Food in Mugs

mug-with-tagline

I hate baking.  And not just because my last name was Crocker.  That means I should love baking, right?

I also hate sweets.  Which should mean I weigh a whole heck of a lot less than I do.  But I don’t.

So when my kids ask for a dessert, I break out one of my mug recipes.  That way, they can get which ever dessert they want and I don’t have to hear any complaining about why they didn’t get to pick this time.  Mug recipes also prevent the lingering of desserts in the pantry.  And I know a whole lot of Moms who need to not have that sort of thing lingering around.

I got tired of telling my girls how to make their favorite mug recipe, so I put it on a mug for them so they always have the recipe handy.  All they do is mix in the ingredients on the mug and microwave for 75 seconds.  (where to buy a mug)

Now if only I could get them to clean up after themselves.

Here are a few of my favorite mug recipes

mac-and-cheese-copyToday’s half assed mom tip is How to reheat leftover mac and cheese without ending up with a rubbery lump of crap no kid will eat.

The secret?  Milk.  Pour some milk in the bottom of the pan, warm it up and dump in your congealed lump of leftover mac and cheese.  As the milk warms up the mac and cheese, it will separate and return to it’s original state.  Voila!  Macaroni and Cheese that’s as good as they day you made it.

Don’t half ass this even more and try to do it in the microwave!  Yuck.  Just clean the damn pan.
