Default Microwave cooking

http://shine.yahoo.com/shine-food/5-...182600685.html

I always use the wave to prep veggies that I don't want as done as whatever I'm cooking on the stove before I include them, like onions which can get all burnt since I tend to like my fried foods well cooked. Onions and zuchinni with butter/herbs are great waved, and zapping potatoes so they're tender makes frying them up easier. Eggs in many forms do well too.

1 medium sized trout, one and a half minutes (or until the eyes start to pop out). Perfect and moist.

Cake, five minutes.

If you are really in a hurry, buy the prepared, ready-to-bake kind...just open, pour, and bake.

(frosting; two bars of dark chocolate and about a third of a cup od cream. Zap a bit and stir a bit, repeat, repeat, repeat, til melted and glossy)

Drying basil so that it doesn't turn black, but stays green and pretty (also works for other 'herbs'); put a few paper towles on a plate, cover with a single layer of basil (or other), top with more paper towels. Zap, turning often and changing the paper towels when they get too wet, til dry.

The trick is to not zap for more than maybe twenty seconds at a time, and turn often, changing the paper towels when wet (you can hang the paper towels up to dry and re-use them). Be very careful to not scorch or set alight the basil.

Hot washcloths for wiping hands and faces or a baby's butt; wet the washcloth and stick it in the microwave for maybe ten seconds. Watch out, it gets hot fast!

If it's for a baby's butt, simply turn it inside out and chuck it in the diaper pail, afterwards...washes up just fine.

Soft boiled eggs; I use those little eggcookers, but a glass or a teacup will do..break in the egg, poke the yolk with a toothpick, sprinkle with salt and pepper, top with a dab of butter, and then zap it for one and a half turns of the revolving plate in the microwave. Have hot rice or toast ready.

But you might need to burn the basil:

Quietly and gently Don Pancho bent down and picked up some basil “Look” he smiled “it is burnt, you burnt it with your energy, that is a really wonderful thing”.

This is an $11 gadget for cooking hard- or soft-boiled eggs in a microwave. (Actually, the eggs are steamed, not boiled.)

That looks interesting, it seems you can use the entire egg, with shell.

I use individual ones like these, except mine don't have the cool chicken feet.
