Gooseberry Patch's "Grilling and Campfire Cooking": Review and Giveaway


 
Do you smell that? Someone must be grilling in the neighborhood. Isn't that a wonderful smell, the smell of food cooking on hot coals? It doesn't even matter what's cooking - just so some of it ends up on my plate. Gooseberry Patch has responded to the call of the grill and has devoted a cookbook to grilling and campfire cooking. It's the perfect cookbook for summer.
 
 


As you can see from the table of contents above, this cookbook has got your grilling needs covered whether you're cooking in your backyard or at a campsite. Of course, the meat lovers are covered from chicken, beef, pork, and even seafood. I chose to feature one of the easy chicken recipes. But, there are also lots of recipes for you fruit and veggie lovers out there: Balsamic Grilled Tomatoes, Grilled Portabella Blues, Mini Parmesan Corn Cobs, Grilled Peaches, and Yummy Banana Boats.
 
If you prefer your outdoor cooking around a campfire, you can make one of the many soups and stews such as Chicken Booyah and New Mexico Green Chile Stew. Side dishes, salads, and sauces/rub recipes are plentiful, too. And, what meal would be complete without dessert? Chocolate Burritos, Pie Iron Apple Pies, and Strawberry Gratin should satisfy your sweet cravings.
 
With Father's Day just around the corner, I couldn't help but think what a great gift this cookbook would make for the special man in your life. Combine this cookbook with some grilling utensils and an oven mitt and you've got one satisfied man on your hands. Summer if finally here!
