303 Simple & Satisfying Recipes Day 1 {A Review of Gooseberry Patch}

It's that time again! Another new Gooseberry Patch cookbook is here and you're going to love it! 


3 books in one! This super-sized collection of recipes has everything you need to create breakfasts to remember, dinners they'll devour and desserts you'll love to share. 303 Simple & Satisfying Recipes includes 3 sections with every recipe from our previously published cookbooks, 101 Easy, Everyday Recipes, 101 Slow-Cooker Recipes and 101 Cupcake, Cookie & Brownie Recipes. With this book at your fingertips, kitchen creativity is just a page-turn away. ~From Gooseberry Patch

Cover to cover, this book is filled with recipes that will quickly become classics and go-tos in your kitchen. I've already got a bunch marked to try, but as soon as I saw this one, I knew it would be first. 

Fall, soups and my Crock Pot are three peas in a pod. While I use my slow cooker all year long, autumn is definitely when it gets utilized the most. And I love nothing more than a big pot of soup, cooking all day long, ready to eat when we are, after along, cold day.

This one is so simple, and tastes like a warm blanket feels. Smooth, creamy, flavorful, everything you want in a good potato soup. 

Oh, and that fabulous new cookbook? The fine folks at Gooseberry Patch have one for a lucky EMM reader too. Just scroll down underneath the recipe and find how to enter to win! 


Crock Pot Cream of Potato Soup
Submitted by Roberta Simpkins Mentor-on-the-Lake, OH Found on pg. 166
6 potatoes, peeled and cubed
2 onions, chopped
1 carrot, sliced
1 stalk celery, sliced
4 cubes chicken bouillon
1 TBS dried parsley
5 c. water
1/4 tsp. pepper
1 TBS salt
1/3 c. butter, melted
1 (12 oz.) can evaporated milk
Chives for garnish

Combine all ingredients except milk in a slow cooker. Cover and cook on LOW for 10-12 hours or on HIGH for 3-4 hours. Stir in milk during last hour of cooking. Garnish with chives, if desired. *NOTE* I always salt and pepper to taste, and probably added more here. I also used a potato masher right before I added the milk to thicken it a bit. Then I removed some of the liquid, added 1 TBS cornstarch and whisked the mixture and evaporated milk back into the soup. I cooked for another 30 minutes until it had thickened.

My favorite slow cooker soup would have to be pumpkin soup. It is yummy cold or hot. Add a sprinkle of cinnamon sugar and let the lip smaking begin. :) Thanks Tammy C.
