From the Stinque Bachelor Kitchen
Selected reader reviews for “Microwave for One”, a 1987 cookbook by Sonia Allison.
It used to be that I got home from work and the only thing I’d want to put in my mouth was the cold barrel of my grandfather’s shotgun. Then I discovered Sonia Allison’s Chicken Tetrazzini, and now there are two things.
Chef in Trainng:
I’ve never been a culinary master, so to speak — Mary was always the chef in our family. Apparently her new husband David also knows his way around the kitchen.
I found this book on the kitchen counter of an elderly woman’s house after serving her foreclosure papers. I needed something to read because while we waited for the ambulance to arrive, she had the audacity to collapse before signing away the rights to her property.
until i stumbled upon this book, my diet consisted primarily of rocks, twigs, and raw meat. this was due to being brought up by wolves.
I have been abducted by aliens 16 times during the past 3½ years. After the probes and biopsies it is really comforting to open up the book I treasure most of all.
Benjamin L. Hamilton:
My favorite chapters were:
Chapter 1: Plugging in your Microwave and You
Chapter 4: How to Wait 3 Minutes
Chapter 11 [BONUS CHAPTER]: Eating with Cats

You really have to admire the application of some people. CReating all those fake accounts and then posting comments from them is pretty impressive. Almost as impressive as the ability to nuke popcorn.
