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

Water

 

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!

Try It Tuesday

Hello all! Its been a while since I’ve done a Try It. And today’s isn’t even from me! Its from my sister, Bridget. But I’ll tell ya; it looks DELICIOUS!

Bridget and I love Hungry Girl. She has a few of her books and we both get daily emails from HG. Hungry Girl’s recipes, for the most part, are pretty good. There are a few that are gag-worthy, but sometimes, HG hits healthy-eats gold!

Enter, the Flat Out Wrap pizza.

The wraps are high in fiber and low in calories and taste so yummy! One of HG’s favorite things to do is make pizzas out of these bad boys. So that’s exactly what Bridget did.

First she gathered her stuff:

She didn't put the Mini Wheats on her pizza. At least, I don't *think* she did...

She didn’t put the Mini Wheats on her pizza. At least, I don’t *think* she did…

1. Flat Out Wraps, original

2. Prego Pizza Sauce

3. Toppings:

~turkey sausage crumbles

~turkey pepperoni

~2% shredded cheese

~green bell pepper

~mushrooms

Then she baked the wraps for a while, just to make them a little crispy so they wouldn’t fall apart from the toppings. Then, she assembled her wraps:

Nom, nom, nom.

Nom, nom, nom.

Then she baked them at 350* for about 10 minutes. Then, she took out the wraps, sprinkled some cheese on them and baked them for another 5 minutes or so, until the cheese melted.

Hot n' Ready, without the annoying Roman guy.

Then, she ate! She said it was “so yummy” and that she’ll definitely be eating it again. It was healthy and tasty!
