Three Things Thursday || 1

Hello everyone! I am starting a new weekly post called Three Things Thursday, which is simply three neat things I found that week that made me smile or inspired me in some way.. I firmly believe that it’s the little things that make life so enjoyable, and if you don’t take the time to appreciate the little things, you are going to miss out on quite a bit of what life has to offer. So, I hope you enjoy this new post and I hope you, too find the time to enjoy the little joys of life :)

This mug is adorable. It makes me want to hug MY hubskis!

Coffee Cake in a Cup

I found this awesome article from Prudent Baby… I must try soon!

Well, first you’ll need a cup. If you want it to puff up over the top of the cup, use a small one. Or if you want to dig into the cup, use a big one. It matters not.
Add a tablespoon of butter.
Soften it in the microwave for 10-15 seconds. Don’t melt, just soften.
Stir in 2 tablespoons of sugar until it’s fluffy and creamy, maybe 30 seconds.
Now you can add some egg. you don’t have to, but without egg it’s more crumbly and less cake-y. You can do a whole egg, but I like to break the egg into a ramekin and stir it up, then split it between two cups of coffee cake, or just use half for one coffee cake. But really, play it by ear. Try it out and see what tastes best to you.
Then stir in 2 tablespoons of sour cream and a few drops of vanilla. We’re talking droplets here, don’t add too much.
Stir in 1/4 cup of flour and 1/8 teaspoon baking powder.
If you want some crumb topping (you know you do), in a separate ramekin or bowl add 1 tablespoon butter, 2 tablespoons flour, 1 tablespoon of brown sugar, and 1 teaspoon of cinnamon.
Smoosh it together with your fingers for a few.
Now back to your cup. Your ingredients are all mixed up, so…
Add the crumb topping mixture to the cup…
Then microwave it. Start with 1 minute, then do 10 seconds more until it’s done to your liking. For my microwave, a minute 20 seconds does it perfectly.
It will be REALLY HOT when you take it out of the microwave.
Let it cool down for a few seconds, then dig in.

Valentine’s Day Treats


This year for Valentine’s Day I decided to bake treats for my boyfriend, because he doesn’t believe in girls getting guys gifts (quite a bit of alliteration there!) for Valentine’s Day. I didn’t think I could just do nothing, so this is what I made…








These are brownies made from scratch using a recipe by Beantown Baker. You can see the recipe I used by clicking hereI cheated and used store-bought cream cheese frosting, but boy were they delicious!
