I’m Rachel! When my Online Journalism class required a blog, I knew this was my opportunity to finally dive into the kitchen and the cookbooks. Like most college students, I know how easy and tempting it is to drive by a fast food restaurant and order off of the dollar menu for a quick and easy meal. I want to show other college students that it is possible to cook delicious meals on a budget that will serve 2-4 people (and possibly have some leftovers for lunch the next day). I will explore old cookbooks, raid my mothers pantry, shop the grocery stores, and prepare meals each week that will hopefully rock my family’s taste buds and help other first time cookers work up the courage to do the same.
