If you’re sick of the caf every day like the rest of us, take matters into your own hands right from your dorm. Some of these easy recipes need a kitchen, others just a microwave — and maybe some dorm room improvising. Just try not to set off the fire alarm (again).

 

Microwave Nutella Cake in a mug

It’s chocolate, it’s cake and it takes two minutes in the microwave. This is the essence of college life.

 

Needs a kitchen? No

Time: 5-10 minutes

 

Directions:

  1. Stir all ingredients into a large microwave-safe mug until batter is smooth.
  2. Microwave on high for 1½ – 2½ minutes, until cake has risen in the mug and set in the center.

Mushroom Chicken

This is a simple dish I like to throw together in the middle of the night when I don’t feel like doing anything special. I like to use flavored rice, but any kind works. The best part: it leaves leftovers for cram night.

Needs a kitchen? Yes

Time: 20 minutes

 

Directions:

  1. Boil rice in water with salt. Set aside.
  2. Combine cream of mushroom soup and broth. Set aside.
  3. Apply nonstick spray to skillet or pan, sauté chicken on one side at medium heat for 4 minutes.
  4. Flip chicken, add soup/broth mix to pan. Simmer for 5 – 7 minutes or until chicken is thoroughly cooked. Soup/broth mix should be reduced to a sauce.
  5. Serve chicken and mushroom sauce over rice.

Omelet in a mug

If you’re sick of having cereal every morning and have dishes piling up in that small sink, this microwave omelet is for you!

 

Needs a kitchen? No

Time: 15 minutes

 

Directions:

  1. Spray microwave-safe mug with nonstick spray. Combine all ingredients in mug.
  2. Microwave on high for 1 minute, stir. Return to microwave for 1 – 1½ minutes until eggs are completely set.

Microwave Broccoli and Cheese

 

This is the struggle casserole. All you need is a microwave and an electric kettle.

 

Needs a kitchen? No

Time: 20 minutes

 

Directions:

  1. If you don’t have a kitchen, boil broccoli for 2-6 minutes in an electric kettle. If you do have a kitchen, just use a stove.
  2. Drain broccoli and place in a microwave-safe casserole dish. Add melted butter, salt, pepper, and cheese over broccoli.
  3. Microwave on high for 1 minute or until cheese is melted.

Mediterranean-Creole Chicken

This one takes some simple preparation beforehand, but bakes in just half an hour once it’s ready. Do some homework in the meantime. No, seriously.

 

Needs a kitchen? Yes

Time: 10 minutes prep, 1 hour marinate, 30 minutes bake

 

Directions:

  1. Sprinkle chicken breasts with seasoning.
  2. Mix salad dressing, garlic, oregano, and lemon juice in a large plastic bag.
  3. Marinate chicken in bag in refrigerator for 1 hour.
  4. Place chicken on a tinfoil-covered baking pan and bake for 20-30 minutes.
