Using a technique from Barbara Kafka, author of the Microwave Gourmet (1998), I’ve perfected a small batch Béchamel sauce that is so easy, you won’t believe it. That’s right! You make the sauce in the microwave, and it’s as easy as pushing a few buttons. Including measuring and cooking, the whole Small Batch Béchamel takes under five minutes.Read full recipe.

What you're saying..
I started reading Desperation Dinners along about the time I became a "stay-at-home" mom (what an oxymoron!) and needed both intellectual stimulation and something different - ANYTHING different - for dinner.
In those early days, I cooked strictly by the rule book, no deviations. But over the years, you two have given me the confidence to try rotini instead of penne, to substitute, experiment, become confident. Thank you!!
Honestly - - all three of my DD books are stained, tattered, splattered, and loved. I've given DD as gifts to new moms, to new wives, and to young friends just out of college. Can't think of a more practical, useful present.
I appreciate all the recipes, but really like the bulk-cooking ideas.
Thanks for everything!!
