Cut up Bread Bagets, Buns etc.... scoop out bread from center ... add dip of choice and veggies. Keeps everyone from standing around the dip bowl AND Double Dipping. Keep extra dip on hand so that more can be scooped into bread dipping bowls. Very clever!
Glass bowl + ceramic plate + popcorn kernels = perfectly popped popcorn in microwave. No bag. No butter or oil. Nothing to throw away afterward. And no un-popped kernels. Put 1/4 cup dry popcorn kernels in microwave-safe glass bowl (pyrex is a great choice). Place microwave-safe plate on top of bowl. Plate should be wide enough to go beyond rim of bowl. Microwave 2 min 45 sec. gm
