Great recipes and great ideas. I have tried a couple of things and they were great. I am going to use some of these recipes for a party I am catering in the fall.

Adjust your expectations - and read carefully Nov. 9 2013
By Lindsay Martz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I really wanted to like this book. The idea is cute and everyone loves tiny bites. I don't know if the fault is with the authors or the editors but this book has a ton of errors.

The very first recipe lists triple the amount of mozzarella you need for the caprese skewers if you actually read the directions.

For the mini corn dogs (or any recipe where you are going to fry toothpicks or skewers) soak the toothpicks first. The photo doesn't match - you can tell those corn dogs were skewered after frying, which doesn't match the directions.

The Boston Cream Cakes look delicious. However they weren't made with the pans in the directions. The instructions have you bake 2 x 9 inch round cakes and then cut out little rounds from the cooled cake with a cookie cutter. The cakes in the photo were baked in tiny pans (popover pan possibly, or other specialty pan). You can tell because every outer piece is perfectly golden brown and showing no crumb. If it was cut out if a larger cake you wouldn't see dark edges, it would only be the lighter inside.

The fried apples pies have odd wording in the instructions. The last sentence of step 1 is "place pies in the refrigerator and chill 30 minutes". Easy enough but at this point you don't have pies, you have two slabs of dough, one with little mounds of filling. Are you supposed to chill the dough before rolling out, or does it mean put the dough slabs on cutting boards and chill (which to me would dry it out)? Or do you chill the completed pies before frying? If I was making this I would have rolled out the dough right on my counter top, making transferring it a bit difficult.

A lot of the recipes are fried, which is fine, but they are all then "serve immediately". I will tell you that frying tends to make a mess and it's not what I want to be doing while trying to welcome guests. It's fun for an informal gathering of friends but may not work in some situations.

I don't expect to be able to duplicate cookbook photos when I cook at home. I'm not a professional chef or food stylist. However I get frustrated when photos are obviously doctored and I have NO chance of achieving the expected results from following the recipe. That just sets you up for failure. This book has far too many errors and misleading photos to be of any use to me. I didn't analyze every recipe for errors, just read through ones that sounded or looked especially good and these were the things that jumped out at me.

Big tastes, tiny food- I love this book Nov. 2 2012
By Shala Kerrigan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I'm going to be completely honest before I start gushing about the cute. I love tiny things, adore tiny foods, and love good food well made. It just delights me, well-made tiny foods are a joy to look at it and to eat.

Tiny Food Party! -Bite Sized Recipes for Miniature Meals by Teri Lyn Fish and Jenny Park is full of tiny, appetizer 1 and 2 bite versions of regular food. While the focus is on making things small, there is also a strong focus on making them well so they are as delicious as they are cute to make for truly impressive appetizers. A lot of the recipes could also be used in bento style lunches, tea party foods, or even a full meal for a dinner party which allows guests to try several different things.

The photographs are wonderful, the colors are bright and cheerful and the instructions are clearly written with American style volume measurements. A few of the recipes use common convenience ingredients, but most of them are made from scratch. The recipes have a nice gourmet/foodie flair with details and flavors like mini churros made with candied bacon in the batter and suggestions for 3 different dipping sauces.

Here's where I start squealing and clapping. Because those recipes? Are fantastic, clever and incredibly tasty. Shallots in a light, perfect batter to make tiny onion rings, perfect mashed potatoes piped in rosettes on tiny Shepard's Pies, miniature eclairs! If you look at the cover, you can see the little Caprese skewers with a Balsamic vinegar glaze. Under that are miniature toaster pastries. That recipe comes with a few suggestions for filling so you could make them to suit almost anyone's tastes.

One of my husband's favorite recipes, except for size (he feels like a giant when he eats tiny food) is the Country-style Eggs Benedict, I love that recipe too because instead of a Hollandaise sauce it uses a cheesy/garlic sauce that's a lot easier to make and that tastes fantastic.

There are also cocktail recipes for the adults. Little tiny mixed drinks served in shot glasses with gourmet twists and details to make them special and not just a miniature version of a grown up drink. Like the Bloody Marys use a Korean rice wine instead of vodka, and the glass is rimmed with bacon bits. It's a flavorful, spicy, gorgeously garnished mini drink. Adults with a sweet tooth will enjoy the Orange Creamsicles drinks with the honey and sugar garnish.

The authors worked small in very clever ways, and this is one of my favorite cookbooks this year. There are menu suggestions for various party themes, and lots of dessert recipes to go with all the main course and side dish recipes. The end of the book includes equivalencies for people using metric, and a good index to find things quickly.
[I received a complimentary copy of the book to review on my craft blog- Don't Eat the Paste. I received no other compensation, and my review is my honest opinion of the product.]

Another Book To Break Your Promise Not To Buy Any More Recipe Books Jan. 1 2013
By Laura Freed - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I keep swearing I will NOT buy any more cook/recipe books - I hate clutter. I gave away most of my books and most of my recipe books because they are just all kind of the same. It seems most of the recipes I find and use lately are from online recipe websites. HOWEVER, I have broken my promise on a few books and this was one recent promise breakers and I'm SO GLAD I DID. I've made the candied bacon churros for a party and they were a RAVE - that is a recipe you are NOT going to find on an online recipe site (easily, anyway.). Almost every recipe has a fabulous drool worthy picture. They give great tips (an America style lager like PBR keeps onion ring batter light and mild in flavor)on most recipes. There are little party planner menu ideas to keep it simple - the only problem is I want to make EVERYTHING. From Chicken n waffles to comfort food like meatloaf and deep dish pizza to quirky food like sweet corn ice cream tacos. Oh, and there are even mini cocktail recipes in the back.
This is a MUST have on the recipe book shelf because it's so different from everything I own (and even pared down, I own 3 shelve-fulls).
Love it. LOVE IT!!!!

Delicious and creative recipes!! Oct. 21 2012
By TristanR - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I love this book! The recipes are so creative and I love the idea of itty-bitty and mini everything! So original. Can't wait to try the pop tarts, and mac and cheese bites, and philly cheese steak sammies, and mini bloody marys...I could go on and on. The pictures are beautiful, everyone who sees the book comments on how delicious it all looks. I also love the theme-party menu suggestions dispersed throughout the book.

Overall, I'm extremely pleased with my purchase and will definitely be buying anything else by Jenny Park and Teri Lyn Fisher.

This book really "fit" the bill! Sept. 11 2013
By dennis shuler - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This was a gift for our daughter. I selected this particular book because she loves "tiny" things. She found the recipes cute and practical-didn't have to spend a lot on exotic or hard-to-find ingredients.
