What Should I Put in a College Cooking Care Package?

(Image credit: Gregory Han)

Q: My cousin has just moved away from home to college for the first time and is having a bit of trouble with the grocery and cooking aspect of things. I am planning on sending him a care package of some recipes, easy and nutritious starter ingredients for a few meals, and maybe a couple kitchen gadgets.

What are some items I could put in a care package for him to help him out? Does anyone have any "I couldn't have fed myself in college without _______" thoughts?
