Not that I invented it, but I found a recipe for microwave scalloped potatoes with ham that I really liked. I think I will not make them in the regular oven anymore. The great thing about the microwave is that they are done in 25 minutes, instead of the hour and 15 or hour and a half they usually take. Have you invented something or done something different because you had to?

Not in the microwave. Every time I've tried to cook something in the microwave without directions, it's not good.

I had directions...it just is ordinarily I wouldn't use the microwave to cook scalloped potatoes. I liked it better than the oven way.

That sounds a good recipe to hang on to. Some things cook really well in the microwave.

I cook the pumpkin to make the puree for the pumpkin pie in the microwave.

I think it is a good recipe and can be baked in a few minutes. I think it is so handy to have a microwave.
