The weather where I live is pretty unpredictable. One day it will be a gorgeous warm day, and the next it is freezing and rainy. And when the weather is cold, there is nothing better than a nice hot snack to warm your tummy right up. If you are looking for an easy, 5 minute meal for one, then look no further! Here is mac n cheese in a mug.

Ingredients:

  • ½ cup elbow noodles
  • ½ cup milk or water (milk if you want creamy noodles)
  • ½ cup finely shredded cheddar cheese

Add the milk/water and noodles to an oversized mug and place it on a large plate just in case you have spillage while it is in the microwave. Microwave the mug on the plate for 1 minute, then stir, and microwave another minute. Stir it again, then check your noodles. If they aren’t quite done, microwave them an additional 3o seconds. After the noodles are cooked, if you are using water, pour out the water that is left, and if you are using milk don’t pour it out. Add in the cheese and stir well. Now you are ready to dig in!

So, if you want some yummy comfort food but don’t want to make the whole box, make your own mug!

XOXO, Chels

I know there are going to be times when I want something to eat but I am in my dorm room and don’t want to walk all the way to the dining hall or don’t want to go out because I have way to much homework (..or laundry to do..). Lucky for us hungry college students stuck in our dorms, there are easy, (sort of) healthy meals we can make in our microwave with only a few ingredients. Stock these ingredients in your fridge so you are ready to go the next time you don’t want to venture out for food. Here are a few yummy recipes you can make in the comfort of your dorm.download

  1. Microwave mac ‘n cheese: Mac ‘n cheese is a staple “college student” food. I mean, who doesn’t love its cheesy goodness? Why buy a single serving cup of mac ‘n cheese that has lots of chemicals and artificial colors when you can easily make your own mug of it from home? Here is the scrumptiously easy recipe.
  2. Mug Cheesecake: Now, I know cheesecake doesn’t necessarily count as a meal, but in college anything goes! And who doesn’t love cheesecake? Here is a yummy recipe for cheesecake that you can make in a mug.
  3. Scrambled eggs: I am a big advocate of “breakfast for dinner” so I love scrambled eggs as a meal! Here is a recipe for just that. This recipe calls for mostly egg whites, but you can just go ahead and use the whole egg.
  4. Tortilla pizza: You can make your very own pizza in your dorm room. Introducing the pizza quesadilla! The recipe says for you to use a stove, but a microwave will also work just fine.

Happy munching!

Greek Yogurt Mac ‘N Cheese

Healthy mac ‘n cheese…could there be such a thing? Fortunately for all of my healthy yet mac ‘n cheese loving sistas out there IS such a thing! It is so creamy, so delicious, and so guilt free! Plus, it takes about 10 minutes to make. Health conscious comfort food? Um YES! Here is how to make it:

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups dry elbow or spiral pastagreek-yogurt-mac-n-cheese-11
  • 2 cups shredded cheese
  • 1/2 cup milk of choice, I prefer plain almond milk
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened Greek yogurt

In a small pot stir together the cheese, milk, and salt until it is all melted together. Stir in the yogurt and simmer until it is hot. Cook your pasta fully and then stir it into the pot with your cheese and yogurt mixture.

Okay so how easy was that? So easy a caveman could do it. 😉

XOXO, Chels
