September 21, 2010

CHAPPAQUA, N.Y., Sept. 21 /PRNewswire/ — Mealtime memories hold a special place in our hearts – the aroma of a Sunday stew, the sight of an apple pie cooling on the counter, the sounds of a holiday table. We also cherish the family recipes that made those meals possible. Gooseberry Patch Keepsake Cookbook: Treasured heirloom recipes from our family to yours (Oxmoor House) celebrates meals and memories with 200 time-tested, classic recipes handed down by Gooseberry Patch family and friends.

Keepsake Cookbook is a must-have for every kitchen. The perfect gift for a shower, wedding, holiday, graduation, or new home, the cookbook presents everyday and special occasion recipes in an easy-to-use format. Photos, tips, and quotes bring each recipe to life. Each recipe is introduced with a banner heading that calls out a suggested use: make-ahead, kid-friendly, quick and easy, and more. The Keepsake Cookbook includes 50 blank pages for adding personal recipes to create a family heirloom that can be handed down from generation to generation.

The vibrant on-line Gooseberry Patch community, fostered by Gooseberry co-founders Jo Ann Martin and Vickie Hutchins, contributed their most treasured recipes for the Keepsake Cookbook. From standards like Easy Chicken Pot Pie and Red Velvet Cake to contemporary dishes such as Fiesta Beef Fajitas and Roasted Veggie Panini, the recipes define today’s American home-cooking. A book with classic, straightforward recipes for family meals is the staple of every cookbook shelf.

Jo Ann and Vickie started Gooseberry Patch in 1984 as a mail order business. They put recipes into their catalog to add interest and found that customers not only held onto the catalogs but also contributed their own treasured recipes. Early pioneers of social media, Jo Ann and Vickie connected with their community to build their successful cookbook business. Today, with over 200 cookbooks featuring hand-picked, family-friendly recipes, Gooseberry Patch is serving its third generation of customers, with tens of thousands of followers on Facebook, YouTube, Gooseberry Patch’s blog and Twitter.
