OMGod is so good!
I use to hate to cook... because I didn't know how.
But God did an amazing work with me and cookbooks.
He taught me how to "study" my cookbooks.
And in learning how to study cookbooks,
I also learned how to truly study His Word.
It was a learning process
that I might share more with you in a future post.
As for today's post,
just know that I've studied LOTS and LOTS
of Gooseberry Cookbooks and let... me... tell... ya!!!
They are the BEST!
And the Gooseberry Gals are the BEST!
Vickie and JoAnn are just so stinkin' sweet.
I lov'em... the books and the gals!
Now on to a recipe that my family loves as well...
FIVE BEAN BAKE
The recipe calls for 1/2 lb crispy cooked and crumbled bacon, drippings reserved. I decided to leave this out. Saute 1 chopped onion in the reserved bacon drippings. Again, I left this out.
2 16oz cans baked beans, drained
14-1/2oz can green beans, drained
15oz can butter beans, drained
15-1/2oz can kidney beans, drained
16oz can chili beans, drained
1/4tsp hot pepper flakes
3/4C brown sugar, packed
The recipe calls for all to be put into a 2qt casserole dish. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes or until beans are tender. I had a busy day so I decided to cook my dish in a slow cooker on low heat for four hours. I also added some turkey smoked sausage to mine. Seriously, my husband ate two bowls at dinner time... and another at bedtime. Amazing (the meal and my hubby's eating habits!)
