I love Gooseberry Patch Cookbook! I've never made a recipe that didn't turn out yummy! I was selected to host a preview party for the cookbook, Slow Cookers, Casseroles & Skillets which is due to be released June 15th!
I decided to try a recipe from each of the three categories: Savory Slow Cookers, Casseroles & Skillets. I chose Italian Sausages & Peppers, Monkey Taters and Southern Fried Apples.
The Italian Sausages & Peppers(click to get recipe) were excellent! Instead of green peppers per ingredient listing, (my girls do not like cooked g.peppers) I used colorful red, orange and yellow peppers which made the dish sweet. I've never made a dish like this but knew with 5 ingredients I couldn't go wrong making it. It truly is a great recipe for a party. I doubled the recipe. Super easy and tasty!
Monkey Taters(click for recipe) in the Cozy Casseroles chapter. They turned out great! I've made many version of this dish but I am convinced that the tater tots are the best potato choice!
Southern Fried Apples(click for recipe). I say this because my daughters never order these in country restaurants so I never make them at home. I think it is a texture thing. This recipe was in the Speedy Skillets chapter. It smelled so delish cooking! Instead of the optional whipped cream I served it over vanilla ice cream! I figured if someone didn't like the apples then they could just have plain ice cream. It was a huge hit by all!
I served dinner with fresh veggies (especially for the low carb friends because potatoes are a no-no) and fresh salsa.
Thanks to Gooseberry Patch for sending me a cookbook to review and one for a giveaway. It was a tasty good time! All the pictures and words here are of my own tasty words and opinions.
