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 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!

Format: Paperback
This cookbook has been a staple on my kitchen counter ever since I got it. I have used it both to make dishes -- the gazpacho recipe is great, a perfect simple formula for adding a little something extra to any summer dish -- and learn simple cooking techniques, such as the proper way to boil an egg. No joke: until I read this book, I never knew what amount of time was needed to hard-boil an egg or how to tell if they were done.

I would definitely recommend picking up a copy of Ms. Lynn's Trader Joe's cookbook whether you are headed off to college or just need a simple cookbook full of flavorful recipes.

Format: Paperback
I'm a new mom to a 12-week old son and I have a thing for good food. I like to cook but I'm obviously unable to create the elaborate and diverse meals that I used to make every night before my baby was born. I picked up this book because I wanted to supplement that few quick-and-easy recipes that I already had down pat. Lynn's recipes use products from one of my favorite stores to make delicious meals that taste far more fancy than you'd expect. I've always loved Trader Joe's but often wondered how to use some of their more random items. This book solves that problem, but more importantly, it allows me to reclaim my foodie nature without sacrificing time with my kiddo. Bravo!

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!
