Dessert anyone?

HELLLLOOOO Friday!!!! Finally!  These days are dragging by for me.  This time next week, if all goes according to plans, The Husband will be on his way back home.  YAY!  It’s been a long three weeks.

foryourposts

In the meantime, we have some recipes to share and a cookbook to give away!  If you have been following my blog, you know how this works. If not a the bottom of this post will be information about how to enter to win a copy of Foolproof Family Recipes from Gooseberry Patch and all the particulars.

I realized yesterday I hadn’t posted this recipe and it was such a hit! In fact about every two days or so one of the kids asks when are you going to make that Inside-Out cake again???  Soon…soon.   It was so easy and so very delicious.  AND super easy to make gluten free.

Inside-Out Cake

  • 2-3 TBSP sugar
  • 15 1/4 oz pkg. yellow cake mix (I used Betty Crocker’s Gluten Free Yellow Cake mix)
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup oil
  • 1 cup water
  • 15 oz can coconut-pecan frosting
  • 1/2 c chopped pecans

Generously spray a 10″ Bundt pan with non-stick vegetable spray.  Dust pan with sugar, set aside.  In a large bowl, combine dry cake mix, eggs, oil and water; beat as directed on package.  Stir in frosting mix and mix well. Fold in nuts.  Pour Batter into pan and bake in a preheated 350 oven for 50-60 minutes.  Let cake cool in pan for 10 minutes only.  Turn out onto serving plate.  Makes 12 servings.

YUMMY for your tummy!

Note: This cake is super moist which is not always easily accomplished with a gluten free cake.  We enjoyed every last crumb.  Take a look at the pictures and then scroll on down for the giveaway info!

WOOT! Gooseberry Patch GiveAway! WOOT!

Okay, here we go!  I am going to try my very best to revive this poor nearly dead blog.  I have seriously missed being out here in the blogging world.  I love connecting with people and seeing all the things we have in common.  Like a big ol’ online hen party with a few roosters who pop by every now and then.  Periodically life grabs us by the napes of our necks, spins us around and drops us in a completely, sometimes chaotic place.  Well, that’s where I have been for almost two years. So many changes.  The constants in my life were there and it seemed I was trying desperately to hold on in a whirlwind of changes. SO, here I am.  Hoping some of you will come back on a regular basis.  And hey, leave me a note and let me know you were here Ü

foryourposts

What better way to get back in the swing of things than a giveaway?  You all know how much I love Gooseberry Patch.  LOVE LOVE.  I have been a friend of Gooseberry Patch for SO many years.  Likely from the beginning, truth be told.  Most of you know how these Early Bird Cookbook Reviews go and how to win your very own copy of  FOOLPROOF FAMILY RECIPES. Oh and a little something from me as well. But, that’s a surprise!

I wish I could draw, paint, make art like the cover of Gooseberry Patch Cookbooks!  Anywho…here’s your first recipe. Brown Sugar Meatloaf - It was scrumptious!

  • 1/2 cup catsup
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 2 eggs beaten
  • 1 – 1 1/2 t salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 3/4 cup saltine crackers, crushed (I used gluten free of course)
  • 1 t  Worchestershire sauce

Mix together catsup and brown sugar in a small bowl and set aside.  In a large bowl, combine remaining ingredients; mix by hand and form into a loaf.  Place in a lightly greased 9 x 5 loaf pan (I use a meat loaf pan – you can find one here.  In fact this is the very one I have).  Spoon catsup mixture over meatloaf. Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for one hour.  Serves 8.

What goes with meat better than potatoes?  These Golden Parmesan Potatoes especially!  Super simple is never a bad thing either.

  • 2 pounds new potatoes, quartered
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 1/2 t. Italian seasoning
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese

In a large bowl, toss potatoes with oil, seasoning and garlic.  Add cheese; mix lightly.  Spread mixture in a lightly greased 15 x 10 jelly roll pan.  Bake, uncovered, at 400 degrees  for 45 minutes, or until potatoes are tender.  Makes 6 servings.
