Oreos and Chocolate in a Cupcake can only mean that cupcake is going to be the most popular cupcake in the history of cupcakes. Am I Right or am I Right? 😉

I’m lately obsessed with finding simple tweaks that could change the way we look at food! Take this chocolate cake for example. Can you tell that this is nothing but a simple chocolate sponge cake? Doesn’t the addition of a bit of powdered sugar just take it up a notch?

A somewhat similar experiment led to the discovery of my Oreo Owl Cupcake. Bake dark chocolate cupcakes. Dip them in chocolate ganache. Break off some Oreo cookies and stick them onto the cupcake. Dip M&M / Gems / similar round candies in chocolate ganache and place them for eyes. Congratulations. You just made an Oreo Owl Cupcake – or a few dozen of them! (more…)

❤️  Breakfast.

Every morning, within 15-20 minutes of waking up, my tummy does this weird rambling noise – telling me its time to fill fuel again… and I just love it! And you know what’s a good thing to do when your body craves for fuel in the morning? Feed it good, healthy things like this homemade granola…. just so that it would help kick start the day with renewed energy and zest. And what’s even better about this is that you can get away with throwing in a bunch of healthy ingredients together, toss it with honey or maple syrup, bake it and call it your very own brand of homemade granola! So save your money on cereal / muesli and make this at home!

Because this is homemade, you can try a million combinations to see what flavors you like the best! Not only is it a great breakfast option for adults, but the kids would love it too!

Dark Fantasy Cookies Recipe | Eggless Chocolate Stuffed Cookie | Written by Kavitha Ramaswamy of Foodomania.com

Cookies have never tasted so good!

Stuffed with chocolate, this buttery cookie dough is fabulous enough to eat raw. And once you bake it to perfection, you’ve just got the most interesting cookie in your hands! The texture of the cookie itself is smooth, almost a wonderful intersection between soft and crispy. I don’t know about you, but I need my cookies to be a little crunchy. I don’t get the whole “soft cookie” concept. If I wanted to eat something soft, I would eat a cake or a cupcake or a brownie slice right? But I’ve also tasted extremely crunchy cookies and I don’t like them either. I need a cookie somewhere in between. And these dark fantasy cookies are so far the best textured cookies I’ve baked – only second  to my classic Chocolate Chip cookie! 😉   (more…)
