Brownie In A Mug

I am often perusing the interweb, I love kittehs and pugs and corgis and little baby goats. The Internet is so awesome. You can go to a farm/petting zoo without having to go to a farm/petting zoo. What, I’m scared of chickens. Them bitches are scary.
Anyway, I finally saw a food picture/recipe meme I could actually do. Not like those seven layers rainbow cakes or cupcakes turned into a baby panda. A MICROWAVE BROWNIE!!!!!
Being a massive dessert person, and having those ingredients in my pantry, I gave it the old college try. (I hate it when those recipes expect you to have like essence of newt in you kitchen, it’s like “yeah, I’ll pop down to Diagon Alley during my weekly shopping and grab some.” I hate life.)

Holy CRAPOLA this was so easy to make!!!! It worked too.

¼ cup flour
¼ sugar
2 tablespoons cocoa powder
3 tablespoons water
2 tablespoons olive oil
Pinch o salt
A mug to chuck everything into and then consume in once cooked. 

Mix dry stuff.
Mix wet stuff.
Stir like a mother until all melded together.
Zap that mother for 1 minute and 40 seconds. The recipe says on ‘high’ setting. But my microwave is close to 30 years old, I just put in time and am like “cook, bitch, cook!”

There you have it. A freaking brownie. Frigging dessert in a mug. This just amazes me. I hate it when you have to convince someone or even yourself to go and get dessert when you are craving warm chocolaty goodness and then you buy a frozen dessert and it takes 45 minutes to cook. NO. Not this time! 


  1. I've been wanting to try this for so long, I was worried it might be too good to be true!
    By the way, I love your blog so much I nominated you for a Liebster Award. You can find out more here xx

Hannah Gadsby and the “S” Word

I have a lot of issues with ‘s’ words. "Should", "success", "scared", "shame". They all, well, suck. They have baggage, a weight I can feel in my stomach, my soul.
I feel like my story is broken, wasting away like a faded receipt. Can I get a refund on my mid 20’s?

Two things to note here. 
One, I am unemployed and trying be a journalist. Two, I am a feminist and persistent.
