Pizza, Roasts, & Stews – Surprise, It’s Home Cooking For Your Dog

  I went to a fundraiser for a local animal shelter, Adopt-A-Dog, and met a woman, Christine Filardi, who was doing cooking demonstrations.  Okay, so no big deal you must be thinking.  Ordinarily, yes, but this was for dogs.  She showed us a Friday Playdate Pizza and Easy As Potpie recipes that looked totally like people food.  She had written a cookbook called, Home Cooking for…
