Entertaining with Love: Inspired Recipes for Everyday Entertaining

Mark J. Sievers. Mark-Ryan Group, $30 hardcover (240p) ISBN 978-0-615-86783-0
A mix of straightforward, traditional recipes, such as Hello Neighbor Blueberry Muffins and Brown Butter Cake, and creative twists on classics, like Apples & Sage Creamy Lasagna, make food blogger Sievers’s cookbook perfect for anyone preparing to host a dinner party. The recipes presented are neither overly indulgent nor lightened for everyday eating. A few of the starters would make good cocktail party fare (a small section of cocktails is also included), but most dishes are designed for traditional sit-down meals. Entries are divided into basic categories—main courses, desserts, etc.—but the book is otherwise themeless. Recipes themselves are sufficiently detailed and easy to use, and scattered personal stories depicting Sievers (host of the Web series “From My Kitchen to Yours”) and his husband, Ryan, as a cozy, everyday couple add warmth. Food photographs are adequately composed—though some are blurry or overexposed, and none are printed on glossy pages. Readers will find this a useful, if somewhat disjointed volume, full of solid favorites and useful tips and tricks for entertaining.
