Cookbook Review: Best of Bridge Holiday Classics

I love to cook but I am really passionate about baking. Over the years I have amassed quite the collection of cookbooks and one of my favorite cookbook publishes ~ Robert Rose sent me one to review. This is a fabulous cookbook for the upcoming holiday season.

Title: Best of Bridge Holiday Classics
Publisher: Robert Rose
ISBN: 9780778804871

Synopsis: This new collection will meet all of your holiday entertaining needs, from casual potluck get-togethers to festive brunches, and buffets to elegant sit-down dinners and cocktail parties. It's all here ~ from Christmas morning Wife Saver and Sumptuous Spinach & Artichoke Dip to Old-Fashioned Butter Tarts. The Food Gifts & Leftovers chapters take the edge off holiday planning.

The cookbook has 225 recipes for special occasions. I love that it has a spiral bound and a hardcover so it will lay flat on your counter when you are using it. The foodie photography in this cookbook is really festive look and it makes you want to try out that recipe right away.

Examples of Recipes in the Book:

* Christmas Morning Wife-Saver
* Midnight French Toast
* Cranberry Scones
* Nippy Cheddar Rabbit
* Brie with Sundried Tomatoes
* Eggnog Supreme
* Senate Salad Bowl
* Classic French Onion Soup
* Roast Turkey with Sage Bread Stuffing
* Fruit & Nut Shortbread
* Chocolate Raspberry Torte
* Pumpkin Cheesecake
* Crazy Crunch
* Christmas Marmalade
* Plus many more!!!

The printing is what I call a "medium to large" print which makes it very easy on the eyes when you are reading the recipes. I appreciate that because my eyesight is not as good as it used to be. I love that everything is organized nicely by chapters and almost all of the recipes call for everyday ingredients that you can find readily available. Instructions/directions are given for each recipe and they are presented in a very easy & understandable format.

After looking through the book, I have already decided that come New Year's Eve when the family is here for our annual party, I am going to make the Best Seafood Lasagna recipe on page 114. I think it's going to be a real winner along with the Hot Artichoke Dip on page 56.

This cookbook has something for everyone and I personally think that many of the recipes will quickly become family favorites!

You can find the Best of Bridge Holiday Classics Cookbook at Robert Rose, as well as various other cookbooks that they have to offer. I highly recommend them!
