Microwave Cooking Recipes

The Department of Family & Consumer Sciences’ MS Dietetics & Combined Dietetics Internship Program includes a clinical rotation week in the Sam Houston Food Pantry. Members of the 2019 student body worked with the College of Health Sciences to produce “Microwave Cooking Demonstrations” using ingredients found at the food pantry. Recipes are available at the Food Pantry during distribution days.
