cake in a cup?

I don't know if I should be excited or a little worried that this recipe is now in my repertoire

4 tablespoons flour

4 tablespoons sugar

2 tablespoons cocoa

1 egg

3 tablespoons milk

3 tablespoons oil

3 tablespoons chocolate chips (optional)

A small splash of vanilla extract

1 large coffee mug (MicroSafe)

Add dry ingredients to mug, and mix well.
Add the egg and mix thoroughly.
Pour in the milk and oil and mix well..
Add the chocolate chips (if using) and vanilla extract, and mix again. Put your mug in the microwave and cook for 3 minutes at 1000 watts

I added a small pinch of salt and reduced the oil to 2 tablespoons... you know, to make myself feel a little better about eating this for lunch today.

I have to be honest, it was a tad rubbery, but what do you expect from microwave cooking and 5 minutes?

pics for the g & g

thought I'd post some favorite pictures from the past few weeks - of course 98% for the grandparents. I fully recognize that everyone thinks their kids are the cutest, and I admit I'm no different. perhaps grandparents are even more enamored, if that's possible. here's the cutest kid on earth (at least to me, the wife, and g & g)...

2 little trees

2 little tree onsies for friends with babies. The green one was supposed to go to baby Lauren 4 months ago for her 6 month b-day, oops! The pink one is for baby Lucy (soon to be born). I got the idea from the cutest bedding at Pottery Barn Kids. I like them both but I think the green one looks more like a tree.
I think they turned out really fun. If you're expecting a baby soon don't be surprised to see one in a gift from me.

Oh, and a Lazy Day Skirt for June I made some time ago. Super cute and super easy. You just have to come up with your own pattern for the undies.
