Quick Tip - in the kitchen

Did you know that you can poach eggs in the microwave? Stick 'em in, one egg at a time, for about 30 seconds. You'll hear a pop around second 26 - that's just air releasing from under the egg, not the yolk exploding. If you like them a little more "done", open the microwave after 20 seconds or so, slide a spoon underneath to release any air, and pop it back in for another 10 seconds. If you want it really well done, you're on your own - I've never cooked them longer than 20 seconds, so I have no idea what might happen!
