A handful of recipes with canned soup, one with canned alfredo sauce, and a trifle using purchased cake, a box of pudding, canned fruit, and a tub of whipped product. One of the recipes included a photo - from the cover.
After the recipes is a story about a man abandoning his fiance for another woman a week before their wedding. But there were two photos promoting books.
Recommended only for those brand-new to entertaining and only because it is, after all, free. If you can't afford one of the flashier entertainment how-to guides and can make the time, you can do better than "Savvy Holiday Entertaining" at your public library.
You will find a few recipes and an excerpt from a novel included with this book. I could not find an interactive table of contents. Perhaps I missed it. Well I found the interactive table of contents when I clicked on the recipe title called Christmas Salad. Strange but true. I guess the table of contents is "hidden" on all the first recipe titles while the second recipe title listed takes you to her Savvy Entertaining website.
Some of the recipes you will find include:
Easy Alfredo Lasagna
This is a unique cookbook written by the author Shanna Hatfield.
Recommend with caveats given.
You will be delighted with the secrets to successful entertaining from the "Who - What - When - Where to the crown jewel of the collection: Vanilla Cotta with Raspberry Coulis. You will discover dozens of strategies for a perfect gathering. Be inspired by theme choices and learn how to add the special touches that will make yours the best party of the year!
Let Shanna lead you to the perfect party foods and help you conquer your organizational shortcomings. Don't let the next gathering consume all your time, money, and joy. From buffet setup to supplies and overnight guests, this lovely guide will ensure you forget nothing.
I'm off now to test the cinnamon rolls recipe and of course the Vanilla Panna Cotta with Raspberry Coulis.
The book isn't just about recipes though. It's about offering tips, ideas and a guide to hosting holiday get togethers. I find the book to be a compilation of great advice and easy to make recipes that you'd share with friends. Shanna does this in a way that makes you feel like a friend reading it, which is a bonus!
You will find things like 'Creating a Coffee Station' and 'Gift Wrapping Basics' peppered in with recipes for desserts, snacks, main dishes and a festive drink holiday drink, Pomegranate Punch. This book is a great book for those who are hosting a holiday party for the first time, and for those who wish to get tuned into the holiday spirit and discover a few new tricks and recipes.
I highly recommend this book, and Shanna's other 'savvy' books like: Savvy Autumn Entertaining (Savvy Entertaining) which offer a fun read with great tips and recipes.
NOTE: No, Shanna and I are not in cahootz to get you to buy these books. I really, really like them and think she deserves kudos for her excellent efforts!
my favorite time of the year. She gives you such detailed plans. The author practically gives the party for you. She makes it easy for you to have an amazing event and still be able to enjoy yourself as well.
