Does anyone own any of their cookbooks?  I'm thinking about ordering a few, but just not sure if it's much of the same.  Thanks!

I have a lot of their paperback ones and one hardback. I think the recipes aren't anything that you probably couldn' find online or in other cookbooks. The thing that seems to set them apart is their layout style. The photos and illustrations are fun and I like their folksy discriptions. I enjoy cookbooks that have a "blurb" about the recipes. If you like that type of book you would probably like the Gooseberry Patch books.

I love my gooseberry patch cookbooks. They tend to have extra blurbs that pertain to either the recipes, or decorating, or "helpful hints" - and those tend to be as much fun to read as the recipes :-)  I also love their Hardbound Christmas books - I've gotten LOTS of Chistmas Gift ideas from them that MIL and GMIL have absolutely RAVED about! (And what DIL can't use those kinds of brownie points? <grin>)
