Fast and Easy Microwave Mug Recipes

When it comes to modern mamahood, the microwave has been a lifesaver when it comes to warming up leftovers (or let's be real, busy weeknight mac-n-cheese). 


Since apparently there is a "national day" for everything, December 6th is National Microwave Oven Day, and we want you to be prepared, because it's kind of life-changing what you can actually whip-up in a microwave. So, we're celebrating with our favorite, easy microwave recipes perfect for busy weeknights! While we're most definitely advocates for fresh, whole foods and cooking, we all know the microwave is a lifesaver, whether you're a stay-at-home-mom or working mama. So, we hope you find some comfort in cooking these comfort-foods-turned-mug-dishes that can help make your busy, hectic life as a parent a little easier. 


So, sweet Mama, meet a few of our fav mug recipes below:
