A new cookbook from the Tulsa SPCA will benefit animals in need.
All proceeds from the sales of "Hearts + Bones: A Benefit Cookbook" will be used to care for the animals at the Tulsa SPCA shelter and to support the numerous programs benefitting the local community, such as the low-cost spay/neuter clinic.
The cookbooks are available for $15 and offer 350 tempting recipes from appetizers and beverages to soups and salads to cookies and candies.
A "This & That" chapter features a collection of pet treats and household cleaner recipes.
The book also has several pictures and "Happy Tails" of past and present Tulsa SPCA animals.
Recipes were submitted by employees, volunteers and supporters of the Tulsa SPCA. Some of the dishes include Outside-In Bacon Blue Cheeseburgers, Bon Ton Café Bread Pudding, Ms. Joan's Beef Brisket and Reese's Peanut Butter Cake.
The Tulsa SPCA has served the area for more than 99 years and is looking forward to celebrating its 100-year anniversary with the community in 2013.
To purchase a copy of "Hearts + Bones," visit the Tulsa SPCA website at tulsaworld.com/tspcacookbook to print an order form. Mail the form to Tulsa SPCA Cookbook, P.O. Box 4651, Tulsa OK 74159.

Here is a recipe from
“Hearts + Bones: A Benefit
Cookbook.” We heard that
one of the SPCA volunteers
made this cake for work and
it didn’t even last one hour.
1 box yellow cake mix

1 (14 ounce) jar caramel
6 Butterfinger candy bars,
1 (12 oz.) tub of Cool Whip
1. Prepare and bake cake as
directed on back of box.
2. Mix condensed milk and
caramel together; set aside.
Punch holes in cake and pour
this mixture through them.
3. Sprinkle four crushed candy
bars on top, then spread
your Cool Whip. Sprinkle
the remaining two crushed
bars on top of the Cool
