Dining Hall Hacks
My son lives on campus in a dorm and has a meal ticket. He actually enjoy’s the food at the cafeteria but he’s a growing boy and always hungry. Here’s some great cookbooks I came across :

The College Man’s Cookbook:
The College Man’s Cookbook has 100 easy recipes for College Men to prepare on a budget, in tiny kitchens with dull knives and microwaves, and distractions while earning a degree! Eating, not necessarily eating well, is such an integral part of college life but depending on fast food and buying processed food have become a bad habit. The College Man’s Cookbook provides recipes for every meal, plus midnight snacks and what to make for the parents when they come for a visit – see the chapter called “Impress The ‘Rents”. Author George Hirsch, Jr. endured claustrophobic kitchens, temperamental ovens, rusty stovetop coils, and decrepit refrigerators during his college days and realized College Men could use some help in the kitchen so he wrote dozens of tips and gives advice from “Shopping Lists for the Pantry, Fridge & Freezer”, “Find Your Inner Iron Chef”, “Sharing the Fridge”, “Storing Leftovers”, “Make Food Your Business” and “Cooking is The New Golf”. The cookbook will transform College Men into culinary ROCK STARS – there’s nothing more fun (and cheap) than cooking to bring roommates and friends together for a little Fried Eggs & Chorizo Rice, Brutal Bruschetta, Ramen Noodle Renaissance, Bad-Ass Godfather Italian Sub, Greek Life Pasta Salad, Noodles with Peanut Sauce, Killer Meatballs in Killer Sauce, Grilled PB & J, Coconut Garlic Green Beans, Banana Splitsville (a great dessert after a breakup), and 90 other easy recipes. And since graduation is what college is all about, there is even a Diploma to post on the fridge once the recipes have been completed! Mastering the basics of cooking and baking will help the College Man survive AFTER graduation when he has to go out into the REAL world, where he will find that knowing how to maneuver his way around the kitchen is a HUGE social skill and fun, too!
