There’s rarely time in the mornings to have a delicious breakfast, and there’s definitely never time to wash a bunch of pots and pans before hurrying out the door to school, work, and the day’s errands. Rather than turn to boring granola bars or resign yourself to dishes “soaking” in the sink all day, turn to an easy, nearly-mess-free pairing: a mug, and a microwave! That’s right, Gemma’s Bigger Bolder Baking is back with more microwave mug meals, and this time, she’s going breakfast. Just look at the incredible things she’s creating!
