    Golly-gee, it’s a geophyte!

    This is an easy term with which to come to grips. “Geo-” of course means “earth” and “phyton-“ means “plant.” OK, an earth-plant — but actually in the sense of its having some sort of subterranean structure from which it can keep coming back, at least for a few seasons.

    Microwave ovens are an essential part of most kitchens these days. Yet, for some, they are just expensive coffee warmers, leftover reheaters and popcorn poppers. When microwaves first came out in the 1970s a lot of folks were giving microwave cooking classes. I was one of them.

But are you using your microwave to it greatest potential?
