A scratched DVD that skips can easily ruin your evening. Luckily there's a quick fix. Austin Pohlen, Boston University student and CHOW.com intern, shows how a little peanut butter can get you out of a sticky situation. This special College Edition CHOW tip is part of a series aimed at helping students on a budget with food and entertaining while living away from home.
Easy Dessert Tart Crust
This easy dessert tart crust is buttery, lightly sweetened, and delicately crispy -- the perfect foolproof base for any sweet filling you can devise.
Cornbread is a Southern staple, and a must with chili. This version is moist all the way through, with a lightly crisped top and a touch of sweetness. Mix in cheese or jalapeños for extra flavor, and feel free to bake as muffins if you prefer.
Spicy Slow Cooker Pulled Pork
Spicy pulled pork makes for great sandwiches, tacos, burritos, or rice bowls, and since all the ingredients go in the slow cooker at once, it's foolproof and easy as can be.
Easy Philly Cheesesteaks
Philly cheesesteaks are delicious but divisive. This easy version has thin-sliced rib eye, sautéed peppers, onions, and optional mushrooms, and Provolone (sorry, Whiz fans).
Red Velvet Cake
Red velvet cake is festive, fine-crumbed, moist, and delicious with cream cheese frosting.
