What a fantastic and fun cookbook! There are so many great recipes in here that will be fun to use for entertaining whether for a Friendsgiving or other gathering. The cookbook has lovely accompanying pictures, easy to follow recipes and a well organized index. It's easy to use and engaging to the eye. This cookbook is definitely one that would get a great deal of use. It could be a wonderful gift idea - - especially for someone just starting out on their own who wants to have friends over periodically.

Thank you to NetGalley for this ARC. I voluntarily chose to review it and the opinions contained within are my own.

I plan to prepare these recipes well ahead of hosting or attending a Friendsgiving! What a great book. The recipes seem easy to prepare which is a good thing in my opinion. I liked the variety too. They all seem like foods my family will enjoy so that is a win. Thanks to NetGalley for the ARC. Five stars!

As an autumn lover, this cookbook gave me so many new recipes to try this year. I think all of them are simple but look so tasty. Also the little illustrations all throughout the book are so cozy. I can't wait to use some of the recipes hosting my friends for a cozy autumn night in.

This is the cutest Friendsgiving cookbook!
I had so much fun reading the little quirky puns and side notes. I have no doubt this would make the cutest hostess gift, a bestie gift with a couple of the ingredients, or a fun white elephant gift. I think the mix of recipes between appetizers and drinks is so perfect for holiday gatherings. The images were so beautiful and clear and I loved the font throughout the book!

Thanks to Netgalley and Quarto Publishing Group – Rock Point for this arc in exchange for my honest review.

I don't celebrate thanksgiving (i'm not American) but I'm so impressed by this book. There are so many yummy things in there, from starters to desserts. There's even enough to please vegetarian people.
I really love that there's a photo for each recipe also. I think there's just enough recipes to please everyone in this book. Yum.
