Hi all you cooking-fans! I'm a student from Belgium, and during the week I'm staying on campus. I've got my room which is for study, sleeping, living, invite friends and stuff, and a kitchen which I share with 10 other girls in our corridor. So cooking isn't very easy for me, I've only got the very very basic stuff, 1 frying pan, 3 pots in different sizes, a sharp knife and that's about it. No balance, not even a mixer! But still, I love cooking, and I'd like to invite some friends, but I never know what to cook! As a student, I also can't afford expensive ingredients and stuff, but I'd like to make something more 'advanced' then spaghetti, or pancakes or just order pizza! Also, desserts are a big problem. I love to bake cakes at home, but without a mixer and a decent oven, that's impossible. I can't think of a nice dessert, so I usually have to buy some cookies somewhere when people come over, but I'd like to make something my self! So have you got any easy to make, cheap yet tasty recipes you can recommend to this poor student?

well I think one of the things that can almost grab anyone is to be able to cook good chips, or potatoes that look like baked potatoes, I think most people like potato..my mother used to make the best with onions.. she used to cut the potatoes into small portions like quarters and boil them until they were soft then fry them with the onions, they were delicious with just salt and tomato sauce....hmmmmm I miss those treats...
