I like to physically hold a book and have recipes ready accessible and even “earmarked” when looking for a recipe. Each appetizer recipe in this paperback is a 2 part recipe. Ingredients and easy step-by-step directions. The pictures are in black and white. The beverage section with the smoothies is my favorite section. Lots of fried recipes which I will adapt somehow. The Appetizer cookbook is a nice little easy to follow cookbook.
