If I didn't try this myself, I would have never believed it was possible. A friend was telling me about this the other day and I'm like...ahhh, I don't know - how does something get crisp and brown in the Microwave? Usually the only thing I use the Microwave for is to heat up cold coffee, the odd left-over and microwave popcorn.
Even transplanted Neapolitan restauranteurs seem to immediately delete it from their public repertoire when they set up restaurants outside of Naples or even outside of Italy.
After having nailed — if I do say so myself — how to make homemade goat cheese chèvre style , my confidence as an amateur cheesemaker has soared.

And they’re right to tremble in fear; my refrigerator has become the place where milks and creams from different animal species come to curdle and age. Homemade cream cheese is my latest project.
When I started cooking in earnest a couple of years ago, I thought about what types of food I like to go out for, and how I could make some of those dishes at home.

Oh, how I LOVE these little cuties! What an ingenious idea – bacon, eggs and toast all wrapped up in a cute little muffin-sized package. Even better, these take next to no time to throw together so they are perfect for a lazy weekend breakfast, or a quick breakfast-for-dinner night. Growing up my absolute favorite breakfast was known in my family as an “eggy on toasty” (an over-easy fried egg on a piece of toast), even better when made by my sweet Grampa.
