Makes me hungry just thinking about them!

I have been making dinners about once a week using the recipes from this book I'm still trying to find the one recipe that is a dud.

I bought this cookbook when it first came out and have always recommended it to friends who like to cook. I have confidence in the recipes because I know that each was tested by the KCJL cookbook committee, which is probably one reason they include such great notes. Among my favorite recipes: Cheddar Carousel, Hearts of Palm Salad with Herb Dressing, Szechwan Chicken, Sesame Asparagus, Creamy Lemon Rice, and Coffee Toffee Pie. Makes me hungry just thinking about them!

This is probably my all-time favorite cookbook (and I have many, many cookbooks). The recipes range from simple to prepare meals for a busy weeknight to elegant meals for entertaining guests or clients. My family's favorites are the Chicken Romano (very easy, very elegant) and the Mizzou Barbecue Sauce. I whipped up an extra-large batch of the BBQ sauce last year and gave it with my grandma's brisket recipe to our friends and neighbors. They raved about how good it was (and well it should be given that Kansas City is famous for having some of the world's finest barbecue). The cookbook also has inventive and tasty vegetable, dessert and pasta recipes, as well as a brunch section which I use every year for a Christmas brunch. I highly recommend this book. If you love to cook, you will not be disappointed.

I have made almost everything in this book, and it comes out great! There is a lot of variety and you don't need exotic, hard to find ingredients. This is a first class cookbook that should be on every cook's shelf.

I stole this cookbook from my mom's kitchen after trying a couple of the recipes she prepared. The all-out favorite recipe is the Gazpacho Blanca. Make double or triple batches as friends will come back for more and will want to take some home. Other great recipes: Parmesan chicken, Spinach provolone soup, Curried chicken spread, and strawberry spinach salad.

You know how we're always being asked "If you were stranded on a desert island and could take only ONE [insert item here]...? Well, this is the one cookbook I'd take (and I have over 200). I'm on my second copy, because my daughter unapologetically stole my original one and took it to her new home when she married. We're both fans; in fact, the very first recipe she ever cooked "all by herself" was the Swiss Braided Bread, when she was about nine or so. And I've given *BP* as a wedding present countless times. Whatever raves the other reviewers have given, well, goes double for me. Love this book!

Beyond Parsley is one cookbook I always have nearby -- and I have many, many cookbooks. I am renowned among my family members and friends for e-mailing special recipes -- and many have come from this special gem. I have too many favorites in the book to list but if I had to select just ONE, I would choose Cossack Cheese. That one is a WINNER in every respect, and has gained the love of people around the US to whom I have sent the recipe. D. Ray Fuller Jr., Dallas, Texas

A friend of the family was a member of the Junior League in KC after this book was published, and made a few dishes from it for the holidays. I loved the White Salsa and other recipes so much that I bought the book in order to find out what else is hidden in its covers. I reccomend this book to everyone who enjoys cooking. Many thanks to the ladies of the Junior League of Kansas City, Missouri.

We would go hungry without this book! This is the cook book we use far and away more than any other. We have even started some family holiday traditions from the recipes i.e. the green beans with pears - amazing! You never have to worry about making a recipe because they are all fantastic. It is a regular gift from us and we have been told many times it's the receivers new favorite cook book as well. Buy it, it is any cook's must have!
