Mug Cake

Hey ladies! I hope everyone has had a great week so far. I got totally snowed in last weekend! I have absolutely no tread on my tires and my alignment is way off, so I was not driving anywhere. That's what boyfriends with new cars are for! I've known that I need new tires for a few weeks now, but knowing I have to pay over $400 for them, I keep putting it off. It is also so cold outside, I swear I can never get warm. Every night I crave watching a movie under a big warm blanket with fuzzy socks on, eating or drinking something warm. I have been hearing a lot about something called a "mug cake". These are cakes that are cooked in the microwave in a mug! Genius! Not only is it a quick fix, it is a delicious and cute fix! Why have I never heard of these?! Oh well, I'll just have to make a bunch to make up for lost time! Let me know what you think!
