My Very FIRST Giveaway!
This giveaway has ended but check out giveaways link up above to see if there are any current giveaways going on!
I’m so excited for my very first giveaway to be a Gooseberry Patch cookbook! I have loved Gooseberry Patch for a long time and I think I have recipes in 12 or 13 of their cookbooks. They are a wonderful company! If you don’t have any of their cookbooks, you should.
This is the cookbook I will be giving away thanks to the generosity of Gooseberry Patch. It’s a small book ~ about 6×6 ~ with 48 pages. So many wonderful recipes are included along with tips on wrapping, thanks yous, etc. Here is some more about the book from the Gooseberry Patch site ~ Recipes for Warming Hearts.
I made the chicken tetrazzini recipe and it was wonderful! I used a cooked chicken from the store and included the optional mushrooms. Super easy and both Mr. Meat Eater and myself said we would have it again. It’s a great recipe to included in this cookbook because it would be wonderful to bring to a friend or family member in need. Add a salad and bread and you have a great meal that’s easy on the pocketbook.
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
2 cups chicken broth
2 tbsps sherry or chicken broth (I used the sherry)
2 cups milk or whipping cream (I used milk)
8 ounces spaghetti, cooked
2 cups cooked chicken, cubed
3/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese, divided
optional: 4 ounce can of sliced mushrooms (I used a larger sized can since we love mushrooms)
Melt butter in a large saucepan or Dutch oven over medium heat. Add flour, salt and pepper; cook until bubbly. Add broth, sherry or chicken broth, chicken broth and milk or cream; bring to boil for one minute ~ making sure to whisk continuously.
Stir in spaghetti, chicken, 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese and mushrooms, if using; mix well. Spread in a lightly greased 13×9 baking pan and sprinkle with remaining Parmesan cheese.
Bake, uncovered, at 350º for 30 minutes.
Makes 6-8 servings.
I’ll be running this giveaway until midnight on September 28. I will put all entries in a bowl and have Mr. Meat Eater or a friend pick the winner. I will post the winner here and on my facebook page. The winner will have to contact me within 3 days with name and address and I will send out the book by priority mail. If I don’t hear from the winner within 3 days, I will pull a new winner.
