As kids, my sister and I would come home from school and “make” nachos, which basically consisted of throwing plain Doritos onto a plate before smothering them with cheddar cheese.
As the microwave in our avocado green kitchen whirled away, those old-school Doritos (what ever happened to them, anyway?) would get soft in places as the cheese surrounded every nook of that salty goodness. Add a Coke and who needs dinner?

I still love melted cheese but wouldn’t you know it…for the life of me I cannot make a grilled cheese sandwich. I can assemble it just fine but you see what happened. That burnt toast and the cheese which is, oddly, not melted? That about sums up every grilled cheese sandwich I’ve ever made.
Maybe I need to return to those girlhood nachos. Wait. Can you burn something in the microwave…?
