|First off this book did not work for me but I think others may really like it. The photos were superb, the recipes looked easy to follow, but for me, I was looking more of homemade gifts. Like jams or jellies etc... Like I said just not for me, others will like the ideas she has for entertaining but again they were a little too extreme for me. I am more of an old fashion vintage keep it simple type of guy and for others, this book might be what others would want for entertaining maybe not for kids and baking cookies and not worrying about the mess until later, that is for me, and yes I do my own cleanup. Overall pictures good easy to follow. I received this book from Netgalley.com I gave it 3 stars. Follow us at www.1rad-readerreviews.com|
