  • I am always on the lookout for fun things to do - fun party suggestions. This book was the most fun I've had in a while just reading all the recipes and ideas. It is loaded. I was thinking BLOCK PARTY when I ordered it, and am truly excited to throw one now that I am armed with so many fun ideas, but so many of the parties presented would also work with ANY group of people, they don't have to be your next door neighbors. These parties would work for getting fellow co-workers acquainted (the bowling party would be a great company Christmas Party), or helping church people get acquainted, and a couple of them would even work for a family reunion.

    I was actually jealous of all the "neighborly" stuff that was presented. I wish I lived in such a friendly, caring, involved, and fun neighborhood as some of the folks who's stories were featured. I think I'm going to try and be courageous and give some of these ideas a whirl. I haven't tried any of the recipes (there are a lot of them) but they all look yummy.

    If you are into throwing parties and are also yearning to be the chairman of neighborhood social committee (held back until this moment only by the lack of creative ideas) you'll *L*O*V*E* that you found this book!!!!

  • I'm not sure what the other person was talking about that the recipes are not very good. I thought they were all easy to prepare and quite tasty. They're not great but they were good and typical party fare. The 4th of July party had some awesome ideas, great party tips and food to go along with it. The All-South BBQ rub was really good. We've used it several times and not just for summer parties.

    The cookie exchange we've done several times over the years and it's become a church favorite. We don't use all the ideas but those ideas branch off into other ideas.

    Overall a worthy cookbook and many good recipes.

  • Nice addition to my extensive cookbook collection. I have so much fun collecting cookbooks, I need a 2nd home to house them all

  • We just moved across the country and are eager to get to know our neighbors, but weren't sure how to meet a large group at once. Peg offers some great suggestions, with much more than just the typical block party. We are parents of many children so time is precious and scarce but these ideas are simple and not expensive. I checked this out at my library...I'm now going to buy it from Amazon!

  • The recipes are good and easy. I get lots of compliments on the food I bring to parties!

  • You can watch Martha Stewart and HGTV all day long and still not know the significance of food as an emotional currency during gatherings. From paying your respects to saying hello to the new neighbors, you'll be reaching for this book so much it belongs next to the dictionary and yellow pages.

  • Every section of this book gives great plans for having fun in your neighborhood. I live in an area that already has scheduled events, but this gives many more ideas for other opportunities to involve those not already involved.

    I also like the sections on what to do when someone moves into your neighborhood, has a prolonged illness, or if someone dies... it give many good ideas on meals or practical things to do.

  • Not only am I a new neighbor, but I am a terrible cook, and Peggy Allen's book is full of fun and super-simple recipes that I cannot wait to try out on the folks next door! It's also well laid-out and enjoyable to glance through. Flip through it, you'll see what I mean.
