There is an urban myth. About an American department store that had a café with great cookies. Allegedly. A women managed to get her hands on the recipe and loaded it to the World Wide Web. This is the recipe. Allegedly. In any case, it's been my family's go-to choc chip cookie recipe for well over 20 years (wowser, I'm old). Granted, we've made modifications but this ain't your standard (greasy) Subway cookie, though it's not dry. It's certainly not home-made tasting. Except it is. It's so wholesome, it's almost like eating porridge. Almost.
It's no secret in our household that I deem fruit-heavy 'desserts'to be...breakfast. Oats...fruit...the lack of chocolate. So, when I met my husband, Joe, and he revealed he 'probably prefers apple crumble over chocolate cake', (!??!?!?!) I very much reconsidered our relationship. It was either him going (and taking his misplaced choice for no. 1 dessert with him), or I was to learn to love it and accept Joe's love of breakfast as a post-dinner treat. I truly hope you enjoy this apple crumble recipe more than I do. Because if I can love it and not love apple crumble, and you are a crumble lover, you're in for a real treat.
My Mug Cake recipe is still one of the most-visited pages on my site. Not surprised. So, since we all share a mutual love of excellent food (and due to impending Christmas) I'm sharing my go-to gingerbread recipe! It's sweet but not too sweet, it's spicy but not overpowering. And while I can't guarantee it'll look pretty, I can assure you it tastes DI-VINE.

Fishing through your handbag to find your wallet, then thumbing through ALL the cards you’ve collected over the years with sweaty palms. The "I’m sorrrryyyyy”, you manage to whimper. The glares of half a dozen customers staring at your back.

Here it is, the best mug cake recipe you'll ever find. I shared this on Instagram months ago and I still get requests for the recipe. It’s portion-controlled, you can cook it in the microwave and it’s done in under 3 minutes. Handy! ALSO, it’s vegan-friendly - no eggs. This may have been a winter staple in my house this year. ISO got me goooooood.
