Cookbook Review: Quick and Easy Autumn by Goose Berry Patch

With a chill in the air and apples, pumpkins, and squash at their peak harvest, what better way to begin a new season than with some fall-friendly recipes?  Goose Berry Patch cookbooks are national best-sellers that have wonderful ideas and themes for the holidays. Capital Cooking was lucky enough to receive a copy of the Quick and Easy Autumn edition for review. 
*Over 200 fall recipes
 *Most recipes only require 8 ingredients or less
*Can be made in 30 minutes or less, perfect for the working professional or busy mom 
*Compiled from recipes submitted by people all over the U.S
*Fall ingredients like cinnamon, apples, and pumpkin used in almost all recipes
*Easy to follow directions
*Stories, cooking/decorating suggestions, and cute quotes throughout the book
The cookbook is divided into 6 chapters, great for Halloween and Thanksgiving cooking or all year-round.
Below is a list of the chapters with a few recipes within them:
Breakfast and Brunch: scrumptious apple pancakes, upside-down apple coffee cake, apple cider syrup, and brown-sugar glazed bacon 
Snack and Appetizers: party popcorn balls, peanut butter-banana roll-up, spicy-sweet pumpkin pie dip, and goblin good snack mix
Soups, Sides and Salads: savory pumpkin soup, fisilli garden salad, gingersnap baked beans, and spicy squash soup
Mains: Thanksgiving in a pan, pumpkin joes, stuffed french bread, and baked crumbled haddock
Desserts: sweet potato pudding, apple orchard cake, raw apple pie, and dulce de leche bars
Slow Cooker: simmered autumn applesauce, cranberry wild rice, and cinnamon-glazed carrots
Would I buy this book? Absolutely, and I would highly recommend it as an addition to your cookbook library or as a gift for others. It's the perfect mix of fall classics and new fall-cooking ideas.
