Matthew Mead and His Lovely Books

Back when I first started this here blog, I mentioned a website that I liked, This website is chock full of wonderful things. I was delighted to receive an email from Matthew Mead not too long ago asking if I would like to review one of his books. Of course I jumped at the chance and Matthew sent me THREE of his books: Entertaining Simple, Gifts from Nature and Matthew Mead’s Halloween.

I love all the books. Matthew has impeccable taste, is a great writer, and the recipes that are included look divine.

Entertaining Simple is fantastic. So many wonderful entertaining tips, decoration ideas, menus and recipes…it’s really lovely. And Gifts from Nature is a wonderful resource, complete with great ideas for every season of the year.

And if you’re dying to get your hands on Matthew Mead’s Halloween, you’re in luck…it’s on newsstands now. I saw it at Safeway just the other day. I love Halloween and this book did not disappoint. My favorite part of the book is all the pumpkin decorating ideas. CUTE stuff.

I’ve told you before, I only write about products and books that I like. And usually when I like something and write about it…well, it’s good news for you…perhaps I’m seeing a giveaway in your future? You’ll just have to check back to see!


  1. I’m always looking for a good book on how to decorate for Halloween. I find myself buying cheap decorations that never work with each other.

    glad I’m not alone! I especially love how the book gives suggestions for supplies, dishes, serving platters, etc…and then how all those items can be multi-tasked for different uses, it’s just helpful! makes me want to do a pantry makeover. 😉
