A microwave is a must have in your Southern Oaks Apartment home and more versatile that you know.  Yes, it will reheat left overs in a pinch, warms up cold coffee and cooks a frozen dinner in minutes when we are too tired to cook.  

Besides what most people use a microwave for, there are 3 things that you may not know this little technological kitchen marvel can also do.

  1. Clean your sponges – Make it a habit to clean your kitchen sponge every day by wetting it thoroughly ( a dry sponge could melt) and microwave it for 1 to 2 minutes.  This will get rid of 99.9% of germs that like to grow in your sponge.
  2. Scrambled Eggs – There are a lot of ways you can cook eggs in the microwave. Next time you want some scrambled eggs,  whisk a couple of eggs together in a microwave safe bowl, pop it in the microwave and cook for about 30 seconds.  Don’t make the mistake of microwaving an egg in its shell or you will have and ‘eggsplosion’ to clean up.
  3. Single serving cookie – With a mug and several ingredients, you can have a warm fresh cookie to enjoy in just a minute.  Here’s a simple recipe to try:  1)  Mix 2 tablespoons of melted butter, 3 tablespoons of sugar, and 1 egg in a large mug.   2)  Add and stir in 1/3 cup of flour and a pinch of baking powder and some chocolate chips.  3)  Microwave for 1 minute.  Enjoy!

How do you use your microwave to make your life a little bit easier?
