I'm so excited!

Okay, you probably can't read the letter at all, but maybe you recognize the Gooseberry Patch symbol at the top?  About a month ago, I received an email from Gooseberry Patch asking about one of my recipes and that they would like to feature it in an upcoming cookbook.  This weekend, I got the letter in the mail that made it official!

My, "Sweet Pepper Sausage Bake" recipe will be included in their upcoming cookbook, "Foolproof Family Recipes" coming out in June of 2014.  Totally made me day, and to celebrate, I added the recipe below.

On a side note, we finally have all of our crops in and for the most part it was a great harvest.  No accidents, no major repairs and everyone did their part and more.  Thank you to all the farmers out there who work day (and sometimes most of the night) to help feed the world, but mostly, for doing something they love!

Make it a great week everyone!

Sweet Pepper Sausage Bake

(for pictures, visit:
4 medium potatoes, peeled and cubed
1 medium sized onion
1 bag of sweet peppers, cleaned and sliced
1 package of skinless smoked sausage
Olive Oil
Salt and pepper

Peel, wash and cube the potatoes. Wash of the peppers and slice them lengthwise as thick or thin as you want them. Do the same with the onions. Slice the sausage into bite size pieces. Put all ingredients in a large bowl and coat with 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Mix well. Line a 9x13 pan with aluminum foil and add 1 tablespoon of olive oil to the aluminum foil. Pour the ingredients of the bowl on the sheet of aluminum foil, making sure everything is evenly coated in the olive oil. Sprinkle salt and pepper over the top and cover with another layer of aluminum foil sealing the top and bottom pieces together. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes. Serve.

  1. So happy for you, Lis!! Want to do a story about this now for the paper ... or wait until the book comes out? Would like to share with readers. 2014 is already shaping up to be an exciting year. I wrote a novel and it is coming out in late winter! Congrats!
