Microwave magic with The Fresh Expert

We'll do Microwave Magic! The microwave often gets a bad reputation, but when you use quality containers you can seriously do magic.

Steaming is one of the healthiest ways to prepare your food -  it retains nutrients, fatty acids and vitamins while preserving color, texture and flavor.  The Fresh Expert, Corinne Brown, stopped by WBTV to share two creations.

In the SmartSteamer: (which was featured on Dr. OZ)
