My dogs love their treats. Most dogs do, right? Buying them at the store
is nearly impossible when you’re trying to avoid anything that’s not
made in the U.S. so I came up with my own recipe for treats and the dogs

make veggie-fans of your kids, yet. They’re a great way to incorporate
more veggies into their diets, but in a more comforting yet
still-healthful way, perfect as an afternoon snack or even as a
scrumptious dinner side for the whole family to enjoy. And though you
