Leaving the husks on while microwaving ensures a very tender steamed corn, you might not even want butter or salt after tasting this corn! --- don't worry the silks will fall right off after cooking! For each ear increase microwaving time 3 minutes. Cooking time is for 1 ear of corn :)

My mom just gave me this recipe so I haven't tried it but she said the pickles are delicious. Microwave Bread & Butter Pickles

Recipe #3397

For those those who want a perfect baked potato but do not want to wait for an hour! The cooking times is for one potato you will need to increase time if you are making more than one --- adjust the ingredients to taste, this is perfect for a beginner cook! :)

Recipe #203463

This was one of my dad's recipes. You can always freeze unused parts of the asparagus for soup or stir frys. This is a quick and easy risotto to make. No fuss no muss you make it in the microwave in one dish. Very, very tasty. I hope you enjoy this dish as much as we do.

Recipe #195827

This becomes a healthier dish by microwaving instead of frying the eggplant (eggplant is like a sponge and quickly soaks up the cooking oil). This recipe has good flavor but if you think you would miss not having meat, you could add some cooked ground beef (about 1/2lb) as one of the layers.

This is a really tasty and very easy to prepare recipe I found in "500 Fat Free Recipes." It goes well with baked or grilled meats, and I really enjoyed it reheated for lunches. To make it vegan, use soymilk.

Recipe #111119

I've made this many times as a hurry-up side dish. When trying to figure out which region this recipe represented, I finally closed my eyes & picked one. Italian? Well, the word broccoli does come from the Italian "brocco" meaning arm branch so it kind of fits. Enjoy!

Recipe #169575

Fast fix up makes broccoli not the same old same old! My teens love this and will only eat broccoli like this or smothered in cheese- this is healthier! I created this recipe after the broccoli served at my fave Chinese place. The variety of ingredients apply to many regional cuisines such as Italian, Asian and SW.

Six minutes until hot steamy corn on the cob...and you don't even have to shuck the corn before cooking!

Recipe #119749

Our friend Betty makes this with cream cheese but when we need to cut down on fat I use chicken stock or a little skim evaporated milk - the cream cheese is nicer of course. I used stock in the photo I posted.

Recipe #185737

A very light salad to add to any dinner meals. I developed this recipe in 1995 and it has been a highly rated salad.

Recipe #18229

Simple and fast. I don't "cook" many dishes in the microwave, but I make an exception with this. Cooking time will vary by individual oven.

Recipe #126760

They serve these at a local restaurant here in TX. This is NOT a casserole! These guys are dressed for dinner in their best jackets! The WHOLE potato, baked and split like a white baked potato. You just gotta try these to believe how simple and delish they really are! Enjoy!

Recipe #164107

This is the only way I make corn chowder. It doesn't leave that awful skum around the pot like cooking it on the stove does, that you almost have to sandblast off. The bacon gives a wonderful flavour, and the two kinds of corn a nice consistency.

Recipe #56909

Low fat and microwave friendly! A low calorie alternative to real pasta.

A relatively quick way to have a flavorful vegetarian dinner. This dish is a meal within itself. This recipe is adapted from Favorite Brand Name Fresh Foods cookbook.

Recipe #123842

This is a GREAT risotto though it's not made in the traditional way. It takes about the same length of time compared with the stove top version, but the advantage is that you don't have to stay with it. I usually serve this with a piece of sirloin steak and a green salad.

Recipe #160356

Broccoli as a Fast and Healthy Snack/Side. It's simple, and probably common sense, but it's VERY good!
