Gooseberry Patch 101 Farmhouse Favorites
{Giveaway & Recipes}

I have a new Gooseberry Patch Review & Giveaway. Today's newest release, 101 Farmhouse Favorites is from Gooseberry Patches 101 cookbook photo series. I have been looking forward to receiving this copy from Gooseberry Patch ever since I was selected to review it.

Country Classics and Farmhouse Cooking is my all time favorite food. 
This tasty cookbook is packed with over 100 tried and true home style favorites.    

Each recipe has a yummy full color photo (my favorite part). Farmhouse Favorites reminds us of memories at Grandma's house sitting on the porch and sipping lemonade. Her meals were always made with love and those treasured recipes were passed down from one generation to the next. Those are the mouth-watering, tried & true classics where Gooseberry Patch got their inspiration for this cookbook.

There are 5 different chapters included in this cookbook: Break of Day Breakfasts, Garden-Fresh Soups & Salads, Family Dinner Favorites, Blue-Ribbon Desserts and Classic Country Canning.
A few of my favorite recipes are, Blueberry French Toast, Ham & Cheese Biscuits, Shrimp & Grits, Cheesy Corn Chowder, Slow Cooker Chicken & Dumpling, Pulled Pork Barbecue, Homemade Ranch Dressing and a soon to try recipe for Jalapeno Jelly.

The bright colors of this Tortellini Salad immediately grabbed my attention from the Garden-Fresh Soups & Salad chapter. This yummy salad is packed full of all my favorite garden vegetables.

Utilizing store
bought refrigerated tortellini and Italian dressing make this salad a snap to prepare. This one is definitely the one to make for your next summer barbecue.  My daughter and I had this salad polished off in 2 days.

The Root Beer Float Cake from the Blue Ribbon Desserts chapter was the next one on my list. If you love Root Beer than you will love this cake. Especially the yummy icing that drips down the side. Next time I will double the icing recipe, because I felt it needed just a bit more. We all loved this cake and gobbled it right up.  

Included at the end of the Classic Country Canning Chapter are these cute little Homespun Canning Labels pictured above.  I can't wait to use these for holidays gifts throughout the year.

 This contest is now closed. The winner of the Gooseberry Patch 101 Farmhouse Favorites Cookbook is comment #43 Cindy Brinkley

I grew up in a house where we had the same meals all the time. My dad back then was a hard core meat and potatoes guy and meals were made to please him. Now I am an adult with a child of my own and I am really trying hard to create my own meals that my daughter will love. I dont want her to look back and realize that we had the same menu on repeat all the time. I dont want to rely on the quick and easy instant meals. I want to actually cook meals she will look back on and want to recreate as an adult. So my entry isnt my favorite meal but desire to have the tools to create my own favorite meals. I just need to learn some recipes first :)

Country cooking was what I am so used to so to narrow it down, will be hard. What I wouldn't do to taste my Grandma's beef and noodles and baked mac & cheese and end it with one of her delish pies again. She passed away this past fall. Although I make her recipes for this all the time, just to have hers again would be great.

I have always LOVED stew, roasted with potatoes, carrots, celery, pearl onions and button mushrooms.
