I love browsing through cookbooks, so I always have my eye out for new ones. Ones with pictures and bright colors always are my first choice, so this was a no-brainer.

Some reviewers don't like this book because it was "too easy". People, the title is 30 minute hostess, not gourmet, got all day hostess. Anyone can find recipes for a party. I really like how this puts them together in a theme. For me, that's the hardest thing. I liked this book and hope to use it often. Beautiful pictures.
