Cooking on Campus

A hands on culinary crash course for college students!


  •             The school year is almost over and what better way to celebrate than with a fiesta? Mexican Street Corn, Pineapple Guacamole, and a One Skillet Paella will make you feel like you are already on summer vacation!

  • This past Tuesday, our students learned how to prepare healthier versions of some of their favorite fast food treats! On the menu this week was savory Quinoa & Garbanzo Bean Veggie Burgers, Baked Sweet Potato Fries, and Skinny Cookies N Cream Milkshake.

  • Sometimes we reach a point where things get busy and we feel as if the only option is to go through the drive thru and grab the quickest and easiest thing on the menu. But have no fear! Our upcoming class, Fixing Fast Food, is all about beating those cravings with recipes that will not leave you feeling guilty!

  • Our mystery class is a favorite every semester and our latest one did not disappoint! Chef Lawrence and Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN) Christine Carlson of the University of Arizona Student Union led our Cooking on Campus class and shared some of their tricks of the trade with us.

  • After our last class, our students are ready to prepare the perfect brunch menu!

                Our class started off with Avocado Egg Boats. These are the perfect addition to any breakfast because they are filling and healthy! Avocados provide heart-healthy monounsaturated fats while the egg has protein, which will keep you full and satisfied. We garnished our egg boats with chives and parsley, but you can top yours with anything to give it the flavors you like!

  •             As we reach the halfway point in the semester, it is time to take some time to relax, and what better way to do that than with brunch! This week our students will be making a few essentials for everyone’s favorite meal.

  •       In celebration of awards show season, we have prepared healthy and delicious snacks that will make you the winner of the night after making these treats for your friends and family!

  • With the Oscars this week, it is only fitting to have a class featuring delicious movie night munchies! We are making simple and scrumptious snacks that are sure to be the big winners of the night.

  • Last week, our students left our class with three perfect recipes to make for whoever they are spending Valentine’s Day with! We made a healthy pizza, a fresh salad and finished everything off with a strawberry cheesecake treat that will surely become your new favorite dessert.
