Nuke Your Boston Cream Pie
Perhaps you're just a lukewarm fan of the Pats. You dig Plymouth Rock, the Boston Tea Party sounded like a hoot and Sam Adams is reliably drinkable. But you're not a die-hard. Maybe you're just rooting against the Giants. Rather than going for a big shebang recipe, embrace your inner fair-weathered fan. Play it cool with a microwavable Boston Cream Pie. Absolutely no ovens involved.
Cookbook Wiki, an open source cookbook that's not actually affiliated with the real Wikipedia one, has a recipe speaking to this. After experimenting with the oven-free concept the other night, some of us discovered that microwaved eggs can yield weirdness. Burping may ensue, but hopefully not salmonella poisoning.
