The homemade mix usually starts out with chicken or ham-bone broth, then I add pureed vegetables, any suitable food left overs from the fridge, liver or other organ meat (chunks or pureed), some oats, rice or chickpeas or lentils, and kelp and alfalfa powder for minerals and vitamins. It's usually a pretty a big hit with the dogs, even the fussy ones, provided there is enough broth and meat component.
It's always well below freezing here during the heart of the winter. I try to make the mix the consistency of thick soup or even canned dog food. We add a couple large scoops to the dry food and this way it doesn't freeze so quickly when we're dishing it out. The last dog fed has some frozen wet food to eat but they seem fine with that and still lick the bowls beyond clean. Sled dog owners feed a wet soup dog food as well although I am sure their ration is far more thought out than mine.
