Maximize Your Microwave Oven


For most people who are as busy as bees, the microwave oven is the greatest invention in our lifetime.
All we have to do is zap some leftover or frozen food and voila! we have a meal in just a few minutes.
However, this gizmo has a lot more to offer than just popping popcorn and reheating leftover food.

Bake those spuds

Rub a potato with olive oil and microwave it until tender.  Once it's tender, just pile up those toppings.

Warm those tortillas

Are you a fan of Mexican food?  Soft tacos?  Burritos?  Quesadilla?
Just wrap those tortilla in a damp paper towel and zap for under a minute in high.

Want some corn on the cob?

Love corn?  I do!  Just place unshucked corn on plate and microwave for 6 minutes on high.
Then wait for 5 minutes before you start removing the husks and silk.

Yummy bacon

Just sandwich bacon strips between two double layers of paper towels... zap it for 4-5 minutes and that's it.
No need for oil.

Give it a squeeze
