June 28, 2018

Need a dessert in a hurry?? Company coming?? Chocolate craving?? Microwave Foods is the project for you!! Microwaves can do more than just pop popcorn or heat water. You can make a cake in 15 minutes without heating up the kitchen. Fudge is easy to do in the microwave. Pineapple Upside Down cake will fragrance your whole house. 

You will learn: basic cooking skills, how to use various kitchen tools, crack an egg, use kitchen math, share the kitchen with others, read recipes, gather your ingredients before you begin, share your product with your classmates and do constructive criticism of the products you make. You'll, also, have to "learn" your microwaves features and the wattage. You have to be able to adjust the timing by practicing in your microwave.

The Microwave Foods Recipe Card must be printed on white cardstock.
