As I get busier and busier with life and kids (you know how it is), I become more partial to having mixes on hand.

I guess that’s the downfall of having a recipe that’s so easy to remember. 1/4 cup flour, 1/4 cup brown sugar, 2T. each of cocoa, oil, and milk. Mix together and zap it for a minute. Voila!
