Overview

The college experience revolves around many things, not the least important of which is food. From dorm room cuisine to tailgate parties to care packages, higher education can present some distinctive new demands on a person's cooking skills, time, and recipe file. This special cookbook will help both students and parents meet these challenges. It offers an array of good fare for late-night suppers, gatherings at your house, and regional specialties to impress the new roommate from New Jersey. Edna M. Smith, mother of two Texas Aggies, prepared this specially tailored cookbook from the recipes submitted by the members of seventy Federation of Texas A&M University Mothers' Clubs. The nearly five hundred recipes focus on the needs of families with college students and of the students themselves. Those who are novice cooks, perhaps just starting their own families and traditions, will appreciate the helpful suggestions for solving culinary mysteries. Any cook will enjoy the varied dishes that have been favorites for parties, covered dish suppers, and family feasts.

Editorial Reviews

Mary M. Fisher
"If Aggies are known for eating and their mothers are known for cooking, a newly-published cookbook proves that both do it well. . . . Other categories in this attractively-designed recipe book focus on party fare for college students' visits home; time-cutting microwave recipes for both mother and college-age child; family and regional favorites; and desserts. "This collection of hearty and simple-to-prepare recipes ranging from Candy Orange Slice Bar Cookies to Deep Dish Chicken Pot Pie will appeal not only to college age students and their mothers, but to beginning homemakers and busy homemakers as well."—Mary M. Fisher
