We were all set to do a round-up of snacks and quick meals for college students back on campus when we realized that we're a little out of touch with how students are living these days! So, college folks, what's your kitchen situation?Back in the day (and we'll keep quiet on how "back" we're talking, here!), we remember having a microwave, a toaster, and a stove top at our disposal in a kitchen nook down the hall. Oh, plus a fridge, though it was always a gamble whether any of your food would actually still be there the next time you checked.
We were constantly doing things like buying packages of spaghetti only to realize that we had no pan in which to cook it in. Or buying apples and peanut butter for a quick snack and then attempting to dissect the apple using only a plastic knife. It took us a little while to get our act together.
So let us help you get your act together! We'd like to post more dorm-friendly recipes and suggestions in the upcoming months, but we need to know:
What do you have to work with in your dorm or college apartment? If you're college days are behind you, what do you remember about cooking in the dorm?
