A college student needs to eat, but you’re going to find that there’s no time for cooking. Unlike when you were a child, you’re not going to have that extra two hours to prepare a meal, and cook what you like. The college life is different, and you’re going to find that 15 – 30 minutes is all you have to cook a quick, yet healthy meal.
The thing about college, and cooking is that you’re not going to have all the appliances that you need. For example, a dorm room is generally going to have a community kitchen, or cafe, but a lot of the times, you can’t count on getting that stove, or oven. Instead, you’ll be stuck with a microwave. Even if you are, let me give you some great recipe ideas for your dorm.
