3 Homemade Dessert Recipes You’ll LOVE
If you’re like me, the hardest part of this No Spend Challenge is finding ways to still get some dessert. I’ve scavenged my cupboards and come up with three homemade dessert recipes for you to try (with ingredients you probably already have)!
This Sunday we couldn’t make it to our scheduled church visit. The drive was about three hours, but the roads were covered in sheets of ice, the snow was drifting, and the wind was howling. The conditions were just too bad to make it there. So, since we couldn’t make it, we decided it would be a great day for a lazy day at home (that almost never happens).
We slept in a little later than normal, woke up to the sun pouring through our windows and the wind knocking on our walls, put on our slippers, and padded into the kitchen for some breakfast. After searching through our cupboards and deciding that cereal, eggs, and leftovers just don’t sound that good – we decided to make chocolate chip muffins. Not just any chocolate chip muffins though: warm, melt-y, made-in-the-microwave-in-only-two-minutes muffins.
We cuddled into our robes and devoured our mug-muffins with no regard to the below zero temps outside. It was a beautiful morning.
And don’t worry, that’s one of the recipes I’m going to share with you today!

As some of you may know, we are in the midst of our first ever No Spend Challenge (NSC) which started January 1.
The short story is that my wife and I racked up a ton of debt (read how HERE) and want to pay it off as quickly as possible so that we can live our dream lives (read about our goals HERE). This challenge will help us learn about living frugal, saving money, and paying off our debt faster.
