101 Hearty Recipes- Review & Giveaway

Dear Reader-
I am really excited to share with you this next batch of recipes from the brand new 101 Hearty Recipes that Gooseberry Patch gave me to peruse and review as one of their Early Bird reviewers…
Yeah, it’s a tough job ;) But somebody’s gotta do it…
You might recall that I asked your help in choosing from this delightful little book when trying to choose what to make.
Truth be told, I review A LOT of GP cookbooks, and ya know I don’t like to play favorites, but I have to tell you, this one had me torn on what to feature. I love the 101 series because of all of the pictures, and I gots to tell you that this particular one had LOTS of pictures that were a callin’ me and my homestyle kitchen’s name.
You guys–as always– came through for me! 125 of you voted and as a result you helped me pick four fantastic recipes that I whipped up this weekend along with two others that I just HAD to make… just sayin’
First up, in the Fun & Filling section you guys chose Nacho Chicken Dip or as we kid ’round here “Not Yo Chicken Dip”…
It is so good we want it all to ourselves. This yummy treat will be perfect for pitch-ins, get-togethers and parties. It is super quick to make and very yummy and filling.
Also from the Fun & Filling section, Miss Add and I couldn’t pass up these fun “Sandwich Pops” or Sandwich on a Stick as the cookbook likes to call them. They are so versatile for those picky eaters and can be customized with all kinds of fun seasonal flavors.
Now before we go any further my family would like to thank you for choosing Farmhouse Chicken Bake from Speedy & Satisfying.
This dish is AMAZING! We love it. You MUST try this recipe. (Coming this week)
Dude, Miss Add ate peas and so did her Daddy… just sayin’
Also from the Speedy & Satisfying section, Fancy Crescent Chicken is another Home Run. I am sooo going to wow some folks with this at some point. YUMMM-O!
In the Casual & Comforting section you guys voted for a mushroom lovers dream, White Lasagna. This yummy dish is chock full of delicious ‘shrooms.
And last, but CERTAINLY not least, this Raspberry Upside Down Cake from the Baked & Buttery section blows any version of pineapple upside down cake out of the water.
This cake’s bright flavors literally pop in your mouth… and it has almonds and almond extract in it and we all know how I LOVE those flavors ;)
Now that I have given you a sneak peek into what is in store for you later this week… I am so excited to offer you a chance to win this great cookbook BEFORE you can buy it in stores thanks to Gooseberry Patch!
You are going to have LOTS of ways to enter to win. You don’t have to use them all, just do the ones you want. Just make sure you leave a separate comment for each entry.

    Honestly, the only thing I'd like is a way to go through the cookbook project chronologically – I know the index is there, but sometimes I don't remember if I've read it or not. I know I can go through the past posts, but that's kind of time consuming.

    Content wise – don't change a thing. I love your style.

    Of all the farmwives I would love to hang with….God that is hard…i’d love to spend time with all of them, what a fun group. If I’d have to choose, I’d choose you, dear Cris. You were the one who responded to me awhile ago when i was soooooo confused about this blogging and what it was all about. You made me feel so welcomed. I choose you picachu! lol

  • http://www.facebook.com/carpediem5790 Marie Pitts

    It is so hard to pick a GBP book, i want them all. I don’t have any :(. I was told i won one on another blog back in May 2011, but it never arrived and my recent emails to the blogger have not been returned, though at the beginning of July she assured me it was on the way and I’d have Christmas in July. But, disappointingly, nothing. I’d run and out and buy one or two, or three or lol but the home budget is small (recently handicapped and have not been able to teach, but hanging in) Your blog, Gooseberry Patch etc have kept me feeling a part of things. I know its not like living next door, but its the best I can do right now.  Thank you for being there for me. love Marie

    Oh, wait a minute….my last comment, about not having any Gooseberry Patch Book, not quite true….i DO have the freebie downloads from Circle of Friends!  Mac and Cheese, Chocolate Chip Cookies, Slow Cooker, Spreads and Dips, Meatloaf–love them and use them!
