Customer Rating: Summary: Fabulous cookbook for 1-2 people, veggie or not! Comment: This cookbook has become a mainstay in my kitchen since I picked it up at a used bookstore several years ago. The recipes are great for working singles or couples, since the ingredients are largely canned, frozen or easy to cook staples. Even though my husband is no longer a vegetarian I still regularly cook meals from it. And the no-egg chocolate cake is quite good, even with the vinegar! Customer Rating: Summary: This Cookbook stays Out on my Kitchen Counter! Comment: I bought this little cookbook about a year ago for my daughter who is in law school. She likes to cook and trys to always eat healthy and mostly vegetarian. I hoped it would give her ideas to create interesting menus. It did. She loved everything in it and would call me and give me recipes she wanted me to try. I finally ordered one for myself. I use this book every day. I have 3 to feed for most meals so I just stretch the recipes a bit to compensate for the amounts I need -- its really easy.
My recently divorced son was visiting for a few days and commented on how much he liked some of the dishes I fixed while he was here - so - I bought another Student's Vegetarian Cookbook for him.
The recipes are very easy to prepare. It is easy to find the ingredients in most regular grocery stores and they don't take a lot of time. I can pop open the book and plan 3-4 days of meals and sandwiches and head for the grocery with my list. We are not vegan, but eat fish, eggs, milk, etc. We avoid all red meats, turkey, chicken so this book works great for us. I love the mountain high chocolate cake recipe. It is so easy and sooooo good. I made it once for a birthday party and doubled the recipe so it made two layers & filled it with ice cream and served it as an ice cream cake.
I appreciate the hints and info on nutrition and shopping tips.
Customer Rating: Summary: Very basic, good if you know NOTHING about food. Comment: I did not enjoy this cook book, I found it to be extremely basic, nothing new. Customer Rating: Summary: Pleased, from a new vegetarian Comment: I am a new vegetarian and have never been fond of cooking. I was a bit scared of getting into the vegetarian world with not knowing what to eat and not wanting to cook anything. So, I chose this book because it has recipes that have quick prep time and most recipes are for 1 or 2 servings. This is perfect for a person that lives by themselves, and you can always double the recipe for extra leftovers or for when you have friends over.
I'm not a student, just kitchen-inept. I enjoy that I am not overwhelmed by the recipes in this book and due to a fast pace life style, I actually find the time to cook these meals! Customer Rating: Summary: a favorite Comment: I don't have much to add that hasn't already been said, other than this (in its original form and new incarnation, which had to be bought for the new recipes and because, well, the old one is falling apart) has been my favorite cookbook since the summer of 1999, and I am a picky cook. I frequently purchase copies for my veggie friends and new cooks alike.
