NEW Gooseberry Patch Cookbook Giveaway!


GBP Hometown Harvest

A brand spanking new Gooseberry Patch cookbook, Hometown Harvest, is up for grabs.  Hometown Harvest is a great cookbook although I may be biased since fall is my favorite time of year.  This book has several wonderful chapters, Hometown Pancake Breakfast, Church Social Soup Supper, Thanksgiving Dinner to remember, Game Day Get-Together, Pumpkin Patch Sweets, Slow-Cooker Potluck Pleasers, and Over the River and Through the Woods.  All are chock full of wonderful recipes from home cooks like yourself.  I even have a recipe in this book ~ Buttermilk Pecan Waffles.  The last chapter is is full of  memories from readers and customers of Gooseberry Patch products.

After the recipe will be all the “rules” for this giveaway!

The first recipe I tried from this cookbook is Mini Apple Turnovers.  They are super simple to make and would be perfect for unexpected guests or for tea time.

Turnovers 1

Mini Apple Turnovers
Submitted by Robyn Stroh, Calera, AL

2 9-inch pie crusts, homemade or store bought
21 ounce can apple pie filling
1 egg white
1 tbsp water

Place one crust on a lightly floured surface. With a 3 inch biscuit cutter, cut out as many circles as you can. I used a slightly bigger cutter and got about 7 rounds from each crust.

Top each circle with 1 to 2 teaspoons pie filling, cutting up the apples if necessary. I placed my apples toward one side so it would be easier to close. Fold circles in half and crimp the edges wiht a fork dipped in water.

Place on lightly creased cookie sheets. Repeat with second crust.

In a small bowl, beat egg white and water together and brush over turnovers.

Bake at 425º for 8-12 minutes or until golden.

Makes 12-14 turnovers.

To enter the giveaway for ONE copy of Hometown Harvest all you have to do is comment on this post and tell me what your favorite food to make in the fall is. One comment per person. Very, very easy. The giveaway will run until October 3 at midnight. I will pick ONE winner on October 4 and I will email the winner! If you have any questions, feel free to email me at girard dot nancy at yahoo dot com.

Happy Cooking!

  18. After 9 months of being homeless, I have a job, and hopefully within the next week my son and I will be moving into a home. I’ve lost everything. This cookbook would be the first in my new home. I would love it! And look forward to trying every recipe. I’ve missed cooking so very much!

  19. I love to cook anything pumpkin in the fall. Although I already made an apple pie, got the apples from a friend, will be getting more so I think I’ll try this recipe with this bunch so apples.

  20. I love giveaways. I am going to share on facebook also. Hmn I could really use this book. I am not much of a cook. I think 15yrs in the waitress field I tend to come home and make something easy. I do like to make enchiladas! Thanks for the chance.

  21. Those Apple Hand Pies Look Good, My Neighbor Gave Us Some Fresh Apples Off His Tree, I Plan On Making These Pies Soon. I Love To Bake, In The Fall I Like To Bake Shredded Apple Pies, My Family Love Comfort Food, So I Make Chicken Pot Pies, Chicken & Dumplins & Yams.

  22. Definitely Zucchini bread!! Always chop some extra zucchini up and freeze it in 2 cup baggies so you can pull it out and make some for Thanksgiving and Christmas!! Ohhh, the smell and taste are Heavenly!!!! :O)

  23. I love soups in the fall. I make a variety of them. Chili, baked potato soup, ham and cabbage chowder, and stuffed pepper soup. And I love to try new recipes.

  24. The mini apple pies look delicious! I absolutely will not turn on my oven during the summer….so when Fall arrives I am thrilled to be able to turn on the oven and start baking cakes, cookies, cinnamon rolls, brownies…pretty much anything sweet!!

  26. Aahhh…fall in New England is amazing!! As soon as we pick the apples from the tree, I’m in the kitchen. Favorites would be apple crisp and apple brownies. Happy Fall !!!

  27. When the weather finally turns cool, I always crave chili. In fact, that’s what I am doing today, looking up new chili recipes to try.

  28. Hi Nancy!

    My absolute favortie recipe to make would have to be my signature Pineapple- Cream Cheese cake! It can be made year-round, but I mainly pull it out during Thanksgiving and Christmas because after dinner, it is a wonderful ending to a delicious dinner :)!

  29. Fall means the soup is on! (I don’t even bother putting my stock pot away between September and April here in Michigan.)

  30. Pumpkin pie or warm apple pie. Maybe even cinnamon rolls….who am I kidding? Any sweet treat, lol! Love this time of year! 🙂

  31. I really like Gooseberry Patch. Their recipes are usually down to earth and easy to make. The about mini pies – oh I just can’t wait to try them as their is only two of us now and a regular pie ends up going to waste. Thanks for sharing.

  32. Apple pies using our local apples, and a variety of soups from my families tried and true favorites plus trying out a few new soup recipes from new cookbooks 🙂

  33. I can’t choose just one favorite. A few of my top choices would be apple pie, chili, soups and casseroles. I will definitely try this recipe and I would love to win this cookbook.

  34. Oh my gosh. I have an obsession with fall. There is something about the chill in the air, the feeling of wrapping your fingers around a warm mug of apple cider, the smells of pies baking and soup simmering, the colors of the leaves and wearing sweaters!! Ah, I start counting down in June. (; my favorite thing to make is probably pumpkin chocolate chip cookies or chicken tortilla soup. ❤ warms my heart.

  35. Chicken and Wild Rice Soup is a favorite for my family for fall and apple dumplings is my personal favorite and family memory. Apple dumplings were the treat we received after spending a day picking apples at the orchard with mom.

  36. I so do enjoy my Gooseberry cookbooks! I miss your items for sale,
    especially when I cannot find them any where else. I love the idea
    of Harvest recipes and loads of ideas. Fall is my favorite time of the
    year. Living here in California, we don’t get much of the changing
    of the colors on the trees. When I can find trees that do change color drop their leaves, I cannot resist walking through them and
    hear the sound of them. Please, please, come back with your
    items for sale! Thank you so much for your wonderful cookbooks.

  37. My grandmother’s homemade baked beans using heirloom beans I bought from a farm while I was in Maine is my 1st autumn meal this year. But, I’d have to say my favorite is apple crisp. We go apple picking & bring back many, many pounds of apples in many different varieties. YUMMM!

  38. I wait all year to make Thanksgiving dinner. I love every part of it: planning, researching, shopping, baking — even prepping those mounds of celery and onions. Maybe it’s because it was my special time to spend with my grandmother. From the time I was big enough to stand on a chair, there was a task for me to do so that I could be recognized as one of the cooks. Each time I smell a turkey roasting, it takes me back to Mom-mom Rose’s kitchen and the unconditional love I found there.

  39. My favorite Fall recipe is the REAL homemade chicken and dumplings (Bisquick – not refrigerated biscuits). Real chicken, mushrooms, and real dumplings cooked in the broth. It was a favorite that my mom used to make whenever it looked like it would snow! Thanks for reading! Sue

  40. My favorite thing to make in the fall? I can’t possibly name just one! So, a few would include: apple pie and applesauce, beef or venison stew, any kind of soup and hearty casseroles.
