    I've got a book somewhere in storage called "A Man, A Can & A Microwave" and it was full of recipes for non cooking men that only required them to open a few ingredients and mix and microwave. Yes There were some good recipes in that book. Wish I had it now. 

     

    I'll look around and see what I can find for sweet treats.
