Life on campus is always full of new opportunities and surprises, one of which is learning how to cook for yourself. Maybe you miss home and want a meal just like your mom would make, or you could be sick of eating Wendy's everyday. In either case, making food yourself is always a way to be more responsible and learn one of life’s many skills.
One of the most recognizable home-cooked meals is a loaded baked potato. This recipe is dorm friendly, delicious, and can be made using only the microwave and minimal dishes.

1-2 russet potatoes
Cheese (your preference)
Salt and pepper to taste
Use a fork and pierce the skin of the potato
Microwave potato for 10-12 minutes on high
Let it cool for 3-5 minutes
Cut through the potato and scrape the inside
