5 Minute Mug Cakes cookbook giveaway

I’ve got another giveaway in store for you fine folks! Kirbie of Kirbie’s Cravings has graciously given me a copy of her new book, 5 Minutes Mug Cakes, to giveaway on the blog today! 5 Minute Mug Cakes is the perfect book for when you really crave a little something sweet but don’t want to either a) leave the house or b) bake a whole cake.
