I recently read an article about Gooseberry Patch and how it came into existence. I thought it might be worth sharing especially since I love their cookbooks!
It all started with two neighbors who loved anything country. They didn't have computers at that time, so finding vintage or country items was difficult to say the least! They contemplated opening a store, but were afraid of the time it would take away from their families, so they started a mail-order business. Their warehouse was their garages and basements, and their work area was their kitchen.
They soon moved into another building because of business' growth and popularity. After sharing their favorite recipes, others became interested and started sending them their favorite recipes with stories to go behind it. Thus, the Gooseberry Patch cookbooks came about.
Their first cookbook was Old-Fashioned Country Christmas, published in 1992. Now they have an array of cookbooks with tasty treats and homemade flair!
Here are 2 free recipes from their website, www.gooseberrypatch.com which look fabulous!
