Almost everyone has a microwave oven – but hardly anyone knows how to get the most out of this ubiquitous appliance. Enter Not Your Mother's Microwave Cookbook. Cookbook author extraordinaire Beth Hensperger has unlocked the secrets of the microwave, and in this comprehensive volume, she spills all. Here, you’ll find all the tools you need to put speedy, sophisticated, delicious, from-scratch meals on the table morning, noon, and night.   Your day of microwave cooking might begin with an Avocado-Cream Cheese Omelet, Family-Style Cream Maple-Cranberry Oatmeal, or a Cereal Bowl Vegetable Frittata. Come lunchtime, enjoy a satisfying Cream of Roasted Tomato Soup with a Grilled Cheese Sandwich or a One-Minute Apple Quesadilla. For dinner, try the Petrale Sole Amandine or Barbeque Chicken Thighs, accompanied by Asparagus in Wine or Roasted Potatoes with Garlic and Rosemary. And for entertaining, how about Middle Eastern Eggplant Dip with Pita Crisps or the indulgence of Hot Chocolate with Vanilla Whipped Cream for a Crowd? Even dessert-lovers get their due with Lemon Panna Cotta, Coconut-Macadamia Shortbread, and much more.   If you’ve been using your microwave just for basic kitchen tasks, you don’t know what you’re missing. Take fresh look at that powerful little oven on your countertop: For mealtimes made easy, there’s simply no better solution.

    Disappointing Book and Explosive Recipes

    Beth has had an interesting series of books on different types of cooking. Unfortunately, microwaving does not seem to be her forte. Several of the recipes turned out rubbery or undercooked and could not be salvaged. The ingredients were not inexpensive and I hated having to throw out fresh food that was made inedible by these untested recipes. One recipe in this book exploded in my microwave...and I followed the recipe precisely. The cookbook that came free with my microwave oven was limited in recipes but at least those recipes came out beautifully. There are plenty of better recipes on the Interweb...and they are free. A waste of time, money and good ingredients.
