Cooking in Space, Explained by the Unofficial ISS Chef

This is Sandra Magnus. She's an astronaut who likes to cook. And here she's holding the space snacks for Superbowl Sunday.
Magnus has to make do with preparing mixing meals in plastic bags and cooking ingredients over low heat burners (simple sauteed garlic and onions is a several hour venture on ISS burners that operate on 30-minute safety timers).
Her flavors consist of spicing up standard space rations with fresh ingredients brought on board by new crewmates. Her Superbowl spinach dip, for instance, is a combination of rehydrated cream of mushroom soup, canned Russian cheese and creamed spinach. But as comforting as a good meal can be, I can't imagine being stuck in the ISS without any fresh air only to look over at Magnus, who is cooking pungent aromatics with a smile.
