I'm not afraid to admit that I love Martha Stewart. I know a lot of people don't like her, but I've always been a fan of her do it yourself ways. The first time I came across this book, Martha Stewart's Hors D'oeuvres Handbook, I was actually at a very chic dinner party in New York City. I was browsing the host's collection of cookbooks and immediately fell in love with this one. It covers everything: homemade crackers, millions of dips, toasts with every topping imaginable, puff pastry with a bajillion fillings, and so on. I was so engrossed with looking at this book that my friends had to rip it from my hands and drag me back to the party. No worries though, I haven't forgotten it and it's on my birthday list. If you're all about hosting parties — like moi, PartySugar — this is a must have for your collection.
