Gonna be cooking next year I imagine, living in Townhouse and all. Want to learn to cook for myself better to prepare for real world and such. Gonna list some meals that would be relatively easy to cook I suppose. Just thinking outloud. Comments/suggestions appreciated.
  • Spaghetti/various pastas
  • Chicken breasts - easy to cook but more expensive than just buying a chicken probably
  • Salad
  • Potatoes - cut up and put in stove over frying pan or something w/vegetables
  • Peanut butter sandwiches :D
  • Baked squash things
  • Stuffed peppers - I think these would be a lot of fun to make
  • Tacos too, maybe chicken tacos as they would be healthier?
Update: Someone commented with this link with some guidelines regarding cooking. There are a lot of great websites with college cooking tips, I should probably look at those.

Also somehow I forgot to include Rice on the list up there. Rice is so cheap and filling, so wondrous.



  2. taco and beer night, yes?

  3. Beer bread= 12 oz beer + 1/2 cup sugar + 3 cups self-rising flour; bake at 350 for 1 hr/until knife inserted comes out clean + crust is lightly browned (sometimes takes as little as 30 minutes, depends on oven).

  4. add tomato paste and basil to the beer bread...even better.

  5. you should check out the starving student's cookbook line, they even have a vegetarian version. Its pretty kick ass, if I may so so myself
