Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Fresh cranberry sauce

    • cespitler on November 02, 2012

      Like many of us here, I refuse to eat the sauce out of a can! But, Martha Stewart's Fresh Cranberry Sauce changed how I thought about this dish. It's made with fresh orange juice and a bit of sugar (though I always use less than the recipe). Delicious! And, anything that is left is fabulous mixed with butter and served as a spread on toast the next day.

  • Chocolate pumpkin cookies

      So I was looking for a pumpkin cookie recipe and came across this one. As I was gathering the ingredients, I wondered - when do I add the pumpkin?? Then I realized these are pumpkin SHAPED cookies. Ah! Still - I thought the recipe sounded interesting, so I made them anyway. The outcome? They had a tendency to break apart and the pepper didn't seem to add much (and that was the part I was intrigued about). They were just alright for me.

  • Fried green tomatoes

      This recipe reflects how I would instinctively make fried green tomatoes--when I am luck enough to get ahold of some!

Publishers Text

"Martha Stewart's New Entertaining" is for those who want to entertain at home for friends and guests, but have limited time for devising menus, shopping for ingredients and for actual cooking. The current shift from formal entertaining to a more relaxed, simpler style of menu structuring enables us all to enjoy the art of entertaining. We are able to concentrate on two basic things instead of a massive overall plan that requires infinitely more time and planning than most of us can spare. Martha Stewart's aim in writing this book is to provide us with many new menus and recipes, incorporating the relatively recent availability of extraordinary foodstuffs (fresh seafood from around the world, exotic fruits and vegetables) that make giving a party more unusual and original. 17 festivities and special occasions that Martha Stewart covers include hors d'oeuvres in the garden for 40 people, Mother's Day lunch for eight, wedding engagement dinner for 24, menus for a winter weekend and a candlelit Christmas Eve buffet.
