Gooseberry Patch is one of those companies that, once you discover them and really get to know their products and their warmth, you are a forever customer. That’s how I feel, anyway! I’ve always loved Gooseberry Patch cookbooks (that love came from my parents), but now I love everything on their website and I’m always oohing and aahing over something new I’ve found. Like this, check this out:

Okay, how cute would it be to make animal pancakes for your little one? You can’t tell me they wouldn’t taste better than regular pancakes. ;-)

About Gooseberry Patch:

Gooseberry Patch is a veritable treasure trove! Everything you need to make your home homier and your holidays more fun can be found there including calendars, coupon organizers, every kind of cookbook you can possibly want, kitchenware, gourmet foods, quilts, and more!

I can think of something every woman in my family, old or young, would absolutely love at Gooseberry Patch. It’s the perfect place to buy gifts, and I’m sure any woman would be thrilled to have a Gooseberry Patch gift certificate (that’s for you, men).

Gooseberry Patch Books are in high demand nowadays. And why not? They are extremely well-made, full of beautiful photos, and contain easy-to-follow, delicious recipes and craft tutorials! Every home should have a collection, in my opinion.

Review and Thoughts:
Gooseberry Patch generously sent me their new 101 Christmas Recipes cookbook. Now I had seen Gooseberry Patch cookbooks before, but until I actually had my own family to cook for, I didn’t realize how great they are. I. Absolutely. LOVE. This. Cookbook. Seriously! I can’t believe I’m raving here, but I am. I’m impressed. Everything in this cookbook is totally doable, and this is the kitchen klutz talking. I get overwhelmed easily and that’s why I don’t own many cookbooks. Normally I look around online for the simplest-looking recipe I can find and just hope it’s a decent recipe. That’s not happening anymore, though. I am bound and determined to collect the Gooseberry Patch cookbooks from now on.

Okay, details.

What I love:

  • Large, beautiful photos of delicious food on each page. I am a visual person and don’t like cookbooks without pictures. This is the best one I’ve come across so far – the photography will have you drooling!
  • Easy, non-overwhelming recipes abound – and they look SO good! They aren’t overly common, either. I feel like I could make any of the recipes easily and possibly appear to be a woman who slaved over her stove for hours to get everything just right.
  • A wide variety of recipes including main dishes for every time of day, desserts, holiday beverages hot and cold, side dishes, and hors d’oeuvres (I have no idea if I spelled that right). If I ever had to host a Christmas dinner (heaven forbid), I could probably do a very decent job. Just don’t tell my mom.
  • This cookbook is easy to flip through and lies flat while you’re following the recipe – gotta love ring-bound!

What I don’t love:

Um, nothing. Noooothing.


I highly recommend 101 Christmas Recipes by Gooseberry Patch! This is a beautiful book that retails for only $14.99. In my opinion, a great price.
