cookbook for busy student

Leslie | Jan 31, 2006 03:12 PM

My college student dauighter is moving into her first apartment and off the meal plan. Any suggestions for cookbooks with simple recipes, not requiring a lot of ingredients, cooking tools besides the obvious or too much time to prepare.She loves good food and eating out, but is also interested in cooking good food and is familiar with the basics of cooking- or else she is known to call me for help. Unfortunately she or her friends do not hav a lot of money or time. I am thinking of something along the lines of Rachel Ray's thirty minute books, but NOT Rachel Ray. I think the usual basic cookbooks ( Bittman, etc.) for starting out would be a little too daunting for her at this time. I looked at Amazon and there were several cookbooks for college students listed. Any ideas?
