This is certainly a sound idea--27 party plans for birthdays, holidays and other celebrations. The party themes themselves are dated but acceptable: Pitter-Patter Baby Shower, Dinosaur Birthday Party, Hearts and Flowers Wedding Reception. The recipes, however, depend on packaged foods too often for even a corporate-inspired volume. This flaw yields recipes lacking in imagination ("7th Inning Hot Dogs," aka wieners wrapped in crescent rolls) or appeal ("Peanut Butter Nog," made with peanut butter and instant vanilla pudding mix; "Glittery Gift Cake," made with ready-to-spread frosting, vanilla chips and edible glitter). To Pillsbury's credit, recipes are accessible, and microwave instructions and nutrition information are included.
