I have stacks of cookbooks that I love and another stack of entertaining and decorating books that I reference.
This exquisite, inexpensive book has all that in one. Love it for myself but am also using it for gifts!

Drink recipes are pretty good but think the food recipes could be better. Best part of the book is the photographs so maybe good coffee table book.

Speaking of those summertime parties, here's a book that is sure to draw interest from anyone who enjoys whiling away a relaxed afternoon or evening on an old-fashioned porch. That's exactly the concept of "Porch Parties: Cocktail Recipes and Easy Ideas for Outdoor Entertaining" by Denise Gee ($16.95, Chronicle, 144 pp.).

Even though the basics of this book are cocktails, it goes the extra mile in weaving its story of relaxing on the porch. This one will have you swaying back and forth in your chair as if you were in an old rocker as you turn the pages. I really enjoyed the interesting sidebars that accompany each recipe and the author goes into extra detail in setting the scene for these outings with hints on planning, appetizers, décor and more.

It is probably my fault for not reading the description better before ordering, but this is mainly a "how to make mixed drinks" book with a few recipes for food in the back. I was expecting a lot more ideas for parties, like decorating, etc., and more recipes for party food.

We all like summer outings.. well most of us do! This has some really great classic recipes for drinks and some nice decorating tips for fun outdoor get togethers. We can all look on the internet for ideas, but it's kind of nice to have a hardcover book of ideas.

I am really enjoying this book. I love porch parties and the title caught my eye. There are so many great recipes in here for beverages, not only cocktails but virgin drinks as well. I'm making Minted Raspberry Iced Tea as I write this, with mint from my garden. And I'm looking forward to using these recipes for my entertaining this summer. (I have a copy of this lovely book from my library. Can't wait to get my own copy.) I'm a native Georgian, so I say 'hats off' to the author. Porch parties require lots of iced beverages and finger foods. This book will be my go-to when preparing for my next party.

From the author of God, Me, and Sweet Iced Tea, Rose Chandler Johnson

This would make a wonderful gift book or hostess gift (I have to figure out who gives hostess gifts and friend them since the only thing I've ever received is mediocre bottles of wine). I picked this book up when my local library had it on display, fell in love and ordered my own copy. The drink recipes I tried were great and the prosciutto, asparagus puff pastry was a BIG hit in my house. I love the photography -- one of the porches has a BUST on it -- and now dream of owning a home with a column porch big enough to support a beautiful party like the ones shown here. It's a fun book, if only for dreaming of the fun events you'd like to host.
