The book is over 400 pages and split into sections per specific holidays. So for example, in the Valentines Day section, you can have apps, soups, mains, and desserts all in this section. It's quite unique as most cookbooks break down secti ...more
I'd recommend this one for someone who is looking for impressive and big-batch recipes for entertaining and potlucks. It's organized by holiday, which is fun, and also I keep compulsively reading it.
I still gave it 3 stars because the recipes do look fantastic (mostly) but I think I'm just not the kind of cook I used to be. For years, I would relish getting home from work and spending and hour or more in the kitchen making an elaborate and delicious dinner. Now? I just want ...more

Are you looking for a cookbook packed with enticing recipes for any occasion? If so, this is a must read! All of the recipes are vegan, so it's perfect if you're cooking for a guest with food allergies, or are just looking for new ideas for you and your family.

I'll allow Isa the honors of letting you know what this cookbook is about. I can not say it better than her: "But this isn't your average entertaining book, where you pull it out once a year and the rest of the time it's being used to press tofu. I want it to be your best friend, sitting on the counter, gossiping with you as you cook along..."
Great recipes. Great read.
