I love Gooseberry Patch cookbooks. No, I mean it - I love them. I started collecting them about six years ago right before the birth of my second son. In a way, they're like my children to me. I don't know how many I have. I think it would be dangerous to know the truth because then I might have to tell the truth - admit to an addiction.
If you're not familiar with Gooseberry Patch cookbooks, you may want to try one out. Not one of mine, mind you. You would have to get your own. These books are great for the beginning or home cook like myself. The recipes are submitted by people from all over the country. Most of the recipes are easy and comforting.
The fall and Christmas books come with heartwarming stories of family and tradition. I devour these books like novels and they always succeed in putting me in the mood for fall festivals, trick-or-treating, Thanksgiving, and decorating for the holidays.
Later in my blog, I will introduce you to more of my cookbooks. I hope you'll find a new cookbook or two or twenty to add to your collection.
