DIY Eat: Bentley’s Blend
A chicken and rice dinner for your dog by Haylie Duff
Haylie Duff’s little dog Chicken is a big fan of Haylie’s cooking and so are we! Turns out the actress and singer is also darn talented in the kitchen, whipping up delish recipes for people and dogs alike. Bentley’s Blend, one of Haylie’s recipes for dogs, is a big hit with her four-legged friends. She sweetly shared the recipe with us so you can delight your pack with it, too!
"I adopted Chicken a year ago and I love to spoil her rotten. If you giggled at her name, let me explain.
I had just ended a long relationship and vowed to stay single for a year, no matter who came along. Of course, the universe decided to set a great guy right in my lap. I met him around the same time I adopted Chicken. When he met her, he suggested naming her Chicken Burrito because she did in fact look like a chicken burrito. I thought, “no way am I letting some guy name my dog. If we don’t work out I’ll be reminded of him every day.” I really liked him but decided it was best for me to stick to my original single gal plan. Shortly after, the guy and I went our separate ways. I named her Kenzie and that was that.Well, the universe has a funny sense of humour because a year later I’m in the happiest relationship with the previously mentioned guy. I no longer refer to him as some guy…and as for Kenzie, she has gone back to her original name too. Chicken."—Haylie Duff
