    I really need this cookbook. My go-to casserole is so boring - beef, tomato and macaroni. Blah! Help me :)

  1. Oh, this looks wonderful! I love cauliflower. Definitely trying this one.

    My favorite GP recipe is one from a Christmas book a few years ago for gingerbread bowls. We've made them several times as teacher gifts, and they're always fun!

  1. Susan said...:

    I've got everything to make this - looks like it will be on the menu soon. My favorite GP recipe is from 101 Easy Everyday Recipes -- Company Green Beans. It's another go to recipe that uses staples I always have on hand!

    That casserole looks sooo good! My favorite Gooseberry patch book is a older one For Bees and me.Warm Blessings!~Amy

  1. Rednexx Girl said...:

    I am so not a fan of cauliflower however.....this recipe looks like it may just change my mind.

    My go-to casserole would have to be Chicken pot pie. Technically it may not be a casserole, but it sure does make everyone's tummy happy! Tator tot casserole is close second.

    I love your blog and have been a follower for sometime now. I am also connected with you via facebook & pintrest.

    I love cauliflower, and this looks like a fantastic way to use it! Thanks for sharing.

    Most of my favorite Gooseberry Patch cookbooks are the older ones, too. I love Good For You! and get that out to browse through every spring and summer. Lots of healthy ideas in that one. Another favorite -- it was the first one I bought, but has many of my favorite recipes in it -- is Welcome Home for the Holidays. It's a very versatile cookbook since it has recipes and ideas for the harvest season all the way up through Christmas. And a sentimental favorite is Simple Joys of Christmas, because I have both a recipe and a memory in that one, and I gave copies of that book to both of my daughters and my daughter-in-law.

    Thanks for the review. It looks and sounds fantastic. I'll be anxious to cut some of the fats out of it and try it myself.

    It does not say whether or not to cook the cauliflower first.........think I will lightly steam as I am cooking it right now.
    Thanks for all the yummy recipes ♥
