1.0 out of 5 stars One photo, and recipes using canned soup June 27, 2012
By Shreela
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Many ideas on how to decorate - presented in text, except for one photo.

A handful of recipes with canned soup, one with canned alfredo sauce, and a trifle using purchased cake, a box of pudding, canned fruit, and a tub of whipped product. One of the recipes included a photo - from the cover.

After the recipes is a story about a man abandoning his fiance for another woman a week before their wedding. But there were two photos promoting books.

1.0 out of 5 stars This books is common sense November 13, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Even the price of FREE does not help this book. It is full of common sense and very few recipes. For a free book it is OK, but it totally under delivered on what was promised.

2.0 out of 5 stars not an actual cookbook July 15, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
The cover of "Savvy Holiday Entertaining" will lead you to think it's a cookbook; it's not. There are more recipes in one of Diane Mott Davidson's mysteries. "Savvy Holiday Entertaining" is mostly a book on holiday decorating for your party and tips on different types of parties. It might be useful for a new bride and groom who have never entertained, but most of the contents of this eBook are pretty commonsense. Martha Stewart won't be worried that "Savvy Holiday Entertaining" -- even though it's free -- will be cutting into the sales of her entertainment books.

Recommended only for those brand-new to entertaining and only because it is, after all, free. If you can't afford one of the flashier entertainment how-to guides and can make the time, you can do better than "Savvy Holiday Entertaining" at your public library.

1.0 out of 5 stars disappointing January 9, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Needs visuals. Holidayentertaining is all about how it looks. A title doesn't grab my attention, a picture does. Needs pictures!

3.0 out of 5 stars Commonsense entertaining tips with a few recipes December 15, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The Savvy Holiday Entertaining cookbook contains commonsense entertaining tips with a few recipes. Most of the information would be useful for the first time host or hostess, but for savvy entertainers most of the information is old hat.

You will find a few recipes and an excerpt from a novel included with this book. I could not find an interactive table of contents. Perhaps I missed it. Well I found the interactive table of contents when I clicked on the recipe title called Christmas Salad. Strange but true. I guess the table of contents is "hidden" on all the first recipe titles while the second recipe title listed takes you to her Savvy Entertaining website.

Some of the recipes you will find include:

Banana Bread
Christmas Salad
Pork Roast
Easy Alfredo Lasagna

This is a unique cookbook written by the author Shanna Hatfield.

Recommend with caveats given.
