HASH(0xa21ac900) out of 5 stars I Love This Book!!! April 17 2010
By mochachick - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
After throwing a successful get together this afternoon, I just had to write a review! I hosted my book club for lunch and made the Mini Wild Mushroom Risotto Cakes, Spinach & Asiago Cheese Sandwiches (kind of like mini grilled cheeses -I added prosciutto to mine) and the Grilled Citrus Chicken and Brown Rice Salad and I couldn't believe how much my hard-to-impress girlfriends just raved about the food -everything was so flavorful and yummy and was beyond simple to make. I bought the book after seeing Lulu on the Today show and I'm so happy that I did -she has lots of great ideas that are so simple to execute but your guests will think you were slaving away all day. Her style is really approachable and I really like that she encourages you to use what you have and make every recipe your own -it's not about being perfect like Martha, it's about being able to have memorable moments with your guests. Lulu has lots of stories about her family and friends in the book and reading it makes you feel like she's one of your girlfriends letting you in on the secrets of being an excellent host. The book is full of beautifully styled photographs and many clever tips -I love her suggestion of making your own specialty ice cubes with fresh fruit and herbs on page 79 -something so simple makes even basic sparkling water feel special. I can't say enough how much I've enjoyed this cookbook so far and I just can't wait to try some of the other recipes! This is definitely going to be my go-to gift for Mother's Day, birthdays and engagements. Buy this book, you won't be disappointed!!

HASH(0xa21ac954) out of 5 stars Casual Entertainer April 11 2010
By Marie Therese Liddy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Fabulous book for the "every-once-in-a-while' cook and entertainer. Never read (yes I mean READ from cover to cover) a book that made me want to throw a party right away! Every tip,every recipe, every memorable story about Lulu and her wonderful,entertaining and loving family made this an actual page turner---something I have never experienced with a cook book. I keep opening it up and planning my next small social, the next big family gathering, the next birthday party. I have already ordered copies for all the cooks in my family and plan to order more as gifts for my friends and business colleagues!!

HASH(0xa21acc30) out of 5 stars This book is an entertaining BIBLE!! April 17 2010
By Entertainer extraordinaire in Westchester - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The title of the book says it all. Not only does does Lulu make entertaining EASY, but the recipes are SIMPLE to follow, STYLISH in presentation but above all absolutely delicious. The steak marinade will become my go-to marinade. I made it Saturday night to rave reviews. We entertain quite frequently and the book provides some great ideas. I especially love the "Cheat Sheet" in the back. She makes you think of things before the party and not during it. A MUST for anyone who entertains or is ready to start entertaining. I will be giving this book as housewarming presents, for bridal showers and hostess gifts for years to come. It is always good to have a signature gift and I have just found mine.

By Savvy NY hostess - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This book is amazing and so much FUN!!! It will definitely be my "go to" gift for friends. I was up so late last night combing through it page by page-- I love the photography, recipes, fun and special anecdotes, graphics, colors, entertaining tips, all of it!! It's really wonderful. I can't wait to make so many of the recipes in it, especially those cinammon sensations and Stevie's spicy blood mary's. Lulu really knows how to create a wonderful party while making it fun and unique. The book is a must have in anyone's cookbook/entertaining library!
