December 2007 Cookbooks of the Month: Martha Stewart’s Baking Handbook AND Martha Stewart’s Hors d’Oeuvres Handbook

Welcome to the links thread for the December 2007 Cookbooks of the Month, Martha Stewart’s Baking Handbook AND Martha Stewart’s Hors d’Oeuvres Handbook You may wish to bookmark this thread for future reference, as it contains links to the threads for these two cookbooks.

Please note that there is an older book, now available in paperback, called Martha Stewart's Hors d'Oeuvres: The Creation and Presentation of Fabulous Finger Foods. If you have that book and would like to cook from it instead of the newer book referenced here, please begin a new thread and be sure to make clear that it is the older book.

Here's the thread for general discussion, recipe planning, links, and previous picks and pans:

Because the contents pages for each of these books is rather extensive, and to avoid what would otherwise be seventeen individual threads, I’m combining chapters in a way I hope makes sense. And because the chapter titles in the Hors d’Oeuvres books are very, very long, I’ve listed the corresponding chapter numbers for each book in the hope it will make the correct thread easier to locate.

Here are the links for full length recipe reviews. Please select the appropriate one.

  1. Also, some may be interested in a thread started last year December when a few folks cooked from this book as well as the Dorie Greenspan book:

    1. Is this a NEW Martha Hors D'oeuvre book?

      I have one from about 10 year's back and I still use it and love it! I used many recipes for entertaining this past New Year's
