3 Best Cookbooks for College Students

Leaving home for college can be stressful for both the students and the parents. There are so many things you have to pack and do just to be ready. One of the most overlooked is thinking about what cooking skills the students have. A lot of college students now have kitchens and are not reliant on the meal plans for their daily meals. 

My love of cookbooks began while I was in college, even though I had a lot of baking experience I had very little cooking experience before college. I remember using cookbooks to help me figure out what to make and how to make the dishes.

Wonder what are the best cookbooks for college students? Check out my list below. They would have been a huge help to expanding my culinary knowledge.
