Plain and simple, I’m a huge foodie. I love trying new food, I love hearing about new food, I love watching people make food, and I love cooking. This year, I’m living in an apartment off campus, and I have a kitchen  I share with my roommates – a definite upgrade from dining halls! An incredibly high number of improv recipe disasters and masterpieces have been created in this kitchen. As a student, though, it’s really hard to find the time to cook – it’s always a treat to be able to spend more than half an hour in the kitchen, but a lot of the time, I don’t have the time to spend more than 20 minutes in the kitchen, and I’m too hungry to wait for food to be delivered. In times like that, I look for a quick recipe from one of two sources.


Pinterest has a lot of super simple, apartment and college -friendly recipes. There are super healthy and really creative options to choose from. Pretty much every spectrum of recipe on that site, and It’s come in very handy to me from time to time. The best recipes I’ve tried are slow cooker recipes; it takes maybe 10 minutes to prep everything and turn on the cooker. By the time you’re ready to eat, all you really have to do is plate the food.

If you’re anything like me, you’ve probably spent a solid half hour watching Tasty videos. Tasty has some great recipes that are exactly what you want in a time crunch. Plus, they’ve got plenty of meal prep recipes so that if you have some extra time on the weekend, you can prep your food in advance and just heat things up as you go through the week.
If all else fails, it’s amazing what you can come up with if you pretend you’re on Chopped and give yourself 15 minutes to come up with an entree!
