Slow-Cooker Fall Favorites~Review & Giveaway!

It's the first day of Fall, and the weather here in southeast Ohio is cool, cloudy with a few rain showers, which is a perfect fall day for me!

It's also perfect for a recipe review of Gooseberry Patch's newest cookbook, Slow-Cooker Fall Favorites. Chock full of comfort food recipes!

In addition to the wonderful recipes you expect from a Gooseberry Patch cookbook, there are also  memories shared by Gooseberry Patch fans, in the first chapter, Autumn's in the Air. Other chapters include, Morning Frost on the Pumpkins, Tailgating with Family & Friends, Off to the Pumpkin Patch, Gather 'Round the Table and Sweet Treats Around the Bonfire.

My family loves soups & stews when the weather gets colder.
We especially enjoyed the Zuppa Pizzeria.
