Gooseberry Patch cookbook Good-for-You Everyday Meals giveaway and review

 I try to eat healthier, but it doesn't always happen that way.
My rule has always been to eat in moderation. But, with the recipes in this cookbook, I don't have to worry so much. I know that I can have a good hearty meal with healthier ingredients.
It wouldn't hurt to have an extra serving from time to time.
I love meals like that!

In this new Gooseberry Patch   
Good-for-You Everyday Meals cookbook
you will find recipes that will ease your mind 
knowing that you are feeding your family 
delicious and nutritious meals. Meals containing ingredients such as....
  Quinoa, barley, flax seed, protein foods, whole wheat pastas, 

and fresh, frozen and organic fruits and veggies.

The contents in a cookbook is always the selling point for me.
I knew this cookbook was another real winner when I looked at the chapters listed.
I was sold even more when I browsed through the recipes....

Mom's Best Orange Muffins, Garden Bounty Egg Bake,
Healthy Strawberry Drink, Laurel's Nutty Granola,
Hearty Hamburger Stew, Citrus & Beet Spinach Salad,
Savory Barley-Mushroom Bake, Cherry Tomato Hummus Wraps, 
and Lemony-Fresh Dill Dip

I had a hard time choosing the recipes to prepare for you.
So, I asked my family what they were in the mood was it.
I found one of the yummiest recipes for Tilapia we've ever had. And of course I needed a veggie to go along with it and that's where the potato wedges come in. 

Let's start with the new seasoning recipe for my potatoes...

No-Salt Seasoning
submitted by Barb Rudyk    Vermillion, Alberta
1 T garlic powder
1 T onion powder
1 T dry mustard
1 T paprika
1 tsp dried thyme
1 tsp dried basil
1 tsp cayenne pepper, or to taste
1/2 tsp pepper

Mix together all ingredients and place in a shaker jar.
Makes about 5 tablespoons.

This seasoning was perfect for Lori's Tater Wedges!
