5 minutes and and one dirty dish.  My kind of recipe.

4 T. Flour                                             3 T. Oil
4 T. Sugar                                            3 T. choc chips (opt)
2 T. Cocoa                                            splash vanilla extract
1 egg                                                   large coffee mug
3 T. Milk

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, vanilla extract and mix again.  Put mug in microwave and cook 3 minutes at 1000 watts.  Cake will rise over the top of the mug but don't be alarmed.  Allow to cool a little and tip out onto plate if desired.  Eat!

This is the most dangerous cake recipe in the world.  We're only 5 minutes away from a chocolate cake any time day nor night.

    I used to be a good cook.  I bravely tried at least 2 new recipes each week.  And it was good.  And then somewhere along the line, cooking became something I didn't do.  In fact, my husband would introduce me, "This is my wife.  She USED TO cook."  Now it's been long enough he doesn't remember the 'old' days. 
    The recipes I'm including here are family recipes, tried and true, or don't make a mess in the kitchen.  In my mind that is truly a measure of a good recipe.  Enjoy!
