Pumpkin Brownie Mug Cake

Pumpkin Brownie Mug Cake This eggless pumpkin brownie mug cake is super fudgy and chocolatey. It’s a great use for leftover pumpkin puree even when you’re tired of pumpkin-flavored desserts.

Food News Groupon has come to San Diego.  About a month ago, I was contacted by the people working at Groupon.  Everyday they have a deal of the day for the San Diego area.  The idea is to use the buying power of a group to get deals.  Except that you don't actually have to […]

Angels & Hearts Harajuku Creperie

Angels & Hearts Harajuku Creperie

Angels & Hearts Harajuku Creperie Angels & Hearts is a new dessert place that serves Harajuku-style crepes, a popular item in Japan. I noticed Angels & Hearts when I first visited Raki Raki because the two stores are actually connected, but the neon pink sign didn’t really appeal to me. Also, I don’t particularly care […]

Homemade beef noodle soup

Chocolate Espresso Mug Cake

Chocolate Espresso Mug Cake

Chocolate Espresso Mug Cake This rich chocolate mug cake has a touch of espresso, heightening the bittersweet tones of the chocolate and making this mug cake even more pleasurable. I’ve been tweaking my chocolate mug cake recipe and I’m in love with the newest version. It’s still really easy, but now with a deeper chocolate […]
