Heidi Diller and Patty Lombardo are the co-authors and recipe developers of Better than Dorm Food. They initially created this website as a resource for their college-aged children. However, they quickly found that their recipes are great for anyone with limited cooking skills or looking for budget-oriented recipes.
Heidi is a Registered Dietitian and currently works as a consultant in the retail food industry. Her work inspires consumers across the country to live a healthier lifestyle. Her two sons, Jeff and Ryan, currently attend universities in San Diego (SDSU) and Santa Cruz (UCSC), California. Heidi admits her sons are her biggest fans as well as toughest food critics. But they now pretty darn good cooks themselves by helping her in the kitchen as they grew up. Her goal is to encourage their friends and YOU prepare meals beyond Top Ramen® and find their own way in the kitchen.
Patty’s career has taken many turns over the years, from advertising to marketing to merchandising but what has remained constant is her love of good food, trying new recipes, and teaching others. Daughters Maria and Angela, attend college in Fullerton, California. While it would be ideal to cook side-by-side, it just isn’t possible with today’s hectic lifestyle. Her goal is to keep the recipes simple, inexpensive, interesting, and delicious while providing you, and her daughters, with the skills to be successful and comfortable in the kitchen.
