Stopping by mid week to post a supremely easy breakfast treat – the Pancake muffins!

Pancakes are by far the easiest recipe I have ever come across. But you do have to babysit each pancake, flipping them when they’re done and making more. When you are the one making them, you almost always  end up with leftovers or cold pancakes. With these pancakes in muffin tins, you can have the best of both worlds – taste of a pancake in a cupcake form without having to sit over a griddle flipping pancakes.

These adorable little breakfast-on-the-go muffins can be baked in regular sized cupcake molds as well; but I do think the mini versions make for better looking muffins. The batter is as easy as mixing 8-9 ingredients together, in no specific order. You may or may not add chocolate chips or blueberries on top of the batter for extra flavor. Just pop them into an oven and let them bake into perfect little pancake muffins!

As usual, the year flew by and I didn’t even realize how soon 2016 came knocking on my door. I’m quite emotional as I write the first post of 2016.

2015 was rough. Don’t get me wrong. There were quite a few wins – personally and professionally. And I am incredibly grateful for that. However, it has definitely not been a smooth sail. 2015 was rife with uncertainties, chronic fevers, stress and multiple situations that I like to describe as bubbles-being-burst. But I’m not one to dwell on the past. Every bit of the journey has been worthwhile. I am glad to have not lost my mojo, and I’m excited to get a fresh start.

Yes. 2016 – for this blog – will be year of loads of fantastic (and easy!) recipes. And I’m starting off the year of fantastic food with these decadent Ferrero Rocher Cupcakes.  (more…)

Hershey’s Kisses have got to be the cutest candies ever invented. Not only do they taste amazing (I mean, hello? That burst of chocolate in your mouth? Yauza!), but they also effortlessly add a certain cuteness to an dessert they are a part of. For lazy people like me, this is great because we don’t have to spend hours stressing over dessert-decorations!

Inspired from these intensely-chocolaty candies, I decided to make some cupcakes that will knock your socks off! With a basic chocolate cupcake base, I take it up a notch by stuffing each cupcake with a Hershey’s kiss. And then I frost them with an amazing frosting I discovered accidentally. Yep – have you tried combining buttercream and marshmallows and chocolate? You’ve got to do it right now – if you haven’t already!

The best part is that you really don’t need to stress yourself too much. You’re going to enjoy making these cupcakes – just as much as you’re going to enjoy devouring them!    (more…)

A little fun factFoodomania went live on this very day, THREE years ago.

I’ve been living this amazing life for three years now. sparkle in my eyes (just for the dramatic effect! 😀 ) The thing about undiscovered passion is that you keep fidgeting around, until you find your mojo. And once you do, you can’t imagine a life without it. My experience with creating this website is also something like that.

Everyday, I get to do what I love whilst building a community of like-minded foodies. I think that’s a pretty sweet deal. And I wouldn’t have been able to do what I love, if i weren’t for all of you who read, comment, write back to me, test my recipes and generally motivate me to do better. So, Thank You! Now – let’s celebrate. 😉

So, what do you do when you are in a celebratory mood? Indulge of course! And can there BE a better indulgence that Chocolate? I think not. And keeping up with my style of cooking –  minimal efforts • maximum results – here’s a fancy dessert that requires less than 60 minutes of your efforts – The Chocolate Brownie Cupcake.
