Cook Perfect Eggs in the Microwave!
Yes YOU CAN Housewives!
You Can Cook Eggs in the Microwave!
You can safely make eggs in the microwave until you learn to use a real stove. Practice on your own time with the Easy Bake Oven until you are ready for fire. Let's not complicate things. Hairspray is very flammable, so let's save the chemistry lesson for later and stick with the nuker.
Cooking is an important skill that can be learned. If you want to keep your husband happy - nothing works better than a home cooked meal. When my husband and I were dating I was hanging out at his house one afternoon. He left for a short time and it just so happened that the door bell rang. I peeked through the curtain to see one of his old girl friends standing on the porch with a gift! What luck!
I couldn't wait to answer the door but I composed myself and tried to stop smiling like a Cheshire Cat. I opened the door, smiled sweetly and enjoyed the look of confustion that was all over her pretty face.
"Ummm, I brought Dave some cookies," she stuttered. She gripped the tin as if she was thinking about keeping it.
"Thanks!" I said with enthusiasm as I took the tin from her. "I love cookies!"
I was eating them when Dave got home. "Your old girlfriend..the blond... made me cookies," I said trying not to laugh. "My cookies are way better than hers," I said still chewing.
Dave was real surprised too! He had that stuck, sorta sick look on his face. The bottom line is - make sure you can out cook the competition because apparently guys are keeping score on this one. Guys should be able to cook too - nothing is more appealing than a dude in a Chef's hat.
There are several products available to cook eggs in the microwave but my favorite two (tried and true!) are the egg poacher and omelet maker by Nordic Ware. My 12 year old successfully uses these products so I am confident anyone over the age of 12 can do this.

Poached eggs used to be quite tedious to make. Typically they are cooked by carefully sliding raw eggs into simmering water and cooking until the egg white solidified. This method can be messy and difficult unless you are an accomplished cook.
Now, with the Nordic Ware Egg Poacher anyone can make perfect poached eggs!
Poached eggs are used to make sexy dishes such as Eggs Benedict, Eggs Florentine or Eggs Sardou. You can buy packaged Hollandaise Sauce and simply top a toasted English Muffin with Ham or Spinach and voila! You will appear to be a culinary genius.

Egg Topping Ideas
The Omelet originated in France and it was a "pancake of eggs." Raw eggs are beaten lightly and then cooked in a thin layer, stuffed with meats, vegetables or cheese and then folded. Typically an Omelet pan is required with lots of practice to make the perfect omelet.
With the Nordic Ware Omelet Pan anyone, even my 12 year old daughter, can make a perfect omelet in two minutes or less. Simply mix eggs, water and your favorite ingredients and you will have a beautiful dish that tastes delicious in a matter of minutes. This is a fabulous fall back recipe if you burn dinner. You can always find some kind of cheese or meat to accompany eggs.
