So far we've tried the Snickerdoodles and the Quinoa Salad with Roast Veggies and Feta both of which turned out great as I'd expect from Jenny. There's a long list of recipes I can't wait to try -- Apricot Rum Glazed Ham, Franks and Beans, Cider Glazed Meatballs, Grilled Potatoes with Chutney, etc etc.
My only complaint is that similar to her first book, it is a little bit of a wander and when you're looking for a specific recipe, you often have to use the index as finding a particular section or remembering where a recipe fell in her order of things can be frustrating. It think it's more organized than the first -- there's a rough seasonal organization and of course the various sections of holidays, family rituals, etc. but with all the stories and pictures it's still not as easy to navigate as a traditional cookbook.
This is not just a book for women though. This book is for everyone who wants to celebrate a bit more and build some good traditions. This will help give you ideas around different holidays.
I like that this will help anyone who wants to create new traditions do so in a way that brings people together!
