Recipe Published

From time to time, Gooseberry Patch requests recipes from its followers and I am usually only happy to oblige.  They always have a theme -- Christmas, cookie swap, quick-to-fix -- that they are featuring and outline what they are looking for regarding number of ingredients, time involved and so on.  In exchange for a recipe of mine that they publish, they send me a free cook book.  Wow!  What a deal!  A free Gooseberry Patch cookbook for one of my recipes.  I will take that deal any day of the week.

This new cookbook from Gooseberry Patch is called Foolproof Family Recipes, easy-to-make recipes for new cooks, newlyweds, and families on the go.  And I have the perfect recipe -- Newlywed Roast.  Trust me, even if you can't boil water, this roast will rival your mother-in-law's!  With only three main ingredients, this is quick and easy, too -- my kind of recipe.

It's always fun to dig through my (ahem) clutter of recipes.  I intend one day to organize my recipes into a recipe scrapbook and have even started collected ideas and embellishments to do so, but I just haven't found the time as yet.  Pinterest is full of ideas and when I stop to take a peek at what I've already collected, I get sidetracked by new ideas to pin and lose track of time.  Before I know it, it's time to start dinner and I haven't accomplished anything but a slew of new pins.  Wouldn't it be great to have a neatly stacked bookcase with recipes readily at hand of your favorites?  I thought about making a recipe scrapbook of just those recipes I like to use at Christmas.  What a timesaver!  Maybe one day . . .
