1: Mac and Cheese
Who isn’t missing those amazing pasta dine-outs? Well, at least I am. All you need is a bowl full of macaroni, a cup of water, half cup of cheese, half a cup of milk and a pinch of salt for taste. That’s it!
You just need to boil the pasta and start cooking it in the microwave. Continue till it becomes soft and then add milk and cheese. Cook it in the microwave for 30 seconds and kudos your mac and cheese is ready. Add chilli flakes and oregano for the Italian flavour.
2: Chocolate Cake
You definitely miss those amazing pastries, don’t you? Just can’t resist those sugar cravings guys! Well, I can’t bake a cake for you, but yes I can surely share my quick recipe on how to bake a cake right at your home.
Ingredients: 1/3 cup of butter, 1/2 cup of flour, 2 tablespoons sugar, 1 tablespoon cocoa powder, 1/2 teaspoon vanilla essence, 1/4 teaspoon baking powder, 1 egg, 1/2 cup milk and a pinch of salt.
All you have to do is add sugar, egg, vanilla extract and milk to prepare a mix. Add flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt and whip it to prepare a smooth mixture.

Let it cool and turn the mug upside down, and your chocolate is ready!
3: Corn On The Cob
Well, who would have thought that the best way to cook a grill favourite like corn on the cob would be to nuke it in the microwave, husk and all? Not only does it become sweeter and tender but the husk slides right off, too.
This is the best way to have an evening snack, also you can add a pinch salt and spices to give the corn a better taste.
4: No-Fry Potato Chips
Yes, you read that right, no-fry chips. If you can slice the potatoes to just the right thickness, these chips will be the most wondrous things to come out of your microwave. What you have to do is arrange thinly-sliced potatoes in a single layer on a plate and microwave for three minutes at a time, decreasing the power level and flipping the potatoes with each round. Also, sprinkle a little bit of salt and chilli for a better taste.
5: French Toast
Here is one food in a plate that might actually be yummier than the real thing. It’s the simplest recipe, which turns out to be the tastiest breakie you can make at home. All you have to do is take bread and slice it into pieces, dip it in a mixture of beaten eggs and cook it in the microwave of a minute. Add a generous squirt of syrup or honey and your tasty French toast is ready.
6: Scrambled Eggs
