Finally, a cook book without all the fluff, pomp and circumstance. Emma Buckley nails the basics of putting together a holiday feast for family and friends. With this book you can plan a full-on festive meal -- from appetizer to after-dinner drinks -- and never have to leave your Kindle once. And you don't have to wade through a sea of ink just to get to the recipes.

Need some quick appetizers for a last minute get-together? Bam! Fire up these chicken wings and spinach artichoke dip. Easy.

Or, let's say you have the roast turkey part taken care of, and you're just looking for the right sides: How can you go wrong with mashed sweet potatoes and green beans with bacon?

Even if you get this just for the desserts it will be well worth the investment. (Heavenly Raspberry Cheesecake, anyone?)

For 99 cents (price I paid) dinner is done. The only thing you'll have to worry about is who's going to do the dishes.

I am constantly amazed at how hard people work when they are in the kitchen. And what is even more amazing is the enjoyment they derive from it. This cookbook just "feels" warm and happy.

Buttered turkey? Wow - that sounds delicious. Lobster Bisque? I have enjoyed this but it was at a restaurant. I look forward to trying out this recipe for my family this holiday season.

This cookbook was very step-by-step which is going to be extremely helpful for someone like me (a non-frequent cooker). But with the thoroughness of the directions, I feel like I can make it just like the author (wish me luck)!

This book made me hungry just reading it. Many of the recipes reminded me of the great cooking like Mom and Gradma used to make. Special treats that you wouldn't eat every day but are not difficult to prepare and taste yum! The instructions are quite complete and simple to follow. Anyone interested in cooking should get this one.

I will keep and use many of these recipes over and over, and not just for the holidays. It's a great cookbook.

The recipes look like they are going to be very tasty especially the blueberry delight. Can't wait to try it and the other recipes. Good job.

Usually when we think of holidays we think of Thanksgiving and Christmas...roast turkey, pumpkin pie, Christmas cookies and fudge. This book doesn't follow that typical path, but instead has some very interesting recipes to choose from. It is quite refreshing to see some different recipes from those that we would typically expect in this type of book.

In this book you'll find such recipes as Cherry Torte, Fabulous Cobbler, Roasted Onions with Thyme and Whiskey-Basted Ham. Not your usual fare, but excellent recipes for you to use. These recipes all look easy to make and have easy to obtain ingredients as well. I especially like the recipe for Whiskey-Basted Ham (and I don't even drink!). It looks really interesting and it's something I will try for our family over the holidays.

I made the Baby Crab Cakes and they were awesome. I love seafood so any time I see a new seafood recipe I have to try it! They made a lovely supper along with some cheesy broccoli and dilled carrots. Delicious!

If you want some interesting recipes, get this book. It's great.

The holidays are a time for fun, family, friends and food! The problem can sometimes be that you get bored preparing the same old dishes.

As the author of Turkey Fryers & Deep Fried Turkey: How To Deep Fry A Turkey- Complete Step By Step Instructions To Cooking Your Tastiest Turkey Ever! I know the importance of having delicious, tasty side dishes to accompany your turkey.

This book has tons of great ideas and recipes that will add flair, fun and flavor to your holiday meals this year, and beyond!

Easy to read, easy to follow recipes, but food that makes you seem like a gourmet chef!
