"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!"

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."
