Mommy's Kitchen - Recipes From my Texas Kitchen: Better Brownies & Lemonade Chicken {Gooseberry Patch Rush Hour Recipes}

Better Brownies & Lemonade Chicken {Gooseberry Patch Rush Hour Recipes}

It's that time again for another tasty Early Bird Review from my friends at Gooseberry Patch. This months cookbook review is for "Rush Hour Recipes". This cookbook is for moms on the go and for cooks that don't have a whole lot of time to get dinner on the table. Rush Hour Recipes has over 230 budget- friendly meals your entire family will love.

I'm a busy mom just like you so this cookbook was made for moms like us. Whether you're a working mom, stay at home, or just someone who's always on the go. We all struggle with the same thing, getting a quick tasty meal on the table. Sometimes the same old rotation meals can get a bit boring.

Most of the dishes in Rush Hour recipes can be prepared in 30 minutes or less. Plus they don't use any fancy schmancy ingredients. Just familiar pantry staples that everyone has on hand. Dinner time just got so much easier my friends.

My first recipe to test was for Lemonade Chicken on page 90. This recipe comes from Kathy Werner of Minneola, FL. Kathy says that everyone loves this chicken dish. Her girls are all grown up now, but this was one of the first recipes she gave them.

This chicken dish is sweet and tangy all rolled into one. It gets it's lemon flavor from lemonade concentrate and it's sweetness from brown sugar and ketchup. We really enjoyed this dish. Next time I want to cut my chicken pieces smaller so it is more like the lemon chicken you find in Chinese restaurants.

The next recipe of choice was a dessert of course. I was intrigued by the Better than Brownies from page 215. Goodness how can you go wrong with a chocolate cake mix, cook and serve chocolate pudding,chocolate chips and nuts!!! That is a deadly combination my friends.

When the brownies were all cooked up it was more like a brownie cake to me. Moist and delicious the chocolate chips and nuts really took this dessert over the top. My family polished off these chocolaty brownies in 2 days.


Rush Hour Recipes has 6 delicious chapters to choose from. Slow Cookers and Make a Meal Sides was my absolute two favorite chapters. I have so many pages bookmarked for future use. Here is a sample of a few that I have saved.

Mexican Manicotti
Spanish Rice & Beef
Chicken on a Stick
Easy Peasy Pork Chops
Swedish Meatballs
Sausage Bean Gumbo
Dinner Theater Dessert & More

I don't want to forget to mention all the beautiful quotes and tips each recipe page has. I think that is what makes all the Gooseberry Patch Cookbooks so special. There's always a new tip or trick that I learn from every cookbook.


Still not sure about Rush Hour Recipes? Click on the video above and take a virtual tour of GP latest cookbook with Vickie and Jo Ann. The deep dish skillet pizza featured in the video looks really good and so easy to make. The Better Than Brownie recipe is also mentioned in the video. I guess it was a favorite of theirs too.

My biggest dilema about dinner time is have enough ideas & confidence. When my husband and I get home from work he is starving and I don't want to disappoint with dinner so my nerves get the best of me and I end up not enjoying my time in the kitchen. But..I keep trying & he is really supportive :)

My biggest dilemma (and not sure why I haven't caught on yet) is making sure I start dinner in time. I hate having dinner past 6pm. A lot of times we've been eating at 7pm and I really don't like that.

My biggest dilemma is coming in after working in food service all day and finding new fast recipes for my own family. I want to make something new and not the same old thing. It just needs to be quick and delicious.

My biggest dinner challenge is finding meals that will still turn out okay if I have to stop and feed the baby mid recipe (because I now know you CAN boil potatoes textureless) AND that will still taste good reheated when the hubs gets home from work. Maybe these recipes from Gooseberry would be so speedy I could finish before the baby needed me :)

The Better Baker said... #

Great review! I think my biggest challenge is thinking ahead...thawing meat from the freezer...making sure I have all the ingredients, etc. for what I THINK I'm going to make. I get so busy and rush out the door to work and am not prepared for dinner, then I need to make something different.

I have a hard time coming up with side dishes without doing the same old tired roasted potatoes. I can usually come up with a main dish but don't always have the time or energy for sides.

Tricia50 said... #

I haven't tried any of the recipes yet, but the Lemonade Chicken looks wonderful.
I have trouble coming up w/main dishes revolving around meat (my husband's request -- no vegetarian or turkey-based meals) on a limited budget.
I would really like to win a copy of this book.
Thanks very much.

My dilemma...i get burned out on the same recipes, so i like to try new things...trouble is...only about 20% of those new recipes are worth repeating. Time can be an issue sometimes too...and im trying to go with a heart healthy meal plan (which i dont think the rest of the family particularly cares for) We live an hour from town, so i try to keep my pantry well stocked for making lots of different meals, so a cookbook with simple ingredients will be great! Thanks :)

Finding a new recipe at the same time as having those particular ingredients on hand!

I would have to say that my biggest dilemma is that I spend so much time searching for new recipes to try that by weeks end, I have nothing figured out and always have to go back to my tried and true recipe plan...which gets boring!

I Love Gooseberry Patch. My biggest dinner challenge is finding creative ways to cook on a small budget. OH - And making that turn into something that all 5 members of my family will enjoy!

My biggest dilemma is getting out of a rut and always making the same things for dinner. I also want to cook very healthy for my family but feel sometimes like it's a lot to do finding new recipes and shopping time!

I usually have a hard time getting a vegetable in there without just opening up a can.

My biggest dilemma, (now that I have a job working out of the home again)is recipes that are quick or have no more than 5 ingredients. So this cookbook sounds like the one I need. Am gonna so make the Better Than Brownies. Thanks for entering me in the giveaway.
