Grilling and Campfire Cooking Day 1 {A Review and Giveaway}

I'm back with yet another fantastic Gooseberry Patch cookbook for ya'll! I'm super excited to share this one. One, because it's filled with delicious recipes just in time for summer grilling and camping; and two, because I just so happen to have a couple included in this one! It gives me such great joy to know the great folks at GP love my food enough to include my recipes in their amazing publications! (If you're interested, my Kansas City Pork Chops can be found on page 10 and Mini Parmesan Corn on page 97!!) 



We love to grill. In fact, we enjoy it so much we do so year round. Yep, we're the people who have been known to throw some t-bones on the grill during a blizzard. (True story! Ask our neighbors. They were so jealous!) But I will admit, during the warm, sunny months is when I absolutely enjoy it the most. There is just something about firing up the grill that screams summer to me; and this book is full of tasty recipes to celebrate all things barbecue season. Everything from salads to main dishes to desserts and beverages, it has something for everyone. 

The first recipes I'm sharing is one I know you're just going to love. What says cookout or barbecue more than a creamy, cool, crisp, coleslaw? I have many different versions I make, but the thing that caught my eye about this one right away was the dill

I am a huge dill fan, and any time I can add it to a favorite dish, it just takes it over the top. This is so simple to make and so delicious, I know it will be a great addition to your next backyard get together! Grab the charcoal, or maybe the propane tank, and get grilling all summer long. Oh, and Gooseberry Patch is giving (1) lucky winner a change to bring this book home to your kitchen. Just scroll down below the recipe to enter!

I love to cook over an open fire. We make hobo dinners (chicken sausage, potatoes, carrots and onion) in foil. Apple slices with cinnamon and sugar in foil.
