From the Inside Flap

Entertaining is fun?and Pillsbury makes it easy!

Pillsbury has been bringing home cooks convenient and delicious recipes for years, but now it?s time to party! Appetizers turn any get-together into a celebration, and with timesaving expertise from the Pillsbury kitchens, hosts get to enjoy themselves just as much as the guests.

With more than 300 recipes for dips and spreads, cold and hot appetizers, snacks and beverages, Pillsbury Appetizers helps you find the perfect recipe or pull together an entire menu. The introduction features helpful advice on freezing, cooking in batches or large quantities and making dishes ahead. Suggestions for planning and getting organized will ensure that each party or event comes off without a hitch. Tips on how to cook for a crowd from pantry staples will help you put out a fun spread of irresistible nibbles and drinks that make it seem like you were waiting for friends to stop by.

Whether planning a football bash stocked with Game-Time Nachos and Maple-Glazed BBQ Meatballs or a special cocktail party featuring Caviar and Cream Cheese-Filled Endive and Baked Brie and Brandied Mushrooms, you will find all the right recipes to fit the occasion. For great snacks (that kids will love, too) try roll-ups and mini pizzas, or add a bit of international flair with kabobs, crostini, spring rolls, antipasti or empanadas. Drink recipes include a wide selection of punches, cocktails and margaritas, as well as a variety of nonalcoholic offerings.
Suggestions for theme-party menus make it even easier to throw a Mexican fiesta patio party, a New Year?s Eve candlelight soiree, a Mediterranean getaway or an easy after-work appetizer buffet. From warm and cheesy fondues to zesty salsas to bite-sized, savory pastries, Pillsbury Appetizers has recipes for every season and every mood. Who knew you could host such fabulous parties?

Format: Hardcover
This is really a nice and complete cookbook. Has every kind of appetizers, quick and easy together with beautiful pictures. My only complain (that's why only 4 stars) is that when it comes to make pizzas, tarts or rolls, it uses only can refrigerated products; I would have liked the chance to make them on my own.
The book includes
Dips and spreads
Cold appetizers like deviled eggs and stuffed tomatos
Hot appetizers like meatballs and bruschetta
Snacks and beverages, featuring Sangria, different kinds of punches and much more
So in the end I truly recommend it to people searching for easy tried and true recipes without much fuss. Instead, if you want appetizers that you can make from scratch then I'll suggest the appertizer book by Eric Treuille

If you buy only one appetizer recipe book for your kitchen, this would be a great one. I have lots of appetizer books but this has become my favorite and I've bought it for several friends. Plenty of easy to make recipes with easy to find ingredients that have got raves from my family and friends. Try the Crostini with Brie and Cherry Relish, Crab and Asiago Bundles and Creamy Cheese Spread with Brandied Cranberries. This is not a collection of exotic recipes that will turn off some people, just great food that will make your all your guests happy. There is also a section on snacks and beverages. I love this book!

Excellent appetizer recipes for parties. I have used this book a lot. Have used it for party appetizers on several occasions and the appetizers have been a big success.
Both simple and not so simple appetizer recipes. Something for everyone no matter what level their cooking skills are at.

I reviewed this book along with the other Pillsbury C'mon Over!: Hassle-Free, Hustle-Free Entertaining appetizer cookbook thinking they would have many of the same recipes, however, I was pleasantly surprised to see that it did not. I couldn't find any recipes that were the same. I really liked this Pillsbury Appetizer cookbook, it had a great goat cheese crostini that I served at a holiday buffet with Sauvignon Blanc wine. It was delish.

I also made the Petite Stuffed Pizza snacks for a son's sleepover and they were no quick and simple to make. It was made using refrigerated parmesan breadsticks spread out and cut into squares. I was very impressed with the ease of use of this cookbook. There are quite a few pictures all clearly showing the foods. Every recipe comes with serving size, calories, fat, and exchange information. It would certainly help those needing that information.

I would also recommend the Pillsbury C'Mon Over book as well. I really liked it too.
