    more from this reviewer

    Good Resource for impromptu cocktail parties.

    I've made several of the recipes: dab a crab, strata frittata, sinful spuds, rockin reuben, open sesame shrimp. Overall, they are good recipes that would appeal to most guests looking for eclectic tastes to compliment a beer and wine or spirits gathering.

    Easy to follow methods of preparation--does include "do-ahead" tips to help you manage your kitchen prep time nicely. Also includes a "cocktail-party basics" section to help the host or hostess estimate the amount of alocohol to have on hand and what recipes to pair with which drinks.

    Fabulous find!

    This is one of the best cocktail cookbooks I have. I used 5 recipes just this past weekend and all got rave reviews. I felt like Matha Stewart, and I am NOT a cook. This book is a must buy.

    great cookbook

    What a wonderful cookbook! The 'mary's little lambs' were a BIG hit. I can't wait to try the rest of the recipes

    Delicious, flavorful and simple!

    This book took me by surprise. Not only are the recipes simple but they are quite delicious. The title is very accurate in saying 'finger food with attitude' because each recipe stands on it's own in it's complexity of flavors. I've never seen my platters empty so quickly. This is a must even for those who have a book shelf full of cookbooks. Yes, you need one more!
