Microwavable meals


We all love good food with a homey taste, but how many college students actually have the time, energy, money and appliances for a sophisticated, homemade meal?

Any stressed and destitute college student can throw together this quick, easy, cheap and savvy feast. It involves two mugs, a small mixing bowl and spoon and, of course, the microwave oven.

Meals in a mug

  1. Mug pizza:

Preparation and cleaning time: 10 minutes

Monetary cost: $3


2 Pillsbury dough biscuits

1 tbsp tomato sauce

3 tbsp Italian 5 cheese blend

1 tbsp black olives

4 pieces of pepperoni


Press 2 uncooked biscuits together with your palms and then press them into the bottom of a wide-rimmed soup mug. Cook for one minute with the microwave on the potato setting. The biscuits will rise and have bubbles — but don’t be alarmed. Press them down again into a crust. Add sauce, cheese, olives and pepperoni. Cook on regular microwave temperature for another minute. Enjoy.

  1.  Extra decadent mug brownie:

This rich, deluxe chocolate brownie is a treat of the highest caliber — nothing like those counterfeits in the Caf.


1 pouch Duncan Hines Microwave Decadent Brownie Mix

2 tbsp water

1 tbsp semi-sweet chocolate chunks

1 tbsp chopped walnuts

Stir brownie mix and water in small mixing bowl. Add walnuts and chocolate chunks. Microwave on regular setting for a minute. Bon appetit.
