"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."
