Hello, my name is Lauren, I am 21 and I am "The Starving Student".

Calling all Hungry Students...


The aim of this website is to share my simple student recipes to help those starting a more independent life. I hope to inspire students to cook from scratch, rather than relying on ready-meals.

Keeping an eye on my budget and preparing meals around work can be a struggle so I have created a website for all of us students. My meals are cheap, easy and most of all delicious!


I always try to make more sustainable decisions on a daily basis whilst cooking & shopping.

About me

Since I was very young, my dad taught me how to cook dishes from scratch using fresh ingredients, rather than buying pre-cooked meals. Being half Spanish, I love Mediterranean food as it is colourful, tasty & healthy, however there are so many other types of food that I have tried & put onto The Starving Student.

My brother, sister and I have always enjoyed cooking and baking together, despite the occasional argument about who got to crack the eggs and eat the leftover cake mixture!

I enjoy repeating recipes with different flavours, making treats for friends' birthdays and being able to use up the leftovers the next day (a free meal to you and me).
