Hmmm.... I may try this recipe. I am definitely not using raisins though. I have heard too many horror stories about them.
I used to give Frank grapes. His great grandmother would peel them for him when he was a baby so he wouldn't choke. He loved them. Then we heard that dogs were having seizures from them. After that he never had another grape.
Now he gets carrots.
