I received my first Gooseberry Patch book from my grandmother when I was in high school.  It was about planning and decorating for Christmas, recipes and gift ideas and the style it was written in was very engaging.  Combining a number of my favorite things made it a sure-fire hit with me and from that day on I was hooked.

Gooseberry Patch was started back in 1984 by Delaware, Ohio, neighbors Vickie and Jo Ann.  They both had young kids and were looking for a way to do something they loved that allowed them to stay home with the kids and as they both shared a love of home cooking and making memories they created the idea of Gooseberry Patch.  What started as a catalog turned into their first cookbook in 1992 and they haven’t stopped  since.

One of their newest cookbooks is Quick & Easy Christmas.  It has over 220 “Christmas-y” recipes, most of which are in 30 minutes or less.  A feature of the recipes that I love is that they’re all submitted by Gooseberry Patch fans and readers so you are getting many time-tested, family-approved dishes to try.

The book also contains simple decorating and gift ideas, tips and tricks, and holiday quotes.  There is one at the bottom of nearly every page; at 218 pages that’s a lot of bonuses!  I also adore the country Christmas sketches and images that adorn most pages.  It really gets you into the Christmas spirit!  The last neat feature is a US to Canadian measurement conversion in the back of the book which I’m guessing could be quite handy!

For more information on Gooseberry Patch – and notices about fund-raising opportunities, sales, contests, free recipes and more – you can find them on Facebook, watch them on YouTube and follow them on Twitter.
