My new microwave is here! Haven't had one in five years. Hubby is now retired so had to get one. It's on my kitchen counter until we can put a shelf above the stove. I don't mind it there too much because it's red.Check it out in my photos. Love it! All I use it for is heating up leftovers. Do any of you use it to actually cook something? Any quick tips for me?

That's a pretty one, misskitty! Congrats! No, I never cook in mine, just warm ups or boiling water for tea. My husband doesn't like the taste of boiled microwave water. We use a teapot for him.

Thank you Cathy. Now that I have it I want to use it more. That's funny your husband doesn't like boiled microwave water. My husband doesn't mind the taste of heating up his leftover coffee from the morning but I think that tastes gross.

Hi, sorry,not much help, heat tea/coffee --- heat plates --- heat indian chapattis/papadums --- defrost meat --- warm up dog food. HOWEVER

Hey Don, heating plates is an excellent idea. I hate putting hot food on a cold plate and that will be so much easier than the oven. Thank you!!

Save time with this tomato risotto made in the microwave. The richness and creaminess are still present without hours of stirring.

Perfect! Thanks Ken, this is just the type of stuff I was looking for. I forgot I used to scramble eggs in the microwave. I saved that eggs benedict recipe in my favorites.It's one of my favorite meals and that recipe looks like a good one. Thanks again!

I like to cook potato chunks in the micro especially red potatoes. I can't remember the "why" but the skin keeps it's color better than if you boil them. Also, it's so much less mess and heat. :)

Just wanted to say hello to you MissKitty!! By the way how is your kitty? Dipstick spends most of the time out side now, as I told you before she is not big on too many people, so I feed her on the deck( its a covered one) but she has competion as the bluejays like her foos as much as she does,Lol! My husband just discovered a squirrrel in his garage, it seems to have young ones, so its making its self at home, he feeds it peanut butter every day or so. ( I think my husband has gone squirrely!! ha, ha. Its funny because that is how we foung Frank the tank, he just wandered in one day.

I love your animal stories Bernadene! I would love to have a pet squirrel in my garage. My husband has a friend who has two crows follow him around everday at work. He feeds them little treats and now they won't leave his side. My hubby said he wouldn't have believed it if I hadn't seen it for himself. I wish a kitty would wander in to my life. Missy is doing well, crying for love and attention all the time as usual!

Hi manella, great idea for the baked potato. I thought I would hate having it on the counter but now I actually like it. One day we'll get that shelf built and I can put my food processor back where it belongs.

Aw, that is sweet about the crows following him around. Animals know who thier friends are don't they? Don't worry you will one day soon have a kitty or two who need you and will find you as there are just so many needy ones out there, I will send them your way! Glad missy is doing well and of course she crys for attention after all you are MISSKITTY!!

I call her miss kitty all the time! Alot of other peeps call me that too. And yes send some kitties my way! I so much want to go to the shelter and get a couple of young cats or kittens but missy would be p$ssed if I did. That's why if one showed up on my doorstep I would have no other choice but to take them in. Crazy logic I know. That's how much I love my missy.

I understand about some cats that are not too accepting of new cat family members, it can creat choas in a house, I remember one time that we got a new cat and Fillmore the older one had a hissy fit, I mean like it wasn't safe to stay in the same room as them as my legs looked like checker boards after the fight was over!! The logic is not crazy as I would not turn away an animal in need if they wandered to my door, I best not say that too loud as I may have a hoard show up tomorrow, we just got our 3 kids raised and gone and our place becomes like the Brady bunch for animals!

Ha ha. I would love a house full of animals. Hubby not so much. I don't think missy would fight with the new kitties but she would not be a happy camper. She likes getting all the attention and she's getting up there in age so I don't want to upset her.

That is true isn't it, don't we all just want a peaceful life and our animals are no different. Well Miss kitty you take care and I always enjoy talking to you, and I will probably have more animal stories to share! Give Missy Kitty a hug for me!!

If all the stirring, and stirring and stirring has discouraged you from making creamy risotto, then read on. This simple recipe cooks up in the microwave all by itself in about 20 minutes. You can add different ingredients to the basic recipe, and still
