Recipes: Gooseberry Patch Keepsake Cookbook

Have I told you that I’m pretty much obsessed with cookbooks? I especially love them when they have no-frills, cooked-with-love recipes that remind me of something my grandma would have whipped up for me. Such is the case with the new Gooseberry Patch Keepsake Cookbook, which has more than 200 family recipes (there is even a section to add in your own family recipes). The book is set to be released on the 21st.
