From the Author

Enjoy this recipe from Fall, Family & Friends Cookbook.

Hot Caramel Apple Cider


Put it on before going out for a fall hayride or an afternoon of apple picking...the aroma will fill the whole house!
1/2 gal. apple cider
1/2 c. brown sugar, packed
1-1/2 t. cider vinegar
1 t. vanilla extract
1 4-inch cinnamon stick
6 whole cloves
1 orange, sliced
Optional: 1/2 c. apple jack liquor
Garnish: 1/3 c. caramel ice cream topping

Combine all ingredients except topping in a slow cooker. Cover; cook on low setting for 5 to 6 hours. Strain; discard spices and orange. Serve in mugs, drizzling a teaspoonful of topping into each mug. Serves 16.

You probably don't get many e-mails or letters from men, but I just wanted to drop a note...your website is GREAT! I am really impressed and love the creative artwork and the design of the site. I enjoy looking at the art, but I must admit, the products and prices are great also. Keep doing what you're doing...you do it well!

I received my Gooseberry Patch order that I placed a day or so ago and was totally impressed with your great service and especially how it was packed for shipping. When I opened it, it was like I was receiving a gift rather an "order." You certainly know how to give superior service and treat your customers with care and generosity.

I just wanted to drop you a note and share a new family tradition. We recently moved into a new home and the day I unpacked my Gooseberry Patch books is the day it truly felt like home. Thanks for all the wonderful recipes, decorating ideas and crafts. Whatever home I happen to be in, really feels like home once it has some Gooseberry Patch touches and goodies to eat.

I am an avid collector of Gooseberry Patch books. I love them all. My less than stellar review of this book centers on one basic problem. Repeating recipes! This book has recipes that already appear in other Gooseberry Patch volumes. The different name does not a different recipe make. In fact, one recipe in the book appear in no less than two of their other books. I wish they would develop a better screening process for what recipes go into the books.

Since receiving this cookbook 2 weeks ago I have made over 10 dishes from it. For me that's nearly a miracle! Most cookbooks I own only offer a few recipes that are appealing to me or sound good enough to put in the effort that's required for it. Fall, Family & Friends is filled to the brim with recipes that don't only sound delicious but are simple and straight foward. I haven't seen an ingredient yet that I couldn't find at any grocery store across the country. That means no trips across town to a speciality super market for some crazy spice or fruit that's only available 3 weeks out of the year.
Obviously these aren't culinary masterpieces or gastromincal deliciacies but they are what your average suburban woman/man craves during the crisp Fall months (and beyond). It's the food equivilant of a cozy blanket or fuzzy socks, familiar and comforting.

Some of my favorites so far are the Hot Bacon Swiss Dip on page 61, Sugary Cinnamon Roll-ups on page 36, Instant Coffee Bars on page 52, Loaded Mashed Potato Casserole on page 92, Autumn Spice Bread on page 118, Chicken Netti on page 155, and Pumpkin Bread Puddin' on page 196.

The book is divided into 8 sections:
Favorite Fall Sippers
Farm-Fresh Breakfasts
Hay-Day Appetizers
Farmstand-Fresh Sides and Salads
Country Style Soups and Breads
Slowly Simmered Flavors of Fall
A Thankful Heart:Harvest Main Dishes
Autumn Treats

The crafts, decorations, and presentation ideas at the bottom of each page are cute, fun and even helpful. I like the recommendation of coating the edges of a jack-o-latern with petroleum jelly to keep them looking "fresh" longer.

This cookbook really captures the bucolic essence of Autumn. I'm looking foward to some chilly night in late October and curling up with a cup of the Smoked Sausage Potato Soup (page 126) and reading this cookbook again!

What I find most interesting in looking at a new cookbook, is finding new recipies that you know will taste good because they are something close to what you already have in your bag of standards.

For instance, on page 57 of this book they have a recipie for 'Oh-So-Cheesy Chili Dip'. I've made something very similar to this, but used a different set of cheeses. Now I'm waiting for another excuse to go try this. I do find in looking at a recipie like this that I will have in irresistible urge to modify it. The chili dip, for instance calls out for some more spices to make it a bit hotter. And it didn't say that you should use chili without beans. Hmmmm! Maybe I should try it once with chili with beans.

This is a homespun looking cookbook, kind of like what you'd expect from your local church. The recipies have been contributed by people from all over the country. They are printed in a lay-flat binding so it won't flop over in the middle of preparing something.

Are the recipies what you'd like, there's no way I can tell without listing each and every one. Let's just say that there's a wide variety of everything from appetizers to desserts. If there's a single thing that I'd say about these recipies is that most of them are very simple, few strange spices, no complex procedures. Good things to do with your kid as a joint project.
