I don't know when exactly the insatiable appetite for microwave mug meals came about, but it's here to stay. I've written about microwaveable mug desserts before, and Faith shared a totally delicious recipe of an oatmeal Nutella mug cake. These recipes are just so fast and delicious that it's hard to say no to cooking when it's so easy.

Like dessert, I think breakfast can often be a struggle if you're not a morning person. This is the especially true if you prefer something hot to eat in the morning but usually eat at work. With a little preparation the night before, however, you can have something quick and satisfying for breakfast thanks to a coffee mug and an office microwave.
