Without cookbooks, home chefs would have nowhere to turn with their most pressing food-related questions, such as how many cups are in a quart or how to milk a coconut without getting bitten. Increase your cooking competence with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of cookbooks, calendars, and more from Gooseberry Patch.

Specializing in community-style cookbooks compiled via user-submission, Gooseberry Patch founders Vickie and JoAnn personally select each enticing recipe to pass on to cooking enthusiasts and family tables everywhere. The 101 Homestyle Favorites Cookbook ($14.95) covers all categories of comfort food, tucking tummies into a cocoon of contentment, and Summer in the Country ($16.95) features more than 200 warm-weather-favored flavors, including chapters on feasting al fresco and why grits taste better when plucked straight from the tree. Beginner chefs can test the boiling cooking waters with 5 Ingredients or Less ($16.95) or Ready, Set, Eat ($16.95), honed from the time-honored tradition of combining sharp utensils and hot surfaces with speeds.

In addition to offering delicious din-spiration, partial proceeds from Recipes for Kindness ($7.95) and Recipes for Saying Thanks ($7.95) will benefit hunger-relief charities.

For deft decorators, Gooseberry Patch also peddles a plethora of craft books, such as Creative Memory Keeping ($9.95) or Trash to Treasure ($4.95)––a guide to sprucing up secondhand finds into mosaic table tops, wind chimes, makeshift shrines to Patrick Bergin, and more. Also available is an array of calendars and organizers, which make great gifts for college students and meticulous moms, and provide a fool-proof way for anyone to remember what day it isn't.

Gooseberry Patch

They say that home is where the heart is, and, in 1984, next-door neighbours Vickie and Jo Ann couldn’t have agreed with that statement more. Both moms with young children, the two women dreamed of staying home and caring for their kids, while also doing what they loved—sharing with others their joint passion for cooking. A kitchen-table discussion led to the foundation of Gooseberry Patch, and their first cookbook, released more than 25 years ago, featured many recipes borrowed from family members and friends.

Gooseberry Patch continues in its original tradition of collecting home recipes, but now their recipe ideas come from across North America. An active user base contributes to cookbooks covering topics such as baking, seasonal dishes and desserts, and kid-friendly dishes that children can make for themselves or with the help of a Barbie with arms bendy enough to hold a spoon. The library of cookbooks is complemented by calendars that similarly showcase recipes, help clients organize their holiday or party planning, or provide a foolproof way for anyone to remember what day it isn't.
