How to Cook a Turkey in the Microwave

mashable.com — Although microwaving a turkey isn't the ideal way to cook poultry, the USDA approves of the cooking method. It cooks quickly and is extremely easy. Disasters happen, ovens break and some people don't have the luxury of owning an oven (college students, we're looking at you,) so in a pinch, a microwave can actually save the day and deliver a turkey that is surprisingly edible.
