Gooseberry Patch Weeknight Dinners Cookbook - Giveaway - Beyer Beware

Gooseberry Patch Weeknight Dinners Cookbook – Giveaway

I love this book.

Weeknight Dinners CookbookMaybe it is because it has some great recipes in it for a crazy busy parent like me. It even features my Italian Bread Pizza.

Leah's Italian Bread Pizza

These recipes are quick to make. Like these Italian Steak Sandwiches.

Italian Steak SandwichOr this Speedy Lasagna Skillet. Which I think I might make tonight again.

Speedy Skillet LasagnaOK, maybe my family has an obsission with Italian inspired foods. This book breaks down each day of the week with a theme. Meatless Monday – which is called side recipes in my house, Tex-Mex Night Tuesday, Italian Wednesday, Comfort Food Thursday and Just for Fun on Friday. The index breaks the recipes down by main dishes, sides, breads. Any way you need to find a recipe you can.

But back to the recipes. This hamburger helper knockoff without the box. This cheeseburger macaroni was also a hit.

And for cheesy bread lovers, there is no lack of recipes for you in here either. This bread is becoming a staple in our house. I stock up when the bread is on quick sale.

    Hash from a can because I work 10 hr. days, but the bread I baked on my day off from this link…. I did read a hint from the original post.. Use Ale instead of beer for a more yeasty, robust flavor. The beer is rather mild and gets lost in eating it with foods like stew or hash.
