Gooseberry Patch Cookbook Giveaway

Oh yes, here it is! Before you can get it from the stores, I have a copy to give away to one lucky reader! Introducing Gooseberry Patch’s newest cookbook, “Garfield… Recipes with Cattitude!”

Garfield Recipes With Cattitude
We are definitely Garfield-lovers around here, and we have an appreciation for his love of… fine dining. Okay, so he’s not quite a 5-star restaurant connoisseur, but he knows what he likes, and this cookbook does it so very well!

There’s a chapter dedicated to breakfasts, with yummy treats like this Strawberry French Toast, the Lazy Cat Pancake, and the Sunny-Side Up Breakfast Egg Pizza.

Need an appetizer? Try these Hot & Sticky Buffalo Wings (recipe coming soon) with Cool & Creamy Green Onion Dip. I’ll admit, the wings were too spicy for me, but Farmer Doc thought they were great!

There are two (count ‘em, two!) whole chapters of dinners! The first chapter, “Lotsa Lasagna, Pasta & Pizza” has treats like this Bow-Tie Lasagna, Cheesy Lasagna Rolls, and Ham & Mushroom Tortellini.

I made mine without the mushrooms and now I call it Tortellini with Ham and Peas. (Did I mention there are no less than eight pizza recipes?)

Dinner chapter #2 is “It’s Dinner Time… Now!” This features tasty treats like these Super Saucy Meatballs

… along with Crispy Chicken Nuggets, Yummy Chicken Quesadillas, BBQ Pork Ribs, and this Best Baked Macaroni & Cheese. By the way, this mac & cheese goes wonderfully with those saucy meatballs!

And because Garfield isn’t done until he’s had dessert, there’s a whole chapter for that, too! I started with these Peppermint Snow Ball Cookies (recipe coming soon) and was definitely not disappointed.

What kind of a cookbook written by a cat would leave out our four-legged family members? Don’t worry, there’s a recipe for Homemade Cat Treats.

And, just in case you forgot about Garfield’s puppy friend Odie, there’s also a recipe for Homemade Dog Biscuits (coming soon). These were definitely Sadie-approved!

Did I mention that there is tons of Garfield artwork sprinkled throughout this cookbook? Yep, there he is!

Gooseberry Patch Cookbook Giveaway

I am always looking for good slow cooker recipes, and Gooseberry Patch always delivers! In fact, one of their new cookbooks for 2013, Slow Cooking All Year ‘Round, recently made it into my kitchen. Better yet, I have one copy to give away to one lucky reader!Slow Cooking All Year Round
I love that this cookbook is broken down by seasons. There are the hearty stews you think of for winter time, like the Hearty Meatball Stew.hearty slow-cooker meatball stew

Or the Sweet-and-Sour Beef.slow-cooker sweet and sour beef
The Winter section has a recipe for Hot Lemonade. I so very wish that I had this recipe about a month ago when I was losing my voice. I would have gone through two batches of this on my own…

I love my slow cooker in the autumn and winter, but don’t use it much in the spring and summer. This cookbook certainly has the remedy for that – there’s a whole section dedicated to Spring and one for Summer!

The Summer section has lighter recipes like Summer Vegetable Fettuccini, Stuffed Green Peppers, Last-Resort Chicken Legs, and plenty of ways to fix baked beans (a summer barbecue staple around here). The Spring section has recipes for things like Tea-Room Broccoli-Cheese Soup.broccoli cheese soup
And Top o’ the Morning Irish Oats.slow-cooker steel-cut oatmeal
But the Autumn section is where I really get excited. There is a huge selection of dips like Buffalo Chicken Dip, Pleasing Pizza Dip, Spinach-Artichoke Dip, and Cheesy Sausage Dip. Seriously. I’m going to have to have a party every weekend just so I can make all these dips! Where can you go wrong with recipes like Rockin’ Ribs and Bacon-Wrapped Chicken? And Pumpkin and Black Bean Chili? I think I’m in heaven!

And if all that wasn’t good enough… I’m going to give one of these babies away! Use the Rafflecopter widget below to enter. (Click on “A Rafflecopter Giveaway” if you can’t see the widget.) The giveaway runs until midnight on Wednesday, January 16. I’ll announce the winner here and by email on Thursday morning, so be sure to keep an eye out!
