Summary: great for military wife
Comment: This is a great book to cook out of when my husband is traveling and it's just me & the kids. With kids, I need healthy, not lots of left overs, quick, and variety. My husband and I both have experience cooking, and like books like this as they give us new ideas to spring our newest creations off of. These "begginer" recipe books are also great for more experienced, creative chefs. We aren't vegetarians, but there are recipes that meat could be added into. It is hard to come by great vegetable recipes and recipes with lots of healthy ingredients like fiber and vitamins. So this book is great health wise. I've found a few good veggie recipe websites, but this book is also a must! I will be ordering more for gifts. I wish the author would combine this one with the original in a binder type book, so it would be easier to leave open on the counter.

Summary: Perfect for college
Comment: This is one of the few books that really IS practical for a vegetarian college student like me. I love this book, and it is really fabulous for getting you started in everyday vegetarian cooking, and healthy too! I really do wish it had nutrition info, but I just sit down and figure it out for the recipe I'm doing before/while its cooking. Many of the recipes are wonderful and surprisingly low cal. My favorite is the creamy broccoli soup, but I find that rather than adding a little rice to the soup, I serve it over brown rice and it is WONDERFUL! Super easy, super cheap, and healthy. Oh, and did I mention its just about 100% kitchenette compatible!! I only wish I had this when I was living in the dorms, I might not have gained those freshman-15. This really is a must-buy graduation gift.

Summary: Finally! Great vegetarian cookbook!
Comment: Having been vegetarian for a short period of time, I was worried about how I was going to eat when I went from full-time student and part-time worker to working the 40 hour weeks with an hour commute round-trip.

There are so many facets of the book that I applaud:

Most importantly, Starving Students vegetarianizes the comfort foods that students (and busy professionals) crave . . . just like mom used to make. There isn't much glamour to many of the recipes, but that's a refreshing change from many of the cookbooks I've bought in the past. You don't go to this book for a sophisticated, gourmet meal. You go because you're hungry, don't have time to chop 50 things, and want to feel full and satisfied. Another thrilling point is that the majority of the recipes are prepared in under 20 minutes, and those that take longer involve baking in a oven with a short prep time (though I wish the time indicated on the recipes differentiated between the amount of time you're actively cooking).

And finally, I am so relieved to find a vegetarian cookbook with ingredients that I have heard of and have seen in a regular grocery store. There's nothing more frustrating than perusing a cookbook and getting excited about a recipe to only find that I would need to go to a specialty store to find ONE ingredient that I may never use again. The ingredients are simple, easily obtained, and though most of the recipes are for 1-2 servings, you can very easily double the ingredients so you have leftovers for lunch and avoid half an onion sitting in the fridge.

While I didn't find them particularly useful, there are lists included to help you stock your kitchen (basic supplies, utensils, appliances, and cooking ingredients sorted by supermarket department). There also are hints and tips to chopping and preparing for the easily-intimidated.

This isn't a book intended for the gourmet vegetarian chef. However, if the gourmet chef was exhausted, had a slow week at the restaurant and needed to pinch pennies, he or she would go to this book for some vegetarian comfort food.

Summary: it gets the job done.
Comment: this book gives very easy recipes using very few ingredients, which is really helpful for students (or anyone, really) on the run. many of the recipes are palatable, but do not expect anything gourmet.
