Food in Mugs


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

Chocolate Chip Mug Cookie


Apple Pie Mug Cake

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