Here are a few recipes that will keep you and your wallet stuffed.

Nutella French Toast Rolls


  • 3-4 slices of buttermilk bread
  • 4 strawberries
  • Nutella
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 3 teaspoons granulated sugar
  • Optional: syrup or powdered sugar

First, cut the crusts off of each slice of bread. If you do not have a knife, just rip the crusts off gently using your hands.

On the shorter side of the bread, slather on some Nutella on a third of each bread slice.

Cut and place strawberries on top of the Nutella layer, then roll the bread up. Roll starting from the Nutella spread side and towards the other end.

In a separate bowl, prepare to fry your French toast! Put 3 eggs into a bowl and a mix of cinnamon and sugar onto a separate plate. Whisk the eggs.

Dunk the rolled-up pieces of bread into the whisked eggs, then cover them in the cinnamon and sugar mixture.

Place the French toast rolls into a pan and cook them until brown. I recommend using a spatula (if you have one) to move around the rolls to cook them more thoroughly.

Once finished, top the delicacy off with some syrup or powdered sugar. Enjoy!



  • 1 package Oreos
  • 1 package large marshmallows
  • 4 tablespoons butter

Empty the package of Oreos into a large Ziploc bag and smash them into small pieces. This part of the recipe is a great way to take out your stress from the ensuing madness of the college school year, so have fun with it!

Put the marshmallows and butter into a bowl and microwave it for 2 minutes. You want the marshmallows to be fluffy and the butter to be melted.

Add the crushed Oreos to the bowl of the melted marshmallows and butter.

Pour the mixture onto a 8”×8” pan covered in aluminum foil.

Let the mixture cool for about 10 minutes. Afterwards, scoop the mixture and make it into little balls. You will be left with a tasty, bite-sized treat.

Peanut Butter and Jelly Panini


  • 2 slices of bread
  • 2 tablespoons all-natural peanut butter
  • 1 tablespoon red raspberry preserves

Cut or rip off the crusts from the slices of bread. Spread peanut butter on one slice, and jelly on the other.

Put the two slices together and pop the sandwich into a panini press for 5 minutes.

Although I doubt you will be able to find a panini press somewhere on campus, this recipe should strike up memories of home and a sweet, carefree childhood that was not tormented by final exams and seminars.

Ramen Macaroni and Cheese


  • 8 oz cheddar cheese
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • ¾ cup milk
  • 2 packages ramen noodles

Grate cheddar cheese and add cornstarch into a bowl. Combine the cornstarch, cheese, and milk into a saucepan and cook it on low heat

In a separate pan, boil just the ramen noodles. Afterwards, drain the noodles and combine it with the melted cheese mixture.
