Cookbook Love!


The lovely people at Gooseberry Patch have published my Easy Cheesy Bean Dip recipe in one of their new cookbooks that will be out soon!  Check it out over at my Amazon shop HERE.

Oh, and the fine folks over at GBP have given me a copy to giveaway!  Scroll down for details!



Easy Cheesy Bean Dip

1 8 oz. cream cheese (softened)
1 can bean dip
1 c. sour cream
1 1/2 tsp. onion powder
1/2 package taco seasoning mix or my homemade mix HERE
1/2 lb. shredded colby-jack cheese

Mix all ingredients except the cheese. Layer in a crock pot or a casserole dish 1/2 the mixture and 1/2 the cheese; repeat. Cook on low for 4 hours or so or bake 20 minutes at 350 degrees.

Serve with nacho chips, chopped tomatoes, black olives, guacamole, etc.!

Notes: Sometimes I add 1/2 pound browned, ground beef to the mixture to give it a little more protein. A lot of times when we go camping I'll take a crock pot with us and the ingredients. I'll pop it all in the crock pot after breakfast and it's ready by lunchtime!

I am exhausted! We are remodeling our bathroom and carrying a lot of the old materials down the steps and outside. There was carpet on the floor and paneling on the walls. It will be nice when done but it is a mess now!

Love to have a copy of the GP book. The day has been pretty laid back. I have got Sunday's breakfast already to go in the oven tomorrow morning. Always a plus when the work is done ahead of time.

My day is going quite fine. Had a fellow come to the house to give me a quote for new posts, railing, and front steps. Can hardly wait for the work to be done.

Thank you for the nice giveaway.

I also pinned the cheesy dip recipe on Pinterest. http://pinterest.com/jtgram/snacks-appetizers/

Does that count as an extra entry? Just a thought.

Your dip sounds so good & I will definitely have to give it a try. It is snowing, thundering & hailing all at one time here in Nebraska right now. Where, oh where is spring!

Today it is a nice warm spring day, finally! My day is going well, it's so nice outside, but a bit breezy, but I'll take it, better than more snow. We have been waiting long enough for the spring to finally arrive with warmer temps. I put out seed for the birds,checked on the hummingbird feeders that I just put out the other day, hopefully they will be migrating back here soon, it should be any day now. It's so nice to see the different birds around..it shows that spring has finally arrived. Thanks for the chance of winning this give-a-way.

Hi! My day has gone well. Gawjus weather in Central Kentucky! Our cat had his first vet visit today. He not only did well, he was quite flirtatious; lolling in front of the door so the (female) vet couldn't leave :)

I love all Gooseberry Patch recipes and would love to win this cookbook to add to my collection! It is very rainy windy and cool here today.

My day will be interesting...going grocery shopping for the second time after living in Cambodia for four years. I wonder if I will still be shocked by some of the food prices. (Smile)
