The Toy of Cooking Spring Recipes

SPRING Recipes

featured chef: @the_little_dog_crew

Maybe your pooch tiptoes around the rain puddles, maybe they roll around joyously in the mud, but for dogs everywhere, springtime means new flowers to sniff, longer days to play outside, and fresh flavors to savor and snarf.

Kiss Me I’m Arf-ish

This light, bright, minty kiss of a treat bursts with breath-freshening flavors from the herb garden to sweeten up St. Patrick’s Day smooches (whether you’re Irish, Arf-ish, or something else). Sometimes, it’s easy being green.

  • 3 - 4 sprigs of fresh parsley (finely chopped)
  • 2 - 3 basil leaves (finely chopped)
  • 2 - 3 mint leaves (finely chopped)
  • 4 Tbsp Plain Yogurt

Puzzle Toys
  1. Harvest your herb garden
  2. (or raid your fridge for leftover snips like we did.)
  3. Mix 4 tablespoon of plain yogurt with 1 tablespoon of coconut oil in a small bowl.
  4. Fill molds with yogurt-coconut mixture and put in the freezer for about 30 minutes.
  5. Fill the Toppl with raw meat blend, then add the frozen molds.
  6. Top with slices of dehydrated pears.
  7. Serve with a Guinness (for you, obvs.)

Pooch Boost!

Fresh parsley is packed with Vitamin A, Vitamin C, folic acid, and antioxidants—plus it can calm itchiness and freshen up those chompers.

Easter Bunny Basket

Would dogs eat the Easter Bunny? Of course not. Instead, we swapped in cage-free non-Easter rabbits and eggs from quails (not holiday hares) in this meaty treaty dog dream of an Easter basket.

Ingredients & Materials
  • 2 Quail eggs* or one hard-boiled chicken egg
  • 2 small carrots
  • 1 rabbit ear
  • 1/4 C frozen rabbit patties
  • 1/4 C pumpkin puree
  • Large or small Tux®


Puzzle Toys
  1. Place the eggs in Tux and fill the rest with rabbit meat
  2. Add the rabbit ears, pumpkin puree and carrots.
  3. Put in the freezer for an hour or two, and serve for Easter brunch.

Wellness Woof!

Tux is made for the toughest chewers—so when this Easter Bunny Basket is fully devoured, there’s still something safe to grind on. That’s good, because chewing can relieve boredom, neutralize anxiety, and keep jaws strong.

Roll-in-the-Grass Rumbl

Springtime’s purest doggy joy is when there’s finally a fresh bed of green grass to roll around in. Rolling around this duck and apple-packed Rumbl scratches the same itch: it’s easy, rolly, and quick, for a shot of impromptu joy.

A few intrepid canine culinary explorers posted on Instagram, just for fun—and when we stumbled onto their accounts, this cookbook was born. Now, dogs are hungry for more. Post your creation and tag @WestPawUS.
