Moon the Kitchen Cat Loves SHEBA® Cat Food

Moon Loves SHEBA Cat Food My cat, Moon, is a kitchen cat. This is how he got his nickname:

1. He runs to the kitchen when he hears me in there even if he was in the middle of a deep sleep.

2. Every time I eat, he expects to eat too and will pester me with non-stop meowing, pawing at me with close-up, intense staring.

3. He’s tall enough to stand with his paws perched on the edge of the kitchen table where he is eye-to-eye with whatever I’m eating.

4. He’s been known to steal food off my unattended plate!

5. When I’m on a cooking marathon, even if it lasts all day, he is my constant company. I repay him by letting him taste test, when appropriate.

6. When I go into the refrigerator he likes to look inside too. I wonder what he’s thinking when he does that? Maybe “How come you have hands and all I have are these paws that are no good at opening SHEBA® cat food cans?”

Moon Looks in Refrigerator

Hearing all this you might find it hard to believe that Moon is a finicky cat. He expects the very best and I want to give it to him. That is why I had a hard time finding a premium cat food that he liked and would eat on a steady basis, one that tasted good and was made with real meat. My search is over because he not only likes, but loves SHEBA® Entrées for Cats featuring three delicious lines: Cuts in Gravy, Pates, and GRAVY DESIRES™ Entrees, each featuring recipes made from carefully selected, quality ingredients.

Now, every time I eat, I pop open one of the SHEBA® pate recipes with chicken, turkey or salmon so Moon can eat at the same time, and I can get some peace. Not only does it bring me some quiet time but it brings me peace of mind in knowing I am feeding him high quality cat food where meat, poultry or fish is the first ingredient.

All SHEBA® Pates are made with meat first recipes – using real beef, poultry, or seafood as the first ingredient. I also love that all SHEBA® recipes are formulated without corn, wheat, soy, or gluten, and never have artificial flavors or preservatives. The important things I look for when buying his food. I don’t want to let this handsome face down!

SHEBA® Cat Food Review

Moon the Kitchen Cat Loves Sheba Moon the Kitchen Cat was recently asked to try SHEBA® Entrées for Cats featuring three delicious lines: Cuts in Gravy, Patés, and Gravy Desires™ entrées, each featuring recipes made from carefully selected, quality ingredients.

Moon taste tested SHEBA® Patés in chicken and salmon flavors. He loved them both! He started things off with the sniff test followed by the lick test, followed closely by greedy gobbling like he hadn’t eaten in a week and never tasted anything so delectable in all his life. Quite possibly, he hasn’t.

When he was all done he jumped up on the kitchen chair where the SHEBA® cans were sitting and gave me a stare down that said open up another one of these cans for me. Now. When that didn’t work he sat down in the middle of the kitchen and meowed his head off for more.

Moon & Sheba Cat Food I’m happy about that because all SHEBA® recipes are formulated without grains, corn, gluten, fillers or artificial flavors. All the things I look for when shopping for his food. It’s been hard to find a brand he consistently likes with high quality ingredients that I like. Looking at his healthy size you would never guess that he’s a picky eater or that he’s ever missed a meal. Don’t worry, he hasn’t.

No matter how hungry he is if he doesn’t like the food he won’t take more than one bite of it, leaving me with a cranky cat and wasted money. That food goes in the garbage and a new can gets opened. Sometimes I open three different ones in a night. Yes, he’s spoiled rotten and I wouldn’t have it any other way. Nothing is too good for the love of my life. All SHEBA® Entrées are held to a high standard ensuring a premium meal that your cat is guaranteed to love, or you’ll receive your money back.

Since SHEBA® cat food came into our lives this isn’t a problem anymore and the stress of picking out food in the pet store is over. I’m stocking up on SHEBA® from here on out!

Moon gets to eat irresistibly delicious food that he absolutely loves and I have peace of mind from knowing that I’m feeding him premium cat food with real meat as the first ingredient.

SHEBA® cat food comes highly recommended from the both of us.

White Chocolate Peppermint Biscotti

Festive biscotti laced with the cool, zinginess of peppermint and balanced with the sweetness of white chocolate, perfect for Christmas morning and worthy of gracing your holiday cookie platter.

Biscotti are dry, crunchy cookies destined for dunking into coffee, tea or dessert wine. They were traditionally made without fat and twice baked to produce a hard cookie. The cookie dough is baked into a long loaf the first time, cooled, then sliced and baked a second time to make them nice and crunchy….

Her cookbook is “full of classic, crowd-pleasing American desserts, all made with good fresh ingredients.” According to Kathleen, “All the recipes in this book should take less time to make than it would to go to a store to buy a commercially prepared baked good, so they’re perfect for the busy holiday season when baked goodies are in high demand.”

Tate's Bake Shop Cookbook Giveaway!

The elves at Tate’s Bake Shop generously sent me a cookbook and a gift pack of cookies along with an extra to give away to one of you too! The cookies were happily devoured by my family who loved them. And the cookbook is nothing short of charming with recipes like Peanut Butter Bread, Apple Cream Cheese Tart, Hummingbird Cake, Squash Rolls, Creme de Menthe Pie, White Chocolate Brownies and Toffee Pecan Cookies…see? It’s hard to stop! I want to make everything!

I couldn’t resist the combination of peanut butter and chocolate in the flourless peanut butter chocolate chunk cookie recipe. One of my childhood favorites. They are one of the quickest, easiest cookies to make and will melt in your mouth whether hot from the oven or cooled.

Flourless Peanut Butter Chocolate Chunk Cookies
Flourless Peanut Butter Chocolate Chunk Cookies
(adapted from Tate’s Bake Shop)
1 + 1/4 cups peanut butter, smooth or chunky
3/4 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup semisweet mini chocolate chips or 1 bittersweet bar chopped fine

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease two cookie sheets or line with silpat.

2. In a large bowl mix the peanut butter, sugar, egg, baking soda and vanilla extract until smooth and creamy. Stir in chocolate.

3. Form each cookie into a ball using a two tablespoon-sized ice cream scoop or your moistened hands. You can leave them as a ball to cook or press them down slightly with a fork making a ‘criss cross’ in them after putting them on the baking sheet.

4. Bake 12 to 15 minutes depending on the size of the cookie or until they are puffed on top and golden on the bottom. Cool them on the cookie sheets for a few minutes and then transfer them to wire racks to cool completely.
