Announcing 'Microwave Easy Cooking' Event!

Taking part in an event has always been something I look forward and is such a fun. I had real fun looking at new recipes and cuisine and trying them out. Since then I always thought I should start one myself. As I said I was planning on Express Meals or something on Lunch Box Series. But looks like Microwave cooking is more in demand.

Cooking in Microwave has always been a big challenge to me even now. Most I have done has been only baking a cake. Then I use it mostly for reheating. We had an oven, which we used extensively for baking. But when we exchange that for a Microwave, we thought we will change our cooking drastically. But when faced with the fact that it involves very specific requirements, I have been hesitant on using it frequently. I came to know few others also felt the same. So here comes a challenge to cook in Microwave, based on the theme of the Month.
