Friday Recipe Round-up: Holiday Baking in Your Dorm!

Every week we’ll round up some of the best recipes, food writing, cooking tips and drinking tricks that every college student should know about. Here’s what’s cooking in virtual kitchens, around the web, this week.

It’s already Passover, and Easter is just a few days away, so we decided to put together some holiday-inspired recipes (and a few other things) to cook up if you are missing your family’s celebration back home, or want to impress your fam with some college cooked contributions!
