Help Me Decide! {We have a winner!}

I was so fortunate to recently be contacted by the good folks from Gooseberry Patch to review their latest cookbook, Big Book of Homecooking.
If any of you follow me on facebook, you know I am a huge fan of Gooseberry Patch and their books. So when I got this one in the mail, I squealed like a little piggy. I immediately sat down at my kitchen table and started flipping through the book trying to decide which recipes I wanted to make and share with you fine folks.
The pictures in this book are drool-worthy! And let me tell ya, this is no easy choice. I'd love to share all of the recipes with you but I've had to narrow it down to four. I want y'all to help me choose a fifth recipe to make. Desserts are my weakness and I'm really struggling trying to pick a second dessert to share. So, here are the choices. Please choose one! I'll keep this open until next Wednesday, Aug. 31st Also, stay tuned for an exciting giveaway!

WE HAVE A WINNER!!!

Thank you so much to everyone who voted in the poll! We had a total of 696 votes cast for this - wow! It was a neck and neck race the entire time. Only 10 votes separated the top 3 choices, but alas, only one can win! The dessert I will be making, chosen by you is......

APPLE BROWN BETTY


Stay tuned for the recipe and pictures. I'm hoping to get it made and posted on the blog here by next Friday! Bread Pudding with Rum Sauce came in a close second, followed by the Vanilla Wafer Cake and Red Velvet came in last. If I have time to make some of the other desserts and photograph them, I will definitely try to do so in the near future.  Thank you again to everyone who voted!

Lucky girl! I voted for Apple Brown Betty, but they all sound scrumptious. I love Gooseberry Patch!

Oh they all sound mouth watering!
I voted for Apple Brown Betty just because I have never made one yet :)

They all sound scrumptious....but the Apple Brown Betty REALLY sounds great for autumn.

I'm always looking for 'The perfect Bread Pudding' recipe, so I chose that one. It's hard to find 'the best'. I'd like to find one, so I can stop hunting! :D
Looking forward to which one it will be.

I went with the bread pudding. My pa just loves it - seriously has to try it everywhere he goes - and I've never made it before. I'd love to send my grandma a recipe and tell her: "Try this one! It's amazing!"
