It is a great book have made several of the dishes and they have turned out really good. Explains things real clear I am sure I will enjoy this book for a long time to come.
Several home moves ago, I had a marvelous little book I'd bought for a buck. Its stunning feature was the deconstructing of measurements and times and other tips in the intro. It was difficult to know which cookbooks could duplicate this feature that I looked for. The book proudly sits atop my microwave!
I purchased this book for my granddaughter who has to prepare her own meals due to her mother's work schedule. It has helped her prepare nutritious meals and really feel in control of the situation instead of feeling sorry for herself and not knowing what to do. A very good purchase.
This is one of the most well-written and well thought-out microwave cooking manuals. We have consistently used ours through the years because of the accurate instructions and predictable results. The ring-binder format gave us space to insert other Betty Crocker microwave recipes we came across over the years, especially those recently available at the website. The binder itself is very roomy, the rings are about 1.5 inches in diameter, and you could add a large amount of extra recipe sheets - you just need a hole puncher.We use a 1000-watt microwave, and found that the recipes work out very well by reducing the power level a bit (say, to 80% in most cases). Learning to use a microwave to cook can be challenging, as opposed to just heating up frozen meals or warming your leftovers. It took us a while to learn how our particular microwave would deliver the different types of food in this cookbook, but we've had clean sailing with it for almost 2 decades now.There's a bit of everything here from appetizers to desserts. In the case of microwave cookery, it is CRUCIAL to follow the ingredient amounts, procedures, and timings as accurately as possible. For example, just a little too much flour in a muffin batter can produce a bouncing rubber ball instead of a tender cake-like muffin. Too little fat (oils, butter) can result in dry-burning. Substituted ingredients to suit your tastes have to be tried out: you can either make a recipe better, or inedible.Sometimes we only learn about recipe collecting the hard way: Not all recipes found online are good, and the microwave recipes are the most "iffy". We have always had the best luck with those from the gods of the cookbook world, Betty Crocker, McCalls, etc. So, the recipes we add to this cookbook come mostly from such trusted publishers, and from very clever and inventive friends.On the whole, this Betty Crocker publication is an excellent place to start with microwave cooking.
I am a simple cook and have consistently found that the Betty Crocker cookbooks provide me what I need. I don't need to read reviews on these cookbooks because I know they will fulfill what I am looking for and I have never been disappointed.
367 pages of easy to follow recipes (even for me), nutritional information, principles, techniques and what utensils are safe in the microwave. Updated with the newest healthy recipes. Beautiful photos. A modern edition of the familiar Betty Crocker's Microwave Cookbook.
Great book for getting everyday microwave cooking times. I would purchase again. very good transaction. good service. all is good.
just the book I needed. Wasn't disappointed and so happy that I found it. It has given me quick and easy ideas to prepare meals and desserts for those last minute type sit downs. A book worth having for yourself or give to someone special.
