I love Sandra Lee's Semi-Homemade approach to cooking. 70% store-bought and 30% fresh works for me. I have a large selection of her magazines in a magazine holder on my bookshelf and several of her books. Her party and tablescape ideas are wonderful - all the right touches for a perfect celebration, whatever the holiday, season, or festivity.
My current favorite is her Cocktail Time book. I love that it is separated into the twelve months of the year with festive cocktails and hors d'oeuvres for each month.
Each month's section begins with a teaser word collage, a delicious preview of the cocktails and hors d'oeuvres to come. February is red and pink, of course, and full of yummy goodness for Valentine's Day. If you like to entertain, and love planning a celebration that's tailored to a particular holiday or season, you'll love this book!
