College kids living on their own for the first time are startled to realize that now they have to cook for themselves. This attractive spiral-bound book is exactly what they need, serving up easy recipes and basic cooking methods for beginners. The resulting meals are nutritious and appetizing, more healthful and less expensive than relying on the local pizza parlor or Burger King every time hunger pangs strike. Practical advice and helpful tips instruct busy college kids on everything from food and equipment shopping and sharing a kitchen to scrambling an egg and preparing a complete, well-balanced meal. Recipes are divided into these general categories:

Munchies * Breakfast * Main Courses * Pasta and Rice * Soups * Veggies and Salads * Desserts *

Munchies include a great array of snacks and finger foods, from garlicky humus to pizza-flavored popcorn. Breakfast recipes include egg dishes, French toast, pancakes, and others. Main courses range from simple grilled sandwiches to more ambitious entrees like roasted chicken with lemon and herbs. Vegetarian dishes include tasty Portobello mushrooms with garlic mayonnaise, pan-fried Asian dumplings with dipping sauce, couscous and veggie salad, and many others. Among the dessert recipes are instructions for making brownies, cookies, chocolate cake, apple crisp, and a remarkably easy pumpkin pie. Recipes come with a special trouble-shooting and mistake-avoiding feature called Don't Let This Happen to You. Attractive line illustrations and a handy index help make this book a godsend for hungry college kids. Makes a good high school graduation gift!

Review:

"Anyone living on his or her own for the first time will benefit from using this wonderful book. ... This would make a perfect purchase for any high school graduate!"
KLIATT, September 2004
From the reviews:
"Many of these recipes are a lot better for you and cheaper than Domino's on auto dial. ...easy recipes for budget minded students."
Constance Kurtz, USA Weekend, July 30 - August 1, 2004
"Rather than sentence your kid to two bleak semesters of dorm room food, consider bestowing the gift of an age-appropriate cookbook that could save them from delivery pizza and Ramen noodles. ... [a] friendly useful guide to building a kitchen, mastering cooking basics and putting together some dishes that the modern teen would actually be interested in eating. ... best of all for dormitory residents, most recipes are microwave-friendly."
Erin Crawford, Des Moines Register, August 2004
—Erin Crawford, Asbury Park (NJ) Press, September 2004
