The Ultimate Appetizers Book: More than 450 No-Fuss Nibbles and Drinks Plus simple party planning tips

  I was sent a copy of Better Homes and Gardens "The Ultimate Appetizers Book: More than 450 No-Fuss Nibbles and Drinks Plus simple party planning tips" from Wiley. Wiley sells a number of amazing cookbooks for use in the home or the classroom. They also sell numerous books in other subjects from agriculture to world languages.

 The Ultimate Appetizers Book: More than 450 No-Fuss Nibbles and Drinks Plus simple party planning tips is an amazing collection of appetizing recipes for entertaining. And Y'all they are so easy.

 I love this cookbook, not only is it filled with mouthwatering recipes it has all these great ideas and tips for hosting the best parties ever. Bring on the appetizers. There are so many creative serving suggestions, unique ideas for what to use for serving trays etc...

The Ultimate Appetizers has party menus that will knock your socks off. Did I mention the drinks? The Ultimate Appetizers book even tells you what you need to have on hand for the ultimate bar at your party or event.

 Dips, meatballs, wings, seafood and many more recipes are included. I love that each section of the book is color coded for easy access to your favorite recipes.

The Ultimate Appetizers is printed in full color with pictures of what I'd say is a good half or more of the recipes. i like it when my cookbooks have pictures.

The first recipe we tried out was "Sugar and Spice Pecans' these are super simple to make and absolutely delicious. The instructions and ingredients are clearly laid out for each recipe.As you can see these turned out fabulous. The flavor is wonderful. I honestly can't believe how easy they were to prepare
