Recipes are easy to follow.
Sally
One of the things I love about this book is that the dishes and decorations don't look professionally made - they look like something that can be duplicated easily.

This is a great book to follow or use as inspiration as you create your own celebrations.

Do you love to entertain but need some fresh ideas? Are you afraid to entertain because you think it's too difficult? If you answered yes to either of those questions, Katie Brown Celebrates: Simple and Spectacular Parties All Year Round is for you.

In this book, Katie Brown gives you recipes, and ideas for decorating and favors for a party a month. She covers everything from a Spicy Graduation Celebration to A Birthday Valentine to Holiday Brunch. At the back of the book she has included Mix and Match Menus (using the included recipes) to create even more celebrations. There's also a great picture index in the back.

One of the things I love about this book is that the dishes and decorations don't look professionally made - they look like something that can be duplicated easily. As an example, I've included the picture of the Wafer Cake she made for a Kids' Day party. The cake is made from a mix and the frosting is from a tub. All you have to do is create the decorations.

I tried out the recipe for Herbed Feta Puffs (from The Welcome Wagon) and they are simple and delicious. I have to admit to "sampling" quite a bit of the filling as I made these.

Here is the Cadillac of cookbooks; it even smells good! The beautifully colored glossy pages are divided into the twelve months of the year with plans for a celebration party that includes invitations and decorations to recipes for appetizers through desserts. Easy craft projects are clever. Recipes are easy to follow. Mix and match menus ideas are in the back, along with a color index. It's a can't miss entertainer's tool.

Format: Hardcover
Katie Brown Celebrates has over 100 tasty recipes that make your mouth water with anticipation. With an introduction from the author, this wonderful book has month-by-month recipes, though they could be used any time of the year. With an innovative and delightful 6 page picture index at the back, I have to tell you, this book has tempted my taste buds and inspired my own creative party-hosting abilities. There are countless, vibrant and beautiful photographs, with each recipe photo showing you exactly what you're version should look like.

Some recipe titles include:
' Parmesan Soup with Swiss Chard-Stuffed Dumplings
' Gorgonzola-Stuffed Potatoes
' White Bean-Lamb Stew
' Herbed Feta Puffs
' Pizza Stick Roll-Ups
' Green Garden Soup
' Lemon-Rhubarb Trifle
' Moroccan Braised Chicken
' Apple Brownies
' Pear Salad With Jicama Radish, and Celery
.....And MUCH, MUCH MORE!

With unique and creative party planning and menu ideas, many of which I have never seen before, you are sure to find everything you will need to delight even the most discerning of guests.
I very highly recommend this book!

(10 out of 10 Diamonds) - Absolutely LOVED it!!

I love Katie Brown's crafts and recipes. The crafts in this book are so easy to follow and anyone could do it and they have a great homemade feel to them when you are finished. The book is categorized by month and I was happy to find a "cheat sheet" in the back of the book that list all the recipes and crafts so if I want to make turkey in March I can quickly find it and do just that. Speaking of Turkey, it's my favorite recipe in the book so far. The recipe gives a refreshing twist to a dull bird. Happy Entertaining!
