Tomatoes

So my nan has had a bumper crop of tomatoes this year, which means every family member has to take some haha! So we now have a bunch of lovely tomatoes, but they are really ripe so I need to use them asap. Just wondering what to do with them. I don't fancy making some sort of ketchup to be honest. I did think of making some mini quiches (bento friendly as well then!) as the whole family should eat that. But not sure what else I could do, quiche seems a bit... boring and samely, especially as mum has made a few over summer already. continue reading...

Help! Cooking in a microwave rice cooker!

My sister is traveling and has no stove or hot plate, so a microwave is her main way of cooking. She bought a microwave rice cooker similar to this one http://www.amazon.com/Maxi-Aids-Microwave-Rice-Cooker/dp/B00011R41Q?tag=... that was also advertised as making pasta, but her husband threw away all the packaging and instructions. I need any instructions for cooking rice and pasta in a microwave rice cooker.
Please help.
Thank you.
