If you're anything like me, leaving the comfort of your parents kitchen, or reliability of your on-campus restaurant or cafeteria, and then being thrust full speed ahead into traditional kitchen living can be a little daunting.
Let's be honest, your busy schedule can make it hard to carve out time for cooking healthy and tasty meals. Even if you were raised in a family that cooked every meal!
