Welcome April!

I do love that it is finally warming up some.  It has been unseasonably mild the last few days but I think that might be changing.  I am a little curious though where our April Showers are.  We need rain.  Tender little seedlings need rain.  I am watering everything but it just isn’t the same. Plus it would be lovely for some of the pollen to be washed off of things so I can stop with the sneezing already :/

Before I get into the amazing Gooseberry Patch announcement – here are your April calendars – ENJOY!

Now as I promised, Gooseberry Patch is back in the house!  I received my review copy (and the giveaway copy) of this adorable BRAND NEW Gooseberry Patch book!


I wanted to squeal!  I LOVE AUTUMN and if you have been visiting me for any length of time this is not a surprise to you!  LOVE LOVE LOVE!  And new recipes and decorating ideas for AUTUMN are so exciting. This weekend I am going to be reviewing, baking, cooking & starting next Monday, April 4, I will be sharing recipes from this great new book from Gooseberry Patch. I plan on sharing 6 wonderful EASY recipes with you over the next two weeks.  Along side the original recipe taken directly from the book will be my own gluten-free version. I have to tell you this is pretty exciting for me.  I shared my gluten free versions of several recipes from past reviews and I know more and more people who drop by just might be looking for a new and delicious gluten free recipe.  If you want to get your name in to win this great cookbook, just leave me a comment after each recipe and consider yourself entered.  Each recipe you comment on enters  your name again! Please share this giveaway with your friends if you facebook or have a blog.  Then on April 15th I will draw the winner.  I picked April 15th to give us something fun to do that day!  I hate tax day and I know many of you do too!  So we will soften the blow of mailing that check with a wonderful NEW GOOSEBERRY PATCH COOKBOOK GIVEAWAY!!!

Thanks to all of you who come here and leave me comments and encouragement.  Please know I do appreciate your time.  I know how valuable it is and I am so flattered that you take time out of your busy lives to visit me.  Have a great Friday, a great weekend and pop back in Monday for recipes and more on Quick & Easy AUTUMN from Gooseberry Patch!
