College dorms are often studies in rambunctious hedonism, with a bit of all-nighter stress and crappy sweatshirts tossed in the mix. Dorm life also tends to include totally dismal eating habits — even when a dining hall meal plan is involved.
Fortunately, there are actual recipes (with directions and everything!) that you can make in the sparse confines of your dorm room or suite. All you need is a microwave and refrigerator, two things that are pretty de rigueur in most college dorms.
From breakfast scrambles, to microwave cheesecakes (YES THEY REALLY EXIST), these meals will not only keep you off of a microwave popcorn diet, they’ll also make your room the go-to place for hanging out (because who can stay away when there’s perfectly good cheesecake involved?).
