A friend of mine that lives out of state has been telling me about today’s Try It for a few weeks now. But, for the longest time, I could not find them ANYWHERE locally. Then, the other day, SUCCESS!



Duncan Hines new Perfect Size for 1 line has eighteen different flavors from decadent to fruity and even a few for the morning!

Everything you need comes in the handy dandy little pouch, all you have to do is choose a mug! I think I chose well:



Pour in the pouch, add 3 tablespoons water (or milk!) and mix.



Then, microwave for 1 minute, 10 seconds. Let it cool and enjoy!



OH. EM. GEE, y’all. I really wanted to take a picture of it once it was on my fork (because the above picture does NOT do it justice) but I seriously couldn’t stop eating it to snap a pic! It was SO. FREAKING. GOOD. Its a little high on the calorie count (300 to be exact!) so this will be a cheat day/I-have-calories-to-spare-and-its-8pm type of treat for me, but DAAAANNNGGGG! So delicious!

Try It Tuesday

Happy Tuesday, peeps!

We’re only 5 days into November and I’m sure you can already taste the turkey you’re going to bury your face in in a matter of weeks!

If you’re like me, you like to take it easy the first few weeks of November so on Thanksgiving, you can gorge like Kevin and Pam at Ultra Feast. But, if you’re also like me, you find it hard to have self-control when it comes to sweets and anything chocolate. So on those nights when you “just gotta have something” I have found what you’re looking for!

I get Hungry Girl emails all the time and she has a crazy truckload of recipes for desserts. One of her staples is called “Cake Mugs”. These are single serving cakes in a mug made with (typically) less than 5 ingredients!


My sister found one the other day and we tried it! It was DELISH!


Here’s what you need:

I box Angel Food Cake Mix

1 Box Chocolate Cake Mix



Simple recipes are the BEST!

Simple recipes are the BEST!

That’s it! That’s seriously all you need! Well, you’ll need mugs and a microwave of course, but that goes without saying.

Here’s what to do:

Mix the 2 cake mixes together in a gallon zip-lock bag.

Take 3 tablespoons cake mix; mix with 2 tablespoons water in a microwave-safe mug.

Bake, bake, bake a cake! Stir that baby with a garden rake!

Microwave for 1 minute. Then, let it set for about a minute or two and enjoy!

So light and fluffy!

So light and fluffy!

We sprinkled mini chocolate chips on ours—so tasty! You can choose any cake mix you want to, BTW. It doesn’t have to be chocolate. But, I will say that chocolate is the BEST!
