It’s PARTY TIME! Summer will soon be coming to an end and next thing you know we’ll be knocking people over at Wal-Mart to get our 9th $2.99 chopper. No matter how many we have, we just can’t say no to a Black Friday deal. When Fall comes around I look forward to all the food.
I received a copy of Martha Stewart’s Appetizers by Martha Stewart to review. So far this is my FAVORITE book that I’ve received and I haven’t tried 1 recipe YET. This book is packed with so many appetizers to make for a great dinner party. Flipping through the pages makes me want to plan a dinner party just to try out the many recipes.
The first thing that stands out about Martha Stewart’s Appetizers book is that EVERY recipe is accompanied with a picture. Don’t quote me on that but I’m pretty sure that a picture is included with every recipe. That’s a make or break for me when I’m looking through a cookbook to determine if I want to purchase it or not so 2 thumbs up for that.
In addition to the mouthwatering recipes, there are party planning tips and strategies included to help you throw a successful party. Some of the tips include are, settling on a menu, establishing a timeline, strategizing your shopping, serving essentials and more.
You can’t have a party without a few cocktails so no worries there are recipes for signature cocktails that are sure to be a hit at your party. Again I can’t say enough about how impressed I am with the layout of this book. Martha Stewart’s first book was published in 1982, so clearly she knows how to put together a great cookbook. While there are tips included, the focus of the 254 page book is on the recipes.
Martha Stewart’s Appetizers by Martha Stewart will hit the bookshelves September 8th which is plenty of time to test out a few recipes before the holidays. I’ll definitely share what I try and I hope you do the same. CHEERS!
