Gooseberry Patch Cookbook Recipes with Simple Shortcuts

Hi Friends! I'm super excited to bring you another Gooseberry Patch Cookbook review and giveaway! This cookbook is super special to me because one of my recipes is in the book! I actually forgot that I was in this book. Imagine my surprise when I was going through it to pick recipes to review and ran across my name! Whhoohooo! Thank you, Gooseberry Patch. It is fun to have my recipes in your beautiful cookbooks.
My recipe in this book is the famous Cookies & Cream Cake Balls. This recipe has been in the top 10 hottest links on my blog since I posted it. Click the link above to go to the recipe.

The BLT Pizza (photo at top) was by far our favorite item that we made. It for sure will go into my regular cooking schedule.

BLT Pizza
8 oz tube refrigerated crescent rolls
3/4 c. mayonnaise
1 T. Dijon mustard
9 slices bacon, crisply cooked and crumbled
8 oz pkg. shredded Cheddar cheese
2 green onions, finely chopped
2-3 c. lettuce, shredded
3 roma tomatoes, seeded and chopped

Roll out crescent rolls onto a lightly grease baking sheet, pinching seams to seal. Bake at 375 degrees for 12-15 minutes, until lightly golden. Remove from oven; cool. In a small bowl, combine mayonnaise and mustard. Spread over crescent rolls Top with remaining ingredients. Cut into squares. Makes 10-12 servings. 
We must have been in a bacon mood when going through this Simple Shortcut cookbook! I also made Ranch & Bacon Pasta Salad. It is another keeper in my recipe box!

Ranch & Bacon Pasta Salad
8 oz pkg. rotini pasta, uncooked
1 1/2 c. mayonnaise
1 T. ranch salad dressing mix
1 T. bacon bits (sorry we used 4 cooked and crumbled real bacon!!!)
3 green onions, chopped

Cook pasta according to package directions; drain and rinse with cold water. In a large bowl, mix remaining ingredients until well blended. Fold in pasta. Cover and chill before serving. Serves 4.
