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 :)
