  13. I vote for the Down Home Taco casserole. I Love Gooseberry books; I've lost count of how many I own. I even submitted my own recipe, and unbelievably it's on pg 54 of "Homestyle in a Hurry" that was released in January of this year. Sooooo, no, that one is not my favorite. I have to say my favorite Gooseberry book is "Quick & Easy 2". Loooove the smothered steak recipe on pg 143 in that book. Please enter me in our give-a way. :) Teresa

(duh) Beef and Potato sounds pretty classic to me! : ) My fav Gooseberry book is titled "Welcome Home for the Holidays" It is a coffee table book every winter and folks love to look at it! But, I must browse every one, when I see them in the stores...

  50. THe only GB cookbook I can find is Coming Home for Christmas. I know I have more so must be my daughter "borrowed" then & hasn't returned them yet lol. So right now I can't tell you my favorite because I don't have time to look through all the over 200 titles to figure out what one it is (it's one of those "I can picture it but can't put my finger on it" things lol)

    ReplyDelete
