My mom said Sonia is really just a book about microwaving meals for one person...crazy talk.
Seven for all Catkind
I followed the instructions in the book for several recipes and each one turned my stool to cement.
Pablito Picasso
The only reason I did not give 5 stars is because I am still struggling to microwave the desserts.

It used to be that I got home from work and the only thing I'd want to put in my mouth was the cold barrel of my grandfather's shotgun. Then I discovered Sonia Allison's Chicken Tetrazzini, and now there are two things.

... a great follow up read to "Drinking for One," "Sex for one," and "The 5 People You Meet in Heaven."

This book was disappointingly cold at the start and end of the book however the middle was full of scalding hot recipes.

I merely mentioned the title of this book to a lady with a shopping cart. Now I'm microwaving for two.

After only 18 minutes in the microwave, the book caught fire. It did have a nice smoky flavor, but the middle chapters caused some paper cuts on my tongue.

This book makes cooking for one so easy and affordable. I can't believe the time I'm saving and the delicious food that I can prepare each and every meal.

The recipes are so easy that I bought 3 more copies for my wife and kids so we can all enjoy these wonderful meals together.

Before this book, preparing food was a long and tedious task. Now I can prepare delicious meals for myself in no time at all. I now have much more time to get drunk and curse my ex and then weep uncontrollably in a corner.

Many of the comments for this Volume are clearly facetious and should be ignored. Most folks are saying this because they only bought her first book, and haven't read any further. Sonia Allison has been writing great books for singles for years, and this book barely scratches the surface of her warmth and willingness to help those who live alone. Undoubtedly, her books have helped me to survive the aftermath of my wife's alien abduction, which was so sudden she could only relay a few scant details about it in that sealed letter she taped in desperation on the bathroom mirror. For months, I would read that note over and over at nights by the light of my unused microwave. Well, sometimes after traumatic events in one's life, we need a guiding hand to pull us through--and when I tripped over this book which was propping up the short leg on my Formica coffee table, and picked it up, and began to read... I began to live again!

And how I have lived! Each recipe in this sacred volume opened a window of delicious flavors to me! I learned with new-found wonder the subtle, fibrous notes of "Bean and Cheese Burrito," and wept with joy when I cradled my first single-serving casserole of "Zesty Chilimac" in my arms--and found myself giggling with surprise when I discovered the crispiness of "Nachos with Tortilla Chips." I could write operas for each of these delectable entrees! How they made me feel... That sense of discovery--that JOY!

But all too soon, I reached the end of the book--a dessert. And as the warm, fruity deliciousness of "Exploding Grape" was washed down by the last of my juice-box, I began to despair. I rushed to the public library, knocking down a parking meter as I parked, and with utter horror I found that it had just closed.
