    ITEM#: 11189741

    For nearly a decade, The Healthy College Cookbook has offered time-pressed, budget-crunched students a simple way to enjoy home cooking in their own small apartment kitchens or even dorm rooms. Written by students for students, the book offers hundreds of simple, healthful alternatives to dreary cafeteria fare. The first edition was so successful it returned to print 17 times.

    Now, this best-selling cookbook has been revised, expanded, and enlivened for a new generation of students. One hundred brand-new recipes have been added to the old favorites, including expanded breakfast options, recipes for the ever-popular George Foreman Grill, new smoothie creations, and pizza toppings for storebought crusts, English muffins, and pita bases. Recipes require only a handful of easy-to-find ingredients. The book is packed with vegetarian options, and every recipe is as nutritious as it is delicious. Most can be prepared in less time than it takes to order pizza.

    Most college students are new to cooking, and The Healthy College Cookbook contains a wealth of information and tips for the novice. It explains cooking terms, describes common spices, and offers basic, sensible advice on stocking a kitchen with equipment and food staples.

    The book isn't just for novices, however. Even the most discerning young palates will appreciate zesty Garlic Green Beans with Tofu or lively Mandarin-Mint Salad. These recipes are so quick, so inexpensive, and so delicious that they're bound to become dinner party favorites, years past graduation.

    • Good, but Use Caution

      I bought this book for my brother who is just learning to cook out on his own. He doesn't have a lot of time, etc, so this book looked perfect for him. I think it will be useful, as it contains a lot of basic info including how to stock your kitchen with supplies, along with a wide variety of recipes. One thing I really liked was that it included nutritional info for each recipe, wow! One thing I didn't like was it contains some not-so-truths. It says that eggs, particularly egg yolks, are not very good for you. It advocates using only egg whites or even artificial egg whites, which contain almost zero nutrients. Meanwhile the yolks are very nutritious foods, containing good cholesterol and fats that your body needs. It also advocates using skim milk which is also not that great for you. Other than that I think this is a good starter cook book for people with busy lifestyles.
