When we hear blue-ribbon recipes we start thinking about all of our trips to our state and local county fairs. We think about our very favorite recipes that have been handed down from the best home cooks in our families...mothers, fathers, grandmothers, sisters...even best friends and neighbors. We remember seeing all of those jars of fruits and vegetables, and rows of cakes, pies, cookies and candies lined up to be sampled in the judges' tent at the fair.
Our Best Blue-Ribbon Recipes cookbook is filled with recipes that have not only won blue ribbons, but have also won the hearts of family & friends. Family-favorite recipes like Best-Ever Garlic Cheese Spread and most-requested recipes like Cheesesteak Egg Rolls are one-of-a-kind winners in our book. And a great-grandma's French Toast with Praline Sauce, handed down from the late 1800s, is one of those extra-special recipes.
We filled this cookbook with as many of the award-winning, shareable, crowd-pleasing, tried & true recipes we could. From Best-Ever Breakfast Bars to start the day, to The Best-Ever Potato Salad and Iowa's Best Corn Chowder for lunch, to Top-Prize Chicken Casserole and Best-Ever Lasagna for dinner, we think you'll find some new family favorites. And no worries...we didn't forget about dessert! You'll want to try Favorite Pecan Pie Cobbler and Blue-Ribbon Banana Cake, just to name a few.
We hope you enjoy this special recipe collection showcasing the very best from our Gooseberry Patch family & friends. Now let's get cooking! 202 Recipes.
