This is a gorgeous book and the photos will make you droooooooool... My friend prepared a flank or skirt steak from this book last weekend, and we all just about melted in our seats. She was generous enough to share her new little secret weapon with me, so I just ordered it for myself. Can't WAIT till it gets here!!

Lulu is a very clever, talented and gracious hostess and chef. Her recipes are so easy to follow, taste incredible, and there is something for everyone. Her suggestions from table settings to everyday nibbles in the kitchen are always inexpensive, very easy to execute, and make any environment very fun, welcoming and relaxed. It's an necessity for everyone's library and also makes a perfect gift. Lulu's book will from now on be a staple in my kitchen. Although the photos are so beautiful, it's worthy of my coffee table!

I thought I would flip through this book and tag a couple recipes I wanted to try. By the time I finished I was thinking I shoud have tagged the ones that were not for me. There are so many tags I will need a new system for this book. The recipes cover a range of tastes and categories. I love this book.
