It is getting close to Christmas and if you still need to decorate or to find gifts for those on your list, Gooseberry Patch Christmas all through the house could be the book you need. From baking cookies to making Christmas decorations, this book has it all. For those of you who do not know, Gooseberry Patch started with two friends that decided to try a mail order business. They now have many books and a catalog with about 400 products. This book reminds me of a catalog with all of the craft projects as well as delicious recipes on every page. I am invited to a Christmas party and I thought I would take an appetizer. The pineapple ball sounds awfully good and easy too. It is made with green pepper, pineapple, onion, and cream cheese. I also like the giftable goodies section of the book. Giftable goodies are just mixes that you make from your kitchen. The book gives you a recipe for the mix, labels with the recipes’ directions, as well as pictures showing how to package the mix to give to someone special. So, if you are still looking for that special Christmas touch for your home, or a new recipe to try, come to the library and check it out. If you are interested in a catalog, you can go on their website, www.gooseberrypatch.com request a catalog and look at all their fun products.
