WHAT PEOPLE SAY ABOUT MICROWAVE COOKING FOR ONE:
The wonderful and beautiful book arrived this week and I am thrilled! There are many more recipes then I expected. I am very excited since my husband often works late and I end up with sandwiches rather then making myself something to eat.—Barbara Andersen, New York
I received your cookbook in the mail yesterday afternoon and have already read the whole book. I'm very pleased with my purchase and know I'll use it everyday the rest of my life. I'm so glad I found your website. Thank you again.—Sara Oviatt, Idaho
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you. I'm an 81-year old and a 24/7 caretaker for my wife who has AD. I will certainly use the book to the best of my ability.—Darold L. Schorlig, California
My microwave was a gift for my 30th birthday, which makes it an oldie, but a goodie. The conversion chart is especially helpful. I use my microwave on a daily basis, but I know with your cookbook it will become even more valuable.—Marcia Scurfield, Kansas
