The 12 Days of Cookbooks: The Starving Students’ Cookbook

Day 3…

What college kid couldn’t use a good meal? Most college students find out that once you’ve cut the cord from the university meal plan things get a little more interesting (and complicated).

Sure, you can grab fantastic cheap eats on every college campus in America. But, what about when the craving a good home cooked meal hits and your home is 1,500 miles away? That’s the problem that the Starving Students’ Cookbook has been helping clueless college kids and newly minted graduates to solve since 1983.

Revised in 2002 this cookbook contains easy to make dishes that will make even the most novice student cook look like, well.. OK, not Eric Ripert, but, maybe at least Howard Johnson. That’s a start, right?

Highlights from the book include, one pot meals, meals in fifteen minutes and even a pretty good selection of vegetarian dishes. Let’s face it, if you’ve never really cooked before you have to start somewhere and this is a pretty good place.

The Starving Students’ Cookbook would be a great beginning to your college students or new grads cookbook collection. You never know,  if you play your cards right, you may be rewarded with a big heaping plate of Tequila-Soaked Fish or Hungry Dave’s Beef & Beans during winter break.
