Here’s what you need to make this pancake, which is a very easy to make variation on the microwave cooked bowl pancake that substitutes packaged pancake flour and cereal with high-protein coconut flour, shredded coconut and ground flaxseed for outstanding flavor and long-lasting energy.

Microwave Bowl Pancake

Gorgeous weather here in the Northeast! Legs are screamin’ at me to get out on the bike – I’ll obey ‘soon as I fire this off!

Here’s what I had yesterday morning to power me through putting together the step-by-step picture book recipe you can get here and a 35+ mile bike ride later in the afternoon (admittedly, after a nut butter and toast snack shortly before hitting the road).

Microwave Cooked Bowl PancakeThe great things about a bowl pancake:

  1. Fantastic flavor that can be altered easily to suit your individual taste.
  2. Speed.
  3. Ease – you use the same bowl to mix, cook and eat the pancake, which makes both prep and cleanup as fast and easy as possible.

Microwave Cooked Pasta with Instant Tuna Parmesan – All in Pictures


Microwave Cooked Pasta with Instant Tuna ParmesanI mentioned in the last post I had another microwave cooked pasta one-bowl meal recipe ready to go. Here it is: Microwave Cooked Pasta with Instant Tuna Parmesan, which is just an easy variation on the Microwave Cooked Pasta with Instant Chicken Parmesan I posted about a week ago.

Briefly, all you need to do is add the ingredients you see below in a microwave oven safe bowl, heat for about 2 minutes in the microwave oven, and you’re done. Easy – and darn flavorful!

Left-Handed (Fully Flavorful) Fried Eggs – All in Pictures

Left-Handed EggsI’ve posted a few microwave cooked pasta one-bowl meals here recently, and though I do have one more all set to go, I thought I’d change it up a bit with a fully flavorful fried egg recipe my son introduced me to last year he calls “Left-Handed Eggs”.

I asked my son, why the name, “left-handed”? “Just because.” Quite right! Absolutely! Right on!

The great things about these “left-handed eggs” is that, first, they taste great, and second, they take no longer to make than straight up fried eggs because the flavor-enhancing ingredients are added as the eggs cook in the pan.

Here’s what it takes to make left-handed (fully flavorful) fried eggs.

Microwave Cooked Pasta with Lighter Alfredo Sauce – All in Pictures

Microwave Cooked Pasta with Lighter Alfredo SaucePasta with Alfredo sauce – great flavor! But, wow, can it leave you feeling full awfully fast, which is mostly due to the heavy cream called for in the traditional recipe. Just like the stove cooked pasta with lighter Alfredo sauce, this very quick and easy microwave cooked version of the same recipe is lighter because it substitutes evaporated milk for heavy cream – with no sacrifice in flavor.

Ounce for ounce (the circled areas below show the difference in serving size), heavy cream has more than twice the calories and five times the fat of evaporated milk.

Here’s what you’ll need to make one serving of microwave cooked pasta with lighter Alfredo sauce.

Microwave Cooked Pasta with Instant Chicken ParmesanThis is a great way to use leftover pasta to put together a fast, flavorful meal.

Microwave Cooked Pasta with Apples and Cheese – All in Pictures

Microwave Cooked Pasta with Apples and CheesePasta with fresh apples and cheese? You bet! It’s really just a minor variation on pasta with lighter Alfredo sauce (I’ll lay down the microwave cooked version of that real soon). Then throw in some dried cranberries for a chewy “zing” and a shot of balsamic vinegar for a good shot of zest! It’s all very quick & easy, especially if you’re using leftover pasta.
