 Yum yum! Time for another Gooseberry Patch Cookbook Giveaway and tasty recipes for you to try.

The newest soon-to-be released cookbook is 101 Hearty Recipes. As you just read there are 101 recipes but what is most important is that EACH recipe has a photo.  I'm a huge fan of this fairly new line from Gooseberry Patch because I'm such a visual person I love seeing the mouth-watering photos which inspire me to cook, cook and cook more!

I've already made quite a few of these recipes and they are yummy!  Here are two of them for today with more to come.
Salmon with Balsamic Sauce (click to print)


Ingredients
4 Salmon fillets
1/2 t. salt
1/4 t. pepper
2 t. oil
1/4 c. water
1/4 c. balsamic vinegar
4 1/2 t. lemon juice
4 t. brown sugar, packed

Directions

Sprinkle both sides of fillets with salt and pepper. In a skillet, cook salmon in oil over medium heat for 10-15 min. until fish flakes easily with a fork. Meanwhile, combine water, vinegar, lemon juice and brown sugar in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil, cook until liquid is reduced to about 1/3 cup. Serve over salmon. Serves 4.


Kitchen Note: I thought I had salmon at home but didn't so I used tilapia instead. The cook time is much less. The sauce is wonderful with tilapia, too. This is a very quick and easy recipe. 
Tangy Summer Slaw (click to print)


Ingredients
1 head red cabbage, shredded
1 head green cabbage, shredded
1 carrot, shredded
1 onion, finely chipped
1 green pepper, chopped
16-oz bottle red wine vinegar & oil salad dredding
1/4 c. olive oil
1/4 c. sugar
1 T. Dijon mustard
1 t. caraway seed
salt & pepper to taste


Directions
Toss together vegetables in a large serving bowl; set aside. Combine remaining ingredients; pour over vegetables. Refrigerate until ready to serve. Toss before serving. Makes 8-10 servings. 


Kitchen Note: To make this even quicker purchase a large cole slaw in the salad aisle instead of chopping the green and read cabbage and the carrot. So quick and very tasty. I loved taking this to an outdoor picnic because their isn't any dairy products to spoil.
