Garfield GBP Cookbook Giveaway!!

Hey all!

When have I not hopped on here to post that life is crazy?  Well guess what?  Yep.  Still crazy! 

We've finished up school, hubby's out of school now, kiddos are getting 4-H projects finished up for next month and for the last month I've felt pretty cruddy.  I'm on the upswing, but our oldest daughter is in the operating room as we speak. 

Our Rebekah has had scoliosis since she was 5.  She's 14 1/2.  Kiddos usually get scoliosis when they are around the age of 11 or so.  She's worn a back brace since she was 5, too.  She's stopped growing (at a beautiful 6 feet tall!) and can now have the corrective surgery needed to straighten her spine and keep her lungs and heart healthy...and no more back braces!  Her amazing team of doctors, nurses, and staff are all taking care of her right now.  She went back a few hours ago and we have at least three more hours to wait.  Prayers would be appreciated right now!

So...while I wait (and lean on the Lord for patience and peace) I thought I might as well get this cookbook review done that I was supposed to do two weeks ago when I was sicker than a dog.  (Sorry Gooseberry Patch!  They are so forgiving!  Love them!)

So Gooseberry Patch came out with a Garfield cookbook!  For real! I grew up on Garfield!  I had Garfield stickers, paper, stuffed animals, etc., etc..  This cookbook is full of all sorts of fun Garfield drawings, comics, and of course some recipes that would definitely be Garfield approved! 

The great folks at Gooseberry Patch were kind enough to give me a cookbook to giveaway to one of you lucky readers! 

Here's the recipe my Rebekah chose and made for the kiddos!  (Read down yonder for the giveaway details!)

Pumpkin Flapjacks

1 c. all-purpose flour
2 T. dark brown sugar, packed
2 t. baking powder
1 t. pumpkin pie spice
1 c. canned pumpkin
1 c. milk
2 eggs, separated
1/3 cup oil
Garnish:  butter/ maple syrup

In a large bowl, combine flour, brown sugar, baking powder and spice; stir well and set aside.  In a separate bowl, blend together pumpkin, milk and egg yolks.  Add pumpkin mixture to flour mixture; stir until smooth.  In a deep bowl, beat egg whites with an electric mixer on high speed until stiff peaks form.  Gently fold egg whites into pumpkin mixture.  Ladle batter by 1/3 cupfuls onto a hot greased griddle over medium heat.  Cook pancakes until bubbly on top and edges are slightly dry; turn and cook on other side.  Serve warm with butter and syrup.  Makes about one dozen.

Note:  We weren't sure if the oil listed was meant for the griddle or the recipe.  They tasted much better in the recipe.  Just FYI.  *giggle*


It got a thumb's up from the little guy!

I absolutely love Gooseberry Patch and I'm so glad they teamed up with Garfield between his naps! The recipes look so easy with ingredients I already have in my kitchen. The pumpkin flapjacks look so velvety, they'd be perfect for an autumn saturday morning breakfast. Thank you for sharing the recipe, and the book! qqueen3340@att.net

Glad you're feeling a bit better and hoping your daughter did great with her surgery. Adding her and your family to my prayers.

My favorite thing about Garfield is his attitude. My son even at 29 is still a Garfield lover. He grew up watching and enjoying Garfield and if I won I'd give this book to him.

I always thought "how odd that a cat would love lasagna as much as Garfield does" but that cat could sure make it disappear as fast as his paws could fly!I love the way he is always pulling a fast one on John and seeming so innocent all the while! I'm glad he slowed down enough for Gooseberry Patch to get him to pose for a few shots for his new cookbook! Thanks GP and Garfield. qqueen3340@att.net
