Microwave Buttermilk Pancakes

Everyone always tells you: living in a dorm in college is a huge change from living at home. And on one hand you believe them– you know you’re going to have a lot less room to store your clothing, snacks, and countless college textbooks. But on the other hand, you think to yourself: how bad…

Chocolate Lava Cake in a Mug

I stumbled across the idea for this recipe by accident. For graduation this year, one of my friends gave me a cookbook for recipes that you can make in a mug. Flipping through it, we found a recipe for a Fondant au Chocolat (aka French Chocolate Lava Cake). Deciding to give it a go, we…

The Easiest Hot Cocoa Mug Cake You’ll Ever Make

However, every once in a while, I’ll find…

Banana Nut Muffin in a Mug
