“Draw us a recipe.” That’s the brief we sent to a slew of our favorite comic artists earlier this year; each week, we’re thrilled to present what they sent back. They’re fantastic, beautiful, hilarious, thoughtful, informative, and often all of the above — and they prove that a recipe doesn’t just have to be words on paper.

This week’s comic is the second Recipe Comix foray of Laura Park. Previously, she explained to us how to Slap It in a Pan (where “it” is garlic, greens, and an egg); today, a similarly straightforward take on cooking: Shove It in a Mug, a sweet, hearty apple-based pie-in-a-cup that’s perfect for a chilly winter evening — just keep an eye out for pie-stealing hobos.
