About the Author

JORJ MORGAN is a home chef, cooking instructor, freelance writer, businesswoman, director of lifestyles content for BlueSuitMom.com, and former owner and manager of a catering and party planning firm in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Her feature articles and food newsletter, focusing on the unique needs of executive working mothers, appear regularly on various Internet sites, including BlueSuitMom.com, Discovery.com, AmazingMoms.com, Xylo.com, Go-Mom.com, and FabulousFoods.com. The author of At Home in the Kitchen, she lives in Sea Ranch Lakes, Florida.

More About the Author

Born, April 19th, 1953, smack dab in the middle of the other 77 million Baby Boomers, I am today a proud grandmother, author, happy home chef and passionate blogger on my self-created websites Jorj.com and FromNanasKitchen.com. I write about "entry-nights", yummy appys, entrees, desserts and drinks, theme parties and other F-U-N ranging from the laid back to the black tie. My favorite thing in the world are twists on 50's dinner classics, especially when I get the chance to "kick it up!" with a contemporary twist.

Okay. Here comes my culinary resume--try not to get dizzy!

I am the Lifestyle Director and Food Expert at BlueSuitMom.com and contributor to several other mom-oriented websites, including the "Expert's Corner" on BizyMoms.com, where I dish on a wide range of domestic topics, such as winning over picky eaters, pantry stocking tips and the latest time saving devices in kitchen gadgetry.

On the nationally televised front, I hosted a Kitchen Spaces segment, which appeared on the Food Network. I have appeared on nationally syndicated television programs The Daily Buzz, Daytime and At Home Live, as well as Good Morning Texas, Cookin' with Carol and QVC. It has also been my pleasure to record two NPR segments with Linda Gassenheimer on her program, "Dinner in Minutes".

I'm also quite proud of my spokesperson work with Proctor & Gamble, the Florida Citrus Growers, Smucker's, SKYY Sport and Hershey's Chocolate. I use everything I've learned (and eaten!) to help the typical American family achieve a healthy balance between work and home--realizing, along the way, how surprisingly easy fine dining can be. My precious grandchildren make this an enjoyable and very special mission statement, so I hope you'll get on board and follow my Nana Network and cooking blog today!

Kudos to Jorj Morgan, she has done it again! In the logical and splendid follow-up to "At Home in the Kitchen," she captures the essence of entertaining in your home. From an intimate dinner for two to a house warming party for 100, Jorj guides the reader, whether a seasoned hostess or novice through the party planning process. Her tips on everything from the recipe to details such as decor are not only marvelous, but are realstic as well. It is refreshing to read a book on entertaining that does not talk down to the reader or expect us to have a bee hive in our backyard from which to extract the honey needed for a recipe! It is well researched and written. I am convinced that if Jorj doesn't know something about throwing a party, she could make it up in a pinch and it would be perfect!! In these times when we just want to stay home and be with friends, this is the perfect primer!!

Numerous spelling mistakes (ie: potato for tomato!) and party ideas that have already been explored in other books make this one to pass on. For better insight, color photos, and fresh ideas, try Colin Cowie's Effortless Elegance or Nicole Aloni's Secrets from a Caterer's Kitchen.

At Home Entertaining makes throwing a party easy. Not only does Jorj have party menus, recipes and shortcuts in the book but she also offers shopping lists to print out on her web site. The book helps take all the tedious planning out of your next party. It's a keeper!

In a time when people are entertaining in their own home more and more this is a great reference to have at hand. I purchased it when I joined Taste of Home Entertaining as a consultant. And now as I recruit new consultants and hold parties I can use books like this as consultant and hostess gifts. The recipes are mostly simple using ingredients that you can easily find in your grocery store.
