"'Homestyle in a Hurry' is the latest cookbook from Gooseberry Patch and it came into my life at the perfect time. I've already started working on my New Year's resolutions. One of my main resolutions for the new year is to save money by cooking more and eating out less. "Homestyle in a Hurry" is filled with recipes that contain inexpensive ingredients, most of them are probably already in the pantry. And, the dishes come together in 30 minutes or less.
I found appealing recipes from breakfast with Megan's Cinnamon Pancakes to appetizers such as Heavenly Warm Corn Dip and Creamy Spinach Spirals. If you're like me, you're always looking for appetizers that are cheap, easy, and crowd-pleasing. I can sometimes get in a rut with my side dishes. Yes, there are many ways to cook pasta and rice, but sometimes we need some vegetables. I can't wait to try Country-style Pepper Cabbage and Barb's Bacon Green Beans. These sides will go perfectly with Sourdough Chicken Casserole and Super-fast Tilapia Parmesan. Of course, dinner isn't complete without dessert and Chocolately Chewy Brownies are the perfect ending to a warm winter meal." -- Kimberly McCallie
