Like most of my friends, I do not have family close by. This doesn’t allow for the (extended family) Sunday family dinner. So although I think of everyone daily, it can be challenging letting everyone know how much you love them. To the rescue, the care package!
When I first started this blog, I did focus a lot on care packages. I was making and sharing with you some rice crispy treat recipes along with how to make your own chai and cappuccinos (you can find links to these posts on my recipe page). One recipe I was experimenting with was “cake in a mug”. I was trying to figure out how to make a mix that I could send to my kids (in college) so that all they would have to do is add water and cook it in the microwave oven (they have on in their dorm rooms). I even went out and purchased some powdered egg whites. There were many experiments (ask my youngest), but nothing worked like I wanted it to.
Well, it’s a few months later and who is my superhero? Pinterest! My daughter pinned Aunt Betty’s 1-2-3 Cake from The Hidden Pantry. You know what, it really works! I’m putting together some care packages and I am going to include this. Here’s what I did.
