"Our teacher challenged our class to use the microwave for more than defrosting and reheating leftovers," write Michael Saunders and Andy Lyness of West Delaware Middle School in Manchester, Iowa. "This crispy jelly roll is one of our favorite microwave recipes."
"These delicious muffins are loaded with goodies," writes Elaine Kauffman of Tofield, Alberta. "I got the recipe from our pastor's wife. We like them for Sunday breakfast, but it's a good idea to double the recipe and keep some in the freezer for brown-bag lunches during the week."

I had to have a quick fundraiser at school for a student organization, so I made these brownie pops. The kids loved them and I sold over 200 hundred in an afternoon. For s'mores brownie pops, add crushed graham crackers to the dipped chocolate. —Jamie Franklin, Murtaugh, Idaho
