Feb 16th – Use your microwave to heat up small portions.

I do a lot of cooking (not always by choice!), but I am not terribly fond of using the microwave, until now.  According to the federal government’s Energy Star program, you can reduce cooking energy by as much as 80 percent when using your microwave for small portions.

Also, keep the inside surfaces of the microwave clean to maximize the amount of energy reflected toward the food.

Never thought of that!
