About Student Recipes
StudentRecipes.Com was originally setup by me, James Bailey in 2004 as a first year student at the University of East Anglia in the UK. As a student with very few culinary skills it was often difficult finding recipes that were quick and easy to cook but more importantly cheap.
Since, StudentRecipes.com has grown with user generated recipes and editorial blog posts and now visited by over 350,000 unique users every month. Performing around a million page views.
I hope you find the blog posts and recipes useful. If you have any suggestions for improvements, please give me a shout :)

Either that or your parents point them out with slight concern…
Ready meals vs. Home cooked
Ready meals – very much the food baby of Western Civilisation. What’s more, us Brits are the worst in Europe for stocking up on them. £1.9bn was spent on ready meals in last year alone, double that of France and even triple that of Spain. More than 1/3 of adults in the UK admit to eating ready meals more than once a week – I wonder how many of those guilty are students...
The celebrities battle it out
Jamie Oliver – fierce food campaigner and all around stand up guy – has hit out at sporting role models David Beckham and Gary Lineker for promoting junk foods. You may have seen the likes of Beckham and Gary on your TV screens in ads for Pepsi and Walkers crisps – but the celebrity chef has joined health professionals and teachers who say the use of famous sports personalities in junk food advertising is sending the wrong message to youngsters…
