the 30 & over project: college prep (for parents) – cooking on campus

College CookingThose of you in the 30 & Over crowd may have students leaving for college soon, either as a freshmen or as a returning upperclassmen.  I recently overheard the interns in my office talking about how hard it is to learn to cook in college.  For those who live on campus, I guess this probably isn’t an issue for many reasons: 1) most college students are on the university food plan and 2) you usually can’t have appliances in your dorm room.  But, for those students who either live off campus all year round or just for the summer, an alternative to eating pizza or ramen noodles would probably come in handy right!  So, here is a quick list of cookbooks I found on Amazon.com for college students. Please share them with any college student you know!
