Food is adaptable.
It doesn’t matter if you have a well-stocked pantry or a sparse dorm-room cabinet that would make your mother cry. You don’t have to have rare ingredients on hand, and you don’t even need to have every single ingredient in a recipe to throw a meal together. What you need is confidence, a little bit of bravery, and the will to try. What’s the worst that can happen? Surely something delicious can come from whatever is tossed in there.
