Q: I'm a college student about to head into two weeks of finals, so I'm looking for some quick recipes. My roommates and I are pretty good cooks, so they don't have to be typical microwave-centric college-y recipes. We'd love them to be healthy (brain food!), filling, easily doubled, and tasty when reheated, so we can just make a vat of something and heat it up whenever. None of us have any dietary restrictions.
Thanks so much for helping a few starving-ish college students forge through exams!

Editor: Elise, I have two words for you: Oatmeal and soup. You want to start your days off strong with a good breakfast, so have a pot of this in the fridge for quick reheating:
And then make a couple pots of soup that can feed you over the course of a few days:
Make sure you have some fresh greens in the fridge (winter spinach, arugula) for super quick salads and you're set to go.
Readers, what else would you suggest?
