Maybe my expectations were too high, but some of the meals are pretty involved, and "Easy Meals" might be a little bit of a misnomer. They're good meals, but not necessarily easy. Also, some of them require a lot of ingredients, so those looking to this book as an "easy and cheap" possible recipes book might be disappointed. If it were advertised differently it might get 4 or 5 stars, but it just wasn't what I expected.

I received this in the mail last week and after flipping through it a bit, picked up a 6-pack of ramen on my next visit to the grocery store. My husband joked that times must really be tough if I'm feeding our children ramen, but he loved the cold sesame noodles (one of his favorite things in the world) and we all enjoyed the herbed noodles. So far I've only experimented with the sides but I'm really anxious to try her vegetarian recipes and appetizers as well. I found myself bookmarking almost every page, so I know we're going to have a lot of fun with this book!!

Ramen to the Rescue is chock full of ideas on creative ways to use ramen noodles. I'll admit, I haven't revisited ramen since college days, but this book makes me want to run to the store and stock up on a few packets. I particularly enjoyed Harlan's intro that delves into the history of ramen, how it is made and tips on how to stock your pantry to make the recipes with ease. While there are lots of Asian inspired dishes, you'll also find surprises like Ramen-Breaded Onion Rings, Chicken Pot Pie, Ramen Alfredo and Lemon-Ginger Cheesecake with Ramen Crust. I can't wait to start cooking!

I had not cooked with ramen since college days, but this book has changed that. I tried the spaetzle recipe in honor of Octoberfest and was very pleased. Normally this dish is so hard to make, but the ramen version captures all of the same flavors in a fraction of the time.... I am going to cook it again for an upcoming Octoberfest party.

I also really appreciated the information about the different types of ramen in the back of the book - I did not know that there was a fried and non-fried version, but I will definitely look for the non-fried in the future.

Ramen to the Rescue : Over 100 Creative Recipes for Easy Meals Using Everyone's Favorite Pack of Noodles by Jessica Harlan is a cookbook filled with recipes for everything from appetizers to dessert using ramen noodles.

There are no finished food photos in the book, so it's not a cookbook for the people who love cookbooks filled with full colored photos. It's recipes. Lots and lots of recipes.

I've done a lot of what I thought was creative ramen cooking. This book showed me how much more could be done with these noodles.

When you're in a hurry, when you know you want to have a real meal but don't want to spend too much time cooking, when you're just saving money by eating at home, this is a great go-to book for recipes.

My son tried this one out for me. He went through the book and marked all the recipes he wanted to try. Then he made up a shopping list and made the family dinner. He picked a beef and mushroom stew for the first recipe he tried. Doubling the recipe and using minute steaks instead of the flank steak called for, he made stew for the 4 of us for under 10 dollars, and it was so good that my husband went back for seconds.

We've tried a few more of the main course recipes since then. Most of the recipes take under a half hour to prepare and lots of vegetables and small meat servings make them economical.

A lot of Asian style recipes make this book absolutely delightful for my family, especially my son. The Spicy Peanut Noodle Wraps can be made with ingredients we usually have on hand, and he likes those so much more than peanut butter sandwiches.

There are also many salad recipes that would make great summer lunches. Since most of them have minimal cooking, they won't heat up your kitchen too much.

This book is so easy to read & understand. Directions are clear & recipes are exciting.
I never knew there were so many things to do with Ramen Noodles. I thought you just boiled them & dumped the little seasoning packet in.
My 19 year old daughter has already tried to steal the book from my house. I guess it will make a great Christmas gift for her this year.

Very informative. Loved the little sidebars with Ramen facts. The recipes can be somewhat complex, but most are simple & quick enough. Have enjoyed trying the simpler recipes. I would recommend this book to any Ramen connoisseur.

I always thought of ramen as a go-to food when I was in a hurry, but without much flavor or variety. This book really changed my thinking! It begins with interesting facts and history of ramen, plus it has 10 easy ways to jazz up ramen that are very tasty! The recipes are easy to follow and so creative that I have received many compliments from family and friends, plus several requests for the recipes. (I told them they should get a copy of their own!) Our favorites are Spicy Peanut Noodle Wraps, Lentil Noodle Soup, Ramen-Crusted Cinnamon French Toast and Black Bean and Green Chile-Stuffed Peppers. The recipes are so clear and well-written that my three children have enjoyed doing a few on their own. Their favorite is Chocolate Peanut Haystacks. I love how the author, Jessica Harlan, incorporated a suggestion, fact, or narrative before each recipe. This is definately a great cookbook for your own kitchen, plus the perfect gift for a busy single or a family to cook together.
