Weekends are Entertaining

It seems that families today are more pressed than ever for time. What with parents working and the myriad of chores that maintaining a household entails—cleaning, running errands, chauffeuring to soccer and band practice, etc.—many people are looking for a no fuss approach to cooking and entertaining. Helping to meet the needs of today's busy home cooks are the latest additions to The Everyday Cookbooks series.

Many of us spend our leisure time on weekends relaxing with friends and family, and Weekends are Entertaining presents 120 recipes perfect for entertaining two or twenty. Whether your entertaining is formal or casual, indoors or out, you'll find recipes for any occasion. Appetizers and snacks include Spicy Buffalo Chicken Wings and Egg Rolls, while a special "Brunch" section features Glazed Peach Coffee Cake and Blueberry Crepes. A tasty main course is Ham and Seafood Jambalaya, and who could resist desserts such as Raspberry Souffle and Red, White, and Blue Pie? A chapter of "Menu Suggestions" helps you mix and match recipes for anything from a picnic in the park to a hearty Sunday brunch or holiday feast.

All ten volumes in The Everyday Cookbooks include notes that provide low-fat variations—recipes that are low in fat are marked with a heart—as well as short-cuts and tips on how to make meal-time easier and more fun. Most recipes can be made in 45 minutes or less with readily available ingredients, ensuring that every day is a special day around the family dinner table. All combined, the recipes add up to more than two years of dinnertime and entertaining for each and every night of the week.
