Recipes for starving college students?

mschow | Sep 13, 200711:27 AM     116

I am posting this for my nephew, who is in college in Boston; and appears to be wasting away. He's in a dorm with a kitchen shared by his 3 other roomies. They all (stupidly), elected not to take the food plan this year...somehow they also forgot none of them know anything about cooking. They are dying for some REALLY simple recipes. We're going out to get him a crockpot where he can dump everything in. So, if you have any really easy crockpot recipes, I surely would appreciate them. Also, anything really basic would be great. I mean, he doesn't even know how to make a chicken cutlet! What were these boys thinking! There is a Trader Joes near BC from what I understand, but they can't live off of TJ frozen meals forever. They are also dying for snacky food that is easy to prepare.
I'd appreciate any and all help!
Thanks!
