I have always loved Gooseberry Patch books because the recipes are tried, true and EASY! They have great tips and even heart warming stories inside. If you've never read a cook book cover to cover, you've never read a Gooseberry Patch Cook Book. I even once had a little mention in one! I thought in celebration, I would post a picture of me from last year's Country Living Fair, where I met the wonderful women behind The Patch, Vicki and Jo Ann! I also like that they are a local Columbus area company! PS: They did not pay me to say this.
