4 Cup of Diced Ham
Cup Grated Gruyere Cheese
Cup of Dried Cranberries
4 Tbsp Applesauce
2 cups of Honest Kitchen Dehydrated Dog Food
1 Cups Warm Meat Broth (low sodium, if commercial)
1 Small Pinch fresh or Dried Rosemary (optional)

What To Do:
Hydrate the food using the warm meat broth.

Crack the eggs into a bowl and whisk lightly. Mix in the applesauce, ham and cheese.

Mix the sweet potato or squash into the hydrated food, along with the parsnips & cranberries.

Add the egg mix to the Sweet Potato mix and combine thoroughly.

Spread in a thin layer onto a well greased baking sheet.
Grate a little extra cheese on top if desired and cook at 300 F for about 60 minutes or until the top is slightly dried and slightly crispy.

Cool thoroughly and cut into squares to serve.
For firmer treats, divide the mix into teaspoon sized drops and space evenly on a baking sheet, flattening gently with the spoon. Cook as above.

*Oatmeal and a little ground meat can be used as a substitute for the THK products.

The Honest Kitchen has generously donated some of their homemade dog treats to give away. Besides being all natural they have great names; Nuzzles, Pecks, Ice Pups, and Smooches.

We're going to be giving one of each kind away, a total of four prizes. To enter use one of the treat names in a funny sentence, it doesn't have to make sense. As an example, "I give my dog Smooches." Leave your comment, in the comment section, and I will choose the winners on Thursday, October 9th based on the funniest or silliest answers.
