When it comes to cocktails and appetizers, chef Kathy Casey is an expert at balancing flavors and textures. Sips & Apps has 100 recipes that include not only classics like the Martini and Manhattan but also creative new concoctions like the Douglas Fir Sparkletini and the Blue Thai Mojito.

Lots of info on stocking a home bar and plenty of techniques and extras (like a nifty double ribbon marker labeled "sips" and "apps") make it easy to match up the right sip with the right app.

Head Cashier, Caroline Reed, recommended this book to me when I was at her cash register for check. Caroline knows me and new my wife would really like the book. So I bought a copy. And it is a great book. I recommended it to other friends and one them actually purchased the 100th copy referred by Caroline which we heard was a first for the Woodinville store. Caroline keeps a lot of us coming back.

Not often does a book inspire me to get up and use it - but Kathy your book inspired me. I called a few friends and invited them over to try out a few of your ideas. I made the "Tuscan Rosemary Lemon Drop" and I also tried one of the clear-headed cocktails, the "Herbalicious H2O". Both were a hit! Everyone loved them. I also added to the party your appetizer "Roasted Pear Crostini with Gorgonzola. Delicious!!! We had such a fun evening gathered around your drinks and appetizer. I now feel like a pro thanks to you. This book is a must! I know one of my friends went online that evening and purchased one too. Thanks Kathy.

From the heartfelt dedication to the Hangover Helper recipe on the last page, and everything in between... "Sips and Apps" is way too good to hide on a bookshelf! (my new copy has found a home right on my kitchen counter!) Kathy Casey has set the bar high (no pun intended!) and has written a book, that when read, you feel like she's standing right next to you in your kitchen, or bar, guiding you into creating drinks and food that will "WOW" anyone!! I can not wait to put this ingenious book to use, whether I'm entertaining or gift giving!!
