Microwaves kinda get a bad rap in the kitchen - many serious chefs refuse to even have one - and we used to just use ours to nuke frozen dinners and popcorn... 'Til we discovered there was more that little box could do, thanks to Not Your Mother's Microwave Cookbook: Fresh, Delicious, and Wholesome Main Dishes, Snacks, Sides, Desserts, and More ($10). Recipes like an avocado & cream cheese omelette (oh man, so good), scalloped potatoes, and BBQ chicken drumsticks will definitely change your anti-microwave tune. The recipes are cheap, healthy, and pretty darn tasty - and none of them take very long, either! Microwave, you've just been promoted from supporting cast member to All-Star!
