Before I went to college, I didn't even know how to fry an egg. And now, here I am, creating recipes for my own blog, and for several other renowned food websites. So what changed? The big shift came when I discovered that student food was nothing like the food I was used to eating at home. After a few months of toasts with cream cheese, canned baked beans, and cup of noodles, I had had enough. I needed to eat homemade food again!
When I was asked to create food for college students, I could immediately relate. I would've killed for some wholesome food made with love those first few months away in college. In Latin America we don't really go "away" to college. Most people study in their hometown, and live at home throughout the process. For this reason, the idea of a "care package" to send your kid away to college with doesn't exist. I wish it did, though. I would have been very happy with some homemade breads like this one, or any other comfort foods while I got used to the new environment and learned to cook for myself!
