Welcome to The Dorm Diet

Hi all!

I’m Julia Harrison, a second-year advertising student at the University of Florida. Cooking is one of my passions. My dad owned an Italian restaurant for about 10 years and taught me a lot of what I now know. This sparked my interest in cooking.

Coming into college, my mom refused to purchase an overpriced dining hall meal plan for cafeteria quality food. I thought it would be impossible to cook actual meals using a communal kitchen all the way down the hall from me. I thank her to this day for forcing me to get creative and learn how to cook in the space given to me (a shoebox dorm). I began to shop strategically and on a budget. The purpose of this blog is to serve as a guide to freshmen living in dorms. Having been in that position, I have perfected the art of communal kitchens, mini fridges and microwave meals. The struggle was real, and although it is over for me, it has just begun for you.

Stay tuned for recipes, kitchen tips and tricks, shopping lists and demonstrations in the future!
