Have dinner on the table in no time

The Little Black Apron: A Single Girl's Guide to Cooking with Style and Grace

Even the busiest, most kitchen-clueless woman dreams of one day making the perfect egg salad sandwiches for ladies' luncheons and baby showers. But until then, she's stuck in her kitchen for one, where she can't tell a can opener from a whisk, haricots from Gruyere, or carmelized from caramel. And even if she could, cooking herself dinner from scratch is the last thing on her mind when she leaves for work in the morning.
That's why The Little Black Apron is the accessory for women in their 20s and 30s. Whether fresh out of college or on her own after a messy breakup, any woman who's on unfamiliar footing in her kitchen will feel like M.F.K. Fisher in no time. Nutritionist Jodi Citrin, chef Katie Nuanes, and writer Melissa Gibson offer tangible solutions to healthy and simple cooking, along with hilarious commentary on what it's like to be all grown up and single. This book provides the 4-1-1 on essential utensils, pantry staples, and basic cooking techniques for more than 100 delicious and nutritious recipes. Price: $10.17
