Read an Excerpt

Creamy Beef and Broccoli Noodles

3/4 pound beef sirloin, cubed

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

1 onion, cut in wedges

2 cups broccoli pieces

1 can (10.75 ounces) cream of broccoli soup, condensed

1/4 cup water

1 tablespoon soy sauce

2 packages beef ramen noodles, with seasoning packets

In a frying pan, brown beef with garlic powder until done. Stir in onion and broccoli. Cook over medium heat until vegetables are tender. Add soup, water, and soy sauce. Simmer 10 minutes.

Cook noodles in water according to package directions and drain. Add seasoning packets. Serve beef mixture over warm noodles. Makes 2 servings.

Ramen Trail Mix

3 packages ramen noodles, any flavor

15 small sticks beef jerky, cut into small pieces

1/2 pound dried apricots, cut into small pieces

1/2 cup dried cranberries, blueberries, cherries, or bananas

2 cups dry roasted peanuts

Break noodles into a bowl. Add remaining ingredients and stir. Makes 12 cups.

For a more traditional trail mix, omit the beef jerky and fruit. Add 1 pound plain M&Ms, 1 cup raisins, 1 cup sunflower seeds, and 3 cups granola cereal to broken up noodles and stir.

*Any dried fruit combination may be substituted.

Years ago my daughter and I were at the general store at the University of Texas at Austin and we saw this book. She was about 13 years old at the time and I was working on my Library Science degree. We laughed about the book because her current favorite food was Ramen noodles. She said that she wanted the book for when she goes to college. We didn't purchase it at the time, but as we are approaching her graduation I have become nostalgic and I went to Barnes and Noble and ordered the book for a gag graduation gift. When I gave it to her we laughed together and read the recipes, many which sounded delicious. She was delighted to have the book and set to work trying some of the recipes. I had a second laugh when I realized that she was wearing her favorite T-shirt, "Top Ramen, Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner". The book has a plastic cover and is spiral bound so that it can be opened and laid flat. It does not have many pictures, but the recipes are easy to follow and clear. I have learned that Ramen noodle texture is an art form and it is very personal based upon the preferences of the consumer. All of the recipes do make allowances for texture preferences, and it is truly possible to eat well on a Ramen noodle budget.

I counted all the recipes and there are 101 of them. The book must have 2-3 on a page or with pictures. I might get one of the other books in print after looking at it first. A few of the recipes in this e-book are the same but meat added to one and not the other. Another was the same with different kinds of cheese.

Not just for college students, great for senior citizens or anyone on a budget. Bought a copy for a gift and tried some of the recipes myself -- every recipe seems to be better than the last -- going to have to buy some more copies for gifts for my family.

This is the best graduation gift, along with a case of ramen noodles and some cash, of course.

I'm not writing a review. I'm writing a suggestion for the publisher. This would be a very good book for someone in prison but they are not allowed to have spiral books. Is there anyway this could be published as a paperback book? I know a lot of prisoners would find this book helpful, too. I don't know if they can get all the ingredients for the recipes but they may be able to get a few of them.

At first glance, one might think this book is geared solely toward the college crowd. While it is certainly useful for them, its also very useful in our house of 30-somethings on a budget. Many of the recipes don't use the seasoning packet, so those with sodium concerns can relax. Most of the recipes are very easy and simple with cheap things you're likely to have on hand (i.e. hamburger, cheese, onion, sour cream, soup) and a lot of variety (soups, salads, beef, chicken, pork, etc.). Most of the recipes are for 2 servings, making it nice for couples, though certainly you could double it for a larger household. The book even has a plastic cover (to protect from splatters) and is spiral bound so you can lay it flat on the counter and read the recipes while you cook. There is plenty of space on each page to make notes (i.e. "next time add more onions"). The only negative thing is that most of these recipes use several pans -- you need one to boil the noodles in (why are there no microwave directions for Ramen Noodles?) while you're making the bulk of the recipe in another pan, then you have to drain the noodles with the strainer ... you get the idea.

If you are buying as eBook, this one is okay, but don't buy the 'MORE' book, as it's the exact same file. Disappointing!
