Microwave Recipes For One

Annette Yates
Authors:
Annette Yates

The microwave has many advantages over conventional cooking: it's quicker, more economical, cleaner and easier. Microwave ovens take up very little space. They produce fewer cooking smells and less steam, and kitchen/cooking areas remain cool. Annette Yates' book is designed specifically for the person who lives alone, or who has to prepare individual meals for some other reason: perhaps members of the family need to eat at different times or have conflicting tastes and preferences, or perhaps someone is on a special diet which requires food to be cooked separately. Included are recipes for: breakfasts; soups, starters and sauces; fish, meat, poultry, vegetable, cheese, egg and pasta dishes; and desserts - PLUS an indispensable cooking guide which explains how to adapt family recipe instructions to the smaller amounts needed for a single portion.

Annette Yates

Wake up to the aroma of fresh bread wafting through your kitchen every morning! A dream? No. With your bread machine, it's a reality. Push a button or two and transform what seems like a laborious, time-consuming and skilled process into a spectacularly easy affair. So why do you need this book when bread machines come with their own recipes? Well, such recipes vary, sometimes on the high side, in the amount of yeast, salt, sugar, fat and dried milk powder they contain. Annette Yates has set about reducing these ingredients and providing recipes for making loaves that are as natural as they can be. And they are delicious too. Or you can add extra ingredients - like herbs, spices, seeds, nuts, fruit, vegetables, honey, mustard and even chocolate! - and transform simple bread into something really special. Try it and see...
