Not Your Mother's Microwave Cookbook Review
"I was so excited when I saw a microwave cookbook fall into my lap. What could possibly be simpler or quicker than using a microwave! As I browsed through the book, I was incredibly impressed with the cooking times—The Pesto Shrimp Pasta (on pg. 210) is ready in only six minutes! What’s even better is how the introduction provides some wonderful tips on how to get your money’s worth out of your microwave, including cooking techniques, features of newer machines, and much more! This cookbook is perfect for someone who’s on a budget, but doesn’t want to sacrifice quality home cooking. It would definitely make a great gift for your favorite college student who’s stuck choosing between questionable dorm food and Ramen noodles. There’s even a fun bonus section in the back that lists common kitchen conversions which would be useful for any recipe you have lying around the house. This is definitely one cookbook you’re going to want to keep handy!"

The book offers more than 125 recipes with the goal of making you an easy, and most importantly, healthy dinner. My one concern, which was immediately answered, was if it was unhealthy to cook food, especially meats in the microwave? Beth Henspereger gives a detailed, yet simple, science lesson on the history of microwaves, the technology, microwave safety, cooking techniques and foods to avoid. Interesting and thorough, it instantly put my fears of cooking with a microwave aside. And good riddance, because some of these recipes are too good to pass up!

"After having read Not Your Mother’s® Microwave Cookbook by Beth Hensperger, all I can say is that I really wish I had this cookbook on hand when I was in college! The microwave oven is a much maligned kitchen appliance that is finally getting in just due. If you think microwave ovens are just for reheating leftovers, then you need to read this book. What I loved the most about this cookbook is just how varied all the recipes, as it shows you how to make a complete and balanced meal where everything is cooked in the microwave. If you often find yourself short on time at the end of the day but are still craving a quality meal, then Not Your Mother’s® Microwave Cookbook by Beth Hensperger is for you. "
