Life in a college dorm room or a tiny apartment can be complicated; especially when it comes to cooking. With little to no space for equipment, things can get cluttered quickly, and concocting a solid meal that hits all the food groups can seem impossible. But, never fear! We are determined to start you off for the new year and spring semester with tools and recipes to fuel your body the way it needs to be and deserves to be. 

  • Power/rice bowls

    • These are both easy and filling. All you need is a base (like rice), some veggies, cheese, and any other toppings you enjoy! The best part is, these usually don’t require any cooking.

  • Smoothies/smoothie bowls

    • If you are blessed with a blender, you have a number of options for meals at your disposal. Take your favorite fruits and veggies, milk or juice, and voila! You have a refreshing smoothie, perfect for an immunity boost any time of the year.

  • Sandwiches

    • You can really get creative with these. Whether you are a classic peanut butter and jelly fan or a turkey club fan, you can do pretty much anything with simple kitchen foods. You can even go as far as to eliminate bread completely out of the equation,  like these tomato clubs from Taste of Home.

    • If you are vegan or vegetarian and miss the taste of a hearty sandwich, search no further. Saleema’s vegan hoagies and wraps are nourishing and easy to make. Just bring veggies, your favorite condiments, oils, and seasonings, and get ready for Saleema’s positive energy.

  • Salads

    • A salad never lets you down . . . or maybe it has. But we believe in second chances, so try out one of the easiest foods to make one more time! You can include as little or as many ingredients as you want. All you really need is a fridge and a knife. 

    • Our very own Chef Annabel Cohen hosted a summer salad workshop. Try it out and perfect the recipe over the next few months!

  • Good old microwavable meals!

    • You can never go wrong with a microwave meal. From fried rice and chicken to mac and cheese, you have endless opportunities!

Now that you are equipped with some of the simplest recipes in this world, go forth and explore. We would love to see if you try out any of these. So, don’t forget to tag us in any posts or stories, for your tasty creations! Or, if you have any recipes you want to share, sign up to lead a workshop!
