Martina is a woman of many talents - this book is fantastic! The ideas in this book are wonderful, and I cannot wait to try some of them in my own home. Plus, I love the unique spin she put into this book by adding personal notes, a music playlist for each gathering, and sanity savers. Job well done, Martina! You will not be disappointed in this book, and it makes a great gift!

Who knew that Martina had this other wonderful side? I am so glad that she is sharing this with the world. This book is filled with so many great ideas. I am glad that I bought it. I had to have spent an hour fully engrossed in it in the story. Highly recommended.

I was really disappointed with this book. It will go on my bookshelf never to be looked at again. It's just not a cookbook!
