Gooseberry Patch delivers another delicious cookbook that makes me think of early mornings on the farm with my Grandma. Ok we were having homemade mexican food and it was just my brother and I, but that feeling was still there.

Now I have my own family and it is a large one so I’m always looking for new recipes that are family tested.

Sweet Apple Butter Muffins on page 19
Brandi’s Ultimate Tex-Mex Soup on page 20
Zesty Minestrone on page 26
Spicy Black-Eyed Pea Soup on page 39
Paprika Chicken on page 49

Are you hungry yet? Yep I could keep going they all sound delicious and very kitchen friendly. Oh you want this cookbook.. Giveaway will be down below after the recipe. But first…
