{Book Review} Mug Meals: Delicious Microwave Recipes by Dina Cheney

Mug Meals: Delicious Microwave Recipes
by Dina Cheney
Publisher: Taunton Press
Release:March 4th 2015
Genre: Non-Fiction- Adult: Cook-book
How I got it: NetGalley

The secret to fast and easy meals cooked from scratch is hiding in plain sight in your kitchen. The microwave oven is not just for reheating leftovers and making popcorn anymore. With pantry ingredients, a mug and a microwave, you can create a meal in minutes that rivals those cooked in the oven or on the stovetop. Mug MEALS! is the perfect solution for new cooks, busy families, singles, college students, teens, seniors or anyone who just wants a hot meal without all the cleanup.

Make a meal for anytime of day. Breakfast options include Lox and Bagel Strata, Double Berry French Toast; for lunch try Moroccan Pumpkin and Chickpea Stew, White Bean Gratin with Olives and Lemon or Double Carrot Soup. Dinner entrees include Chinese Chicken with Noodles and Black Bean Sauce, Classic Shepherd's Pie and Lasagna; dessert selections feature Mango Coconut Crumble, Molten Chocolate Cake with Truffle Filling, Peach and Cornbread Stuffing and more.

Review: As a working mom sometime I don't have time for a good meal, I end up grabbing some premade thingy from the freezer and then on to helping with homework or whatever needs my attention. Most nights I don't even get dinner with the family. The breakfasts are wonderful too, for when I don't have much time before work.
The fact that most meals in this book take only a few minutes to make is great. I love that I can have a real meal in no time when I get home after working 10 hours. I was super excited to see the shepherds pie recipe, as I'm the only one in my house that likes it, now I can make a serving just for me.
I enjoyed reading this book and look forward to using many of these recipes.
