Student Recipe iPhone App

This collection of 60 recipes has been put together especially for students. Most are economical, quick, easy to make and nutritious, however we've also included some "treats" for when you've done well with your budget and have a little extra to spend. To make it even easier, you can also choose the serving amount on many of the recipes - from cooking for 1 to feeding the house (8) - and the recipes are listed in clearly defined sections in order of preparation/cooking time.  You can even email your favourite recipes to friends directly from the app.

Most likely you will have a finite amount of money per month from which you will have to pay your rent and bills and perhaps pay for books and/or tuition fees and clothes as well as feeding yourself.

Take 30 minutes out to write down all your expenses so you can decide how much you're able to spend on food each week. Once you have the figure you should stick to it faithfully as you go through the month, otherwise you could end up eating baked beans on toast for seven days running …. every month.
