This was a pre-order from October, released today. I was looking forward to some additional holiday ideas but, with the possible exception of three (Heather Bertinetti's Red Velvet Macaroons, Miss Kay's Sweet Potato Casserole, and the added red sugar sprinkle on the edges of Carrie Morey's Oatmeal Cream Pies), these are everyday recipes with no indication from any of the chefs that they are family holiday favorites. This doesn't mean that any of it is "bad," of course, just misleading, given the title, cover, and December release date.
There is no Table of Contents in the Amazon "Look Inside" feature (as of right now), so here's the lineup: Red Velvet Macaroons, Chocolate Hazelnut Cake (hazelnut syrup only, chocolate cake and ganache filling recipes are not included), Black Pepper Biscuits, Oatmeal Cream Pies, Roasted Eggplant & Cherry Tomatoes, Seriously Basic Roast Chicken, Citrus Olive Oil Cake (Easter is mentioned), Sporty Sugar Cookies (good for tailgates is mentioned), Sweet Potato Casserole (Thanksgiving and Easter are mentioned), Willie's Armadillo Eggs, Pork Ragu, Rattatouille with Poached Eggs & Garlic Croutons.
As an e-book, it reads smoothly, typos are few to none that I could find, clear instructions, type is large enough to read, pages swipe as intended via computer and device reader, there is a listed and clickable TOC in the actual download but you might have to reload to get it to show up. It's organized as a sampler -- two recipes per chef; what appear to be transferred copy pages from their cookbooks, each with a distinctive flavor in layout and presentation; photos for each recipe (except Rachel Ray's Pork Ragu); each chef section separated by ads (cookbook cover photos, newsletter and publisher sign-up, book purchase links).
As a cookbook, the recipes are very doable in baking from scratch; no gourmet or unusual items required (hazelnut liqueur might be the exception); variety includes main dish, sides, dessert; no nutritional breakdowns; some useful tips; a few step-by-step photos (Jessica Seinfeld shows what two stacked and quartered eggplant slices look like; Buddy Valastro shows how to decorate football, basketball, baseball, and tennis ball sugar cookies -- a repeat from the last issue, but it's good if you've never done it before); and two clickable links within the recipes, both from Jessica Seinfeld: a hyperlink to her site with multiple how-to videos, and a video icon that takes you right to how to carve a chicken. Two recipes that caught my eye include Black Pepper Biscuits and Willie's Armadillo Eggs (jalapeno peppers prepared similar to Scotch Eggs).
Bottom line: 3 stars. You said holiday -- "12 Holiday Favorites from Our Home to Yours." Recommend? Sure. It's free so there's no harm in purchasing, and all of the recipes are worthwhile depending on taste, need, interest.
