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…
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
