I brought my Lavender plants in during winter and the ones out in the kitchen by the microwave died.
I noticed the food taste ickier too just like FissionSurplus said.
Now I slow cook or pan cook my stuff mostly.
I like wild rice with low sodium chicken or vegetable broth -- slow cook it (takes hours) but wild rice taste so good. Then when the rice is cooked,
not mushy, will still be a little crisp, add broccoli, chopped up carrots, ham or chicken and a can of cream of mushroom soup or other flavoring.
Slow cookers are nice for several reasons, you don't have to be a great cook to create some really good meals. You pour in the liquid and rice and

I also add in at the end a package of Uncle Ben's Ready Rice either Long Grain & Wild with 23 herbs and seasonings (never give you enough Wild Rice)
or Uncle Ben's Butter and Garlic.
You can also add in a jar of Tostito's medium Salsa Con Queso (jar cheese that is really yummy with broccoli and ham)

samlf3rd's response was fantastic, I'm pretty much doing what he/she is doing and really feel better.
