Can You Microwave It?

Tuna

Q: We’ve got two pieces of tuna fish (they look a lot like steaks sized 2/3 of a hand) and we want to cook them. We have different spices, vinegar, oils, and a microwave oven (if you ask about a device). Is it possible to microwave tuna at all, and how to do that? Why…

Apple Pies

Q: My friend is that kind of person who always eats the last apple on the plate and then regrets about not being able to bake an apple pie because there are no apples left at home. I’d never take her seriously, because how could you cook an apple pie out of one apple only?…

Cheesecakes

Q: Cottage cheese is one of the compound products in the kitchen for many housewives. It is worth buying a dairy product of the wrong fatness, and you risk to get a completely different dish. So if you are going to cook something with cottage cheese (or cream cheese in our case), be ready to…

Peas

Q: Can you suggest some ways to boil/bake fresh or frozen peas in a microwave oven? We hate rising up early in the morning to cook something, and still want to feed our families with normal, nutritious food. How to Microwave Green Peas? First and foremost, you must know that peas do not like high…

Sweet Potatoes

Q: Sweet potato is not the kind of food that we often prepare for a lunch or dinner. Although, many of my friends like it. I must admit that I have never paid much attention to this vegetable. Well, now I am really interested in this kind of food. I use a microwave oven only,…
