Creative college cooking - Advice needed

cayjohan | Oct 31, 2006 12:14 AM

The facts: My eldest is a college freshman. Has access to a shared kitchen but prefers to cook with: microwave, toaster oven and rice steamer. Has been asking me what he can make. Since I risk losing my Good-cook-Mom badge by admitting that I can screw up most convenience-appliance cookery, I'd like to appeal to anyone with suggestions for actual "cooking" (i.e., not just heating up cold pizza!) in these common collage appliances. My son is especially interested in what you can do with a rice steamer other than the obvious. Any suggestions? I'd like the boy to keep eating well and I'm running out of Gladware freezer containers to take to him! Thanks!
