A lot of "college student" cookbooks overestimate 2 things: the resources freshmen will get access to, and the skill level of their readers. This pocket-sized version is a refreshing break.

— Nicholas

   • Hummus and Veggie Wraps

“Nelson’s tome gets down to the basics.”The Star-Ledger

“No bigger than your hand but can teach you tons of useful things about cooking.”College Magazine 

“This is, by far, the best guide for college students to learn to cook I’ve ever seen. It is clear, interesting, and has tasty, filling, healthy recipes.”—Dr. Jessie Voigts, Wandering Educators

“Nelson delivers some core pieces of wisdom about cooking in college”—Publishers Weekly
