Cooking in the Nuculator - Martha Stewart is putting her time at Camp Cupcake to good use: learning "'innovative ways to do microwave cooking' by working with other prisoners to 'come up with some creative recipes' based on ingredients available at the prison commissary," her lawyer said. Maybe she'll bring back the 80's fad where people thought you could actually cook with a microwave, not just heat water and warm up leftovers. (I even made a nasty yellow cake in a microwave once!) With Martha's eye on experimental cooking, perhaps the next book we'll see from her (after her prison memoir, natch) will involve "saving hard-boiled eggs from the prison kitchen and then using noodles and other flavoring to make an Asian-style dish." Mmm, mmm...good!
