“Pillsbury C’Mon Over: Hassle-Free, Hustle-Free Entertaining”

Wiley, $19.95

If the thought of planning food for a party makes you feel less than festive, the folks at Pillsbury have come to your rescue with the spiral-bound “C’Mon Over.” The colorful cookbook presents simple recipes and party-planning tips for more than 30 themed gatherings, organized by season. For summer you’ll find a tapas party and a candlelight deck party. In fall there’s a Halloween party. For winter there’s poker night and a holiday brunch. And in spring there’s a Mother’s Day celebration and a festive shower.

Look inside today’s Food section for back-to-school celebration recipes for Santa Fe Nectarine Salad and Beef and Green Chile Enchiladas from the book.
