I love GooseBerry Patch cookbooks and the magazine. The recipes are so easy and uses every day staples in your pantry. The cookbooks are very affordable and have step by step instructions.
As a college student and mom, I am alllll about saving time. Most people get frustrated with cookbooks because they have complicated steps, require too many fancy ingredients, or don’t contain enough “keeper” recipes. How many of these issues did I have with a cookbook from Gooseberry Patch? NONE WHATSOEVER. As much as I like to think I cook from scratch, I always have some canned goods filling up my pantry shelves. Most of the time, I like to do something more than just open the can, heat the ingredients and serve. It’s like being a competitor on Chopped. You have to TRANSFORM the ingredients somehow.
I love chicken and dumplings and the recipe in this cookbook had to be the easiest I have ever made. I can’t believe I never thought to use canned biscuits. I used all organic ingredients and found a can of refrigerated biscuits in the “healthy” food aisle at Fred Meyers. The only thing I would change for next time is making sure the contents are boiling when I add the biscuit dough. I was at school all day, so my fiance turned the soup down to low. When I added the biscuit dough, it was soft and spongey. It didn’t have enough texture. I am fairly certain it was because the soup was not boiling hot.
