Welcoming family & friends inside our warm & cozy kitchens is one of our favorite things about the holidays! We love the aroma of warm gingerbread cookies, the fresh scent of pine and mugs of homemade chocolatey cocoa. There’s such excitement as we count down the days until Christmas arrives...celebrate the holiday season with Christmas with Family & Friends!
Norwegian Pancakes topped with warm cinnamon-peach topping are yummy on a frosty morning, and friends who come to visit will enjoy bites of savory Bacon-Wrapped Chestnuts, steamy bowls of Wild Rice & Mushroom Soup and frosty Santa Claus Cranberry Punch. For Christmas dinner, try Rosemary-Garlic Turkey alongside Cranberry-Pecan Stuffing, Snowy White Mashed Potatoes and slices of Homemade Gingerbread Cake.
Everyone loves family-style casseroles, so Texas-Style Enchiladas and Ellie’s Layered Reuben Bake will be quick favorites you’ll serve again & again. Invite family & friends to come by for a cookie & cocoa get-together then visit, relax and enjoy the sweet treats of Christmastime. So welcome the season with family & friends. Bake cookies, make snow angels and enjoy the magic of the holiday...the time we look forward to all year! Hardcover, 224 pages. (9-1/4" x 6-1/2")
Back in 1984, Vickie Hutchins and Jo Ann Martin, next-door neighbors raising their families in the little town of Delaware, Ohio, started Gooseberry Patch. They were two moms with small children looking for a way to do what they loved and stay home with the kids too. They shared a love of home cooking and making memories with family & friends. After many a conversation over the backyard fence, Gooseberry Patch was born.
They put together the first catalog & cookbooks at their kitchen tables and packed boxes from the basement, enlisting the help of loved ones wherever they could. From that little family, Gooseberry Patch has grown to include an amazing group of creative folks who love cooking, decorating and creating as much as Vicki and Jo Ann. Hard to believe it's been over 25 years since those kitchen-table days.
Today, Gooseberry Patch is best known for homestyle, family-friendly cookbooks. They love hand-picking the recipes and are tickled to share their inspiration, ideas and more with you. One thing's for sure, they couldn't have done it without their friends all across the country. Whether you've been along for the ride from the beginning or are just discovering Gooseberry Patch, welcome to the family!
