Firstly, I would consider this more of an entertaining book rather than a cookbook. It has tons of super delicious recipes, but they are all simple to execute and can mostly be prepped beforehand, making them perfect for parties. Martina walks you through a number of different themed parties that she has hosted, touching on invitations, decor, menu and even favors.

This book would be a great gift for anyone new to entertaining. McBride provides a step-by-step planning guide for 10 seasonal parties.

The author always encourages the reader to use as little or as much of the menu as needed.

I look forward to trying some of these recipes. More than any of the recipes though, I really enjoyed how she organizes and plans events. My biggest reservation with entertaining is how to prepare everything to be ready on time, while still spending time with my guests.

The book was good, and I am glad that I didn't pay full price for it.
Some of the tips are great, and the recipes seems nice, but didn't really attract my attention for long.
