I was asked to post this relic from my college days when the only cooking items we were allowed to have in our dorm rooms was a hotpot and a popcorn popper. Its about as non-gourmet as non-gourmet gets, but its cheap, easy, filling, and suprizingly tasty. Its tastier than it sounds and it still shows up on my table from time to time, much to my kids' delight.
