From Publishers Weekly
While Beanland and Terry do care about having a nice home, throwing fantastic parties and whipping up fabulous dinners, they have better things to do than polish the silver. The coauthors of Its a Chick Thing: Celebrating the Wild Side of Womens Friendships throw Martha Stewart-esque caution to the wind in this lifestyle guide with attitude, irreverently addressing the "four pillars of nesting": decorating, entertaining, cooking and gardening. In each section, they give a basic overview of how to approach the task at hand, and then delve into the nitty-gritty, with sidebars, lists, pull-out quotes from celebrities and quirky clip art, all with a can-do, girl power mind-set, evident in the inclusion of such lines as "I am a marvelous housekeeper. Every time I leave a man, I keep his house" (from Zsa Zsa Gabor). Among other tidbits, readers will find cocktail recipes, flea market shopping tips, party invitation ideas, suggestions for creating a garden that suits their personality and reasons to give Martha some credit ("the chick can carve a pumpkin 200 ways and make 65 recipes from the seeds alone!").

I cannot say the stories are all that great of the author and her friends. Think you had to be there. Not always in the best taste.
Still it is worth the recipies.
