There’s more to the college experience than fascinating lectures, frat parties and pricey textbooks. There’s all that ramen, for one thing. So this morning’s Times, Trib and Merc food sections featured a piece on dorm cooking – easy cooking ideas that are equally at home at the big U or in harried non-college households, too. An egg-laced, flavorful Greek lemon soup and a simple Greek salad can be whipped up in short order, and require nothing more than a rice cooker (for the soup) and a chopping board and knife (for the salad). Make fluffy, cheesy scrambled eggs in a mug, or whip up microwaveable biscuits. And there’s more, including an Asian-inspired pasta salad with shredded chicken and vegetables (pictured), microwaved sweet potatoes with brown sugar, and more. Check it out!
