Friday Finds: Desperation Entertaining

This Friday, I want to highlight a cookbook that should be in everyone's collection, even if you don't frequently entertain. Nearly every recipe in this book is fantastic, and most of them can be easily scaled if you are not serving a crowd.

Get thee to Amazon for this book!

Alicia Ross and Beverly Mills have hit the jackpot in their cookbook, Desperation Entertaining. They have wonderful plan and prepare-ahead tips to make cooking for gatherings a breeze. And the recipes - oh, the recipes. The Heirloom Fudge Pie is to die for, and so easy you won't believe it.

So go, check it out. You'll love it.

What's your find?

*NOTE* Mr. Linky is not currently working correctly, so just leave your URL in the comments, and when I figure out how to make Mr. Linky work, I'll enter it in myself. Thanks!

If you'd like to add your Friday Find to the list, check out the rules here.

Heirloom fudge pie? That sounds fantastic! Do many of the recipes involve meat, though? What I really need is a good vegetarian cookbook...Or a good dessert cookbook for me, for that matter. Any tips on those?

Ummm...did I do the linking thing right? Anyway, I talked about a find on my site today.

Jess - Not a vegetarian cookbook, but you could adapt a lot of the recipes I think. You might check it out of the library first if you're not sure if you want to buy. But the book is totally worth it for the desserts alone.

But I can recommend a good vegetarian cookbook - well, at least a mostly vegetarian one. It's called "The Victory Garden Cookbook," by Marian Morash.

A lot of her recipes sound complicated, but are easy to make in a simpler way if you know how to cook.

I've got a few vegetarian cooking blogs I visit regularly. I'll write my own Friday Finds post tonight about them (and throw in a vegetarian cookbook, too). :)
