    Tasty Cookbook just in time for the Holidays! *recipe included*

    I LOVE purchasing Gooseberry Patch cookbooks on the NOOK. Actually, NOOKcolor is even better because these "101" type cookbooks have tasty pictures of all the recipes just like if you owned the paper copy of the cookbook.

    I love that I can take the recipe right to the store with me and get what I need when I have my Nook.

    This 101 Christmas Recipes cookbook by Gooseberry Patch is just the book that I was looking for to help me prepare for my annual Christmas Open House. We host one every year and I always add in new dips and sweets. I have a few that will always be served but for the most part I enjoy new recipe hunting for this occasion.

    Here are the chapters in this book and some of my favorite recipes:

    *Holiday Open House- Jalapeno Cheese Spread, Greek Spread (heads up Open House Guest I am making this one for sure), Gingered Coconut Chicken Fingers, Garlic-Romano Dipping Sauce, Chocolate Eggnog,(yep making this one, too) and Cranberry & Blue Cheese Ball.

    *Snow Fun- Christmas Eve Soup, Ham & Swiss Cheese Rolls (yum), Mexican Albondigas Soup, Pizzawiches, Twiced-Baked Sweet Potatoes and Tomato Bisque.

    *Christmas Day- Apple-Glazed Pork Chops, Bruschetta Chicken Bake and Fire & Spice Baked Ham.

    *Sweets of the Season- Graham Pralines (making these for sure), Peanut Butter Fudge (I make this but I'm trying this new recipe), Raspberry-Marshmallow Cookie Pizza, Buckeyes, Christmas Crunch, GiGi's Cranberry Cobbler (yum), Peppermint Snowballs, Minty Candy Canes (From Jen @ Gooseberry Patch), Gumdrop cookies (very cute) and Lemon Icebox Cookies

    I do love the Index on my Nook with all the recipes in the book. They are broken into sections such as Appetizers, Beverages, Breakfast & Brunch,etc. The wonderful thing is each recipe has a link that once clicked it will take you right to the recipe in the book. Love it!

    One of the recipe worth trying is Peppermint Punch. Here it goes:

    Peppermint Punch

    1 quart peppermint ice cream, softened
    1 cup milk
    2 liters gingerale, chilled
    Garnish: peppermint sticks, finely crushed or whole

    In a large punch bowl, blend together ice cream and milk; stir gently. Slowly add ginger ale; stir until combined. Moisten rims of glasses with water and dip into finely crushed candy. Serve with peppermint sticks stirrers, if desired. Serves 8-10.

    If you are looking for new tasty recipes for the up and coming holidays this is a good one to get! You can't go wrong with 101 Christmas Recipes by Gooseberry Patch! I've yet to find one of their cookbook that I didn't like. This one is wonderful with all the photos on my NOOKcolor.

    The recipes are great but the nook layout makes it difficult to read. I should have bought a hard copy.
