I love cookbooks, so I was excited to get the chance to review this book. I don’t often cook for crowds but found the things she thought were great for them, and bad for them very interesting. Love the whole section on what kids will eat, and what to cook for picky eaters. This book was jammed packed with useful information! My kids and I were very anxious to try some new recipes…. They were yummy and crowd pleasers.. I can see myself using this book for reference numerous times.
