I have several cookbooks, but this is by far my favorite. I have never used a cookbook as often as I do this book, and I have consistently had great results. So far my husband and I have tried about 20 things out of this book, and they have all been delicious--cocktails, appetizers, main dishes, side dishes, and desserts.

The best part about this book is the simplicity. Most of the recipes in this book don't have a ton of ingredients, and the ingredients it calls for are usually things I have on hand, or I just need to get a few easy (and inexpensive)items. That is my main problem with other cookbooks that I own: they are beautiful to look at and the food is indeed delicious, but many of the ingredients are things I would never have on hand and I end up spending a lot of money just to get everything I need.

This cookbook has consistently produced delicious results with very little effort. The ingredients are remarkably simple in some of the dishes and it just makes cooking out of this book a really fun experience. I love the Southern California theme too. I am from San Diego and these recipes really do capture the casual yet elegant style of America's Finest City.

I have set a goal for myself that I am going to try every recipe in this book. It may take a little time, but I am looking forward to trying everything--and as I said before, I've never wanted to do that with any other cookbook. My other cookbooks look really pretty on my shelf but don't get nearly as much use as this one, because this one is not intimidating and doesn't require a huge shopping list to prepare the food.

I highly recommend this book. I'm getting one for my mom for Christmas too.

This cookbook has become my favorite "go to" cookbook. I use this cookbook almost every week whether it be for dinner parties or cooking for my family. My favorite recipes are the salmon burgers, the choclate cheesecake, the lemony orzo salad, and the clam toasties. I get compliments on every dish I have made and shared. I have also given it as hostess gifts and holiday presents, it's always a hit. This book is a MUST buy for yourself and your family and friends!

This is a total MUST HAVE for your cookbooks at home. Very simple, yet sophisticated recipes that are sure to please. Recipes are organized based on the time of day--breakfast, brunch, lunch dinner, cocktails, midnight snack--along with complete menus. I really really love this book. But the best part is that its purchase supports the Junior League of San Diego's mission and 100% goes back to supporting its efforts in San Diego. You won't be let down with this one! [...]

I love Southern California cookbooks and cuisine. This book is refreshing to look at and the recipes are even more fresh and tasty. It really captures the essence of the San Diego lifestyle and meals to go with it. I really enjoy this book and always look to it when I'm entertaining. Congratulations to the Junior League of San Diego for creating such a fabulous cookbook.

I can't say enough about the Junior League of San Diego's California Sol Food cookbook. It is a staple cookbook at my house with Southern California favorites such as corn salad, asian lettuce wraps, amazing guacamole, margarita cake and many more! The photography is beautiful and this makes a great gift to accompany a Williams-Sonoma/Crate and Barrel/Pottery Barn/Sur La Table/Amazon gift certificate for a wedding or shower!

In the Junior League cookbook tradition, this one is a standout!

The recipes in this book are fresh, delicious, and uniquely Southern Californian in flavor. In May, I made Mother's Day dinner for my mother-in-law and used recipes from this book. She was so delighted that she purchased a whole case of books to give to her friends. The photography is superb, the outlines of the meals are helpful, to say the least, and the recipes are scrumptuous. This book is a winner!

Please buy this wonderful cookbook from the Junior League of San Diego. You only pay $[...] plus tax & shipping and the proceeds will directly benefit the community projects run by the Junior League.

By far this is my favorite cookbook to own and give as a gift for bridal showers, birthdays, or the holidays. I love that it includes recipes for cocktails. :-) I've given this as a gift to women AND men and have been warmly thanked by all. It even earned the approval of my boyfriend's sister, who has a Master's degree in Public Health from Johns Hopkins. She is a tough critic when it comes to food and was impressed by the variety in California Sol Food and the light, healthy dishes. Buy your own copy (or 2) today!
