As a college student, cooking can either get quite expensive or you may not know how to do it and that’s okay! After years of eating Mom and Dad’s cooking, I wouldn’t blame you for not knowing what to do. When I was about to enter college, the only cooking experience I had before college was one cooking class in junior high school. Now, I know that’s not going to get me anywhere when it comes to cooking but when it comes to a recipe book, it’s pretty easy for me to follow directions. This is why I’ve come up with my top three recipe books that are designed only for college students.
Cooking Outside the Pizza Box is one of my favorite recipe books on the market. It’s cheap and it’s filled with very simple recipes that anyone can good. On top of that, they are creative, cheap to make and very delicious! From munchies to pasta and rice, you name it, this book has it with over 160 pages filled with simple recipes designed only for college students.
The Starving Students’ Cookbook is packed filled of cheap, nutritious and easy recipes. These recipes include one-pot meals that only leave you with one pot to wash, dozen of meals that can be cooked under 15 minutes and let’s not forget meat-free dishes that will leave you craving room for more after you’re all done. This is a great bargained price book that has over 220 pages of recipes.
With over 300 recipes, this is by far the best rated book that I’ve found online. It has some of the best recipes and yet is filled with a ton of recipes that will allow you to cook something different each day for almost a year, you can’t beat that! This book comes equipped with microwavable meals, easy to pack treats, bagged lunches, vegetarian alternatives and so much more!
Sure, you can get a lot of recipes on the Internet but I’ve always found it so much handier to have a book laying around the kitchen so that I can reference and bookmark the recipes that I truly enjoy. Most of these books are under $20 and won’t break your budget. Just think of it this way in that you’ll be able to save money while cooking your meals at home rather than going out.
