Everyday Simple Suppers.....Review & Giveaway!


I honestly didn't know where to start with this cookbook. It is literally full of the best recipes! I went crazy digging through this one, and I still have a list on my refrigerator of more recipes I can't wait to make.

Another surprise for me as I flipped through this newest cookbook from Gooseberry of my recipes is in it! Cool! :)

With fall coming, I chose a slow-cooker recipe. Nothing is as cozy as coming home to a home that smells as yummy as dinner already cooked! Joan's Slow-Cooker Chicken Stuffing Casserole hit the spot with my family!

Joan's Slow-Cooker Chicken Stuffing Casserole
2 6-oz. pkgs. chicken flavored stuffing mix
2 (10 3/4 oz.) cans cream of chicken soup, divided
1/2 c. milk
3 c. cooked chicken, cubed
8-oz. pkg. shredded Cheddar cheese
Prepare stuffing mix according to package directions; place in a lightly greased 5 qt. slow cooker. Stir in one can soup. Stir together remaining soup, milk and chicken in a separate bowl. Add to slow cooker. Sprinkle cheese over top. Cover and cook on high setting for 3 hours or on low setting for 4 to 6 hours. Serves 6.
Hamburger-Noodle Bake
All I can say about this recipe, comfort food!
1 lb. ground beef

Brown beef and onion in skillet over medium heat; drain. Stir in tomato sauce, sugar, garlic salt and pepper; heat through. Set aside. Combine cottage cheese, sour cream, and cream cheese in a bowl; gently stir in noodles. Spread half the cream cheese mixture in an ungreased 13x9 inch baking pan. Layer with half the beef mixture; repeat layers. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Bake uncovered, at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Garnish with Parsley. Serves 8.

Taco Salad

Refrigerate for at least one hour to blend flavors. Before serving, crush tortilla chips and add to salad; mix well. Serves 6-8.

Soft Peanut Butter Cookies
1 c. sugar
1 c. creamy peanut butter
1 egg, slightly beaten
1 t. vanilla extract
Combine all ingredients; mix well. Form dough into one-inch balls and place on an ungreased baking sheet. Use a fork to press a crisscross pattern into the top of each cookie. Bake at 325 degrees for 10 minutes, or until golden. Cool before removing from baking sheet. Makes 2 dozen.
