I found a cookbook this week-end at a tag sale--Microwave Diet Cookery, Low Calorie Menus for All Seasons, published in 1988.

There's so much in it I want to try out, but unfortunately, it doesn't state anywhere what the microwave wattage was that the recipes were developed for. I do have Barbara Kafka's "Microwave Gourmet", published in 1987, where the recipes are for a 700-watt oven. And, I have a conversion chart from 700 watts to 1200 watts, which is what my oven is. I've used this chart for Kafka's recipes, converting them for my 1200-watt oven.

I'm wondering if I may take it for granted the 1988 Microwave Diet cookbook's recipes are for a 700-watt oven too, and just go ahead and use my conversion chart to convert recipes from 700 watts to 1200 watts. Does anyone have any ideas on this?

Thanks,
