Although the Carle sisters are the authors of two earlier cookbooks, Teens Cookand Teens Cook Dessert, they found that preparing a meal in a dorm or a first apartment is quite different from cooking in Mom's well-stocked kitchen. Their new book starts with kitchen and pantry basics, then moves on to easy recipes grouped into chapters such as "Survival Cooking," "Cheap Eats," and "Impressing Your Date." Recipe instructions are unintimidating and clear, and many include vegetarian options and other variations. There are other books on this topic, but the attractive design and color photographs, as well as the fact that the authors are students themselves, make this one particularly appealing. For any library serving students and other large collections.

This cookbook is great! I bought it for my daughter this past year when she moved out of the dorms. At first glance its practicality caught my eye and I found it surprisingly comprehensive - filled with all sorts of things to cook that my daughter likes and would be quick to prepare. She says it fulfilled those expectations of mine and adds that she likes the colorful layouts and the easy-to-use instructions. It made a great gift that didn't just stay on the shelf!

Being an 18 year old college student and never cooking anything besides box macaroni before, this book is perfect for me! The recipes are extremely simple and easy to follow, but also really tasty! The ingredients are fairly cheap and easy to get and each recipe makes plenty of food, so you're guaranteed leftovers. It's the perfect cookbook for a newcomer in college!
