Microwave Etiquette

Ahh, the mighty sweet sound of last night’s leftovers frying away in a dielectric high-frequency box.  It can either be a thing of beauty... or, it can be what nightmares are made of.  Before you fire up that company microwave and wonder, “is chicken supposed to be making popping noises like that?”, or, “I wonder... how long before this thing explodes and covers the inside panel”, or, “wait, can you - or can’t you - cook a raw egg in the microwave?”, before you test any of those questions, you need to know some simple office microwave etiquette rules!

Microwave Meal Matchup #1 - Beef Pot Roast

Microwave Meal Matchup #1 - Beef Pot Roast

WeightWatchers | Home Style Beef Pot Roast vs. Healthy Choice | Beef Merlot                              WeightWatchers | Smart OnesHome Style Beef Pot Roast While taking this out of the package, the first thing that crossed my mind was that there was no way I wouldn't be hitting the vending machine 45 minutes after eating it. Rather unimpressive...  The preparation with the WeightWatchers meal is a bit aggravating as you have to cook it for 4 minutes, peel back the plastic, stir it, then cook it for another minute.

Wholesome Snacking

Wholesome Snacking

You’re sitting in the office and suddenly you hear a loud grumble.

We've all been there, that point in the day where you just need a little sustenance to give yourself the needed energy and your tummy the satisfaction to move forward through the day.

5 Types of Potluck Contributors

It's Superbowl Weekend, Ya'll Superbowl weekend means that your office undoubtedly had some type of community cooking event/party/dealio-thing going on this week. If your office did something really cool, like an epic chili cookoff, or you had the "don't worry about it because the company is totally going to buy mountains of food and you don't have to do anything but stuff your face all day," then, well, the rest of us don't like you very much right now.  But we'll get over it... eventually. For most of us, our offices had some type of "everyone pitch in and bring something" event...
