college food: microwaves are amazing...

I didn't really intend to have a microwave in college. Fridge, yes, microwave, no.

And then my roommate got one and there's no going back.

This is my in-room kitchen. It's gotten even bigger since this picture.
The sheer volume of things you can make in the microwave is impressive. There's the easy things, like microwaveable mac n' cheese that was intended to be made in the microwave. And then there's tons of other foods that can easily be made in the microwave. Sure, there's a definite trade-off in taste. But when it gets to the point where you never have to leave your dorm room where you can resist the unhealthy temptations in the cafeteria using your microwave food, you start accepting the idea of microzapped pasta and eggs and everything.

Obviously microwaves can be used to make yummy brownies. But you can also use it to make eggs. Or pasta. Or baked apples. Or a multitude of other things (including Potatoes Lyonnaise and fudge apparently).

So I'm planning to try out a wide variety of somewhat classy microwave recipes and report back here on my blog. Like traveling the world in an RV but only eating at fast food joints?

With trusty, never-fail Pinterest as my guide, there's no way this could possibly go wrong. Until something explodes in the microwave and I have to clean it up.
