    As I'm a Home Economics major, for Christmas I'm planning on making small recipe booklets for all my college aged friends with a few basic recipes that they might not know how to make on their own. Any favorite meals, desserts, or breads that you wish you knew how to make? Any favorite recipes that you'd like to share?

    Popcorn

    1.Place in microwave with this side down.
    2.Set microwave for 2 to 5 minutes depending on microwave wattage.
    3.Listen carefully. Stop microwave when popping slows to 1 to 3 seconds between pops. Do not leave microwave unattended while popping popcorn.
    4.Caution bag will be hot. Open bag away from face to avoid contact with hot steam. Hold one tab with hand and use other hand to pull tab on opposite corner.
    5.Serve and enjoy.

    Sorry, have a ton but they're all from other cookbooks. I teach friends how to cook simply meals since they have no idea how to cook but I don't create my own recipes, I just embellish others already done.

    Here's the bare minimum any college student should know how to make:
    Grilled cheese sandwich made with the iron
    Top Ramen
    Hamburgers for tailgate parties
    Coffee
