While cookie decorating is the first thing on my to-do list when I go home for winter break, it’s never too early to kickstart the holiday spirit.
It’s not Thanksgiving, or even Friendsgiving for that matter, without a turkey as the centerpiece of your table. And if you need evidence to convince you that roasting a turkey in your college kitchen is possible, then I am here to be your living proof.
Taco Tuesday is arguably the best day of the week, and living with my best friends has only strengthened my case. There is no other way I’d rather spend my Tuesday nights than in my dorm kitchen making a taco bar to accompany a nightly debrief.
It’s only been a week since I’ve returned to campus, and I’ve already spent most of that time experimenting in my apartment’s kitchen. I have committed myself to the trial and error of testing new dorm recipes I can quickly make during busy weeknights.
This flavorful salad is made up of ingredients that hold up well in the fridge, so you can make a large batch to keep on hand and enjoy throughout the week. You can also make a small batch to enjoy on the spot, which I often do because of how simple and foolproof this dish truly is.
The dining hall has almost all the ingredients I would use to make mac and cheese at home, so I figured I would be ambitious and give this recipe a go. It ended up working so well that I have added this dish to my weekly dorm dinner rotation, and I’m eager to share it with you!
Avocado toast is a dish you can easily make in your dorm as it requires few steps and materials. The only tricky part is making a poached egg without a stovetop. I’m not one to compromise when it comes to avocado toast though, so I’ve mastered a microwave egg-poaching strategy.
With all of the recent weather changes, my roommates and I have constantly been under the weather. When we aren’t pointing fingers and blaming one another for bringing a cold into the dorm, we are laying in bed feeling lousy. Whenever I’m sick at college, I crave homemade soup because it always helps me power through my symptoms.
