First of all, I must say I DO NOT get paid to endorse any products mentioned on this blog. I find things I like and simply share them with YOU- so that you can join in on the fun!
Secondly, I have to say I love, love, love Gooseberry Patch products. Even if you are a beginning cook, you simply can not go wrong with the recipes in these cookbooks. You will probably not be able to limit yourself to owning just one- they're addicting!!
They've also been featured in the latest issue of Mary Jane's Farm magazine.
They've been in business a long time, and have gotten better and better. I can't resist their graphics- I love anything with a tiny gingham print!
The recipes I've made have ALL come out good! Like I said, you won't go wrong. Just make sure you use all the ingredients called for in the recipes. I have found with using ANYONE'S cookbooks, that it is essential to use what is called for to get the results you want. Substitutions don't work, unless there is a substitution mentioned in the recipe.
The best-est Carrot Cake EVER-- and I've been around a while, guys and dolls!! I made these this past summer and OH MAN!! It was the best I've ever had-- and easy to make. I did use Paula Deen's recipe for the cream cheese frosting: (Click on Paula Deen to go to the website for her recipe.) I made a full recipe because I made two cakes, which is a lot of frosting-- and I had some leftover to frost an 8 x 8 pan of brownies too.)
I give these cookbooks a 10-10-10 rating:
East to follow, don't use unusual, hard to find ingredients, pictures are great, there's little interesting notes and stories, and the food is GOOD!
