Dorm Room Cooking Ada OK

Obviously, space prevents gourmet cooking, but you don’t need to go that far to get by. All you need is a small microwave and a mini-refrigerator. At most schools, these are the only appliances allowed in the dorms. If you can’t afford them, check with your college's office of student life and see if they’re available for rent.

9 Things You Can Cook in Your Dorm Room

9 Things You Can Cook in Your Dorm Room

As if it isn’t bad enough that the cafeteria is serving something not quite recognizable, they don’t even have the decency to serve it 24/7! Add the fact that the local fast food places close at 1 a.m. and you have a real problem when you’re studying at 2 a.m. and you’re starving. All's not lost, though — not if you’ve got some essentials, a few spare minutes, and a little creativity.

Obviously, space prevents gourmet cooking, but you don’t need to go that far to get by. All you need is a small microwave and a mini-refrigerator. At most schools, these are the only appliances allowed in the dorms. If you can’t afford them, check with your college's office of student life and see if they’re available for rent.

Now back to the food!
Dorm cooking relies heavily on convenience foods, and there’s a lot of great stuff out there. Stock up and you'll be able to feast on the following delicious dorm-style meals: 

  • Soup
    Leave the homemade stuff to mom. In the dorms, it’s about simplicity. Opt for canned soup, which you can get in a zillion different flavors. Remove the lid with a handheld can opener, pour into a bowl, and nuke. Better yet, get the type that comes in a microwaveable container and you won’t have to worry about dishes. Nutri-tip: Choose brands with fewer than 400 mg of sodium per serving.
  • Burritos
    You'll find these in just about any place that calls itself a grocery store.
