Mine is probably a toss-up between English Breakfast Tea (Twinings) and Darjeeling Tea. However, I also enjoy tea friends have brought from India and Nepal. Ummm. Comments are open… what’s your favorite tea? And what do you like to munch on with it?
This is a recipe I got in 1981 from my a friend of my parents, who was an agronomy researcher and professor at Kansas State University. His name was Elmer Heyne (deceased).

We had two very exciting, heart-grabbing moments as we drove near Philmont Scout Ranch one evening. Darkness was rapidly falling, and suddenly we saw a dog? a fox? no, a coyote run across the highway right in front of us! Thankfully, the beautiful animal successfully crossed the road. We caught it in our headlights and marvelled at our close experience. A little later, a small mule deer darted in front of us, paused, then continued across the road. The deer incident came soon after the coyote crossing and I was left shaking for some time! While the coyote crossed in front of us, and it was close, I was not shaken like I was with the deer! I think it was the fact that the deer paused and looked toward us that caused my heart to jump! I have heard that deer will become frozen in a car’s headlights and not move out of the way. I was so afraid that that was what was happening! Again, thankfully, it was not.
I began this blog in 2004! That’s hard to believe!! Here’s a good recipe I posted in November, 2004. You might enjoy it while you’re watching football games or having family and friends over for a get-together. It’s a pizza dough recipe easy to make at home, so you can have freshly made-from-scratch pizza anytime you want it! I hope you will enjoy it. )
This is an internet email recipe I received and then tweaked. It needs more real-time testing, so let me know what you think — what’s it need? How did it work for you? This would be a good take-to-work cake if you mix the dry and wet ingredients separately, then mix them just before baking in the office microwave!
This reminds me of when we used to make a cake in small coffee cans. I think you can put an 8×8 cake into 2 coffee cans. Hmm. I’ll have to check on that! Cans bake in a regular oven, though, not the microwave!
Jesse and I made this today for his 4th birthday! Mmmm.
In a microwave-safe coffee mug, mix together:
4 Tbsp flour (not self-rising)
4 Tbsp sugar
2 Tbsp baking cocoa powder
dash of salt
Add & mix well:
1 small egg
Add & mix well:
3 Tbsp milk
3 Tbsp oil
small splash of vanilla extract
Stir in (optional):
3 Tbsp chocolate chips /or/
3 Tbsp chopped nuts
Cook in microwave on HIGH (1,000 W) for 5 minutes, or until cake tester comes out clean. The cake will rise over the top of the mug, but it’s OK.
Allow to cool a little, then tip out and ice if desired.
EAT!! (serves 2 or 3 if you want to share) I sliced it and iced the slices like cookies!
