I agree. Each chapter is devoted to a particular theme for a Friday night get together. So this includes main, sides, salads, desserts, drinks etc. plus a description of the kind of night and other little details that are really great to read. Lovely author - lovely book.
Bonnie Stern is one of Canada's great cookbook writers. I have several of her cookbooks as she partnered with the Canadian Heart & Stroke Foundation and published heart smart books filled with great recipes.
This particular cookbook has to be my favorite of hers. With several recipes that I continuously go back to, it is one of my most stained books (much to my husband's dismays). Recently, I shared this book with members of my cookbook club - it took forever for me to get it back home.
Well worth a try!

This cookbook will truly crack you up!!! It had my husband and I laughing to the point of tears! Pierre Lamielle has created, illustrated and written the best little stories to go with each recipe. I think he even won an award for this cookbook!
The borscht is fantastic! All the picky Ukrainians in my family (I am one of them) loved it. Highly recommended!
I have been very pleased with this cookbook - I find the recipes turn out delicious and are loved by kids and adults alike. Been well used at my house.
The marinara recipe is easily doubled and I put it in 2-cup measures in the freezer - a good one to stock pile!

My family always raves when I cook something from Julie. Food on Sticks has to be one of my favorite chapters of all. Imagine - a whole chapter about food on sticks!!! How fun (and ridiculously easy) is that?
This cookbook was actually written by my neighbor! She's done a beautiful job of putting together pictures - it's a gorgeous book to look at and it really is chock full of recipes - many more than I expected. I went to her cookbook launch and taste-tested some recipes - favorites are the salad with dill and cucumber, the chocolate cake, and for sure the raspberry cream cheese muffins. It was a good eye-opener for me to see how many ways I could throw quinoa into my existing recipes as well as how to incorporate them into meals for the...
