Family recipe collections make treasured gifts to pass from generation to generation. In Gooseberry Patch Keepsake Cookbook, families and friends hand down their most time-honored, cherished recipes to readers. From traditional favorites, such as Sunday Pork Roast, to blue ribbon desserts, such as Mile-High Lemon Meringue Pie, each of the 200 recipes is a trip down memory lane.
Readers can personalize their books by filling in their own family recipes on the 50 special pages provided. And the lay-flat, kitchen-friendly ring binder allows cooks to easily move added recipes into the correct chapter. Gooseberry Patch co-founders Jo Ann Martin and Vickie Hutchins even write in a few personal favorites of their own!
Tips, memories and quotes from recipe contributors are sprinkled throughout (along with whimsical illustrations), giving this collection a homespun feel. Banners highlight recipes that are kid-friendly, perfect for making ahead, quick and easy, or require five ingredients or less, as well as those appropriate for large crowds, holidays and potluck gatherings. A special chapter of gifts from the kitchen identifies recipes perfect for giving.
