In The Microwave Oven Cookbook, by Loyta Wooding, there are a million (well, alot anyway!) of tiny tips and recipes that are so easy and yummy, a beginner would master the art of cooking in a jiffy!
The cookbook may be used to magically heat or cook anything from appetizers to soups to gourmet dishes to elegant desserts!
The only parts I found unuseful are combination cooking and fruits. Combo cooking is when one uses the microwave along with a regular stovetop/oven. Fruits just do not seem to me to be good when prepared in a microwave.
Sauce recipes start out the cookbook. They contribute distinct flavors to foods such as meats and vegetables.
There is a useful chart for roasting beef. Say good-bye to having to leave meat out all day just to thaw!
Fish may only be thawed in a microwave. Do not heat as in partial cooking as it wil toughen.
Vegetables are discussed and praised for microwaves making them crispy, garden-fresh and delicious! Included is a chart.
What I learned is that pasta may be cooked in a microwave! Gone are the days of having to wait for a boiling pot to boil water and having to wait the old-fashion way.
Cooking eggs are pretty simple. But hey, there may be a few people who don't know how.
Have some lunchmeat and bread? Why not heat up some soup in the microwave to go with it! Most offices have a microwave to use for lunchtime. Lunch accomplished!
A really good cookbook. If you don't cook, this is a good way to learn. If you do cook, let the microwave save you a few minutes and have a moment to do something else like spending a few with family. Family and good food together would decrease alot of problems in today's society.
