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.

Format: Paperback
This is an amazing cookbook! This cookbook is chock full of easy to make, delicious recipes...not the run of the mill type of ho-hum recipes often found in other cookbooks. Despite the title, this cookbook has something in it for everyone, from the novice to the seasoned pro. I know...my wife has got tons of cookbooks, but none as good as or as helpful as this one! Dave really knows food and he shares his knowledge with you as if you were talking to a friend. I bought this cookbook for my two nieces who are either in college or are getting ready to go. They both loved it! The only problem they had was trying to pry it away from their parents, who also loved it
