Let's Give Away A Gooseberry Patch Cookbook!







This is an awesome cookbook I have already made tons of recipes - all of which have been hits in this house!

When Gooseberry Patch asked me if I would like to try a cookbook and then give one away it was pretty much a no brainer for me!  Some of my favorite go-to recipes are from them and this one intrigued me as I hope to be a little more organized at meal time during planting this year {let me live my fantasy for a while please}!!

After spending way to much time looking thru the book, drooling on the pics and postie noting the recipes I liked I picked three that I thought would make a great meal - borrowed a couple of crockpots from my Mom, fired them up one morning, my house smelled amazing all day and after supper everyone in my house was full and the crockpots were empty!








In all honesty I had a fourth crockpot going that day with a dessert from the cookbook but I am pretty sure it was operator error that caused it to not work out so edible but I am definitely trying it again!

So this book was fun to look through with all the pics-my food doesn't normally turn out like the pretty pics but anyway!  The only thing I wish this book would of addressed is the size of crockpot that the recipe used - I realize there are tons of crockpots but just as a gauge this would of been nice.  I put the cheesy corn casserole in more of an upright crockpot and it could of used a little more time than if I would of put it in more of a shallow oval shaped one, which I suspect by the cooking time is what the recipe writer must have used.


SO THE FUN PART!


Win yourself a copy!


Leave a comment with how many crockpots you own and your email and you will be entered!

The contest will run for 10 days, in which time I will be posting 3 of my favorite recipes from this book - so on Satuday April 26 I will pick a winner at random!

GOOD LUCK!!!



Gooseberry Patch did provide me with a cookbook, but all photos, reviews, and opinions are my own!

    I have my nice, go-to crock pot that gets used about once a week. I believe we have my husband's bachelor crock pot sitting around here somewhere..... Where? Couldn't tell ya. I also have a small one for dips or if I just want to do a side or one chicken breast. THEN, there's my trio! I haven't used it yet... I really need to.

    I think you need to get a trio! They usually go on sale around the holidays. You can cook three things at once and only have to use one plug-in. It's kind of awkward and long.. and the crocks are a bit smaller.. but think of all the sides you could do :)

  2. What a great giveaway!!! I have four crockpots/slow cookers and use them all the time. My husband has even started experimenting with them. We use lots of wild game when we cook and we're always looking for new recipes. I work full time and hubby is a full time farmer. Crockpots have made our lives so much easier and we don't spend our entire evening in the kitchen though we do everything in the kitchen such as entertaining, bill paying, talking, catching up, planning, and I could go on forever. Love your blog and look forward to more of your recipes.

  3. I have 4 crockpots! I have the little one for hot dips for things like the Superbowl, I also have a standard one, one that has three different size inserts and I just bought a 6.5 programmable one with a timer.... Excessive?!? I've heard people mention 'now that crockpot season is over..', not at our house!! I use them all year round, especially in the spring and summer when we're getting in the house later because the weather is so nice!!

  8. I am so glad crockpots have become popular again. Don't know why I didn't use my original one all those years when I did everything possible to avoid turning on the oven in hot weather. When I put that avocado green Rival on a garage sale recently, my daughter snapped it up for herself. My other daughter seems to have taken permanent possession of my smaller crockpot which works well for transporting food to her frequent potlucks at work. I think I may still have at least two in my possession as well as a trio style which I haven't decided whether to gift or keep for myself. Dasras50@aol.com

  9. I have 2 crockpots and love it when I remember to put something in it to cook while I am at work. Nothing better than having dinner waiting for you when you get home after a long day at work.

  11. I am ashamed to admit that I only have one small crockpot. But I blame that on the fact that I don't have a good crock pot cookbook. I do have my eye on a big oval crockpot with a travel lid & all I would need is this cookbook! mjcorrill@hotmail.com

  15. I have one crockpot with 3 different sized liners, that's really handy. Also I have one of the server type with the 3 small pots, like some others have mentioned. I had finally gotten tired of dips, etc. getting cool and having to rewarm them during family get-togethers. In the past I've had a number of different sized crockpots, but as they had to be retired I decided to get the one with the different sized liners since it takes a lot less room to store. the_riveras@itv-3.com

  25. I love the idea of knowing that dinner will be ready at the end of the day, and there are no worries about what shall I fix and do I have the time to get it ready before everyone has snacked too much to be hungry.

    I have crock pots that range from itty bitty to jumbo. I use mine for every day life to party's and holidays. I enjoy using mine for making sauces that I can to melting chocolate for my candy making. Every where you look in my kitchen, dining room and basement you will find crock pots. And I am always looking for more. My husband says I have an addiction to crock pots...but I guess I could be addicted to worse things :) hope.parker72@gmail.com
