Microwave 2 Layer Chocolate Cake!

It's true!  I took a microwave mug brownie recipe (found here) and made a few changes to turn it into a delicious 2 layer 5 minute chocolate brownie/cake!  So what does that make it?  A Brake?  A Cownie?  I'll tell you what that makes it... DELICIOUS!  

I mean who doesn't need this recipe?  Ever forget someone's birthday?  Is company coming over at the last minute?  Did your kid bring home an unexpected A on a test?  Found out you're pregnant?  MAKE THIS CAKE!  Not that you really need a special reason though, right? ;-)

T-Shirt Take-In

It's happened to all of us.  You buy a regular T-shirt, take it home, and it turns out to be about 3 sizes too big.  There's also the ones that are so unflattering you might as well be wearing a cardboard box.  Am I right?  Well, there's hope!  All you need is:

  • Sewing Machine
  • Pins
  • Thread
  • Fabric Scissors
  • Dressmaker's Tracing Paper (optional)
  • A T-Shirt to alter
Ready to get started?  It's quick, less than an hour.  The process is also easy, it only takes the most basic of sewing skills.

Blogging 2014

My new year's resolution for 2014 is to consistently blog. That's right, more content here! I make all my own cleaning products (including laundry detergent and dishwasher detergent). I save money with homemade solutions, budget recipes, and use essential oils as a natural alternative... The list goes on! I'm consistently asked "How do you do it?" Good question! This blog will tell you. Who's ready to ring in the new year? I am!!!
