A Gooseberry Patch/ Prairie Flower Farm Cookbook Party!!!!!!



Party closed!
Hello sweetie ladies,



I told you I was going to have another party and tonight is the night we are starting!!!!! We are having a Gooseberry Patch/Prairie Flower Farm Party! I will be telling you allllll about the new Rush Hours Recipes Cookbook.  You can pre-order it here if you would like. Also has it in Kindle Edition if you would rather get it that way! It has more than 230 Quick-to-fix dinner recipes your family will love..... even slow-cooker meals and potluck dishes! Tonight we were needed to make something simple. A family that lives on a farm next to us, husband was badly hurt in an accident. We needed something we could make fast. It took about 10 minutes or less to mix up the biscuits and 15 minutes to bake.  They turned out so flaky and very very tasty. The secret to this biscuit is the buttermilk! It is a must try! You will want to use this recipe every time you need biscuits for your table or for a family in need like we did!


The giveaway is going to be a copy of the 
Rush-Hour Recipes
Handmade Biscuit Cloth
and an antique Biscuit Bowl


There will be more reviews all this week!!!!!! So come back and see what we have cooking up! Here is our first review for the nummy Buttermilk Biscuits......

all you need is..........

An egg gather............ brought the Girly.......forgot the EGGS! 

unbleached flour

soda and salt

butter and pastry knife 

eggs and buttermilk

biscuit cutter

cookie sheet and oven...........and you can
bake this.........

Buttermilk Biscuits 
3 c unbleached flour
2T. baking powder
1/2 t. salt
1/2 c. shortening

On a flour pastry board, pat out dough to desired thinkness. Cut out biscuits with a biscuit cutter; place on a baking sheet sprayed with non-stick vegetable spray. Bake at 400 degrees until lightly golden, about 15 minutes. Makes about 15.

  2. Hi Linda,
    That book looks so cute!!
    I am currently making one of my favourite Christmas things. It is an ice-cream Christmas pudding, I make the ice-cream from scratch with vanilla pods and cinnamon sticks for flavour, then when that is near freezing I add home made fruit cake and home made spice cookies, freeze it and cover it in chocolate!! It is super delicious, and the perfect dessert on our hot summery Christmas days.
    Merry Christmas, may God bless you,
    Selina.

  3. Hello dear Linda, I enter in this giveaway!!!
    One thing I make only for Christmas is "Foie gras". It's a preparation with duck lever!!!! We eat this with white bread or gingerbread!!!!
    Be blessed and send you all my prayer that the flu not catch you and the rest of your lovely family.

  4. I guess the one thing I make just for CHRISTmas is a birthday cake or birthday brownies for Jesus, a tradition I started in my family 24 years ago when my first child was born. We continue it today even tho my youngest is now 18. I wanted my kids to always remember the reason for CHRISTmas. The other things I make are not always made just for CHRISTmas.

  7. Your biscuits look so good! I try to keep buttermilk on hand all of the time for my biscuits and cornbread...it makes so much difference in the taste and texture in my opinion! Please enter me in your giveaway party...Thanks so much!!

    ReplyDelete
  8. I usually make a pie.....the original title is "Japanese Fruit Pie." (the basic ingredients are: pecans, coconut, and raisins) But anyway, people like the pie, but I never liked the name. So, I changed it a few years ago (after 30+ years) to Thankmas Pie ~ since I only make it at Thanksgiving and Christmas time.

    Anyways, count me in ~ I love GP and cooking in a hurry. :)

  9. I love to make gingersnaps dipped in white chocolate and mounds bars. We also make a crannberry salad that is just for the holiday.

  24. Hello Linda! I am sorry to hear about your neighbor. I hope he is doing better today.
    I have many things that I make just at Christmas, but I think my family favorite is "Cherry Cheese Dessert" that my Mom always made. Since she is no longer with us, it is a way of keeping her memory alive. After 11 years my family still says that hers was better - and I'm okay with that. :-)

  42. The biscuits look fantastic! My favorite biscuit recipe is a lot like this one, but it calls for regular milk rather than buttermilk. It does have the eggs, though.

    What a wonderful giveaway ... so generous!

    I always make Christmas Eve Soup for supper on that night. Other must-makes for Christmas include Heavenly Delight (fudge), plus some favorite cookies: Sacher Torte Cookies, Eggnog Logs, and Whipped Shortbread. All of these recipes may be found on my blogs. Just use the little search bar at the top left!

    Merry Christmas!

  115. We always make our Christmas morning breakfast which is prepared on Christmas Eve to be ready in the morning to pop in the oven before we open presents. Such a fun family tradition that our daughter is now doing. So much fun to see your children take on a family tradition.

    ReplyDelete
  116. I have been having all the family over the weekend before Christmas for brunch the last 3 years. This gives the grands time at home with their mom and dad on Christmas day and less running for their parents. So I have cut down on my baking, although my youngest daughter always brings most of our favorites such as Buckeye balls (peanut butter balls. I make breakfast casseroles and ham and we have a wonderful day together.

    ReplyDelete
  117. One thing I make around Thanksgiving and then again at Christmas is French Bread Casserole. The kids love it. Thanks for the party. It looks like another good book.

  129. Hello Linda,
    Even though this CHRISTmas we celebrated on the 10th so my girls could be home ... we always make those certain cookies and homemade cinnamon rolls and a puff pastry we also make a chocolate "goop" that we put into coffee. We only cook this up for the holidays of Thanksgiving and Christmas.

  138. Pecan Snowballs...hands down my favorite cookie! ;) I use a special recipe from a friend of mine so it makes them extra special I like to think (and it makes my dear daddy happy so I'm happy too). :D

    Thank you for the entry!

  140. What a lovely party favor!

    I make fruitcake by the recipe my mother used just, because she made it. My hubby and I are both a couple of those "strange" people who enjoy fruitcake.

  143. I look forward to your e-mails. I always make a Jell-O salad we have called it Christmas Salad. My aunt made it when I was a child now I make it. My Sons are now in their late 20's & 30's if I don't make it they ask where it is at.

  147. I don't always make the same things at Christmas. I love to make meringue cookies and Cherry Nut Nougat cookies. Love to eat anything sweet. A friend always shares her fabulous peanut brittle with me. I can't get enough of it. So good!

  153. Oh those bisquits look great! I would love to win cuz I just broke my very favorite antique bowl yesterday! Shattered and gone-so sad. I am trying not to care because I know it is just a material thing-not what really matters. But sadly I did LOVE that bowl. Somehow antique things like that just remind me of family love! I like to have them around to remind me of how much cozy hominess is the "real" thing. Hope you are having a great Christmas Season!

  157. We always make my Mom's special fruit salad..chopped apples, oranges, bananas, pineapple and two jars of drained maraschino cherries!! Used to be one but all of us had the nasty habit of picking the cherries out before dinner so it was increased to two. Whip heavy cream and a little sugar into whipped cream and either top a bowl of fruit or blend the whole works together..it is super yummy and always served ice cold!! UMMMM!!!!

  158. Since our children came along, we have always made my husband's favorite "gobs" for Christmas. We always leave some for Santa and the rest, well, usually never last long. I also try and make the cookies that our Grandmothers made. They are no longer here with us but they are always in our hearts and our kitchen:)

  175. I make cherry pies for Christmas, and don't really make them any other time of the year- I guess it's because it's one of my favorites, and it makes it more special to have once a year. I don't want to get tired of having it. Also, I only make certain cookies, like white chocolate macadamia cookies for Christmas. It's another favorite, that I don't want to get tired of, either...

  177. One thing that I only make at Christmas is my Christmas Wreaths. My boys want to know where they are by Thanksgiving. All it is is marshmallow, butter, almond flavor, and corn flakes. Supper easy. Would love to be the one who wins the cookbook.
