In my college dorm room, we weren’t allowed to have any cooking devices except a microwave and I was getting pretty tired of Ramen. I thought I was pretty clever by bending/breaking the rules and using a rice cooker to cook real meals. But then I found out that lots of other people have already been there and done that. Here are some low maintenance, efficient methods of cooking tons of dishes in a rice cooker, microwave, George Foreman grill, crock pot or hot plate. Tons of recipes too. Why, thank you, Life Hacker!
