Gooseberry Patch Cookbook Giveaway!

As part of my newly updated site, I thought I would do a Gooseberry Patch giveaway! And along with the giveaway I am posting a recipe to review from the cookbook itself.

The cookbook up for grabs is Mom’s Very Best Recipes

Gooseberry Patch Mom's Very Best Recipes

GP Mom's Very Best Recipes Content











There are so many great comfort food recipes in this cookbook.¬† Since it is October, I thought I would keep with the Fall theme and review the recipe from the cookbook called “Sweet Apple Dip”.


8 oz. pkg. cream cheese, softened
3/4 cup brown sugar, packed
1/4 cup sugarSweet Apple Dip
1 tsp. vanilla extract
apple slices


In a bowl, blend together all ingredients except apples. Serve with apple slices. Serve immediately or chill; refrigerate any leftovers. Serves 10.

This recipe is so easy and so YUMMY! It’s like a cream cheese caramel¬† and goes great with Granny Smith apples. It’s perfect for any get-together.

Updates and Upcoming Giveaway!

Well it’s July 5th and I already have Autumn on the brain! I’m counting down the days til I can decorate, which is usually August 15th, but one of my good friends does it August 1st and I just may have to do that day too :P If my husband is reading this, I’m sorry!
I’m getting ready to update my site with a new look! I’m very excited about it and I’m even more excited to announce that with the relaunch of my site I will be doing a Gooseberry Patch Giveaway! Gooseberry Patch was very kind to give me permission to use any of their cookbooks for Giveaways on my site. So a big THANK YOU to Gooseberry Patch!
Along with the relaunch, I’ll be posting new recipes every day, ones of my own (thank you to my wonderful friends and family for being my guinea pigs!) and ones from the Gooseberry Patch cookbook I’ll be giving away. I’ll also be posting a lot more on here so it won’t be months before you see something new. ;) I also have yet to post something crafty on here, but that won’t be til around Autumn/Winter as that’s when I get in my craft zone.
I hope everyone had a safe and happy Fourth of July and are staying cool this Summer!
