Gooseberry Patch Quick and Easy Christmas Cookbook Giveaway and Review


Gooseberry Patch Quick and Easy Christmas Cookbook provides the solution, featuring quick & easy homestyle dishes that can be prepared in 30 minutes or less, or with 8 or fewer ingredients.

They have simplified the season, with lots of easy recipes and tips for crowd-pleasing Christmas feasts and no-stress New Year's Eve entertaining. Plus, they've sprinkled in plenty of heartwarming holiday memories and clever tips for natural holiday decorating and easy-to-make gifts. So this year, spend more time celebrating with family and friends, and less time in the kitchen.


This book is full of 209 recipes and many illustrations and tips. It is spiral bound so it will lay flat on your counter making it easy to read as you make the recipes. Chapters include Breakfast and Brunch, Snacks and Appetizers, Soups, Sides and Salads, Mains, Desserts and more.



Last night for dinner I made the Cheesy Rice and Ham (with broccoli florets) by Robin Arnold of Fort Worth, Tx on page136. It's an easy casserole using cook rice, diced ham, shredded cheese, warmed milk and eggs, then I threw in some veggies for good measure. It was perfect for our busy night, quick to make and best of all it was good. It reminded us of another casserole I make that is similar.

Anyways, I will be giving a copy of Gooseberry Patch Quick and Easy Christmas to one of you and I really hope that it will arrive before Christmas so you can use it.

Find them on YouTube, Facebook and Twitter.

we have alot of family get togethers during Christmas. What makes it easier is to have the meals potluck style. We usually designate certain people to bring certain items. It's always great and we eat way too much!!

I prep what I can the day before. Also, my mom helps me a lot by cooking the turkey. :)

To make things a little easier, I make the longer cooking items ahead of time and freeze them. Potatoes and butternut squash get boiled and mashed and put into recloseable bags. I also parbake rolls and breads and freeze them.

Do not hesitate to make the meal a potluck! Stick to the basics and remember that healthy alternatives are appreciated. Loaded potato recipes can contain the calories normally apportioned to an entire meal. Consider using some broth vs heavy cream.

I let my MIL cook whatever she wants, then I fill in the gaps--that way she gets to feel like she is running the show and I have less work!!! :)

Team work! We're all volunteer to make a certain part of the dinner. It's not stressful, and we enjoy doing it. (cnfc800@gmail.com)
