Giveaway! 101 Farmhouse Favorites from Gooseberry Patch

Congratulations to Maryleigh7 for winning the latest giveaway.

Are you ready for another giveaway? Of course you are. This time around it’s for one of the latest Gooseberry Patch cookbooks.

101farmhouse

I marked a lot of recipes in this cookbook to try but the one I made the other day was one that I made because I was in a hurry. I love recipes that you can basically throw together with stuff that’s already in your pantry. Plus any recipe that starts out with the word “Mommy’s” in it has to be good right?

Mommy’s Pasta FagioliIMG_5014

3/4 c. onion, diced

3/4 c. celery, diced

2 T. butter

8 c. chicken broth

28 oz. can tomato puree

1/2 t. dried thyme

1 t. dried rosemary

salt and pepper to taste

2 15oz cans cannellini beans, drained and rinsed

2 c. ditalini pasta, cooked (I used gluten free pasta)

In a stockpot over medium heat, sauté onion and celery in butter until onion is translucent. Add broth, tomato puree and seasonings. Simmer over low heat for one hour. Add beans and pasta to soup; heat through. Ladle into bowls to serve.

Serves 8

I also made these Chocolate Raspberry Brownies. They were good…REAL good!

You can find the recipe for these on the guest post I did on Gooseberry Patches blog here.

Shall we take a look inside?

CONTENTS:

Break of Day Breakfasts

Garden-Fresh Soups & Salads

Family Dinner Favorites

Blue-Ribbon Desserts

Classic Country Canning

There are still so many recipes I want to try, for instance:

Sweet Apple Butter Muffins

Skillet Chicken with Vegetables & Herbs

Cinnamon Gingersnaps and so many more.

  1. Ha! I'm first??? That never happens! Lol! I love ALL their books. My favorite, however, was the The Old Fashioned Country Christmas. But alas, I gave it away this Christmas to my mom.

    Have a wonderful weekend, friend!
