Master the Art of Low-Effort Cooking

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!

  1. I am glad to see this! There have been a couple of times when we ran out of gas for our stove & oven, for a day or 2. I was definitely searching for creative rice cooker & crock pot recipes then! 🙂
