    Delicious and different recipes!

    Katie Brown Celebrates is full of beautiful, full page, color photographs, easy and crative crafts, and delicious and different recipes! So far I have made:<BR/><BR/>Cinnamon-Sugar Crisps with Orange Creme fraiche - very easy to make and delicious. These were especially good with a cup of coffee! I ended up eating most of the orange creme fraiche as a dip with strawberries and that was fantastic!<BR/><BR/>Honey-Spice Almond - The first time I made these I thought they had way too much salt in them. The second time I cut the salt back and they were perfect. I love spiced nuts but have never used almonds. These make a nice addition to the maple pecans I usually make. The cumin, paprika, and sesame seeds make them a little different.<BR/><BR/>Moroccan Carrot Salad - This was nice for a different, bright salad that can easily be made in the winter. Nothing spectacular but I will probably make it again.<BR/><BR/>Pear Salad with Jicama, Radish, and Celery - This was my favorite recipe so far. Its crisp and refreshing, a little sweet and perfect to liven up a winter meal.<BR/><BR/>Spicy Butternut Squash Soup - I made this for the Super Bowl and it was a big hit. Roasting the squash in butter instead of olive oil gives the whole soup a delicious, buttery flavor that was distinct from other butternut soups I've made. This has become my go-to butternut squash soup!<BR/><BR/>I can see that I will be using this cookbook a lot! I am looking forward to trying Grilled Pork Ribs and the Moroccan Braised Chicken!

    Find Inspiration for your Celebrations

    This is Katie Brown's fifth book, newly released from Hachette Books. This latest book is all about celebration.<BR/><BR/>" After all, the art of celebration is what makes life fun - it is what creates tradition and memories."<BR/><BR/>Brown provides us with the tools and ideas to make our own celebrations and memories. There are monthly ideas including graduations, birthday, Thanksgiving, Christmas and many more. Each month is introduced by an anecdote from Brown's life. There are decorations, favours, table settings and of course recipes for every occasion.<BR/>There are some great quick ideas - try using different colours and widths of duct tape to give a picnic table a new tablecloth. There are more involved ideas to create elegant tableaus as well.<BR/><BR/>What I enjoyed most were the recipes. There are some basics that are sure to become family traditions - Peanut Butter and Jelly French Toast Roll Ups has been tried and enjoyed in my kitchen. And some new twists on old standbys - Whole Grain Potato Salad, Apple Brownies. As well, there are some recipes that are completely new that I cannot wait to try - Parmesan Soup with Swiss Chard Dumplings is on my list. But my sweet tooth rules - there are some totally decadent desserts featured that had my mouth watering.<BR/><BR/>The entire book is filled with glossy, colour photographs detailing everything. There is also a section with the recipes broken down into categories - soups, main, desserts etc. Brown has also combined the recipes into new occasions - garden lunch, candlelight dinner and more.<BR/><BR/>This is a great book to follow or use as inspiration as you create your own celebrations.

    Cadillac of Cookbooks!

    Here is the Cadillac of cookbooks; it even smells good! The beautifully colored glossy pages are divided into the twelve months of the year with plans for a celebration party that includes invitations and decorations to recipes for appetizers through desserts. Easy craft projects are clever. Recipes are easy to follow. Mix and match menus ideas are in the back, along with a color index. It's a can't miss entertainer's tool.
