3 easy recipes for college students
Tristan Rathbun, Staff Writer • March 29, 2022

Do you have a pot, a stove, a knife and a cutting board? That’s all you need! Here are three simple recipes that I often turn to when I’m hungry, busy and don’t want to do too many dishes. It should be noted that the spice suggestions are low to accommodate milder tastes, but feel free to increase the measurements as needed.
