    Mitch Please

    I really enjoyed the simple recipes and the way kitchen basics are explained; however, as someone who mostly lives off of fast food, I didn’t know what a lot of things were supposed to look like! (I’d never heard of things like a “frittata”.). Without pictures to show what the finished product of each recipe looks like, this is NOT a book I will be regularly turning to. Otherwise, it would be a five star cookbook for me.

    I think this cookbook is a must have for ANYONE who is short on time, short on budget, and short on cooking skill. The author starts by explaining how to stretch your budget, how to build a pantry, basic cooking skills and basic cooking equipment. The recipes in this book all require just a basic knowledge which makes it perfect for young adults or anyone who is just starting their journey into cooking. The best part, in my opinion, is that the recipes are 5 ingredients or less and many use the I think this cookbook is a must have for ANYONE who is short on time, short on budget, and short on cooking skill.

The recipes in this book all require just a basic knowledge which makes it perfect for young adults or anyone who is just starting their journey into cooking. The best part, in my opinion, is that the recipes are 5 ingredients or less and many use the same ingredients so it automatically makes the meals more frugal and less wasteful. The recipes are flavorful yet simple and most make 1-2 servings which is nice for singles or couples. There are many vegan and vegetarian dishes and nearly all the recipes are what I would consider healthy which is a bonus! I appreciated that nutritional information is included with the recipes too. I actually saw several recipes that I could double and make for my family that would be crowd pleasers - a difficult task with a 3 year old sometimes. I highly recommend this cookbook! I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

    I looked at this cookbook because I'm thinking about what to work on with my college sophomore over the summer - she'll have an apartment with a kitchen and is looking forward to cooking for herself - she has some ability in the kitchen but needs more ideas and understand of the store to dinner table process. The problem with this book is that, while it is targeted to college students, it doesn't give enough information to a true newbie [there is some] and it doesn't acknowledge the well known bu I looked at this cookbook because I'm thinking about what to work on with my college sophomore over the summer - she'll have an apartment with a kitchen and is looking forward to cooking for herself - she has some ability in the kitchen but needs more ideas and understand of the store to dinner table process. The problem with this book is that, while it is targeted to college students, it doesn't give enough information to a true newbie [there is some] and it doesn't acknowledge the well known budgetary limitations of most college students. It was ok, the recipes look fine although not particularly unique [this is the age of finding a recipe for anything you'd like a zillion times over on the internet after all] but I didn't feel like it fit the bill of being a college cookbook. YMMV of course.

    As a hopeless college student who survived by the grace of companies like grubhub and ubereats, I love this book! Very easy to follow layout and simple explanations, perfect for the timid first-time cooks :-) most of the recipes are very healthy too, and the book is loaded with little hints and tips about how to improve on the recipes, and even a small section for foods to eat when you're hungover and the like x) there's also a simple, yet comprehensive glossary and section on kitchen tools and As a hopeless college student who survived by the grace of companies like grubhub and ubereats, I love this book!

    This cookbook had several easy recipes for a college student in an apartment since the pantry needs several spices, veggies, meats. I felt this book had a few healthier and good starter recipe book for your college student.

    Audrey picked this up on our last trip to Parnassus Books in Nashville. We took turns reading it on the way home, and I decided I needed my own copy. It not only talks about fast and easy meals, it explains in non-motherly language (ie no finger wagging) about how to stretch ingredients, how and when to shop, and the nutritional value of each meal. It even has vegetarian and vegan recipes. Very highly recommended for anyone going back to college—or anyone cooking for themselves for the first tim Audrey picked this up on our last trip to Parnassus Books in Nashville.
