Hello loves! It's me Kelsey, I'm still alive! I truly, madly, deeply want to get back into the whole blogging thing because it's such a great creative outlet for me and allows me to cook and bake as much as I want.... Jake you don't mind right?
I was having my time of the month cravings last night and really just wanted something yummy and I wanted it fast. I found a recipe from Five Heart Home for a Snickerdoodle mug cake that inspired me to create my own, so thanks for that!
Unfortunately my photos may not do this justice since they were taken on my iPhone but you just have to trust me on this one- I would eat it every night if I was allowed to. Even though it's made in the microwave I was shocked at how moist and cakey it came out! One important note is to make sure to use a big enough mug with straight edges for best cooking, though mine honestly did not rise very much.
I hope that I can continue making deliciousness but I am starting adult real person work life soon so we shall see. At least now I will have coworkers to bring yummy gifts to! I just moved to Denver about a month ago and Jake and I are loving it. The restaurants are delicious and all over the place, there's friendly people everywhere, and the mountains and outdoor activities are awesome! I don't think we will be leaving anytime soon.
