Dear Barbara: My daughter-in-law read that you can make hardboiled eggs (in water) in the microwave. She put three eggs in water in a microwave safe container and all three exploded; why? — Donna from Lodi

Dear Donna: They exploded because steam builds up and when it has no place to go, it makes one! You need a hole so the steam can escape. Your daughter-in-law should try that again. This time have her poke a hole with a clean thumb tack or needle at one end of the egg. I think she will be happy with the results.
