In a lighthearted moment you said “Just drop in any old time!” — and now they’re going to do it! Company is on the way, without advance warning. Take heart. This collection of fast and easy party or company treats will have you at smiling ease within the half-hour, ready to enjoy being the perfect host or hostess. Most of the snacks described take approximately ten minutes to prepare; few take very much longer, and none is difficult. All require “everyday” ingredients that you are quite likely to have on hand at any time, and a table of substitutions is provided for those times when one or another staple is lacking. The dishes are listed under the headings Bread; Cakes; Frostings; Bars, Squares and Cookies; Desserts and Pies; Toppings and Sauces; and Savoury Snacks. Spiralbound for convenient kitchen use, and fully indexed.
