Fresh Steamed Veggies!!

One more post for today, make up for missing a few months.  I love steamed vegetables. Just LOVE them, but I find that my cafeteria's veggies aren't all that tasty.  They're not steamed their boiled which leads to loss of flavor and nutrients. Instead when I want some nice fresh steamed veggies I take two salad bowls (our salad bowls have just a little lip that's flat so when they're put together with one upside-down they make a nice dome and actually seal themselves with steam.  I'm not going to go into ingredients for all of this because it's so simple and customizable but here goes!

Take 2 salad bowls and put your choice of fresh veggies from the salad bar into once bowl along with about 1/4 cup of water. (I usually use carrots, broccoli and cauliflower as well as some onions for flavor.) Put the other bowl on top of the one with veggies in i and put it into the microwave for 1:30 minutes, stir, them put back in for another minute. Drain water into an extra cup or into empty bowl, add butter and salt if desired (I find the butter is unnecessary) and ENJOY!!

Apple Crisp in a Cup!

So I REALLY fail at this, It's been a few months since I've posted and I wasn't that good to begin with either.  I found this recipe when I was in the process of experimenting with apple sauce recipes and was really craving apples in all shapes and forms.  This is perfect for college students because it uses ingredients that are readily available in most cafeterias so here ya go!


  • 1 Apple
  • 1 pack plain or maple instant oatmeal
  • Cinnamon
  • 4 Sugar Packets
  • Brown Sugar if available
  • 1-2 packs of butter


  1. Cut apple into bite sized chunks and put into bowl
  2. Toss apple with sugar packets and some cinnamon and pour into mug
  3. Mix oatmeal, brown sugar, and butter and pour over apple chunks.
  4. Microwave for 1-1:30 minutes
  5. Let sit for 1-2 minutes
  6. ENJOY!
