Here’s good news for all the ‘Cantaloupe Haters’ like me.. 🙂 Yeah!! You read it right…I meant Cantaloupe a.k.a Muskmelon ‘haters’. You must be wondering if I have gone crazy…. Definitely Not. I am just overjoyed by the fact that I found a way to consume the Cantaloupe lyingon my countertop

It was the recipe by Linda K from Allrecipesthat came to my rescue. I was drawn to this recipe as it was mentioned that it doesn’t taste a bit like cantaloupe. Yippee!!! Icouldn’task for more. I just got into action right away. Truth be told, I didn’t have the patience to wait for an hour of baking….so took the shorter microwave way. After my first bite I was thanking my stars for deciding to try this recipe. Now all I had to do was for my boys to give their verdict. As expected, it was a thumbs up!! Boy!! Am I happy??? You bet 😀

    Hey,
    This is interesting and I loved the fact that it can be done in a microwave too as my oven is on strike for a couple of days..Will it turn out as good as we bake it? I am not sure..Can you provide the details for the same ( u have already mentioned but …detailed….)

  4. Mareena Jerrish says:

    Well..Good question..This is the first time I tried and I microwaved it. So i wouldnt be able to comment on whether baking is better or not. I can confidently say the microwaved version was really good. I microwaved for 7 minutes and checked with a skewer. I let it rest in the oven till it cooled before cutting it. If you have any more doubts, feel free to ask.. 🙂
