I brought this book for a co-worker as a Secret Santa gift and she loved it. I also purchased this book for myself. The Spinach dip is to die for.

Lots of recipes and drinks. Great book.
If you can not find something in this cookbook to start your mouth drooling, then you obviously did not open up this book. What I like most about the Neely's recipes are that they are made with simple ingredients that most people have in their cupboards, the instructions are easy to follow and the recipes are something most people would typically fix or fix for a special occasion. I loved the Easy If-Ya-Ain't-Got-a-Smoker BBQ Pork, Grilled Shrimp & Pineapple Skewers, Fried Chicken Sliders with Sweet-Pickle Mayo and Honey BBQ Sticky Drumsticks. This book is sectioned off by months of the year and there are recipes for each month based on what type of holiday or celebration you could be celebrating that month(graduation, Girl's Night, Back to School, Tailgating, 16th birthday, Super Bowl, etc.). Each month has 2 or 3 different celebrations with different recipes for each celebration (yes, lots of recipes!). Great drink ideas too: Minted Iced Tea,Peach Sprtizer, Shot of Love, Blood Orange Bellinis,etc. they are just great and such a great variety. The dessert are just wonderful too! Some of the recipes in the book are deep-fried and I am not a big deep-frier and I was really excited to see that at the bottom of a lot of these recipes they had separate directions on how to make these recipes in the oven. Each recipe also has its own tidbit of information at the top of the page to help you create the recipe. The Neely's start off each month's section with commentary about the celebrations of the month and their personal take on them and that is what makes the Neely's so special and the cookbook something you're glad you embarked on. It's not just a cookbook, it's an adventure in your kitchen
