More About Gooseberry Patch
Back in 1984, we were two moms living next door to each other in the little town of Delaware, Ohio. Since our kids were still little, we were looking for a way to do what we loved and stay home with them too. We had always shared a love of home cooking and making memories with family & friends and so, after many a conversation over the backyard fence, Gooseberry Patch was born.
We put together our first catalog at our kitchen tables and from that very first mailing, we found an immediate connection with our customers. It wasn’t long before we began receiving letters, photos and recipes from these new friends. In 1992, we published our very first cookbook, compiled from hundreds of these recipes and, the rest, as they say, is history. As the children grew, so did their "little" business. They now have their own building in the country, filled to the brim with kitchenware, gourmet goodies, enamelware, bowls and their own very successful line of cookbooks, and calendars.
Gooseberry Patch currently resides in Delaware, in the state of Ohio.

Reviews - What do customers think about Fall, Family & Friends Cookbook (Gooseberry Patch)?
A good cookbook! May 9, 2008
I bought this cookbook and was pleasantly surprised with the recipes. There is something for everyone in this cook book, and the recipes are simple and cover many different things. The recipes are definitely Fall/comfort-food themed.
A Perfect Title--Meals ADULTS Will Enjoy Too! Aug 18, 2007
So many times the emphasis in these types of books is on meals that will appeal to smaller children. So if you're past the age of twelve, your tastebuds will be cringing at all the sugar and bland combinations. This book includes many more receipes for a palate that enjoys spices, less usualcombinations of foods--yet still doable and family friendly. Several good brunch ideas--including clever breads and make-aheads. This is a good go-to book for feeding families without making too many demands on the cook or embarassing adults who are used to more sophisticated fare.
One of their best! Mar 16, 2007
I love these cookbooks and quite frankly, REALLY wanted this one because of the cover. Silly, I know, but it's true! Anyway, got a coupon from a local fabric shop so I got this one for a great price and I'm SO glad! I still haven't stopped using it. The breakfast recipes in this book are nothing short of FABULOUS! These are serious, down-on-the-farm, feed all the boys recipes! You certainly won't walk away hungry after eating any of them. There are wonderful casseroles for breakfast, gingerbread pancakes, and wonderful breads. This cookbook has now become my favorite for more thn just the cover. It's just wonderful. Highly, highly recommend!
A Wonderful cookbook! Jan 11, 2007
I just love the Gooseberry Cookbooks and have several of them. This one is definitely a winner and I can highly recommend it. It lives up to its' title, as it is filled with great recipes for get-togethers, especially for Fall and comfort food at its' best.
Good set of down home simple recipies Nov 7, 2006
What I find most interesting in looking at a new cookbook, is finding new recipies that you know will taste good because they are something close to what you already have in your bag of standards.
For instance, on page 57 of this book they have a recipie for 'Oh-So-Cheesy Chili Dip'. I've made something very similar to this, but used a different set of cheeses. Now I'm waiting for another excuse to go try this. I do find in looking at a recipie like this that I will have in irresistible urge to modify it. The chili dip, for instance calls out for some more spices to make it a bit hotter. And it didn't say that you should use chili without beans. Hmmmm! Maybe I should try it once with chili with beans.
This is a homespun looking cookbook, kind of like what you'd expect from your local church. The recipies have been contributed by people from all over the country. They are printed in a lay-flat binding so it won't flop over in the middle of preparing something.
Are the recipies what you'd like, there's no way I can tell without listing each and every one. Let's just say that there's a wide variety of everything from appetizers to desserts. If there's a single thing that I'd say about these recipies is that most of them are very simple, few strange spices, no complex procedures. Good things to do with your kid as a joint project.
