Overview


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!

Editorial Reviews

KLIATT
Anyone living on his or her own for the first time will benefit from using this wonderful book. All the recipes have clear directions that include the prep and cooking times along with the equipment that is required. A special feature, "don't let this happen to you," describes how the recipe can turn out to be a disaster if some of the steps are not followed correctly. A special introductory section shows how to follow a recipe, measure correctly, basic chopping techniques, what to have on hand, where to shop for food, and how to set up a kitchen and clean up various areas of the kitchen, along with kitchen first aid. Special menus include recipes for a romantic dinner, a picnic menu, and cooking for a crowd. Some of the recipes are: Weekend Morning French Toast; Asparagus with Browned Butter; Tomato, Mozzarella and Basil Salad; Asian Noodle Salad; Sautéed Salmon with Lemon; Pesto Turkey Burgers; Portobello Mushroom with Garlic Mayonnaise; Roasted Turkey Breast with Cranberry-Orange Sauce; Spicy Chili; and Walnut Chunk Brownies. This would make a perfect purchase for any high school graduate! KLIATT Codes: SA—Recommended for senior high school students, advanced students, and adults. 2004, Barron's, 154p. illus. index., Ages 15 to adult.

    Great gift

    Purchased for nephew going away for college. Has great recipes for 1-4 people. Simple and delicious. Lots of excellent information about what to keep in pantry, how to shop at grocery stores, measurements, and substitutions. Excellent gift for a beginner! Even for those needing some brushing up on the basics!
