My Take:

Everyday Confetti is not your typical cookbook, nor is it your typical special occasion how-to guide. 

It’s a combination of the two for those of us who want to make everyday things special but who do not want to even attempt to be anything close to Martha Stewart. 

I get so frustrated when I get a new cookbook or read an article about “easy” tips for your special gathering and then find out it's something that will take hours to set up (especially while caring for a kid) or that it's a recipe that requires 7 different types of fresh herbs I have never even heard of. 

This book presents simple and neat ideas for lots of different occasions – ideas that just about anyone can do.  The recipes are simple, too.  In our family, we are just plain folk.  We like simple, and this book is right up our alley.  The recipes are also pretty easy to change to your liking, and the celebration suggestions are creative, yet simple and cost effective. 

I will confess that not everything mentioned would be something that our family would enjoy, but there were lots of good ideas that we can incorporate into our family traditions. Because of our busy holiday schedule, we have not had a chance to try the recipes yet, but we are looking forward to doing so later this year.

For simple ways to throw confetti on the everyday, this book is the way to go.

I will give Everyday Confetti ... 4 BookWorms.
