From the Publisher
All of the dishes in this cookbook can be completely prepared in the microwave oven, saving the cook time, money, hassle, mess, and waste so everything is prepared in the microwave in simple containers and without the oils and fats used in traditional sautéing, frying and broiling.
Inexperienced cooks will be delighted with these easy-to-follow recipes. Coquilles St. Jacques, Chicken Parmesan, Eggs Florentine, Asparagus Soup, Chocolate Custard, and Peach Soufflé are all easier to prepare in the microwave. With almost 300 recipes, "Microwave Cooking For One" offers plenty of possibilities for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks. And when you begin with a recipe for one, it's easy to double or even triple a dish if you need more food to go around.

Curiously, I picked it up and decided to have a a quick read. As I began flipping through the pages, I began to see that this was no ordinary cookbook. No my friends, this was a book passed down from the Gods themselves, displaying the infinite beauty of their messenger Marie T Smith on the cover. I knew at that moment, that this book would change my life. I purchased it with the last few dollars to my name and brought it home. Because of this book, I now eat like a King. Filet Mignon? Chicken Alfredo? Caviar? Its all in there. Not only do you never need to buy another cookbook, there will never be a book so beautifully written ever again. From that point, I ahve divided my life into two different categories, life before Microwave Cooking for One and life after, much like the Old and New Testament.
From this book I have made more friends than I can count, gained 30 pounds of rock hard muscle, and have a new job as VP of a major financial holdings company. This book worked for me, and I am sure it will work for you.
Since owning this book my microwave does more than just heat up left overs. And this was essentially the purpose of this purchase.
Pages don't hold up well to tears.
And boy have I been!
Now I do own a stovetop but it broke and to date remains unfixable so up until now I was completely unable to cook anything that tastes good. With the help of this book I can make roast, and really anything I want in under half an hour. My cooking abilities have really skyrocketed and so has my positive outlook on life.
After just a few weeks of using this I became so much more enjoyable to be around that a cute girl at the supermarket noticed me and started up a conversation and well long story short I told her that I know how to cook and invited her over for dinner tonight!
That was an hour ago, she'll be over here in another three and I just realize that I made a terrible mistake.
I only know how to cook for one...
