Simple inexpensive 1st apartment (college) recipes sought

Diane in Bexley | May 17, 2010 06:38 AM

DD2 will be getting her 1st apartment with a roommate in the fall. Looking to make a printed notebook for her with simple, inexpensive recipes that she and her roommate can make to encourage them to cook and avoid the typical Kraft dinner, ramen noodle route. These are college kids with not sophisticated palates, no exotic fruits or vegetables. They will have a full kitchen with a small m/w, apartment size fridge and stove/oven (no dishwasher) and buying their own cooking utensils, albeit as inexpensively as possible. Also, DD2 does not eat pork(lamb, chicken, beef, fish/seafood OK). She is very much a beginner cook, so a few ingredients and simple cooking techniques are desired. They will have access to IKEA, Target, Costco and Kroger, but a very limited budget. She will be trying to eat as many meals as possible from her apartment, to save on cost. Ideas, hounds? Thanks!
