From the Back Cover
It's hard to forget your first apartment—its cramped closets, one too many roommates, and oh-so-tiny kitchen—or the first entry-level job, vibrant but hectic social life, and newfound independence that come with it. For Cara Eisenpress and Phoebe Lapine, that first small kitchen was a blessing in disguise, a haven from adulthood's worries and thrills. In the Small Kitchen, inspired by their popular website Big Girls, Small Kitchen, is their debut cookbook, filled with more than 100 delicious recipes for cooking and entertaining within the constraints of a twentysomething life. Whether you're packing Pesto Chicken Salad Sandwiches for a cubicle picnic, staying in with a cup of Workweek Tomato Soup and Cara's Classic Gooey Grilled Cheese, whipping up Three Onion Dip and Pimm's Cup for a cocktail party, or making Shrimp Risotto with Sweet Peas and Leeks to impress a special dinner date, Cara and Phoebe will show you how to stretch your imagination and your pocketbook to get the most out of your small kitchen without sacrificing the flavor or fun of savoring a good meal. In the Small Kitchen will get a new generation into the habit of cooking and make your kitchen a place everyone wants to be.

la rubrique "recevoir ses amis pour une brunch en dormant jusqu'à midi " m'a vraiment éclairée.
Les recettes sont simples et savoureuses, fini les plats préparés.
mes préférées : la recette du sandwich au poulet avec sa sauce au pesto, la purée de patates douces avec ses oignons caramélisés et mention spéciale aux savoureux cookies au chocolat qui sont recommandés par les auteurs du livre pour "un ami qui vient d'être largué, a perdu son emploi ou a eu une dispute avec son colocataire". C'est la première fois que je ris en cuisinant.
Je l'ai commandé d'occasion avec le vendeur betterworldbooks.com du amazon market place et c'est une réussite : livraison dans les temps et livre impeccable bien qu'il soit d'occasion, à recommander.
Despite not being able to get a tracking number, I was content with the communication I got from the seller.
The book is FULL of awesome recipes for people with small kitchen spaces, such as myself.
I look forward to trying the recipes!
