Mom's Best Crowd-Pleasers Review and GIVEAWAY


101 No-Fuss Recipes for Family
Gatherings, Casual Get-Togethers,
& Surprise Company
By Andrea Chesman

My latest giveaway is a terrific cookbook from Storey Publishing that I know you'll use again and again. This is one of several books I've been sent to review and it was perfect timing! While this is geared for a "crowd", many of the recipes are for six to eight which is just family-size for us when the big kids come home.

It is packed with 101 recipes for everything from appetizers to desserts, salads and main dishes, all the way to goodies for desserts and bake sales. Author Andrea has pulled together a nice variety of recipes. We tried the Maple Baked Beans, but didn't follow the directions exactly so our results were less than stellar. We needed to add more seasoning for our tastes. The Brownie Pizza is a keeper. And, I'm looking forward to trying out some of the brunch recipes for Mother's Day.

I'm happy to have the publisher send out a copy of this fun cookbook to ONE WINNER.

I get together with some women once a month to knit prayer shawls and we will bring food items to eat while we are knitting.

I try to host a monthly knit/craft/chat/snack night, and treats for a crowd are always necessary! Plus, we have mother's day, father's day, and birthdays in June - always big family events!
