Did you know...

                                               Using Your Microwave  As  A  Dynamic Duo

Baked  potatoes can be microwaved for 12 minutes [4 med.] then crisped up in a 450 * oven  for 15 minutes.

When you make an Apple pie -----microwave for 7 to 10 minutes [9"] then bake at 425* for 13 minutes.
Saves time and avoids heating up your kitchen.This will not work with refrigerated pie crust, such as PPillsbury], the crust just gets out of shape.

Warm pancake syrup....For 1 cup of syrup  1/12 to 2 minutes on reheat button

Soften frozen ice cream....on Warm for 1 1/2 Min

Use your microwaves to bake apples...covering them with WAXED paper for 12 to 14 minutes.

                                                               DID YOU KNOW----

By adding 1 tablespoon flour to a cake mix......instant whoopee pies! [not moist or pudding mix]

You can make BBQ chicken pizza at home...Just cut cooked chicken and cooked  sliced onion
  and add BBQ sauce, simmer together 1 minute. Place on pizza , bake..

Use coleslaw mix to add to soup for flavor and filler.

If you do any baking at all these are some items you need to have in the pantry, aside from the spices mentioned earlier;
             black pepper
             canola oil
            olive oil
            whole cloves and ground cloves
            bay leaves
            chicken broth

            More to follow.....
