Gooseberry Patch Slow Cooking All Year Long Giveaway

I am not sure how people function without a crock pot. Let’s be honest, I am not sure how people function with just one crock pot. I have several. Cabinets full of small ones and large ones and medium ones and oval ones and round ones and digital timer ones. I have a broken one too. Imagine my horror when my friend, Jent, informed me she doesn’t own a crock pot. So, I guess she won’t be needing this Slow Cooking All Year ‘Round Cookbook. But I know you all do!!

Slow Cooking All Year Round
This cookbook has a variety of slow cooking recipes that are ready in an hour or in 10 hours. It is broken down into four main chapters that follow the seasons to help all of us utilize what we have in season. Each chapter includes breakfasts, appetizers, main dishes , sides and even desserts. And luckily it also has an index to help this girl find the right recipe by type of food.

So far I have made a spicy shredded beef for tostadas that of course got my attention when I saw a can of chipotles peppers in adobo sauce in the ingredients.

Slow cooked spicy beef
In the matter of one meal, we were able to form several different creations with the spicy beef. We even topped it on our Mexican mashed potatoes.

But the favorite so far might be the last-resort chicken legs. The kids loved the chicken legs. Loved them. And of course with butter, hot sauce and barbecue sauce in the recipe, it was just spicy enough for all of us.

Slow Cooker Chicken Legs
I don’t know why, but I feel like I have to eat macaroni and cheese with chicken legs, even if they aren’t fried. And the creamy macaroni and cheese recipe is the perfect recipe for a family on the go all the time. It only takes an hour to make. Perfect to through in the crock pot before you take the kids to practice and is ready when you get home. Be still my heart…

Excited about this book yet? Well if you aren’t, check out the easy taco soup my friend, Cris made. Or better yet, the very first recipe in the book is Christmas Egg Brunch from Amy over at a latte with Ott, A.

      “All you need is love” is what I live by. Once you open yourself up and live through your heart, you see how we are all connected, not just with each other, but with the earth, and all sentient beings. Then it’s never a ‘chore’ to take care of the trees, animals, earth, etc, because you are taking care of yourself!

  4. Jessica W says

    Now that I am a retired homeschool mom and new grandma who works full time + most weeks, I have bought my third crock pot. To think I felt a little over the top about having three! I guess I have a ways to go to pass you up! 😉

    I can use as many ideas as possible, particularly things I can make ahead on Saturday or before for Sunday dinner when some family and friends are usually here for dinner. The leftovers make packing lunches for dh and me pretty easy; then I need more inspiration midweek!

  20. says

    With our crazy schedules the crockpot is the way to go. This way I can ensure everyone has a hot meal when they come home whether they come through the door at 5pm or 7pm. I have loved everything that Gooseberry Patch has put out and I’m excited to enter to win this one!
