Gooseberry Patch Big Book of Home Cooking Cookbook debut and giveaway info

Gooseberry Patch Big Book of Home Cooking: Favorite Family Recipes, Tips & Ideas for Delicious Comforting Food at its Best
 If you are a frequent reader here, you know that I LOVE Gooseberry Patch Cookbooks. I love them so much that I'm a Early Cookbook Reviewer for their Company! Those sweet ladies send me cookbooks to review, blog and even giveaway copies!

101 Hearty Recipes (101 Cookbook Collection)
As you know I have a giveaway going on right now, 101 Hearty Recipes(click to enter) and it ends on 8/26. I have shared several recipes from this book and will post more soon. I've made at least 5 things in this book over the past month. It isn't too late to enter. Hope over and do it before 8/27.
Soooo on to the new book, Big Book of Home Cooking which to say the least is BIG! I thought big would be 200 pages but no this book really is BIG. It has over 350 pages, hard back and beautiful, mouth-watering photos.

I don't know about you but whenever I get a new Gooseberry Patch Cookbook I always sit down in a comfy chair armed with a package of post-it note tabs. I start tabbing items that I must try first. This book, as you can see by the tabs, is so full of recipes I had to restrain myself from marking every other page. I had to remove some of the tabs to narrow down what I planned on cooking first.

Here are a few of the recipes that I will be trying out, sharing pictures, the recipes as well as offering a copy of this BIG book as a giveaway.

*Fried Okra Salad (OH MY GOSH)
*Russian Beef Borscht (come on cold weather...bring it on!)
*Easy Cheesy Enchiladas
*Vickie's Gazpacho Dip (Yes the Gooseberry Patch Vickie)
*Healthy Hummus
*Spiced Chocolate Coffee

It was NOT easy to narrow down which recipes to make first. The ones picked are perfect for my up and coming meal plans and events. There are plenty more to come.

What is your favorite Gooseberry Patch Cookbook or recipe?If you are NOT familiar with Gooseberry Patch, visit them HERE, and find a book or a recipe that is one you want to cook.

Leave a comment below and you will be qualified for 5 bonus entries into this giveaway when I post it on Saturday September 3rd, 2011. This book isn't for sale until Sept. 20th and is being published by Oxmoor House. Click HERE to see the Amazon info.

I'm an early Gooseberry Patch Reviewer. A cookbook was provided to me in exchange for my honest opinion.

Comfort and Joy is my christmas season bible. One of the recipes featured in this book that I make all year around are the puffy marshmellow cutouts..YUMMY!

Amy Allen said...

WOW to pick one would be incredibly hard, because I love them all. The one cookbook I go to the most is 5 ingredients or less.

Sandy said...

I too read the cookbooks like novels, marking the pages of recipes I want to try (tho' I don't know why I bother, I usually end up wanting to try just about all!)

Emily said...

Wow, what a book. This has to be the king of all cookbooks!
