Let’s set the record straight. When I entered my first apartment in Butler’s Apartment Village last fall, I set the stove on fire. I’m not a horrible cook, but making meals when the fancy strikes remains a far different beast from the responsibility of feeding oneself every single meal. That said, I still did not want to take the commuter meal plan option, since my schedule didn’t allow for convenient meal times in Atherton Union. Also, this way ended up being cheaper.
So I learned a few quick and dirty recipes perfect for the college student chef.
In the next few posts scattered randomly throughout the semester, look for recipes like:
- Spaghetti and Meat Sauce
- Fried Rice
- Chocolate Banana Pancakes
- Curried tofu, spinach, and chickpeas
- Not Quite Ramen
- Tomato basil salad
- My friend’s Healthy S*** in a Pan
If you are an experienced cook, I guess some of these might seem obvious. For the new cook, half the trouble isn’t making the food — it’s trying to think of what to make. On that note, if anyone has some easy (quick, inexpensive, yummy) recipe suggestions, please chime in!
