Sisters and coauthors Megan (the longtime vegetarian) and Jill (the skeptical carnivore) go veggie in this latest addition to their popular cookbook series written for hungry, on-a-budget, and kitchen-shy teens and young adults. Chapters include Survival Cooking, Cheap Eats, Avoiding the Freshman 15, Just Like Mom Makes, Food for the Masses, Cooking for One, Party Food, Impressing Your Date, and Desserts. The book contains more than 90 appealing and accessible recipes such as Pasta Primavera, Enchiladas, Spanikopita, Maki Rolls, and Vegan Chocolate Cake. Tips for vegan substitutions for many recipes and 50 sidebars featuring food trivia and handy factoids complete the book.
The Carle sisters have been cooking together since their early teens, and they are the authors of three other cookbooks. Their follow-up to College Cooking offers easy vegetarian recipes for all kinds of meals, from "Just Like Mom Makes" to "Impressing Your Date," along with lots of tips and useful advice. Will be in demand by both students and recent graduates. Judith Sutton - Library Journal
