People are often intimidated by the idea of baking – let alone baking something offbeat. Let me assure you, baking is not terribly difficult, and the appreciation and satisfaction it brings are disproportionately high.

Baking – to me – is a wonderful escapade into the lands of warm and cozy goodness. My philosophy is to do things not out of sheer necessity but because they make me feel good. I love to bake. And when I am fiddling about in the kitchen, I often convince myself that there are brownies or cookies that need to be baked – stat!

Take these eggless chocolate chip cookie brownies for example. Having perfected the recipes for classic chocolate chip cookies and brownies, the next sensible thing to do is to try to bake the two of them together – right? Maybe not. What with both calling for different baking temperatures and timings, this attempt would have been disastrous. But surprisingly, a few adjustments here and there and you can successfully bake brownies on cookie crust at the same time.

The soft and fudgy texture of the brownies combined with the crunchy texture of the cookies make this one interesting dessert. You get the best of both – cookies + brownies – in one bite. And that to me is a keeper!     (more…)

3 years ago, if you had told me there’d come a time when I’d be making butterscotch cookie bars at home, I’d have laughed at you. But here I am today, gloriously writing a recipe for the same. I have to thank this blog for my culinary experiments. These butterscotch flavored cookie bars are just so darn easy, that I wonder why it took me so long to discover the recipe. Brown Sugar is the miracle ingredient that makes these bars delicious!

This was the first time I tried (to bake AND eat) cookie bars and I was mildly surprised by how much I enjoyed these sweet treats. They are a cross between cookies and brownies. They taste like those classic, somewhat soft, somewhat chewy cookies. The great thing about these bars is that – unlike cookies – you don’t have to roll them out and make individual cookies. You dump the entire dough in a pan, bake and then slice into bars.

Use the basic dough to spruce up your own cookie bars. I like to add marshmallows, chocolates, nuts and even crushed graham crackers for texture and flavor. You can do whatever you like! Make this your own.

Decadent Mint Chocolate Brownies for the festive season!

Thick and fudgy brownies layered with a sweet mint frosting and a glossy chocolate ganache.

This is what a “grown-up” dessert must look like. Mint wasn’t really my thing for a very long time. Let’s face it, it is intense, sometimes pungent and not really… chocolate. But my tastes are maturing as I grow up. Mint is definitely one of those grown up flavors that I’ve grown to love.

Mint and Chocolate is a classic combination. You’ll find variations of this recipe all over the internet. But this is maybe the only “eggless” mint chocolate brownies’ recipe you’ll find. And I promise, you will love these!

I’m a sucker for a good slice of brownie. I like all kinds of brownies – classic, fudgy, chewy, nutty, rocky and many more.

I like having this mix ready for whenever I need or want to make brownies. It is just so handy, you know? The brownies taste as good, if not better, as the boxed brownie mix. You can keep it in your cabinet for whenever a brownie craving hits. Or if you have a foodie friend, gift a jar of this homemade brownie mix to him or her and watch them go nuts over the brownies that “they’ve” baked! 🙂 The best thing about keeping some of this homemade brownie mix on hand is to be able to dump stuff in a bowl and make a chocolaty magic happen whenever you please.

To make brownies, all you gotta do is take a cup of this mix and add some eggs or yogurt and some oil or melted butter (i.e – give moisture and binding) and you’re all set!    (more…)
