Macaroni and cheese is undeniably a freshman staple. (Sorry to all the gluten–free freshmen out there. It's a cold, cold world without Wishbone macaroni in your life). But sometimes, you have to make due with the singular appliance available in your dorm room: the microwave. Here are two recipes that won’t require you to buy measuring equipment, search for an enormously complicated list of ingredients you’ll probably only use once, or do the dishes. And it tastes good too! Dorm hibernation at it’s finest.
