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 :)

It will soon be time to venture out on your first ever food shop by yourself without someone to hold your hand during the process. It won’t be long until your parents’ food parcel will have run out and it will be time to make that trip to the supermarket.
The Christmas Student Special
Christmas – it’s the most wonderful time of the year. It also means the end of a long, tiring but exciting term (especially for you fresher’s) at University. So seeing as most of us won’t be spending much of Christmas with our new found friends at Uni, why not make a day of it before everyone heads for the old homestead...
Festival food and drink
With so many festivals going on over the next few months, as summer really starts (hopefully the weather will keep improving!) I’m sure at least a few of you will be heading to one or two. Instead of a usual checklist advising you on what clothes and toiletries to take etc., I thought a food […]
