If you're a fan of cookbooks with photographs of every recipes, then Gooseberry Patch's 101 Recipes series is the series for you. Each recipe has a beautiful full-color photo of the mouth-watering dish. Not only can you see the finished product, you can almost taste it.
One of the definitions of hearty is heartfelt. And, Gooseberry Patch's 101 Hearty Recipes is full of heartfelt recipes. The recipes are simple and comforting and I could imagine any number of these dishes on my own kitchen table. Although this cookbook isn't necessarily designated as a "fall" cookbooks, there is a feeling of warmth that comes from the recipes that makes me think of my favorite fall dishes.
There are several dishes that are perfect for football season and tailgating: Deluxe Cocktail Sausages, Nacho Chicken Dip, and the Tailgate Sandwich Ring. Autumn is when I step away from the grill and warm up the kitchen with dishes such as Brown Sugar Barbecue Sandwiches, Bowties & Blush, and Farmhouse Chicken Bake. Don't worry - this really is a seasonless cookbook full of salads, beverages, and desserts. Do you really need to look at the calendar to know you're craving Shoo Fly Pie, Frosted Cherry Drops, or Brown Sugar Puddin' Pies? I didn't think so.
I made my sample recipe choices based on the ingredients that were readily available in my kitchen. That's the way I cook on a regular basis. But, these were three great choices:

I would love to get this cookbook! I have noticed how often you refer to it and make their recipes, that my curiosity is peaked...... I do not have tons of cookbooks (in fact, I just gave some oldies away...) but I do have my favorite ones by my bed, on the coffee table, on the kitchen counter, and in a stack on the mantle.... One more? :) Enjoy your weekend!ReplyDelete
I signed up with Networked Blogs to follow (I hope it worked...it said it did). ;)ReplyDelete
Yum, everything looks so tasty! I'm going to try those muffins as pecan pie is a favorite with us...and so are muffins! :D
