Welcome to December! We've got two books for this month that will get you though all your holiday entertaining. Use this thread for general discussion of both books, and the threads linked below for reporting on recipes.
MARTHA STEWART'S HORS D'OEUVRES HANDBOOK (1999) - I am going to re-use the original threads for this book from when it was COTM in December, 2007. Note that COTM was young back then. There are not many reports, and they may not follow our usual COTM format. Please use our current format when adding to the thread. If the recipe has been made before, reply to the first report of the recipe, and put recipe titles in all caps.
