101 Farmhouse Favorites is filled with all the wonderful dishes that made meals at the farmhouse so memorable, and now you can inspire warm memories of your own! Start your morning off right with a big slice of Easy Bacon Frittata or some Swirled Coffee Cake. Gather the family ’round the table for dinner with easy favorites like Cayenne Fried Chicken, BBQ Pork Ribs and Grandma’s Buttery Mashed Potatoes. There’s no better way to top off a hearty farmhouse dinner than with a luscious dessert…how about a big slice of Strawberry-Rhubarb Pie or Root Beer Cake? There is also a canning chapter in 101 Farmhouse Favorites, with great recipes that let you store away a little bit of summer to enjoy all year long. You’re sure to love Garlic Dill Pickles, Mom’s Peach Butter and Our Favorite Salsa.

Like all of Gooseberry Farms cookbooks, this one does not disappoint. I love how easy everything is to make and how they use ingredients that are easily found. We just had this for dinner:

Daily’s Cocktails Giveaway!

strawberry_pouchIf you are looking for a great drink for New Years, Daily’s Cocktails are what you need! As a mom who won’t be going anywhere, I love that I can easily party a little at home.

Daily’s Cocktails can easily be found at Walmart. They have lots of great flavors like Strawberry Daiquiri (my personal favorite), pina colada, frozen lemonade, and margarita. Since we don’t own a blender, I love that all I have to do is throw these in the freezer, and 8 hours later I have an awesome frozen drink!
