Cookbook Giveaway! Gooseberry Patch's "Garfield - Recipes With Cattitude!" UPDATED WITH PHOTOS!

I'm thrilled to announce a new association with the nice folks at Gooseberry Patch and to celebrate I have a great giveaway for their latest cookbook!

About The Book:

Gooseberry Patch and Garfield the cat... it's a match made in food heaven! The first new Garfield cookbook in ten years, Garfield...Recipes with Cattitude! is packed with over 230 yummy recipes near and dear to Garfield's tummy. Gooseberry Patch fans will love this fun new twist on the quick & easy recipes they've come to expect. Garfield collectors will love the strips and quips by Jim Davis, while the simple recipes will entice even inexperienced cooks.

Garfield...Recipes with Cattitude! delivers heaps of homestyle flavor and Garfield's humor adds tons of fun to each page. Readers will love Cheesy Scramblin' Pizza for breakfast. Happy Burgers, Baked Chili Fries and Jim's Spicy Deviled Eggs (from Davis himself!) are on the lunch menu. Spicy Honey Chicken Wings and Crispy Bacon Bread Sticks are perfect for snacking and sharing.
At dinner, they'll love Bow-Tie Lasagna, Creamy Salmon Manicotti, and Meatball Pizza Pockets just as much as Garfield does. Even a bachelor like Garfield's owner, Jon Arbuckle, can make Incredibly Easy Pot Roast and Spicy Roasted Potatoes with these simple-to-follow recipes. Of course, it isn't dinner without dessert, so treat yourself to Caramel Apple Pie.
Chapters include: Breakfast Is Served...Time to Get Up!; First Lunch, Then a Catnap; Snack Attack!; Lotsa Lasagna, Pasta & Pizza; It's Dinner Time...Now!; and Dinner is Over, What's for Dessert? There are plenty of Garfield gags and illustrations, plus easy cooking tips and simple substitutions... the kind of advice Gooseberry Patch fans have come to love.

My Thoughts:

This is an adorable cookbook that is just perfect for families, for cat-lovers, and for fans of that rascally feline Garfield!  It is packed with bright, colorful cartoons of Garfield and all his friends, plus yummy recipes for simple but delicious dishes that are sure to please the finickiest appetites!

In addition to the cartoons and recipes, each page features a fun tip from authors Vickie Hutchins and Jo Ann Martin to enhance the enjoyment of the dishes - such as serving ideas, preparation tips, etc. These little suggestions have always been my favorite part of the Gooseberry Patch books and I was delighted to see them featured in this book!

The recipes featured here are all fun and delicious sounding - and probably most importantly, appealing to families in their ease of preparation and their attractiveness to kids.

I highly recommend "Garfield - Recipes With Cattitude" for parents, grandparents, and anyone who enjoys having a bit of fun with their food!

What I Made From The Book - Pizza Pretzel Nibblers

My boys are all grown, but I still like to fix them special snacks to send to them or to have on hand when they come to visit. The recipe for "Pizza Pretzel Nibblers" in the "Snack Attack!" section caught my eye, and I was amazed and pleased at how well they turned out, and how addictive they could be!  The first batch I made quickly disappeared (ok, it was movie night and the husband and I inhaled them!), so I have plans to make a couple more batches to take to the kids this weekend.  Simple, fast, and tasty!  That makes it a winner in my book!

Easy Peasy - just takes four ingredients!  Sourdough pretzel nuggets, spaghetti sauce mix, parmesan cheese and canola oil.

Mix the pretzel nuggets with the dry ingredients - tossing well with the canola oil. Then bake!

45 minutes later - a tasty snack!

Check out this cute video for one of Garfield's favorite recipes - Lasagna!
