Gooseberry Patch Cookbook giveaway and recipes

101 Hearty Recipes
 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!

Here are the chapters in this book & a few of the recipes:


*Fun & Filling: Santa Fe Sandwiches, Tailgate Sandwich Ring, Ranch Chicken Pizza, Berry Patch Fondue, Cornbread Salad (YUM)
*Speedy & Satisfying: Sassy Squash, Fancy Crescent Chicken, Salmon with Balsamic Sauce (YUM), Cajun Oven Fries, Tangy Summer Slaw (YUM), Schinken Nudeln (German ham & potatoes)
*Casual & Comforting: Bouillabaisse Gumbo, Spanish-Style Round Steak, Meatless Stuffed Peppers, Bratwurst & Potato Salad, White Lasagna, Deep-Dish Sausage Pizza (YUM)

*Baked & Buttery: Zucchini Brownies, Chocolate Rolls, Almond Amaretto Bread Pudding, Caramel-Filled Chocolate Cookies, Crunchy Oat & Fruit Crisp, Mocha-Oatmeal Cake, Marshmallow Graham Custard (YUM), Pull-Apart Bacon Bread, Peaches & Cream Dessert, Shoo Fly Pie

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.

One of my favorite hearty meals is chicken and dumplings, too. Mine are made with a drop biscuit dough dropped by spoonfuls into simmering chicken broth. Cook 10 minutes uncovered, then 10 minutes covered. Mmmmm. Fluffy dumplings and gravy-style broth.

I make a pork chop dish my whole family goes gaga for. I marinate the pork chops then sear them in cast iron. I make a sauce of white wine, broth, dijon mustard, scallions, LOTS of garlic, whole vidalia onion,butter, salt and pepper. Then I let the pork chops cook in the sauce on a low flame for about 40 minutes to an hour. They are sooooooo yummy. WE usually do it with crusty bread to dip into the sauce. Great with rice or buttered noodles.
