Two recipes and one Brownie Bake-Off to remember!

How to perfectly cook your leftovers in 10 minutes or less!

All you need is your trusty microwave steamer, some veggies (3-Minute Carrot Hack) and your leftover protein from the night before.

First, steam your veggies.

While this is happening, slice your protein.

Once your veggies are done remove them from the steamer, throw your protein in and close the lid.  DO NOT PUT IN MICROWAVE.
