Its a great book for those with older kids, pre-teens and teens, and lazy cooks too. And those who live alone but don't want to mess up the whole kitchen to get a hot meal...You can get a pretty descent "home cooked" meal in a few minutes. Yes, I didn't say it was healthy but I have to say its healthier than fast food.
A few meals in it that caught my eye are, Salmon and Dill Orzo, Primavera Quinoa Mug, Southern Sausage and Grits (yes, in a few mins), jalapeno popper dip, french toast, cinnamon roll mug, peanut butter cookie, Irish Brown Bread..I could go on for days....most of these things are made from scratch.
If you want to read the reviews on this book on Amazon, its rated pretty nicely.
250 Best Meals in a Mug: Delicious Homemade Microwave Meals in Minutes
I just made the Salmon and Dill Orzo (using tiny stars pasta because I don't have orzo in my pantry), and the Cinnamon Roll Mug.
The Cinnamon Roll Mug is delicious...and the salmon and dill orzo was not too shabby either.
It's not restaurant quality but it's healthier than fast food.
If you're home alone a lot, have eternally hungry teenagers, or there's just two of you it's a nice quick way to have something, hot, fast.
