What a great book! It was a gift from a friend who knows that I'm struggling to 'nest' and am overwhelmed by the 'experts' and their books. This book made it actually seem possible to find my innner Martha Stewart -- with useful, down-to-earth tips on decorating, entertaining, etc. -- with some great essays on the topics from women I wish I knew. The tone of the book makes it all seem approachable and doable, instead of intimidating. I also really liked the suggestions of good websites and catalogs to find things. I'm planning to give this as a housewarming gift to several friends who have recently moved into new houses.

This is a great read for anyone that needs quick ideas or just a quick pick me up after a long tiring day. I always include a copy in a newlywed's gift box (for inspiration) or a girlfriend's getaway bag (for a laugh). Just watch out for the book's disappearing act-husbands tend to enjoy it too!
Priscilla's Lasagna recipe is tops. This is Priscilla Presley's version of lasagna that she made for Elvis-and she was no cook!
I also love the Chicken Pesto Salad recipe. Quick and Easy.

This is a beautiful book to read and look at. It is a wonderful gift for any occasion, but especially bridal shower, graduation, mother's day, birthday or housewarming.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
