5 Mug Cake Recipes You Absolutely Have To Try

When you want a quick dessert, mug cakes are the answer!

I am very much a dessert person (a name that Claire Saffitz likes to call herself - and her cookbook too). But often, I don't have the time to create entire cakes, cookies, or crumbles, and especially not during a semester. So when there's times I really feel like baking something (and eating something delicious), I'll whip up some mini cakes and cookies - in microwaved form of course. Don't get me wrong, these are no replacements for the oven-baked versions. But they are great for a dessert that comes together in a quick pinch.

Heart on a Wet Sleeve

No one prepares you for the honeymoon phase wearing off

Heart on a Wet Sleeve

Let's start off with the simple fact that God made everyone differently. That statement could not be more evident. We try to embrace our differences and set ourselves apart from the rest of the world. What that doesn't prepare us for is when we yearn for a characteristic of someone else. For example, have you ever met someone who can experience this great heart ache and hardly shed a tear? This person just had their heart ripped out and they find a way to carry themselves through it with great composure. Well, not all of us have that desirable trait. Some of us wear our hearts on our wet sleeves. When a person has their heart on their sleeve, it can be viewed as a good thing, that the individual isn't shallow. However,
