LOVE LOVE LOVE! I bought this for my friend's daughter who just started college. As a culinary school graduate, I was pleased to see that it has information about basic cooking techniques and tools along with a myriad of recipes ranging from "dorm legal" items (only things that dorms allow including microwave, mini fridge, iron, scissors, etc.) to studio (hot plate, crock pot) meals, and finally through apartment cooking. The recipes are tasty and healthy and provide a welcome change from standard dorm food.

For people who like to cook this is an excellent cookbook !My daughter is off to college and wanted a cookbook for different recipes she could make on campus this one fit the bill.I feel It is geared towards intermediate cooks but could be used by beginners. My daughter is a foodie and a good cook and she loves it! This is the one she is taking with her to school. I bought several but she feels this is the best of the bunch !

For the student ready to move away from microwaving frozen burritos, he has many great ideas. Most of them are designed to fit into "dorm room" cooking - i.e. no open heat source, microwave & rice cooker only. Slanting towards the more sophisticated palate (fresh ginger, baby spinach, goat cheese etc.)

As someone who had never had to cook for themselves full time before, I really liked the introductory chapters explaining different cooking tools and what ingredients to always have on hand. After that though, it turned out to be the same as any other cookbook. Nice recipes but a bit overdone when trying to cook for one person and thus limited on what one has on hand. Sure, one can plan ahead when buying but will have to repeat recipes several times in short order to use ingredients before they go bad.

I recommend the product but more strongly recommend you look at the book in a local bookstore first.
