Out of all the Gooseberry Patch cookbooks that I have owned, the Christmas cookbooks are my favorite. There is something about the way that Gooseberry Patch cookbook can make you feel wrapped up in a warm blanket with a hot cup of cocoa in front of a fire.
I don’t know if it is the fact that the recipes are reader submitted and seem totally doable.
Maybe it is the little tips and tricks to help you put on a holiday worthy of a magazine spread.
Or maybe it is the illustrations that remind you of a time when Christmas meant ripping the paper off the presents and then spending the day snacking on foods made by family while a loved one helped you take all the toys out of that ridiculous packaging.
Whatever it is, Gooseberry Patch knows how to do Christmas and the newest Christmas cookbook is no exception.
Hometown Christmas has over 190 pages of recipes to help you pull of the perfect Christmas holiday for your friends and family. The book starts with recipes that are perfect for a breakfast with Santa: pancakes, compotes, coffee cake and more. The Sledding Party Warmers and Old Fashioned Christmas Dinner sections have soups, salads and main dishes. Open House and Tree-Trimming Treats shares lots of dishes to take with you to that holiday party. The book also has a slow cooker section full of easy throw together in a few minutes and cook all day recipes.
Each recipe that I have made is easy, full of ingredients that I had at home (well, mostly!) and fun to make. I am looking forward to continuing to put this book through its paces as the holidays keep creeping up on us!
Last week, I shared my favorite recipe from the book. My children and I had the best time in the kitchen making these easy homemade soft pretzels. Take a look and try them out for yourself!
