Praise for Mug Meals

"[Mug Meals] is great for anyone who is busy, looking to add a little fun to their kitchen or cooking with limited access to a full kitchen. College students headed back to the dorms might find it especially useful for quick meals during late-night study sessions." —Portland Press Herald -
