Wonderful book for Fall!,
This review is from: Gooseberry Patch Halloween (Paperback)
Gooseberry Patch Halloween is a gorgeous new book from the ladies at Gooseberry Patch and is published by Oxmoor House. It is very professionally designed and vivid, bright photos abound throughout. The recipes and ideas show Autumn's beautiful bounty of color and the rich flavours of Fall.
There are ideas on how to choose and decorate your pumpkins, with many different kinds of embellishments. Plus, there are tons of Autumn recipes, from the fun and creative, like mummy hot dogs, to updated classics, like cranberry waldorf salad. Gooseberry Patch Halloween also includes several ideas for themed parties, like a Film Festival and a Halloween Cookie Swap party (not just for Christmas!), plus several others. There are scrumptious recipes to go along with each party theme.
Ideas for masks and face painting are also included, along with fun, Halloween activities like a bean bag toss using decorated bean bags. There are some "quick tricks" at the end using pre-made ingredients to make fast treats and decorations, such as witches' hats and haunted houses.
Gooseberry Patch Halloween is filled with over 200 recipes and ideas to make Halloween time a special celebration for your friends and family, and is also just such a pleasure to look through! Highly recommended!
