Description of the Book
The Land O Lakes Easy Entertaining Cookbook (You’re Invited…. Menus, Recipes & Ideas for Easy Entertaining) is a shiny, soft cover cookbook published by Land O’ Lakes Kitchens in Minnesota. Copyright 1988 by the publisher. The cookbook is a retail edition - not a remainder or ex-library. Contains approximately 50 pages with full-color photos of some dishes scattered throughout a handy index at the back, and tips too.
The cookbook contains recipes in categories including Appetizers and Snacks; Beverages; Breads and Rolls; Desserts and Sauces; Main Dishes; Salads and Salad Dressings and Side Dishes. Inside are menus and recipes for fun entertaining themes, like:
“Winter Warm-Up” -- perfect for after skiing, skating or a day outside in chilly weather; “Night at the Movies” -- a very pleasing menu for having a few friends over to watch a flick; “Sunshine Brunch” - nice any time but particularly pleasing in the spring and appropriate for a shower; “Game Plan” -- a selection of tasty, easy grab and enjoy dishes for sports parties or game night with friends; “Great American Barbecue” - outdoor or campfire grilling; “Old-Fashioned Ice Cream Social” - you guessed it; “Gourmet Club” -- when you really want to impress at a nice sit-down dinner; and “Harvest Moon” -- a nice spread for a fall-themed party. Please see the photos for some of the menus, photos of prepared dishes and the recipes inside.
The cookbook measures approx. 8.25” x 5.5” and has a clean, glossy pictorial cover made of heavy card stock that may be “wipe-able.” It is very, very clean and bright and appears unused with the only wear noted being a few very tiny, spots rubbing to surface of the exterior cover (please see photos). No writing, inscriptions, cooking notes, soil, stains, tears creases, bends, moisture damage, or foxing. Fabulous condition -- you would never know that this vintage cookbook is going on 25 years old.
Overall, I rated the cookbook Like New, as it has barely any wear. It’s an extremely nice cookbook from the collectible Land O’ Lakes series with a nice selection of easy yet tasty recipes suitable for family or guests.

Payment and Shipping
We accept payment via PayPal. Domestic shipping and handling is via Media Mail (Book Rate) and includes a USPS tracking number. Please note that Media Mail is subject to postal inspection and can take from 6 to 15 business days to arrive, and in some cases longer depending upon delivery location If you require faster shipping, please select one of the other shipping options at checkout or email us for a shipping quote.
To ensure you receive your items as soon as possible, we package our parcels and drop them at the post office the next business day, so long as payment is received by Noon CST. Please also note that we deliver all packages to the post office timely, yet once the package is in post office hands, we have no control over when tracking information will be updated or actual delivery time. That being said, should any package encounter an unreasonable delay (which so far is quite rare), we would be happy to follow-up regarding its status.
We offer discounted, combined U.S. Media Mail shipping if you purchase multiple items within 2 days and contact us for an invoice prior to final checkout.
Just email us via Ebay to request an invoice when you are through shopping. The invoice will show a $2.00 credit for each additional item purchased. Then payment for your items can be made at one time -- and you save $. How easy is that?
Once final checkout/payment for your item(s) has been received, we will promptly package them for delivery. [So sorry, we cannot offer combined shipping discounts once items are packaged for shipment.]
We take pride in the quality of the items we sell and use professional, quality packaging. Please note that we do not attempt to profit from shipping and handling charges. These charges are calculated based on the estimated item weight, plus costs for packaging materials and transaction costs. We want you to be happy. If we could make shipping cheaper, we would!
We will ship internationally to certain countries and may offer First Class International and/or Priority Mail International Shipping; however, depending upon the size and weight of the item, other shipping methods and charges may apply. Payment must be made in U.S. dollars; we cannot accept other currencies.
To see the price for international shipping please go to the SHIPPING AND PAYMENTS Tab near the specific item details in Ebay and select YOUR country from the drop down list - then you can see available options and pricing. Unfortunately, if you do not see your country on the list of countries in the drop down under the shipping tab in Ebay, we do not ship to that destination at this time.
If an item is available for international shipping to your country and you are interested in combined shipping for multiple items, please contact us to request a shipping quote before bidding, as the cost of international shipment on certain over-sized or heavy packages can be costly. We would like you to have that information before you place a bid.
Import duties, taxes, and charges are not included in the item price or shipping cost. These charges are the buyer's responsibility. Please check with your country's customs office to determine what these additional costs will be prior to bidding or buying.
The international shipping options shown are the ONLY options offered and may include Priority Mail International and/or First Class International. If both options are available, please read the following carefully before making a decision about which option you prefer. (Media Mail shipping is only available within the U.S. -- the post office does NOT offer this method for international items.)
Priority Mail International (PMI) includes free electronic package tracking/delivery confirmation (if the destination country scans the package - and they don't always do this!) With PMI, the post office states that packages are typically delivered to major markets in a destination country within 6-10 business days (though we have experienced delays of 5-10 days for some remote destinations).
First Class Package International (FCI) may be a less expensive alternative -- but the U.S. postal service provides no delivery time estimate, so it may be slower, and there is no free delivery confirmation or electronic package tracking with this option at this time (as there is with PMI).
So, FCI is sometimes cheaper, but it may also take longer and it will be difficult for the post office to tell us where a package is in the delivery process with this option in case you have an inquiry. We provide this information so that you will have a better understanding of what to expect in terms of package delivery. We are sorry international shipping is not less expensive. Unfortunately, the postal rates went up substantially this year, though we try to provide options that are as reliable and affordable as possible.
Ebay calculates the postage amount based on the postal option you select and the weight of the item plus any fees for handling (our true cost for packaging materials and shipping-related costs). For both options, we estimate the weight as follows: if an item is under 1 pound, we enter an ounce weight, and if it is over 1 pound, we enter a range, such as 1-2 pounds, 2-3 pounds, 3-4 pounds. First Class International is only available for items weighing no more than 4 pounds including packaging and there are size restrictions. Priority Mail Flat Rate also has certain restrictions (the item must fit in pre-sized packaging, for example). We bubble wrap international items BEFORE they go in padded envelopes or shipping boxes, so if they won’t fit with this necessary layer of protection, we must go up to the next size when using Priority Mail Flat Rate Packaging. Priority Mail Boxes are expensive, but we do not want you to receive damaged items. Just thought you would like to know!
[FYI: Priority Mail International Shipping may utilize specific packaging which must be ordered from the U.S. Postal Service. While we will make every attempt to ship items within two days of payment receipt, shipping may be delayed up to ten days pending availability of shipping materials, though we make every effort to keep these in stock.]
Returns will be accepted provided that the item is returned in the same condition as sold. Buyer is responsible for return shipping costs and any insurance against damage or loss. Refund, minus original shipping cost, will be posted to buyer’s PayPal account within five days of item return.
