College meals

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hey Guys and Gals,

I like this site and have spent some hours reading a lot of great things that have been written on here so I am finally signed up and wanted to post. I am a college student who loves hosting people over for some food. The one thing is that I am limited to space and equipement. I was wondering if anyone on here would mind helping an entertaining student come up with some other great ideas for recipes. Some of the things that I have in my little dorm kitchen are the good old trusty crockpot, slow cooker, assortment of pans, blender, microwave, small oven, waffle maker, toaster and  table top warmer (I think thats what they are called, I use it to melt cheese on top of bread).

So if you guys can lead me to any recipes that are mininal that would be great, or even suggest other equipement that is cheap to add to my growing kitchen.

Looking forward to seeing your guys posts and ideas.

hey Collegechef!

Welcome to Chef Talk first off, glad you're here.

You may want to utilize the search bar at the top the page.

For me, I use to have a single burner to make all types of goodies.

If you have pots and pans, crock pot, micro, small oven, waffle maker and a toaster, WOW!! you're set to make really anything.

I feel that way too...I am just trying to find more variety of things I can cook with them. I am trying to figure ways of simplfying some recipes to use for the dorm. I have learned how to make an omelette buy using water, a plastic bag and the microwave. I want to show my friends that space and equipement is not needed to cook a good meal. Plus I like challenging myself.

Cheers and thanks for welcoming me.

Why are college hot meals always so high in calories in the UK? They do not cater for diabetic staff or students either.
