Budget-Friendly College Cookbook: Eating Well with Limited Space, Storage, and Savings is a cookbook written especially for starving college students. The author, Sara Lundberg, has included quick, easy recipes with minimal ingredients that are appealing to younger cooks. The recipes call for a lot of convenience foods such as ramen noodles, canned and frozen vegetables, coleslaw mix, and bottled and canned sauces, which are certainly time savers, and which don’t take up much space to store. The recipes are easy to follow for beginning and busy cooks. There is a good variety of recipes which include flavors from all over the world.

Even if you aren’t a starving college student, these recipes will be a welcome addition to the recipe repertoire of singles and small families. Although difficult to imagine, there are those who actually hate to cook, and these recipes will appeal to them because they take so little time to prepare, and use a minimum of prep such as chopping and grating.

Another plus to this cookbook is the fact that the recipes are budget-friendly. Even if you aren’t on the verge of starving, it’s always nice to know that there are good – even delicious - dishes to prepare before payday and when there isn’t anything in the bank account.

Unfortunately, there are very few photographs in this cookbook. Those cooks who are inexperienced and in a hurry need photographs because they don’t yet have the skill to put ingredients together in their heads to know how a dish will turn out.

Nevertheless, there are plenty of good, easy, appealing recipes included, and for those who don’t need the photos, this will be a good choice.

Special thanks to NetGalley for supplying a review copy of this book.
