I was cruising around Facebook this morning and found out the wonderful ladies from Gooseberrypatch, selected a recipe I submitted to be in one of their cookbooks!....so I will be getting whatever cookbook they publish it in..how fun is that? This is the recipe that won....I think I've posted it before..

Salmon Party Log 

15-oz. can salmon, dark skin and bones removed
8-oz. pkg. cream cheese, softened
1 T. lemon juice
2 t. grated onion
1 t. horseradish
1/4 t. salt
1/2 c. chopped pecans
1/4 t. liquid smoke
3 T. chopped parsley

Mix the first 6 ingredients together; mix together well. Form mixture into a log. Mix chopped pecans, liquid smoke and parsley together well..cover the log with this mixture, rolling carefully. Let this sit a few hours in the fridge. Serve with your favorite crackers. Makes 12 servings.

They are always looking for new recipes so if you are on Facebook, please friend them and get in on the fun...Goosepatch cookbooks are so great..I have two I got for free...and have enjoyed them immensely....I just looked to see if the free ones were available but alas, no....

yesterday, I cooked up a batch of applesauce from the apples we got at Oak Glen...have more to do today plus as its cooler, make a apple cake.....the Just a Pinch Recipe Club has this one that looks really good..I have everything to make it except the Tang.....need to go to the store today anyway so will pick some up...
Blue Ribbon Apple Bundt Cake.....the recipe was submitting by a member...
3/4 c sugar
3 tsp orange flavored instant drink mix (like tang)
2 tsp cinnamon
3 c all purpose flour
2 c sugar
3 tsp baking powder
3 tsp orange flavored instant drink mix
1/2 tsp salt
1 c vegetable oil
1/2 c water
2 tsp vanilla extract
4 lg eggs
4 c apples, peeled and thinly sliced
2 c powdered sugar
1 Tbsp butter, softened

Heat oven to 350 F. Grease and flour a 12-cup Bundt pan
Combine streusel ingredients in a small bowl; set aside.
In a large bowl, combine all cake ingredients except apples. Pour 1/3 of batter (about 1 2/3 C) into Bundt pan. Layer 2 cups of apples over batter; sprinkle with half the streusel. Repeat layers with another 1/3 of batter, remaining apples and remaining streusel. End with remaining 1/3 of cake batter.
Bake for 65-75 minutes, until a toothpick comes out clean when tested. Cool in pan for 3 minutes, then invert onto a serving plate to cool completely.
When cake is cool, prepare glaze. In a small bowl, combine powdered sugar, butter and spice. Add milk one tbsp at a time until smooth and of drizzling consistency. Drizzle glaze over cooled cake.
