I love cooking during the summer. I have a little more time to not only try new recipes, but there are tons of barbeques and pool parties to try the new recipes at.

1. Berry Swirl Frozen Yogurt Bark

As someone who eats peppermint bark from Thanksgiving to Valentines Day, this was really exciting to me. It's healthy, but still kicks my sweet tooth into place.

2. BLT Pasta Salad

I was a little suspicious of the barbeque and ranch mixture, but after tasting it, I don't regret it for a second. It goes so well with the bacon and tomato.

3. Snickers Caramel Apple Salad

The sweetness of Snickers meets their match with the tanginess of apples in this magnificent dessert. It is so quick to make, because you just chop the Snickers and apples and dump everything else into a bowl, then stir.

4. Mini Chicken Pot Pies

These pot pies are so easy they will make you look like a five-star chef while hosting a dinner party. They are also extremely cheap to make in a big batch then, you can freeze whatever you don't consume and reheat later.

5. 3 Minute Fudge

Fudge is one of the easiest desserts to make and it's great to make when it gets really hot outside because there is no baking or using the stove to it, just microwaving to melt the chocolate.

6. Copycat Wendy's Chili

This chili is so good for those late summer bonfires or to eat while curled up in the air conditioning,

7. Cookies and Cream Brownies

These are so yummy! My brother's girlfriend loves this dessert. I have made them for her a couple times. They have crushed Oreos in them and the extra step takes a minute if you don't want Oreo crumbs all over your kitchen, but it's so worth it in the end.

8. Easy Ranch Burgers

The diner in my hometown makes the best ranch burger. It wasn't until I went to school that I realized that not all burger joints have them, but this recipe is the closest I've ever tasted to Hennings' ranch burger after you add coleslaw on top.

9. Lasagna Roll Ups

It's like lasagna but without having to go to the trouble of the cutting through all the layers of the noodles. Then you have to deal with your cousin ending up with have your noodle pieces and you have all her cheese…it's just a mess. This way you only have to deal with scooping and everyone getting ever servings.

10. Veggie Pizza with Crescent Rolls

Because this pizza does not involve any baking besides the eight minutes it takes to cook the crescent rolls. The cool cream cheese, ranch, and sour cream "sauce" just tastes refreshing and compliments the vegetables wonderfully and is great for hundred-degree days.

These recipes are good whether you are doing your first grown-up dinner party or taking a dish to the church potluck. I hope you have fun making a few of these and everyone else has fun being your guinea pigs!

After starting college and living on my own for a few years, I have had to learn how to cook. I've always had a knack for cooking, it just took living on my own to be obsessed with it. Since I'm going to school, I don't have a bunch of money to blow on nightly dinners. I have compiled a list of recipes that I absolutely love, that are cheap and have gotten me through school.

1. Buffalo ranch chicken pasta

This is my favorite recipe out of all of them. I stumbled upon this recipe a few years ago while surfing through Facebook. I make this recipe once every few weeks and it is my go-to for homemade recipes. There aren't even that many ingredients either.

2. Sausage and cream cheese dip

This is a staple in my house. Grab a bag of chips and some sausage and cream cheese dip and you're set. It's creamy and delicious, and with the spicy sausage, adds a tremendous flavor. There are literally only three ingredients, so go pick them up now for this amazing recipe.

3. Turkey burgers

I love myself a good burger, but there is something about turkey that enhances a burger's flavor. It's very lean and is a better alternative to ground beef. Season the turkey with whatever you like, and toss it on the grill/stove. This meal is super cheap and simple, all you really need is turkey and buns! Trust me, make these turkey burgers with some mashed potatoes, you won't regret it

4. Buffalo chicken dip

Buffalo chicken dip is a nationwide favorite. It's flavorful and spicy, and is perfect for all occasions. Again, very few ingredients, so this recipe doesn't break the bank.

5. Pasta carbonara

This recipe is super simple, and extra delicious. Bacon mixed with eggs in pasta is a combination that I never would have thought of, but I'm glad I found. It's filling and cheap so stock up!

6. Baked lemon chicken

This recipe is basically lemon and chicken. Its soft and juicy and goes great with oven roasted potatoes. I promise you, you won't regret making this meal. It's a very reliable meal

7. Chicken parmesan 

Chicken parmesan is amazing! It gives you a true Italian feel, and goes great with pasta. This recipe is filling and tasty so make sure to cook this ASAP.

8. Homemade pizza

Head to your local grocery store and pick up pre-made pizza dough, sauce, and whatever toppings you like! It's cheaper than buying a pizza and is really fun to make with your loved one.

9. Baked potato casserole

This recipe is so amazing. It's cheap to make and great to taste! It's all you could ever dream for as a college student, and it might be your next favorite meal

10.  Crockpot mac n cheese

Every young person loves mac n cheese. Kraft is great and all, but it's better to make it yourself. This gooey, delicious recipe will surely have you feeling great during and after.

This budget-friendly list will be a lifesaver for people first living on their own at school. They are easy to make and really cheap. I use these recipes all the time, and so should you.
