Look, Dude, I Can Cook!; Four Years of College Cooking Made Easy
by Amy Madden
Helps college students create over 100 healthy & satisfying meals away from home.
When Amy Madden's son, Mark, went off to college, he would frequently call her for recipes of the home-cooked meals he was missing while learning to live on his own. Amy's daughter Megan—who was already a junior and knew her way around the kitchen—also called often for cooking advice. Finally, Amy decided to write down her recipes for Mark and Megan, which gave her the idea to create a resource for helping every college student make fun and nutritious meals to get them through their first years away from home.
Look, Dude, I Can Cook! Four Years of College Cooking Made Easy is divided into four sections: Freshman, Sophomore, Junior, and Senior. In progressive fashion, students can start with simple recipes and work their way toward fuss-free gourmet pleasers for everyday cooking and fun occasions alike.
Providing students with the know-how and confidence to cook healthy and delicious meals, Look, Dude, I Can Cook! offers shortcuts, money-saving tips, and even suggested tailgating menus. Also included are lists of essential cooking utensils and pantry items, as well as a glossary of cooking terms. Proving that just because you’re off to college doesn’t mean you have to do without home-cooked meals; this cookbook can be the perfect going-off-to-college gift.
