Thanksgiving is on the horizon and for some college students we don’t get the luxury of going home and eating our parent’s home cooked meals. But, it’s going to be A okay because some genius came up with the idea of Friendsgiving.

Friendsgiving, the time to eat your heart out with your friends and celebrate the fall season. And when you get invited to a Friendsgiving, you don’t want to be that one friend who doesn’t bring anything… But then again what exactly do you bring to a Friendsgiving? Do I bring a starch? Do I bring a vegetable dish? Do I bring ramen? The questions go on and on. So here are seven easy recipes you can bring to your Friendsgiving festivities that are tasty and so easy to make even a kid could do it.
