I really like Sam's throw-it-together mentality.

I've browsed through a couple of his other books and really like his recipes--not too fussy, but delicious food.

I picked this book up because I hadn't seen it before, and it's just as good as his other books.

The focus in this book is on inexpensive, easy-to-prepare food.

He's got the book divided into basic/main ingredients (like Eggs, Soups, Pasta & Pizza, Meat, Fish, etc.), and has most of the recipes rated by price (from 1 to 3 'pounds').

He's also got basic techniques and ideas for stocking your first kitchen, and most of his recipes are easy enough for a moderately alert college student to throw together.

If you're veggie, there's often recommendations for how to make a dish veggie-friendly.

Note, however, that the recipes are mostly written with weights (rather than cups), so a kitchen scale will probably be your friend here.

This, the fourth cookbook published by Sam Stern, really lives up to his previous books and improves on them with new recipes and more ideas on modifying simple foods, like crepes and sandwiches. I do find two things disappointing, however-- many of the recipes in this book can be found in his earlier books, and all of the measurements and price estimations are in metric units and pounds. It's very hard to make any of these recipes without a food scale. But as a starving college student speaking from experience, his recipes are lifesavers when it comes to finding healthy foods that are easy to make.
