Gooseberry Patch 101 Farmhouse Favorites Giveaway & Recipes

Gooseberry Patch has a new cookbook! I have taste tested recipes in their new 101 Farmhouse Favorites Cookbook. Here are some of our family favorites!
My favorite cookbook publisher is Gooseberry Patch. I have loved them since I held my first cookbook back when I was a teenager (over 20 years ago.) Feel free to search around for many of their recipes and cookbook reviews on my blog. Today I'm sharing with you one of their newest, 101 Farmhouse Favorites. 

This cookbook has 101 recipes with 101 photos for each recipe. Here are the chapters and a few of my favorites:

1-Bread of Day Breakfasts-Blueberry French Toast, Baked Shrimp Grits, Impossibly Easy BLT Pie

2-Garden-Fresh Soups & Salads-Tomato Garbanzo Salad, Summer in a Bowl Salad, Cabbage Tomato Slaw, Fresh Kale Salad

3-Family Dinner Favorites-Just Perfect Sloppy Joes, Cayenne Fried Chicken, Shrimp Creole, Lighter Than Air Potato Rolls, Bacon Florentine Fettuccine

4-Blue-Ribbon Desserts-Candy Apple Cheesecake, Blue Goose Pie, Coconut Cream Pie, Peanut Butter Apple Crisp, Peanut Butter Ice Cream, Hucklebucks

5-Classic Country Canning-Garlic Dill Pickles, Old Time Corncob Jelly, Amish  Hot Pepper Rings, Quick Picnic Pickles, Aunt Ruth's Dilly Beans, Mom's Peach Butter

Shrimp Creole pg. 55

Ingredients
1/3 c. shortening
1/4 c. all purpose flour
2 lbs uncooked large shrimp, peeled & cleaned
1 c. hot water
2 8oz can tomato sauce
1/2 c. green onions, chopped
4 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 c. fresh parsley, chopped
1/4 c. green pepper, chopped
1 slice lemon
2 T. sugar
1 1/2 t. salt
1/2 t. dried thyme
1/8 t. red pepper flakes
2 bay leaves
cooked rice

Directions
Melt shortening in a large stockpot over medium heat. Whisk in flour; cook until it starts to brown. Add remaining ingredients except cooked rice. Cover and simmer for 20 minutes. Discard bay leaves. Spoon over cooked rice. Serves 4-6.

Kitchen Notes- I try and follow direction as written but I had to make a few changes to suit my family. I used red, orange & yellow peppers instead of green. I also added in 1 lb of chicken cut into pieces because some do not like shrimp. FYI- when you do the shortening (I used butter) and flour mixture at the beginning, that is called a Roux. We loved this recipe and will make it again.


Blue Goose Pie p. 71

Ingredients
2c. fresh gooseberries
2 1/2 c. fresh blueberries
3/4 c. sugar
1/4 t. salt
1/2 t. cinnamon
1/4 c. cornstarch
2 9 inch pie crust
1 T. butter, sliced

Directions
In a bowl, mix together berries, sugar, salt, cinnamon and cornstarch; toss to coast berries well. Line a 9" pie plate with one pie crust. Pour berry mixture into crust; dot with butter. Cover with top crust; seal and vent crust. Bake pie at 450 degrees for 50 minutes, or until crust is golden and filling is bubbly. Serves 8.

Kitchen Notes- You can use out shapes into your crust, weave it or leave it whole.

  2. I would love to win this cookbook! I have subscribed to your newsletter. One of our favorite family recipes is slow cooker chicken-n-gravy. Just place boneless, skinless chicken breasts in the slow cooker. Sprinkle with a pkg of dry onion soup mix and cover with a can of cream soup (your preference on the flavor but we usually use mushroom). Cook 3-4 hrs on high or 6-8 on low. Serve over cooked rice or noodles when done.

  12. I already subscribe to your newsletter, but I'm not sure if this is international - if not, just disregard my entry. I do love American recipes though so I hope I can play!

    Our favorite family food is actually pancakes, so maybe that's where I get my love of American food from ;)

  48. Thank you for the opportunity to subscribe to your Newsletter! I've enjoyed your You Tube Video about Gooseberry Patch (and congratulations on having been published in 101 Soups, Salads & Sandwiches and in Fresh from the Farmstand!) in which you remind us Moms to make sure our children, boys included, learn to cook in the kitchen while they are still living at home! Both my boys (ages 22 and 15) are quite adept in the kitchen so I have no worries! By the way, I am also published in Fresh from the Farmstand - my devotion to Gooseberry Patch was published on the inside front cover! I was so pleased!!! I am an avid Gooseberry Patch fan and collector of almost 100 of their books. I cook from them all the time. I especially love JoAnn & Vickie's Gooseberry Patch app as I need to have Gooseberry Patch near at all times!!! I love their "In the Kitchen with Gooseberry Patch" videos for great recipes and how-to's. Thank you for the opportunity to subscribe to your Newsletter! I love your site and blog pages - they are beautiful!
