Praise for Recipe for Disaster
“With lively humor, Ballis pulls together a diverse cast, evocative renovation details, and delicious food descriptions in this well-seasoned novel. Fans of Mary Kay Andrews will enjoy this.”—Booklist
"Recipe for Disaster...won me over with its unique heroine—think of Rehab Addict from the HGTV network. Ballis' heroine is a perfect blend of tough and vulnerable as she struggles to straighten out her messy life."—Heroes and Heartbreakers (a Best Read of the Month)
Praise for Out to Lunch
"Ballis delves again into foodie women’s lit with flavorful results. Some of the story's pleasure derives from the sheer Pinterest-quality abundance of goods—cookies, cashmere and Chicago restaurants abound. A recipe index is offered for aspiring chefs. But Ballis has real things to say about relationships and grief, and at its best, this book is honest and touching. A cozy meal, with dessert."—Kirkus Reviews
"A unique and satisfying story which slowly gains momentum like a carefully cooked meal."—Booklist
“Heartfelt and hilarious….A deeply satisfying look at food, friendships and the families you create for yourself when you need them most.”—Jen Lancaster, author of The Tao of Martha and Here I go Again
"A sparkling, heartwarming novel with all the elements of a can't-put-it-down read--a heroine you'll root for, unexpected plot twists, and dangerously good descriptions of food!"—Sarah Pekkanen, author of The Best of Us
"A funny and heartfelt tale of friendship, food, and how difficult it can be to open yourself up to love, you’ll want to devour Out to Lunch in one delicious bite. This is Stacey Ballis at her witty and chef-tastic best."—Amy Hatvany, author of Heart Like Mine and Best Kept Secret

Ballis speaks lovingly of old houses, dear friends and good food . This is the second book that I have read by this author and she is becoming a favorite. It is only a matter of time and money before I read her every word.
Thoroughly enjoyed the story.
