"Ultimately, these aren't recipes you're likely to try at home -
though they might be just the thing when your refrigerator is
bare." - NPR Books
"The book is a frank, touching and funny collection of prison recipes and memories about life on the inside. Using the things available, a toaster oven and a microwave, he includes 'P's Jail Break,' with Ramen noodles and Doritos, and 'Good as (expletive) Seafood,' featuring cans of calamari, octopus and peas." - Billboard
"Now you might say, 'But I am not in prison, why would I make this?' The answer to that is simple, because it is delicious and affordable." - Munchies (VICE)
"The cookbook is as much a memoir of Johnson's time behind bars as it is a recipe guide." - Food & Wine
"Cooking with commissary items like ramen noodles, canned tuna, and butter packets allows inmates a small glimpse of the food they enjoyed on the outside, a hint of the flavor and seasoning their families enjoyed around the dinner table back home." - First We Feast (Complex)
