Cookbook review and a GIVEAWAY!

Hello to all! Did you have a good Christmas? It was great here...my sister and her family visited from Pennsylvania. The cousins had so much fun together. I will talk about all that on another post, but for now I want to post my Early Bird Review of Gooseberry Patch's upcoming cookbook, Homestyle in a Hurry!
Leave a comment on the end of this post to enter my giveaway! I will pick one random comment to win a new copy of this yet-to-be-released cookbook. I will choose a winner in one week...January 4, 2001. Gooseberry Patch does not compensate me for my reviews, besides the complementary cookbook I receive and the one that I give away on my blog. They want my honest opinions, so here goes!

I made three recipes from this book...the first was Sourdough Chicken Casserole. Here's what you'll need:
You will need: 4 C. sourdough bread, cubed; 1/4 C. plus 2 T. butter, melted and divided; 1/3 C. grated parmesan cheese; 2 T. fresh parsley, chopped; 2 sweet onions, sliced; 8-oz. pkg. sliced mushrooms; 1 C. white wine or buttermilk; 10-3/4 oz. can cream of mushroom soup; 1/2 C. roasted red peppers, chopped; 2-1/2 C. cooked chicken, shredded; 1/2 t. salt; and 1/4 t. pepper.

In a large bowl, toss together bread cubes, 1/4 C. butter, cheese and parsley; set aside.
In a large skillet over medium-high heat, saute onions in remaining butter for 15 minutes, or until dark golden.

Add mushrooms and saute for 5 minutes. 
 Add remaining ingredients.
 Stirring constantly, cook an additional 5 minutes, or until hot and bubbly.
 Pour into a lightly greased 9x9 baking pan (I used 11x7);
Top with bread cube mixture.
 Bake, uncovered, at 400 degrees for 15 minutes, or until golden. Makes 4 servings.
RECIPE REVIEW: The casserole was good, but not necessarily one I will make again. The baking time was short but I thought the prep time wasn't really "homestyle in a hurry." The topping was the best part; really, really good with the Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese.

The second recipe I tried was Sunny Lemon Blossoms
For the cakes, You will need: 1 box yellow cake mix; 3.4-oz. pkg. instant lemon pudding mix; 4 eggs, beaten; and 3/4 C. oil.
Combine all ingredients in a large bowl.
Spray mini muffin cups with non-stick vegetable spray; fill cups 1/2 full with batter.
Bake at 350 degrees for 12 minutes. Cool in muffin tin on wire rack 10 minutes; remove cupcakes from tin and cool completely.
For the glaze, You will need: 4 C. powdered sugar; 1/3 C. lemon juice; 3 T. lemon zest; 3 T. oil; and 3 T. water. I used two lemons for the zest and juice.
 Combine all ingredients.
 Stir until smooth.
Dip each cupcake into Lemon Glaze to coat; shake off excess. Place on a wire rack set over a baking sheet (I used waxed paper); refrigerate until set. (Not necessary for me...it was a chilly day!) Makes 4 dozen.
 
RECIPE REVIEW: FABULOUS!! My kids have declared Sunny Lemon Blossoms to be their "new favorite food." They are sweet, moist, and the lemon glaze gives them a perfectly sweet-tart finish. They're darn cute  too. My husband and guests loved them as well...definitely, DEFINITELY one of the top treats I made for Christmas this year. These will go into my permanent rotation. I love taking mixes and "doctoring" them up to be something special. This was a winner.
Plus you can put them on a snowman plate to make cute eyes!

The third recipe was Reuben Dip.
You will need: 1/2 lb. deli corned beef, diced; 8-oz. pkg. cream cheese, softened; 1 C. shredded Swiss cheese; 1 C. sauerkraut, drained; 1/2 C. sour cream; 1 T. ketchup; and 2 t. spicy brown mustard.
Stir all ingredients in a bowl; spoon into greased one-quart casserole dish.
My sister Kathleen helping out!
Bake, uncovered, at 350 degrees for 30 minutes, or until hot and bubbly.
Serve warm with rye crackers or sliced party rye bread. Make 4 cups.

RECIPE REVIEW: Oh. My. Goodness. This dip is soooooo good. I made this on Christmas and when we all first tried it, right out of the oven, the flavors hadn't melded yet so we weren't quite sure. But then, as it cooled a bit, everything came together and we all just loved it. It's a very addicting dip, be warned! My brother-in-law Steve suggests adding some Parmigiano-Reggiano to the top before baking, and I think that would be great too. But as is, it's delicious.

So overall I am very pleased with this cookbook. There are several other recipes that I plan to make as well. Let me know if you make any of these recipes, I'd love to hear how you like them! And don't forget to leave a COMMENT so that you'll be eligible to win your very own advance copy! Good luck!

♥ Jen

  19. As you can see by my blog I am a huge fan of Gooseberry Patch. I have a recipe (Tater Tot Casserole) in this cookbook. But if by chance I win this book, I will gladly give it to a friend of mine...who I introduced to Gooseberry Patch and now she's hooked too!

  20. I can't tell you how much I appreciate your honesty! The biggest challenge I face when delving into my Gooseberry books tends to be, "This SOUNDS good but..." Alas! The never-knowing-until-you-make-it part occasionally keeps me at bay LOL. But just occasionally =)
    I have made some wonderful dips, and many of the treats I have found in my books are all-occasion staples. I truly love my Gooseberry books... and again- thank you SO much for your honesty about the recipes you made <3 -Julie in WA.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Thanks for the recipes! I love the pics you added as well....this dip looks perfect for New Year's Eve...and the Lemon Blossoms will be perfect too!!

    ReplyDelete
  22. I love Gooseberry Patch recipe books and your prep of some make it even easier..I'm going to use the Sourdough Chicken cassorole but use leftover turkey from Christmas...I can always use more ideas..my daughter and I have Sunday breakfast cookoffs and rotate Sunday breakfast cooking..
    . . . Best Wishes for a Happy, Healthy and Prosperous New Year!!!

    CHEERS!!!

  38. I read this early this morning and just tried the Sunny Lemon Blossoms! Of course my guys love sweet things in the morning so this came in handy for something new! I had all the ingredients in my pantry (a plus for recipes!) You are right on the nose (or taste buds):) and I agree with your review 100%! We have cold snowy weather this morning and the word "SUNNY" is exactly what we thought of with these! Although a bit sweet for the morning, I'm not sure I can go one week without making the Lemon Blossoms... maybe a weekend brunch addition. :) I can't wait to make the Ruben dip and I will try it with the Parmigiano-Reggiano as you suggest!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Thanks for your honest reviews; I agree on the casserole. The Sunny Lemon Blossoms and Reuben Dip sound (and look)like great additions to my repertoire for pot luck lunches at work and Board meeting munchies. Thanks for the step-by-step pictures, too. I'd LOVE to win the cookbook! Thanks!

  40. Hi Jen,

    This is a great page. Love the colors and designs. I own all of GBP cookbooks and this would be a very welcomed addition to my collection. I would love "Homestyle in a Hurry" because I work fulltime as an office manager and I go to college fulltime. I try to make things really easy for my husband so he doesn't have to cook alot. He's a great cook but works many hours. The recipes you made all look wonderful. I plan on trying to reube dip tonight. Have a wonderful, happy and prosperous 2011.

    Kindest Regards,
    Sheryl

  45. My tummy was getting excited just looking at the picture of ingredients for the Sourdough Chicken Casserole, then as you continued to post pictures as you cooked my mouth was watering! :*) I am super excited to try this recipe, and hope that it proves to be a Leslie Homestyle favorite! The Sunny Lemon Blossoms look fun too. I think I might make these for our next bible study b/c lemon baked goods seem to fly off the plate. And most excitedly, I hope my husband enjoys when I surprise him with the Rueben Dip...he LOVES Rueben Sandwiches! I only have one Gooseberry Patch Cookbook that I received as a wedding shower gift and it is one of my favorite books, but I thoroughly enjoy my wall calendar and it's recipe that I turn up each month! Thank you for sharing your time and thoughts on new and exciting recipes! God Bless!

  61. Hello Jen! I just found your blog via Gooseberry Patch on Facebook. I don't own any of the Gooseberry Patch cookbooks yet, but several have caught my eye & I've put them on my Amazon Wish List. Thanks for doing a review of this "Homestyle in a Hurry" cookbook. It's helpful that you've shown us a main dish, a dessert & an appetizer. I think I'll add this book to my wishlist. The recipes look yummy. Although my family loves home-cooking in the traditional sense, where everything is made 'from scratch', the ingredients like canned soup & cake mix make for a shorter prep time without compromising homemade taste or appearance. This is very important to me. Due to my health problems & pain, I'm only able to stand very briefly, which makes meal preparation a huge obstacle. Many thanks again to you & Gooseberry Patch!

    ReplyDelete
  62. I love, love, LOVE Gooseberry Patch cookbooks! Really looking forward to this new one. Thanks for posting sample recipes out of it that you reviewed. Those Sunny Lemon Blossoms just made my mouth water and luckily I think I have everything needed to whip up a batch right now! Yummmy! : )

    ReplyDelete
  63. I Love GooseBerry Patch and would love to have this book.....The recipes look wonderful and I'm gonna make the Rueban Dip for New Years Eve, along with the Lemon Bars....Yummy....

  69. First, the title of the book caught my attention, we're all in a hurry these days. I love simple 'thrown together' recipes that taste real good. Will definitely try the Lemon Blossoms and the Chicken Casserole, looks like the cost of the recipes are a nice factor as well. Looking forward to this cookbook.
