|I'm a Collector...|
I'm a collector of Gooseberry Patch cookbooks because I really like (most) of them. This one is no exception. It is filled with recipes that real people really cook, with ingredients you probably have on hand most of the time. It is rare to make one of these recipes and not have it turn out well.
And, I like this cookbook because it is readable. It's fun to sit down and read all the "Serve It Up With Style" suggestions, things like making herbal tea without even boiling water or creating personalized votives to brighten up dinnertime. Quick, easy, fun.
The book is not just dinner casseroles, either. It begins with breakfast and brunch, then has 5 more chapters, each devoted to a different main ingredient--poultry, seafood, beef, pork or vegetable. In the back, there are casserole and baking pan measurements, quick fix casseroles, basic lists for pantry and refrigerator and casserole equivalents (i.e, 1 medium potato = 1 cup). Another winner from Gooseberry Patch!
