Features recipes for Christmas dishes, instructions for homemade gifts, and stories about favorite memories of the holiday.
Vickie Hutchins and Jo Ann Martin, the two principals of the Gooseberry Patch enterprise, specialize in compilation cookbooks (using recipes selected by them from among those sent in by readers, whose names and brief comments appear with their recipes). This gives the book a homey, old-fashioned feel, which is reinforced by the simple line drawings (no photographs); you might feel as if your neighbors had all arrived bringing offerings for a potluck. There are recipes for soups and sandwiches, coffee cakes, cookies, candies, and desserts, but the centerpiece chapter is the "Farmhouse Christmas Dinner," and it will more than cover your needs for the big meal. Most of the recipes are not complicated and do not require exotic ingredients. The final chapter is devoted to handmade crafts; you can learn how to make simple non-food gifts and stocking stuffers.
