My Personal Review: I received a copy of this book for a fair and honest review. I enjoyed the way the book was separated into sections. It made it easy to plan out ways to use the book or things I wanted to make. It is good for ideas for parties, luncheons, and other get-togethers. It has things from drink, snacks, dinner and dessert ideas. It is a good book to have.
