Microwaved Chocolate: Hershey’s & M&M’s

When I’m craving chocolate I love to have Hershey’s Milk Chocolate or Almond bars (sometime both at once) or M&M’s.I especially love it when its melting!
I usually microwave the chocolate of a full minute. It just depends on your microwave how long to go.
I prefer my Hershey bars to melt to the point that when I put my spoon in it its almost like a soup. Place on dish and melt away!
As for the M&M’s, the shell cracks and the inside melts. Take a handful and pop in your mouth. You can microwave it in the bag, just tear off the top or you can place it on a dish. Either way works. Melts in your mouth, not on your hands!

Enjoy!!!!!!!!!! I know I do!!!!

http://www.niceneasy.gr/
RECIPES:

Aegean Inspired Calamari with Lentils

Ingredients:
Calamari, cut into rings (1 kg)
Lentils, boiled (300 g)
1 onion, chopped (medium size)
Extra Virgin Olive Oil (100 ml)
White Wine (100 ml)
Balsamic Vinegar (50 ml)
Salt
Pepper

Directions:
Sauté calamari in a hot frying pan, using 50 ml extra virgin olive oil for 2-3 minutes and drizzle with wine. Wait approx. 2 minutes until the fluids are absorbed and then remove the calamari from the pan. In a separate frying pan sauté the chopped onion with lentils, using 50 ml extra virgin olive oil, until onions are soft. Drizzle with balsamic vinegar and add salt and pepper. Serve the calamari on the lentils.

Farm To Table Green Salad

Ingredients:
Variety of Salad Greens (lettuce, iceberg, radicchio, endive, kale or greens of your choice, 500 g)
Cherry tomatoes (150 g)
Feta Cheese (200 g)
Pistachios (100 ml)
Pita bread (2 pieces, chopped)
Extra Virgin Olive Oil (100 ml)
Balsamic Vinegar (100 ml)

Directions:
Discard all bruised and discolored leaves. Rinse and dry all greens thoroughly to give it a crisp and fresh taste. Mix salad greens evenly then add all the ingredients and mix well. The secret to a perfectly tossed salad is simple: use your washed hands.
