Let's be real. College food sucks. And I think if I have to eat one more thing out of the dorm cafeteria I might die.

This is where I usually say how I am being dramatic and kidding, but I am serious. Dorm food is the worst. 

These recipes are home cooked meals perfect for your little dorm room microwave. You're welcome. 🙂

Side note: Make sure you are using a microwavable mug/plate. Don't wont you setting off your whole buildings alarm system. #whoops

If you have random mac n' cheese cravings like me, then this is a must-have recipe. To top it all off, this is only four ingredients. Yes, you read that right, FOUR! And one of those four is water... so basically best thing ever!

Can someone please try this and let me know how it tastes 🙂 I am honestly curious if this would work or not!! It unfortunately doesn't have exact directions so you might have to experiment on your timing for this one. How fun would this be as a weekend tradition though!

If you are big into breakfast foods this would be a good one for you. Lets be honest, the eggs in the cafeteria are the worst and taste like rubber. For this one you can stay in your pajamas and not even leave your room. Win-win.

Here's the perfect day for you: Go apple picking with friends, make this with those apples, and turn on a movie. How fun would that be?! Such a good activity and this isn't that bad for you. (anything that has granola on top of it is an instant in for me).

This recipe has you actually make your own dough which is pretty impressive (and exciting) but I wonder how this would taste with a biscuit as the dough... thoughts? I think that would be really good.

I think I may have saved the best for last! This recipe calls for an oven broil at the end but I would just say skip it and eat the melted cheese from the microwave.
