This book exemplifies porch entertaining with over 50 cocktail and handheld snack recipes. These recipes make entertaining simple, fun and enjoyable. The book is bright and cheerful with great photographs. Approximately every third recipe has a coordinating picture. The book is divided into 5 chapters:Porch Party Pointers, Convivial Cocktails, Punch with Pizzazz, Think Frocktails not Mocktails, Little Bites. For this review I made the Ruby Sangria on page 71. This Sangria proved to be light tasting and refreshing. I recommend this book to anyone wanting simple delicious entertaining. This would also make a cute gift...think housewarming!

Should be for reviews, but now its kiddie make believe playtime space. Its been reported several times, but B&N does nothing about it...nothing about the reviews that are more like book reports. Maybe when we all goto Kindle I stead they will finally realize we are all sick of it.
