Flourless Dark Chocolate Mug Cake is a really simple, really delicious recipe made in the microwave using ingredients you probably already have in your pantry!
The thing about being married to someone for a dozen or so years and having a slew of kids is that after a while, your idea of a great night shifts. A lot. Fifteen years ago at the start of our relationship, a great date would be an afternoon at the beach followed by a lazy early evening nap, topped off with dinner and dancing at a bar or club. Ten years ago, maybe an expensive meal after work followed by a late movie. Now? Sharing a bag of popcorn or dessert on the couch while binging on Netflix after the kids are asleep.
This isn't a complaint. I mean, I guess I wouldn't mind a kid-free day at the beach here and there, but mostly I'm just happy we're still able to make time for one another and enjoy things as a couple. If the kids are in bed at a reasonable hour, I like to make a special meal or dessert for just us. And this Flourless Dark Chocolate Mug Cake for Two is a personal favorite.
