  • New! – Your Chicagoboyz Helpful Cooking Tip of the Day

    Posted by Jonathan on May 18th, 2009 (All posts by )

    If the instructions say to microwave something for 4 minutes on high and then 4-1/2 minutes on medium, and you can’t figure out how to set the power to medium so you say “screw it” and give it 8 minutes on high and then go do something and come back about fifteen minutes later, your results may not entirely resemble the “serving suggestion.”

      Did you dig out the “good” part in the middle and just leave the charred remains on the outsides?

      4 min at 100% power = 8 min at 50% power or 40 minutes at 10% power YMMV.

      First rule of bachelor cooking, cook everything on high.

      I think we try to cook things to fast in a microwave. Taking even an extra 5 minutes to cook something at lower power can produce significant improvements. I suggest starting the cooking process at half power for twice as long ad recommended. This will let heat build and spread evenly through the food. Then finish off with full power for about 1/4 of the recommended cooking time if needed.

      Holy crap! How many of these behaviours must I recognize in myself before I should worry that I’m a bachelor in the body of a middle-aged married woman????
