Last night here in the dorm my Residence Life staff hosted a little competition and demonstration called the "Microwave Showdown". It was our little version of the Food Network. We had two teams compete like "Iron Chef" using basics you might find in a dorm room or college cafeteria. It was great! After that my RAs demonstrated 9 different recipes. Some of them really hammed it up. We might even have the next Food Network Star in our midst!

One of my new favorite quick dessert recipes is...


12 oz. bag of semi-sweet chocolate chips
14 oz. can sweetened condensed milk

Combine ingredients in a microwave safe bowl.
Microwave on medium for 2 to 3 minutes
(stirring at 1 minute intervals)
until chips are melted and mixture is smooth and thick.
Pour into greased 8" sqaure dish and cool.

We also made...
Late-Night Asian Noodles
Mexican Chicken
Pizza Mac n Cheese
Microwave Veggies in Parmesan Sauce
Cheesy Mexi Rice Casserole
Cake in Coffee Cup (Delish!)
and Scrambled Eggs

(For those of you counting...the 9th was a cobbler but it didn't turn out well. Succesful on 8 out of 9, not too bad!)

Let me know if you guys want me to post any of the other recipes.

  1. I enjoyed reading your recipes. I tried the chicken enchilladas last night and the banana french toast this morning. Both were delicious. Thanks for sharing!
