Welcome to another post on my lovely little blog! Today's post is on a subject that I am very passionate about. Food. This quote is literally my life motto, "You can't buy happiness, but you can buy ice cream and that's basically the same thing." Okay, I am not actually a huge fan of ice cream, I feel that if you are going to eat that much sugar, you should eat something with actual substance, like a brownie or slice of cake. Wow, I am rambling. Let me try and get to my point! Haha! Food is a very important part of all of our lives, and that doesn't change just because you are now in college. The things that change are probably the fact that you now must feed yourself, and that you are considerably more poor. These are all fun aspects of college life. Am I right?
So, in order to help you (and myself, honestly) I have scoured Pinterest (my one true love) for all the best recipes and food ideas for college students. Also, if you want to see my entire collection of food and eating related topics, check out my Food Pinterest Board here. Let me know if you try any of these, and what you think! I have divided up the recipes and resources into several different categories, for easier enjoyment. Without further rambling: here is The Ultimate College Girl's Guide to Food!

On the rare occasion when I actually cook in college, one pot meals are usually my go-to. You basically just throw all the ingredients in a pot, let it simmer, and then enjoy! This make for easy clean-up and requires very little effort. Here are some yummy one pot meal ideas:
