    Dollycas’ and LizzieCas’ Thoughts Since my accident, my daughter Lizzie has become the cookbook collector of the family and she loves to bake and cook so I thought it would be fun if we reviewed this book together. Hannah Hart puts an awesome take on our year-long festivities with fun stories and recipes. As well she gives a great look into other days just as “Mental Health Day” and “Love Our Children Day”. Some may think this book is more of a storybook instead of a cookbook we feel it’s a happy Dollycas’ and LizzieCas’ Thoughts Since my accident, my daughter Lizzie has become the cookbook collector of the family and she loves to bake and cook so I thought it would be fun if we reviewed this book together.

Some may think this book is more of a storybook instead of a cookbook we feel it’s a happy medium of both. We really enjoyed the author’s messages to introduce the book, each month, and each holiday. They are fun and informative and gave the book a more personal feeling. The pictures are colorful, some are pretty amusing showing readers Hannah Hart’s great sense of humor. This will be a book we pull out all year through and we can’t wait to try the recipes for this holiday season. The green bean casserole graced our table for Thanksgiving (a new twist on an old staple). With cookie baking right around the corner, we will take Hannah’s advice to have a cocktail. She also includes some excellent advice about kids and explaining Santa and the magic of Christmas. This book would make a great Christmas present to share with loved ones. We already have started out lists!

    I love a good cookbook, I leave them on my coffee table for conversation and I read them cover to cover. This was awesome, funny and entertaining.

    I got this book thinking it was a cookbook. (It’s not really, at least not in the traditional sense. If you’re expecting to find recipes with specific measurements & clear instructions, rather than funny asides, on how to make a dish, you’ll be disappointed.) I knew of Hannah Hart mainly because a friend of mine was in a movie with her years ago. I don’t know her from her YouTube videos or TV shows, so I didn’t really know what to expect.

I really enjoyed this book. It was (mostly) light reading, but it made me think about the celebrations we have. I learned about a few new ones, and I really enjoyed Hannah’s personal stories and self-help musings. Reading it felt like a friend was talking to me, a friend who gets that all great things in life somehow involve food as part of the communal experience.

    This book is 100% fan service for enthusiasts of Hannah Hart's YouTube channel, My Drunk Kitchen. The photos are pretty and the recipes are accessible--no need for imported truffle oil among your ingredients. However, many of the holidays are B-list or C-list holidays or made up altogether. Still an enjoyable read--but I am a fan of My Drunk Kitchen, so take my review with a gain of salt! This book is 100% fan service for enthusiasts of Hannah Hart's YouTube channel, My Drunk Kitchen.

    First of all, much like My Drunk Kitchen: A Guide to Eating, Drinking, and Going with Your Gut, this is not a cookbook. It is a funny, well-written book. If you are a long-time fan (as I am), the personal growth Hart displays even from Buffering: Unshared Tales of a Life Fully Loaded to this book is incredible. Highly recommend for fans, people who like to laugh, or people looking for happy lesbian representation.

OKay, this looked like a fabulous book but it is REALLY HARD TO REVIEW A BOOK when you are only given 13 pages to review and 7 of those are cover pages and an index. (It would be nice to warn people that it is only a very small sampler!) The four recipes that were given looked nice, but how can I review a 244-page book when I get a total of one half of one per cent (to be precise, 0.0532786885 of the book) My friend loved her first book so I will undoubtedly buy it for her birthday gift this autumn...we can drink and cook our way through it together! As always, I try to find a reason to not rate with stars as I love emojis (outside of their incessant use by Millennials on Instagram and Twitter) so let's give it ☘ 🎅🐰 (based on her last book's rating by me, not this one!) NOTE: I STILL cannot link this review to LinkedIn - there is something wrong with the linking/programming and it will not happen.

A lot of our patrons are fans of Hannah and after reading this cookbook, I know there will be a long list of holds for this book. I loved how she had a cocktail for each month and she had a unique dish to pair with it while still making it humorous and fun. We can't wait for the release of this book and there were some recipes in here that will be perfect for our cooking demo program. We will consider adding this title to our Cookbook collection at our library. That is why we give this book 5 stars.

The original book felt very natural with all its flaws and unappealing food. This one was well put together and the food stylist did a good job creating lovely displays, but it felt less Hannah Hart and more glossy magazine in all its fake-ity. The food looked nice, but I didn't start watching My Drunk Kitchen to see pretty food. I kind of wanted that natural feel back. As with the first book, this is less a cookbook, and more a self-help book about appreciating life and making a lot of puns. While this one seemed to have more actual recipes than the first, it's more of a place to get ideas rather than detailed how-tos on making the food. Most of the recipes are very vague and do not include measurements (shout out to Ella's mom for the perfectly-detailed Black Olive Stuffing recipe; it looks mouthwatering and I definitely want to try making it). The book is a mix of crafts and cooking ideas. Some of the holidays did not have either attributed to them and just gave some of Hart's thoughts on life, which was interesting, but I kind of wanted something to go along with it. Others were just semi-related ideas and tips rather than anything "useful" (go out for oysters, try out different hot dog toppings and presentations, etc.). The pictures are fun and visually appealing. It was entertaining to learn about various lesser-known holidays, read some silly puns, and get to know Hannah Hart a little better. It's been a while since I read the first one, but she appeared more open about her personal life in this one. You can definitely tell that Hannah Hart has grown a lot as a person in this book in comparison to the first one. More mature with the same fun humor. Reading/listening to Hart's jokes and thoughts on life is always a good time. Overall, an interesting read.

    More a Self-Help Book than a Cookbook Although the title says this is a holiday cookbook, and it does cover the major holidays, it’s more about inventing holidays as background for giving suggestions about food and presenting a philosophy of life. Some ideas come off better than others. Seeing what it’s like to have children by duct taping a watermelon to your abdomen is one of the weirder ideas.

I was unfamiliar with the background for this book. It’s an offshoot of Hannah’s successful YouTube videos. I think some of the holidays would work better on the screen. However, the pictures in the book are colorful and often amusing. Recipes are rare, at least ones I’d be tempted to cook. Some recipes for Thanksgiving might be worth a try like garlic mashed potatoes and green bean casserole. However, it seems that most recipes are really about talking for life and Hannah’s philosophy. The book is fun to read, if you don’t take it too seriously. I received this book from Dutton for this review.

    Not what I was expecting. This felt more like she was under obligation to fill a contract to write a book to me. She mentioned some holidays every month, some odd off the wall ones like cheese pizza day, cookie day, left handed day, and my favorite drink wine day (Feb 18). She did touch on Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Halloween, Thanksgiving day, Christmas and New Years too. She basically gave her thoughts on it. She didn’t give recipes for every holiday just about a 10 total for the whole book. Not what I was expecting. This felt more like she was under obligation to fill a contract to write a book to me.

I will add in her list of food for dogs, what she listed as not safe is not complete!! Rosemary and Rosemary Extract are extremely dangerous for most dogs that have seizures, yet most companies use one or the other. Anyhow, as a whole, I was disappointed this time in her book.

    Hannah's newest book captures the same fun and funny energy of her brand, and as such this holiday cookbook offers plenty to enjoy! Adding humor to a cookbook has now become a bit of a trend, so when authors can do it well, their books stand apart from others.

This book is more food for thought than it is cookbook, and it is a very close adaptation of Hannah’s My Drunk Kitchen show.

    OK, so I read her first book so long ago that I forgot I was lukewarm on her. I don't watch much YouTube, so I'm not that familiar with her non-printed work.

    I love Hannah, and I was very curious to see how she wrote this book. I still strongly prefer her memoir writing. Some things in this book, like in My Drunk Kitchen, feels forced. Also, whole Hannah admittedly speaks with a skepticism, this book has a strong mood-dampening underlier. While it tries to be fun a whimsical it sometimes comes off as doomsday.

    A wonderful romp through the year with clever “recipes”, helpful advice, and a full sense of self that not only charms but engages the reader. As a fan of Hannah’s previous works, both digitally and in print, I was excited to see what this installment would offer. She has once again brought her signature voice to play, talking both cautiously and optimistically about life, love, the future, and most importantly personal health.

    I received and arc of this title from NetGalley for an honest review. For a cookbook, I found this book just okay. It may read differently on a kindle, but it was really choppy and there weren't many pictures to go on. There were too many things in bold and colored print and it took away from the recipe and I found it hard to go back exactly to what I was looking for. I found it to be a frustrating cookbook more than anything. I received and arc of this title from NetGalley for an honest review. For a cookbook, I found this book just okay.

    If the goal was to make a cookbook unlike any other, the author succeeded. I found the book was disjointed and had little of what I would classify as a cookbook in it. Have not watched any of Ms. Hart’s videos, so am not familiar with her style. But I’ve been reading cookbooks for decades and this particular one would not add anything to what I already own. I received an advanced reader copy from NetGalley, and I’m leaving my review voluntarily.

    I was excited to read through this cookbook since I have been a fan of Hannah's since I saw her on " I Hart Food" and YouTube. The galley I received was not a full version but it focused on a few holidays and I found the photos to be fantastic. I also loved how easy to follow the recipes were. The writing is witty and entertaining, almost like having a conversation with Hannah herself. I plan to buy a hardcover copy when this is published and leave it out on my counter to use all year long!

    Magic has got to be real, because Hannah has somehow managed, for the third time, to write exactly what I needed to read at exactly the time I needed it. MDK Holidays is a triumph. It’s funny, witty, smart, heartfelt, and wise. Reading this book felt like getting a stern talking to and also a hug from a really great friend. It’s reminded me to seek out the joy, to find the celebrations, and to embrace the people in my life that make my life special. My biggest takeaway? Don’t save champagne.

    This wasn't very good. I enjoyed Hannah's memoir book and love her youtube content. However, this was just a mess. No real recipes and the writing was kind of blah. I get that it was supposed to be lighthearted and encouraging; I just don't know who this book was for. Also, some of the font choices were really bizarre and hard to read. This wasn't very good.

    I grabbed this with a bunch of other Thanksgiving and Christmas cookbooks and it was absolutely useless for that, but super fun anyway. Want to celebrate dog day? Video games day? Be a millionaire day? For those and a bunch of other random holidays (plus some regular ones), she has included recipes and some suggestions for how to celebrate.

    I’ve been reading a chapter of this book every month this year to correspond with the holidays listed inside the book. It has been quite the year. Luckily, I had the voice of Hannah Hart remaining consistent throughout it all. This book is the perfect combination of funny, poignant, and mouth-watering.
