"For more than 20 years, our readers have enjoyed recreating our tried and true recipes in their own kitchens," says Martin. "Now, they can follow us step-by-step while we bake, sizzle, blend, stir, chop, taste, and have lots of fun!"
"From garden lunches to summertime dinners, tailgating snacks to holiday treats, we’ll be bringing you delicious dishes for every season, straight from the Gooseberry Patch kitchen," says Hutchins. "It’s simple and delicious homestyle cooking, like Mom and Grandma used to make."
Martin and Hutchins have cooked up a baker's dozen of recipes to launch the series. From Creamy BLT Dip and Goalpost Apple Slaw, to Coffee Cream Brownies and Vickie's Tomato-Basil Pie, there's an easy-to-prepare dish for every cook and every occasion. Complete recipes are presented in a simple step-by-step format, along with a link to an easy-to-print recipe.
"We’ll be sharing new recipes all the time, so check back often for more dishes that bring family and friends to the table," promises Martin.
