If you’ve been looking at those cool Instagram food pictures and longing for the day you can post one yourself, good news: You can, and without spending all the money of a chic restaurant. And bonus points — your trendy food will be homemade.

Why wait in line for two hours at Black Tap Craft Burgers & Beer just to pay $14 for a couple milkshakes? And who has the money to pay for the overpriced (but deliciously decadent) ice cream cones at Emack and Bolio’s? If you want to be ahead of the food trends, make a bacon, egg and cheese doughnut before it becomes an even bigger Instagram hit.

Not only will you get to indulge on these treats, but your Instagram will immediately be filled with fabulous food posts that are more than Insta-worthy. You can make these in any small kitchen, even a shared one in a dorm. These recipes are easy, fast and absolutely delicious.
