So let's get this straight: you've got a bed, a microwave, and a refrigerator. And one of those is not at all useful in preparing food (except to maybe provide a little extra counter space?). How can you possibly cook for yourself in these conditions?

I'll tell you how! With some fresh ingredients, about 30 minutes of your time, and a little pinch of ingenuity!

Check out the three meals below, all of which you can make (for realsies!) in your college dorm room.

15 Minute Chicken Fajitas

These delicious chicken fajitas only take one dish and a microwave to make! With onions, peppers, and delicious spices, they're full of flavor. Just add tortillas (and maybe a Corona), and enjoy!

10-Minute Microwave Risotto

Pretty fancy for a dorm room, huh?! You've got your choice of butternut squash & sage, mushrooms & thyme, and bacon & kale.

One-Step Microwave Chili (Beef or Vegetarian!)

This recipe sounds simply delicious. Enjoy over microwave quinoa! And there's even instructions for a vegetarian variation.

...and Don't Forget a Side of Steamed Veggies!

It's not a complete meal without something green! Make a side of steamed veggies with these easy instructions.

So there you have it!
