Babe and her buffed bakers have appeared on the The Today Show, Good Day Philadelphia, Pix11 Morning News and many other shows. This drool-worthy book has also been featured in The New York Post, Harper's Bazaar, The Guardian and many other popular sites.

She has aired her saucy views on dating and mating on a range of shows across the US from Good Morning Austin to 7 Live San Francisco. Prior to packing up her cocktail shaker and heading Stateside, Babe published magazines in her native Australia, launching a smorgasbord of titles on everything from fashion to food.
This martini-loving minx is also an inventive mixologist and has created luscious libations for the likes of Glamour, Bridefinds.com, and Glo. Babe also blogs for the Huffington Post and has written for CNNLiving.com, YourTango.com and other other popular sites.

if you enjoy long lists of kitchen and entertaining equipment as well as exhortations to get a good push-up bra and enticing “panties” so you can enjoy fun In bed with some sexy stud muffin after the party—AND more fun the morning AFTER the night before, YOU WILL LOVE THIS BOOK. I WAS looking forward to a book with a bit more charm, but this is not quite it.
Howver, I know that BABE SCOTT has a huge following. And is a beloved entertaining Goddess. So I confess I must surely be missing something. If you are a beginning hostess who needs a lot of little tips ( AND LISTS😱) and is looking for guidance about how to pull off successful post-party “,coitus ” ( otherwise known as a roll in the hay) with a willing bedmate this may be just the book for you! 👍😁😎
I wouldn't say I am a Lazy Hostess but easy, quick and cheap works for me. Peppered with quotes, "I drink to make my friends more interesting - Don Marquis", and fun illustrations, this book is a practical guide to hosting a cocktail party for friends. While I skimmed over Babe's fashion advice, I appreciated her simple suggestions about decor. There are also chapters on 'The 7 Habits of Highly Stress-free Hostesses' and how to get your guests to go home. On Scott's website you can also find invitations to print, Spotify playlists and more recipes.
I happen to enjoy cooking, but not spending hours in slaving in the kitchen, so I was particularly interested in Scott's recipe ideas and I was pleased to find a few new 'Devilishly Easy Hors D'Oeuvres' to try. Scott offers some great tips for planning, preparation and service and many of the recipes have no more than a half a dozen ingredients, most of which you can probably find in your pantry. Some are so simple but very clever like the Tempting Potato Wedges (wrap streaky bacon around frozen potato wedges, secure with a toothpick and bake) and I know I will be trying the Potato-Crisp Crusted Cheese Balls.
Of course there are plenty of cocktail recipes as well, from the classic Pina Colada to the Mafia's Kiss. I particularly like that Babe provides the method for preparing pitchers of the various concoctions. Who wants to be stuck behind the bar all night?
A fun and practical reference book, The Lazy Hostess is a handy resource for any hostess who wants to be the mostest. It would also make a great housewarming or hen's gift.
