To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Das Buch ist jeden Cent wert, allein die Fotos sind schon top - da möchte man am liebsten gleich probieren! Jede Rezeptseite hat links eine Aufstellung der Zutaten, und rechts die Zubereitungsmethode. Die Rezepte sind häufig klassische amerikanische Gerichte, aber eben nicht nur- es geht eigentlich einmal um den Globus. Auch der süße Teil wird nicht vernachlässigt - das liest sich so lecker, daß ich alles probieren werde.
Einen Stern habe ich abgezogen, weil es keine Nährwertangaben enthält, man muß sich die Kcal pro Portion selbst ausrechnen.
I think when you go into such detail (like using more than one mug, having to fix something IN A SAUCEPAN) for a MUG meal then you've missed the point of a mug meal entirely. The goal is to shove like three items in, nuke it, then continue studying. This author cares very much about taste, but too much for it to be a mug meal. If I'm going to put THAT much effort into something then I'm just going to cook. It's a fun idea for a real adult.
Most of the recipes require a long list of ingredients. For instance the Chile Verde has 15 ingredients. If I'm going to use that many ingredients, I would have to making a pot not a mug. I bought this book because the author had written an excellent and practical cookbooks on mug cakes
I really enjoy having as many mug meals recipes as I can afford to buy. I don't like to eat leftovers so creating mug meals and desserts is such a great thing to be able to do. Once you get the knowledge of how to do this, it is so easy for me to convert a recipe I like into a single mug serving. In just a few minutes time using my microwave, I can make a meal, a snack, or a delicious dessert anytime I want to eat. I love that Amazon provides a free Kindle app for me to use on my laptop and to store a lot of books online at Amazon Cloud Reader as well. I highly recommend that all seniors buy as many Mug Meals books as you can afford. Seniors are about 50% of the world's population.
Since I live alone with only a microwave at present, this book had me name on it! The recipes are well balanced and look yummy! I even bought a new set of large mugs. I am tired of eating junk food. These recipes will help me take better care of me. I am very pleased with my purchase.
I purchased the three most common mug cookbooks on Amazon and this one is by far my favorite. I like the pictures and I find the recipes consistently coming out good with very little adjustment. That being said, I am making these in a full kitchen with many ingredients to hand. I was looking for quick meals for my kids as we run out the door in the morning for school or for the 10 minutes between two after school activities. For these purposes, this book is awesome! For a college student with limited utensils and ingredients, I could see where it might be more challenging.
This book has a lot of pictures and fun ideas without being too long. I actually liked it well enough to buy five copies and share them as gifts. One of my favorite things is the comments the author makes at the beginning of each recipe. You can easily vary the recipes to suite your taste once you have tried them. The fact that they can be single servings or made for two people means that you don't have to waste much food to find out what you would do differently. I appreciate the fact that this author was willing to share her ideas and recipes.
I just couldn't put this book down. I have spent the entire day making several of the recipes. They are delicious and very affordable. I have had a wonderful time making lunch and dinner with some cake. I know I will be using these recipes a great deal.
A fun new way to cook for us. The breakfast menus are what we've done the most and the biscuits and gravy are great. We never go out to restaurants any more and cook at home, from scratch, for 99% of our meals. We had seen these types of cookbooks and ignored them for years. Now we're looking for another one!
