My 2 star rating is for the fact that the title indicates this to be a low carb book. As I scrolled thru the recipes, the omelet recipe calls for chickpea flour. Not low carb. The next few selections I saw indicated, torn bread of your preference. Bread = not low carb. (I know there are some out there, but I don't eat the chemically fake-low-carb bread, so unless I wanted to make L/C bread which defeats the purpose of a quick-mug meal... not low carb.), I thought I'd skip ahead to main courses. A mug meatball meal. Perfect. Except the ingredient list calls for frozen meatballs, which normally use bread, so not low carb. Confused I went back to check the title. Yep "Low-Carb" are the first two words. Still looking for a low-carb recipe, I saw Risotto. I've tried an awesome cauliflower risotto, and thought that would be great to have a LC risotto in a mug meal. Nope. Recipe calls for Arborio Rice.So while the recipes may taste great and as mug meals are probably time saving, I am giving 2 stars as I think the title is misleading. I returned for a refund as my preview found mostly carb recipes that don't work for me. Just thought I'd let you know in case you are living LC but looking for quick meal options, like I was -- and hoping this would fit the bill.
Cookbook recipes are usually meant for more than one person. But when you are alone, what do you do? Mug Meals can give you ideas on how to microwave a meal for one, and within minutes too.Enjoy this e-cookbook for the ideas as this book is not for novice cooks. An experienced cook will quickly see the errors. The author does not state the size mug needed for the recipes, and mug sizes can vary between 6 oz, 8 oz, to even 10 or more ounces.The author in the introduction says you can cook and eat a mug meal in less than 5 minutes, but then you read recipes that take 6 or 8 minutes of cooking, never mind the assembling and mixing. The author is also not consistent in writing proper cooking techniques either: the author states to cook a recipe 8 minutes and in the next step whisk every 30 seconds. So read the recipe through and adjust the instructions as needed to get a delicious meal!I downloaded this book for free for my honest opinion.
Being a mother of two very active young boys, we always need to find a way to create fast and easy meals. When this book was given to me to review, I got really excited as it would give us some great options for meals that work quick and easy to make.. since I still need quick and easy meals, I'm truly going to try some of the recipes in this book. My biggest disappointment is the fact that there are no pictures of the finished product in this book!! Cookbooks need pictures. It is essential that the reader gets to see exactly what the finished product looks like. I don't think I would ever buy a cookbook without pictures in it of the finished product...

115 pages. This book is all about cooking for one...hence the mug. If you believe that microwaving food irreparably alters the nutritional value of food, this book is not for you. If, however, you have decided to start making your own "fast" food - and that is a GOOD decision - this is a great place to begin. Whether you are an experienced cook or a beginner, you will find many recipes you can use. There is an excellent variety of recipes, made with mostly fresh, whole foods...which are the best choice for healthy eating. We wish everyone would switch from the drive-thru to this diet. The cost of health care in the Western world would go down and the incidence of health in the general population would rise.
An interesting way to use the leftovers and make a meal for one! There are some grammar issues, but notenough to mar the content of the book. I did see some recipes that had either metric or non metric measurein them and I would prefer the conversions to be there so that I do not have to convert a whole recipe becausethat will cause me not to use it. If you are writing a book it seems like using one measure or the other is thebest way to go. If you are using recipes from other sources I understand they may be different and you shoulddecide which way you are going to do the measure so that people are more likely to use the cookbook. If youdo not want to take the extra step of providing conversions then please put in a conversion table! I think thisbook is a great idea for those of us who have to cook for one. We have to use recipes for a minimum of fourservings usually so it is a great idea to be able to use these ingredients in a way that is easy and fast.Disclosure: I received this book free in exchange for my honest review.
I'm a single person living alone, and I'm always looking for new and innovative ideas for meals for one. If you are like me, the first thing you probably think of when you think of a 'meal in a mug' is those horrible instant noodles from university days. Well, this book defies all odds, and with nary an instant noodle in sight!How about...fluffy omelets or delicious quiche for breakfast....for lunch maybe you'd like pizza or oriental rice...and for dinner lasagna or maybe chicken in white wine. Yes, all cooked in a mug...in the microwave!But wait...there's more...soups, salads, even pickles and dips! (I'm starting to feel like one of those announcers from the late-night infommercials) "Wait, don't answer yet, just look at what else you get!" Cakes, muffins, breads, and...wait for it....cookies! Yes, you read that correctly...cookie in a mug! Yummmm!!!!If you purchase just one recipe book this year...this is the one! So simple and so very delicious!"Disclosure: I received this product for free in exchange for my honest unbiased review"
