Format: Hardcover
Never underestimate a cookbook compiled by Junior Leaguers. I've always thought the best recipes are the ones that are used frequently and have passed family taste tests over generations - recipes saved on 3x5 notecards, scraps of yellowed paper, and torn out pages from Better Homes and Gardens. These recipes make up most of the dishes in the spiral bound Lubbock Junior League cookbook (circa 1973) that sits dog-eared and food stained on our kitchen counter. Now Peace Meals sits on our counter too, and I hope it becomes as battered and well-used as it's panhandle predecessor. Though many of this book's recipes are decidedly more multicultural and upscale than the casserole and pot roast plates of my youth, they are no less effective. Peace Meals has a beautiful cover and a simple yet elegant design. Oh, and don't forget to read the forward - a wistful reflection of meals gone by that sets the table for this celebration of good food and shared repasts. Two flour dusted thumbs up!

As a busy career professional, I use this book for everyday and special occasion cooking. It's a fantastic compliment to Stop and Smell the Rosemary which I also have in my Junior League cookbook collection.

Peace Meals is a work of culinary art with beautiful photos and easy elegant dishes. My favorites include the Spicy Rosemary Cashews, White Bean Dip, Ratafia, Beef Tenderloin with Gorgonzola Cheese Sauce, Spinach/Proscutto Flank Steak, Carrot Soup and the Frozen Margarita Pie.

The Junior League of Houston does it again! Simply fantastic.

I was a home cook recipe tester and taste tester for the recipes submitted for this cookbook. I have not been disappointed with anything I have made or tasted. Everything gets rave reviews. I have given this a gift to many people and everyone enjoys it. The only downside to this cookbook is trying to decide which recipe to cook first because they all look so good!

This is the best new cookbook. Great recipes for the holidays including the Brandied Chocolate Cherry Bread Pudding and the Pumpkin Mushroom Soup. I also made the Blackberry Shortbread Bars and they are divine!!

I love this cookbook. The photography is stunning and the recipes have been consistently great! My favorite so far is the chicken and spinach lasagna (and I don't even like lasagna!). It is a wonderful collection of recipes from the some of the top chefs in Houston (the women in the Junior League)!

I bought a case of this cookbook when it came out, and am going to order more! This cookbook has been the best thing to give as a gift. So far this fall, I have given it with cooking tools as an engagement present and housewarming present. All of my recipients have had amazing things to say!!!! I will definitely want more on hand as the holidays FASTLY approach.

Having collected cookbooks for many years, it takes a special book to "WOW" me. Peace Meals is one of the best books I have seen in several years. I liked it so much that I have given several as gifts. Guests in my home have raved about it and ordered their own copies. Thank you JLH for a gorgeous book with fabulous recipes!!

Format: Hardcover
Let me start off by saying that this is the first cook book I have reviewed. I am not a very good cook, but I wanted to write in about this book not only because the recipes are easy to make, which they are - but because the book has such a striking physical appearance.

I received this book because I was a judge in a contest for cover design. This was my favorite. The cover is so elegant and serene, with it's shades of white, with the lotus fold napkin placed on top for added effect. The typeset is perfect and chic, and the white titled area is even embossed.

In many ways, when you first pick up this book, you don't even realize it's a cookbook. But once you open it up, you see endpapers with a quilted pattern, and inside, fantastic, easy to understand recipes with gorgeous pictures next to them.

I have tried a couple of the recipes, and they are easy to follow and delicious to boot. There is a varied selection - from brunch to dinner, main courses to desert. There is also information on food substitutions, and measurement equivalents.

So I recommend this book for many reasons. Not just for the (many) terrific and varied selections, but because it's a book you will cherish for years, and even put out on display - it's that pretty.
