What's on the Menu...College Cooking Crash Course

Well, the past few weeks certainly have been busy in the Frugal Household. As you may have guessed from our last post, our latest project is going to be an ebook made for those of Limited Cooking Capacity--be it for reasons of time, money, skill, equipment, whatever--and particularly those in the most pitiable position (at least from a cooking standpoint) of all: dorm dwellers. This project is more than a collection of recipes: it is the foundation for a framework, a system, of cooking that will make cooking in even the most limited situations cheap, tasty, and pleasurable, or at the very least painless. Stay tuned for a few little crumbs of what is to come!

Meanwhile, tell us what are your college cooking qualms, conundrums, concerns, and needs, or even a funny story! Remember, college cooking need not apply to only those (fortunate enough) to still be in college; the method we'll outline in the coming days applies to ANYONE who has limited time, skill, or desire when it comes to cooking. Let the adventure begin!


  1. Have you heard of the book "Help! My Apartment Has A Kitchen" by Kevin Mills and Nancy Mills? It seems to be very similar to what you're after and is full of terrific recipes. I like it (and no, I'm not the author). Hope that helps!

  2. @nicole and maggie--Thanks for the tip! I'm going to try to get this one from the library.
