When I was in college, we used the good ol' hotpot. This is not the same as a hot plate. Great for soups and boiling the noodles for pasta and macaroni and cheese. We also used it to make scrambled eggs. We would use a second one to heat up the spagetti sauce.
We used to make grilled cheese sandwiches with the iron. Just make sure the iron you use is ONLY for cooking though! And clean it well after each use.
We also had a toaster in our room.
I also don't see why a crockpot couldn't be used. Very handy to throw everything in in the morning and have dinner ready when you get home. The internet has some great crockpot recipies.
And get the biggest dorm sized refridgerator you can find!
Trust me, hungry college kids become VERY creative when it comes to figuring out how to cook food!
Dx'd w/ Crohn's in 1979 at age 13. Bad flare 2008 but no health insurance so I dealt with it. Colonoscopy in July 2009 caused a perforated colon, emergency bowel resection. 2 fistula's, perianal and perivaginal.
Humira, probiotic, a multivitamin, Glucosamine, D3, calcium, potassium, magnesium, zinc, and fish oil. I also take Tramadol 50 mg and Klonopin (for anxiety) as needed.
Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance!
