Need a quick breakfast? Just beat some eggs with some milk and cheese in a bowl, add some salt and pepper, and microwave for a minute and a half. Remember to stop at about the 45 second mark to stir the eggs.

Parmesan cheese bowls

Parmesan cheese bowls

This one is a bit tricky but it will definitely impress your friends. Spread some parmesan cheese in a pizza-like circle on some parchment paper. Microwave it until it is golden brown. Now, working quickly, take the circle of parmesan cheese and place it over an upside down bowl (so it assumes its shape). Place another upside down bowl over the cheese so that it is pressed between the two upside down bowls, and wait for a bit. Now fill the bowl with salad and congratulations fancy pants, you’re basically French!

So re-crisping potato chips is cool but actually making them is cooler! The hardest part comes first. Slice some potatoes as thin as you can and arrange them on a plate. Now microwave them in 3 minute bursts, flipping them and decreasing the power level each time. Go forth and impress your friends!
