Entertaining to Please Him
Ladies! Here is your chance to really please your man. Forget all those other ways (nudge, nudge). What a man really wants is the perfect hostess. This book has all sorts of tips on entertaining. From planning to budgets, your parties will make you the perfect wife! Be sure to read the first page from the chapter titled Your Role as His Hostess. I particularly like the cover featuring a Stepford Wife/Fembot serving hors d’oeuvres.
Barbara Taylor Bradford is that Barbara Taylor Bradford of novel fame. Prior to her debut of A Woman of Substance, Bradford authored quite a few nonfiction lifestyle and decorating books. (We featured this one a few years ago.)
So break out the apron and improve your man’s life with help from Barbara.
More Entertaining Books:
Doesn’t breakfast look groovy? Evidently kids back then need to understand how to make a bowl of cereal. As a teen in 1974, I don’t remember this being a particular problem, even for younger kids. I think a cookbook for kids and teens is a wonderful topic for a book, but this doesn’t do the job now or in 1974. Despite the groovy clothes, I also don’t see a lot of “fun” happening.

Submitter: Martha Stewart cookbooks are pretty much a no-brainer purchase for our mid-sized public library collection but I think this one has reached the end of its life span. Also, I’m not sure Martha’s definition of quick to prepare food matches with any other human on the planet.
Holly: Well, leaving the head and scales on the fish definitely saves time (picture below). And that pink dress! Wow!
