Just like everyone else here: I learned to cook with this, I still use the recipes (particularly spaghetti with clam sauce) and am getting a copy for my son. I now own over 15 linear feet of cookbooks, but I still use this one.
I learned to cook!

This was my first cookbook over 30 years ago. I used it then and I use it now. I'm buying it for my two daughers now.
A must for young cookingphobics
Published by Thriftbooks.com User , 21 years ago
My first cookbook almost 30 years ago. Now I'm tracking down copies for my college sons. With easy-to follow directions for basic recipes and cooking techniques, this book is laced with humor that, while somewhat dated, still resonates with teens and 20-somethings. If you have highschoolers, snap up all the copies you can find right now before this gem goes the way of the dinosaur---or then again, some publisher may get smart and run a reprint!

As a new cook, i found the text easy to ready and quite informative. I strongly suggest buying this book, it is probably the best cookbook today. My grandma wrote this book for father who has now given it to me.
How to eat at college without fast food
Published by Thriftbooks.com User , 25 years ago
This is the best basic cookbook I have ever read, and I have read many. this book takes you through all the basics, including what to buy for your kitchen, what ingreedients you need on hand, how to plan menus, how to use leftovers, and what you should save from all your cooking adventures. The recipes in this cookbook are simple, and delicious. It provides the college student, bachelor, or anyone who knows nothing about cooking, a daily menu, and step-bystep instructions on how to prepare all your meals. It is especially good for those living in an off-campus apartment with a nice kitchen.
