Amy Sedaris’sÂ I Like You: Hospitality Under the Influence has been out since 2006, but remains one of the most hilarious guides you’re likely to cross paths with.
Sedaris is popular for her role as Jerri Blank in Strangers With Candy and is sister to the also-hilarious author David Sedaris, but did you know that she also cooks, crafts and entertains up a storm? From sending invites to making centerpieces to entertaining old people, Sedaris covers all the bases and sprinkles in lots of practical tid-bits, like second uses for pantyhose (bath sachets!). The recipes are equally entertaining (and real) and run the gamut from Telly Savalas Chicken to Lil’ Smoky Cheeseball (great for parties). Every hostess should have a copy and it makes an equally great gift.
