Tuesdays at the Table

I thought and thought...and then thought some more. Racking my brain. Trying to come up with SOMETHING to post about that was food related, so I could play along with Andrea at My Chihuahua Bites and her Tuesdays at the Table. Today as I was visiting Andrea and dropping off a few comments. I thought of something. She always says that it doesn't have to be a recipe that we share, but that it can be a new food product, or something we've tried, or just anything food related. As I was leaving Andrea a comment, and letting her know she wasn't alone in her "loss of words...or recipe" for Tuesdays at the Table, I thought of something food related that I would like to share!


Many of you have probably already seen theses, read them, and love them.

My favorite one (ok, one of my favorites because I have several) is the 5 Ingredients or Less! Who doesn't love a meal that only calls for 5 ingredients? The fabulous thing about this cookbook is that it is split up into seasons. So, there are some specific recipes that are Spring related or Summer related, and go right along with the season we are in. There are always neat little tidbits at the bottom of each page. Sometimes it's a tip for preparing the meal, or an idea on how to make your home more "springy" or "summery" or whatever season it is. The Christmas one is great too, it has so many ideas for the holidays...how-tos on recipes, drinks, gifts, and ornaments.
Here is a sample of what the inside of the cookbook looks like...


Each week on their website (http://www1.gooseberrypatch.com/) they post a recipe of the week and a tip of the week. This weeks recipe is Onion French Bread from their Almost Homemade Cookbook (my kind of cookbook).


Onion French Bread

1 loaf French bread, sliced in half lengthwise1 c. mayonnaise1/2 c. onion, chopped
1/2 c. grated Parmesan cheese

Garnish: paprika
Place bread on an ungreased baking sheet and set aside. Mix mayonnaise, onion and cheese; spread over cut side of bread. Sprinkle with paprika; broil for 3 to 5 minutes, or until golden. Slice and serve warm. Serves 6 to 8.

Most of the cookbooks sell for less that $20. They have a tons of cutsie things on their website, not just cookbooks!

Hi Jenny! THANK YOU so much for following my blog! I want to grow in Christ and He wants me to pray for others!

Whenever I meet someone, I look to see if we have anything in common and I knew you and I would click right away cause...I LOVE "ANNIE" TOO!!!! My hubby thinks it's so funny how I love a musical sooo much but she reminds me of me when I was little. I loved to sing..I was always singing and I was very adventurous and always had friends around me! I also love how this movie shows how they's hope if you believe that the future holds great things! In our case..God has wonderful things in store! I really need to buy the movie..can't believe I don't own it.

I plan on following your blog and hopefully get to know you a little more through it! I loved the cook book idea..I've never heard of it before and YES I totally love easy recipes;D The bread recipes sounds sooo yummy! Have a beaurtiful day my friend!

I love 5 ingredient recipes! I don't have that book (gonna have to look it up), but I have the Better Homes magazine/book with several delicious 5 ingredient recipes. Our favorite is the Apple and Maple Pork Chops.

The bread sounds yummy. I'm having my co-worker and his wife over on Saturday night for dinner. I might add this bread to my menu.

I always thought that was the cutest place! My Mom gets the catalog (of course...) and I love the things in it. I also like that it was started by 2 mommy's! I like Mommys : ).
