Gooseberry Patch Cookbook - Giveaway



Book - Fresh from the Farmstand - Cookbook

Publisher - Gooseberry Patch

Pages - 220, Comb bound


Ever spend time browsing at your local farmer's market? There are all kinds of garden-fresh fruits and vegetables.  Sometimes it can be overwhelming and you might wonder what you can make with such a variety of produce.

Fresh from the Farmstand will give you plenty of ideas for using those fresh garden items!  Inside you'll find 6 sections of recipes. Here is a small sampling:

 - Freshly Gathered Breakfasts

     Peach Oatmeal Pancakes, and Whole-Grain Berry Coffee Cake look delightful!

- Market - Basket Soups and Breads

     Country Chicken and Corn Soup, and Garden Minestrone are hearty comfort foods.

- Garden - Fresh Sides and Salads

     Dilled New Potato Salad, and Sweet Dill Refrigerator Pickles look fun to try.

- Farmstand Feasts

     Hearty Vegetable Pot Pie, and Pasta Primavera Even Kids Like - are a great way to include fresh produce in the family's diet.

- Summer's Best Appetizers

      Lemon Iced Tea, and Island Chiller are cool and sweet drink ideas.

- Berry Best Desserts

     Royal Strawberry Shortcake, and Refreshing Raspberry Cake sound like wonderful afternoon treats.

Each recipe in this collection is sent in by a Gooseberry Patch reader. This creates a fun variety of great cooking ideas.  The book is packed with little quotes, ideas and pretty drawings to encourage the home cook.

One of my favorite recipes in this book is on page 204. It is for "Never-Fail Pie Crust" and makes 12 single crusts!  It looks easy to follow and is carefully explained.  I can just imagine making homemade chicken pot pies, apple pies and lemon meringue pies with this recipe.

How about my favorite summer time dinner instead? I love to have a meal of fresh from the field corn-on-the-cob dripping with butter, sliced fresh tomatoes still warm from the sun and zucchini cakes (a veggie form of crab cakes). I am drooling just from the anticipation of meals to come!

Thank you for such a delightful give-a-way! Gooseberry Patch has been around a long time and I have always loved their recipes and whimsical artwork in their books. My favorite summertime treat is sliced strawberries on top of chunks of fresh pound cake with fresh whipped cream...then add a sprinkle of cinnamon. Yum!

Blessings!

Tuna Salad! I add fresh berries, or melon, or oranges - any fruit that is available in the summer. Same with vegetables. I add carrots, cukes, green beans any available fresh vegetable. It changes the whole salad.

I just love raspberries! I look forward to them all year, and since they grow in abundance in my garden, I indulge all summer.
