Individual Ingredients for Individual Dogs

A Place For Pet Parents Who Love to Cook!

Welcome To My Kitchen

If you love your pet and you love to cook, you have come to the right place! My mission is to provide pet parents with the information and tools they need to feed their pets the best food possible.
Here’s what you will find on my site:
  1. Nutriton Notes – I evaluate and discuss food ingredients and pet foods, empowering you to make more informed decisions. I love home cooking though I know it’s not the only good choice out there. There’s a lot of good on the shelf and I can help you sort through the labels!
  2. Cooking Essentials – After four years of cooking for my dogs as well as others, I have streamlined the process and will help you be more efficient in your home kitchen.
  3. Recipes – Easy-to-follow, delicious recipes you can share with your dog. Yup! There are some that you can eat too (with just a few modifications of course!)
Grab your apron and notebook and let’s get cooking together!

Dog Mom & Foodie

Allison Teegardin

My passion for high quality, delicious food combined with my attention to nutritional detail make for the perfect recipe. 

I cook for my dogs with the same principles as I do for myself using fresh whole food ingredients. I source local when available and use meats and eggs from animals raised humanely.  And I believe that’s what you want in your dog’s bowl too. 

My days in the kitchen began before I could even reach the counter. Shadowing my mother at every meal preparation, she showed me how delicious it is when we live to eat.

Once I was able to reach the counter, I was unstoppable in the kitchen. My enthusiasm for creating recipes has led me to win over cooking contest  judges such as Good Housekeeping, Bobby Flay, Wolfgang Puck and Rocco DiSpirito.  

As Julia Child said, “People who love to eat are the best people.” I’d like to add that, “People who love to feed their dogs healthy food are the best people.”

They are my reason for everything. I know you know exactly what I mean.
