Now, out of college, I find myself often craving these nostalgic foods that I used to indulge in.

1. Mac and cheese: Call me a sucker for the blue box, but there is only one other meal (see below) I would rather indulge in than a big bowl of cheesy good stuff. Whether it was Easy Mac or the little cartoon shapes, my friends and I could hardly ever resist our childhood favorite.
