While the title points this book towards the college crowd I would like to point it toward the work-at-home-full-time-dad-crowd, I know there are some of us out there.

I've had this cookbook a week now and have used it more than probably all my others combined. I love the one stop shopping aspect: all ingredients are at Trader Joes which is also affordable. The recipes are easy: more than a few of the ones I have made so far have made me say "why didn't I think of that" - the answer is because I am not Andrea Lynn and she deserves the credit. The recipes are delicious, period.

I remember being excited when my local Trader Joe's opened but I felt a little lost, thanks to this book not only have a rekindled my excitement for Trader Joe's but I now have the time to shop and prepare meals that are tasty and satisfying. I've even remembered to eat lunch this week and I didn't even have to wait until my daughter fell asleep to prepare it. Now if you'll excuse me I am off to make a Very Berry Smoothie.

PS I recommend the Pork Buns with Broccoli Slaw, The Avocado Toast, Parmesan and Bread Crumb-Crusted Tomatoes, Chicken Salad-stuffed Tomatoes and well pretty much everything else I made this week.

I have a confession. I'm not in college. I just picked this book up because I was looking for an easy cookbook to make simple meals for my husband and I on weeknights. I picked this up because the ingredients were easy to find and the meals were so fast to put together. The food is delicious and comforting, and I don't feel like I'm neglecting my family cooking duties! I love love the vegetarian section and the variety of recipes! This is a fantastic addition to my cookbook collection.

I have struggled forever to find easy ways to feed myself. I loved this cookbook in that it didn't require numerous complicated or expensive ingredients. I would say that on average I only needed 4-5 easy ingredients. The instructions were also really uncomplicated and easy to understand. I am able to make a meal that is not only easy and tasty, but relatively healthy with so many high quality ingredients. My favorite is the Spaghetti Meets Mac and Cheese. Genius!

I am so excited about using this cookbook. We buy a significant portion of our groceries at Trader Joe's, so I can't wait to try out the recipes. Like many families, we try to budget our grocery shopping to maximize the number of meals we can make. We also work long hours and need quick dinner ideas. This book incorporates both needs. I have tons of cookbooks that I never open (it's kind of a sickness) but I think this one will be dog-eared quickly!

I made the Bratwursts in a Blanket and the Pinwheels with Spinach and Prociutto appetizers for my family when they came to visit. They were quick and easy to make and they were gobbled up before they could even cool down from the oven. The book is great because it is simple to follow and most of all the recipes are easy and quick. I would definitely recommend it!

I actually do <3 Trader Joe's, so this cookbook is right up my alley! The recipes use ingredients that I am already familiar with, just in a new way. I'm really excited to make some of the microwave meals and to not have pots and pans to clean!

I agree with other reviewers: though this would be a great gift for a recent high school grad, it isn't just for college kids! I live in a small apartment in New York with very limited kitchen space, and I think I could manage every recipe in here--and they all sound delicious. I love the idea of being able to pick up all the ingredients I need in one shopping trip, especially since Trader Joe's is so affordable.

Lynn's instructions are super easy to follow, and I love that every recipe is short, usually 2-4 steps. Some are as simple as taking a prefab TJ's meal and juicing it up a bit with some extra ingredients, and some are much more "from scratch," but not at all intimidating. There's a great emphasis on one-pot cooking (easy cleanup!), and even a whole section for meals you can make using only a microwave. And for all that simplicity, every recipe in the book sounds amazing--kind of incredible since there's so many of them.

In short: great concept, very well executed!
