Ramen Noodles are famous for being the preferred “cheap eats” for college students. And even though Everybody Loves Ramen is directed primarily at that group, there are recipes in the book for everyone to cook and enjoy at home.

The book is written tongue-in-cheek, and has dozens of useless, albeit fun, facts about ramen noodles, as well as games (word search, crossword, etc.), and some recipes that are actually really good. Some of the recipes are a little “iffy,” such as Ramen Cookie Delight, but college students and others who are broke and only have ramen and cookies in the house may just want to try that recipe. It will surprise you how many dishes can be made with ramen noodles when someone has a good imagination like the author, Eric Hites.

The recipes are simple, most have minimal ingredients, and the directions are easy to follow. Because of the simplicity, it makes it easy to add other ingredients that happen to be left-over or waiting in the fridge to be used up. The Fit-for-a-King Salad (which I added sliced red pepper for color, and leftover turkey breast to make it a main dish) is one that I will make again; it was delicious. The Popeye Cashew Ramen Salad was a hit with my family, and the Porky’s Stir-Fry was also good.

Other interesting recipes worth trying are Big Shrimp Omelets, Hawaiian Chicken Ramen, Hijacked Taco Bell Ramen, and Ramen Pizza Party. Actually there are dozens of recipes that are unique, sound good, and are worth trying.

This book is a great choice for anyone who likes ramen, as well as those who like quick, easy meals. It is also great for those who like to laugh.
