    I always appreciate how Gooseberry Patch offers beautiful and creative ideas that are also actually doable. Gooseberry Patch Christmas Book 13 is not just a recipe book, but it also offers craft and decor suggestions that are perfect for the holidays. Of course, there are stunning photos that show the completed dishes and projects, as well as lovely Christmas scenes indoors and out. There are fourteen sections with all kinds of festive holiday ideas, from open houses to woodland decor to casseroles and delicious blue ribbon cakes.

    It also has lots of family favorites from their readers like Corn Casserole and Early Riser Breakfast Casserole or the holiday colored Cranberry Broccoli Salad. I was glad to see the chapter with treats that only use five to seven ingredients, like the Easiest Pumpkin Cupcakes with just five ingredients in it, plus the cream cheese frosting!

    All of the crafts would make excellent gifts and have full instructions and templates in back, from the sewing kits and aprons to a coiled rag basket. I can’t wait to start making the Snow Day Pillow that I saw in the Handmade Gift Area, with its adorable appliqued snowman and children making snow angels. And the Framed Button Tree is a perfect way to turn leftover buttons into a lovely decoration. I think it’s really nice to have fun things for the kids to do while I’m cooking and getting ready for guests and they have a section for Fun and Games for the kids, with lots of good ideas, including an darling Turtle Tic Tac Toe Toss.

    Gooseberry Patch really knows how to do Christmas and Gooseberry Patch Christmas Book 13 is no exception, with so many wonderful ideas to help me and my family have a warm and memorable holiday.

    I have all the Christmas books now and many, many of the other cookbooks! I have so many that the bookshelf is full! But I will be passing some of these along to my daughter soon…too many to keep here! She is a wonderful cook and a new mother so will find most of the recipes easy to prepare…Then someday, she will have them all if she wants them. I love the Gooseberry Patch cookbooks and illustrations in them, The hints, ideas, and recipes are wonderful. Have not tried one yet that has not been good!

    This review is from: Gooseberry Patch Christmas Book 13: Recipes, Projects, and Gift Ideas (Hardcover)
    Not much new for recipes, and I love to collect and try new holiday recipes, so I’ve sent the book back to Amazon due to the lack of new recipes. To be fair I have plenty of cookbooks to choose from so it’s getting more difficult to find something new.

    There are some creative and crafty gift ideas you can make, if you like crafting. The book is good for crafts and not so much for cooking.

    Recommend with caveats given.
