Yesterday I did that thing our mothers always tell us not to do. I made myself a snack before supper. I was also craving my comfort food - chocolate. So, I made myself an individual serving of chocolate cake using the Five Minute Mug Chocolate Cake recipe that you can find HERE.
The real beauty of this recipe is that it dirties almost no dishes. It can be mixed in the mug you cook and eat from. I did mix it in a mixing bowl yesterday so I had three items to wash up
1. The mixing bowl
2. The measuring scoop
3. The mug
I thought it might be a good time to share one of my favorite kitchen tools. I learned about it HERE from Susan at Between Naps On The Porch.
I liked the look of Susan's so well that I not only ordered one for myself, but also got one for my mother, my mother-in-law, and my four daughters! It works just as well as shown in the promotional video about it HERE. I ordered them HERE from Sierra Trading Post.
One of the features which is not mentioned in the video is the magnet that is on the bottom of the scoop. That is a handy feature if I wanted to keep it here on the fridge, I guess.
However, it wasn't so handy when it stuck to my sink and I had a hard time pulling it off. (No, I didn't rush for the camera and reveal my dirty dishwater and all, I re-inacted it here.)
Note: I am not being paid to advertise this product. I just really like it and wanted to share!
