As a college student, when you move off campus one of the most challenging new responsibilities is learning how to cook. Without meal plans, it takes a lot of effort to prepare meals and continue to have a balanced diet.
If you are like me, you had little to no experience cooking going into college. Thankfully, I found multiple food bloggers who have quick, easy and healthy recipes that a first time cook would have no problem following. Now, I use some of these recipes at least three times a week, and I can confidentially say I am a pretty good cook!
