    This book appears to be wonderful as far as nutrition and variety, however I had a bit of bad luck with the first recipe I chose to make. The blueberry Coffee Cake was a flop! The cake batter ended up so thin and the cake never baked – regardless of how long I left it in the oven. I have not tried another recipe since, as I am not sure I trust the book at this point. Hopefully the next recipe I follow will have a better end result!

    Maybe 4 years ago, when I was first living in a dorm, I might like this book. Now, I don’t think it’s good enough.

    There are two main reasons for it, 1) there is the internet now. Almost every college student has access to an internet. And with it one can find thousands and thousands of recipes, both hard and easy to make. Why would you want to buy a book with less than 100 recipes if you can instantly have many more on the net?

    The second reason is the lack of variety. Now this could be due to the fact that the book has only 150 pages, but still not everything I had hope for is there. For example, there are lamb chops for sale, nope, the book has no recipes for that. Or I wanted to bake a whole chicken/turkey, not in the book. Furtheremore, easy ethnic recipes should be included, but hardly any is there. I haven’t been able to cook any of the recipe from the book and be proud enough to bring it to a pot-luck.

    The plus about the book is the good introduction, which discuss the kind of spices there are, and the different methods of cooking. However, in terms of quality (these aren’t cuisine-caliber recipe, and where are the pictures?) and quanity of recipes, I wouldn’t recommend you purchase this book for yourself.

    I bought this book online without seeing it based on the online reviews. However, I was disappointed with the recipes, most of which did not seem very appealing.
