One of my favorite memories growing up was having bowls of creamy vanilla ice cream with chocolate sauce.

Who am I kidding? It still is my favorite pastime. But now, I’m a little more daring when it comes to ice cream flavors! I’ve graduated to the more adult flavors like Pistachio, Mint, Pralines, Green Apple etc. I’m not saying I have ice cream everyday (if only it were as healthy as a soup or some granola), but I definitely look forward to enjoying solitude with a flavor to suit my mood.

Mint is one such flavor that puts me in a happy place! The subtlety of the mint flavor along with the occasional sweetness of the semi-sweet chocolate chips puts this ice cream on top of my list of favorite flavors.

I’m not entirely sure of the origin of the brilliant mint chocolate chip ice cream. But what I do know is that When Baskin Robbins came to India, they brought with them a myriad of flavors, of which Mint Chocolate Chip became my go-to guilty pleasure.     (more…)

Hi! Are you having a nervous breakdown planning for V-Day? 😉 Nope. Not me. I’m cool as a cucumber! Why wouldn’t I be? I’ve been showering the people I love with the food I love every single day since the inception of Foodomania. So I have no doubt in my mind, I’ll be able to do the same, come f-f-f-fourteenth Feb.

Not that I have to. Nobody is expecting me to do anything grand. After all it is just another day. Like 31st of December or 1st of January. But I sure am whipping up this oreo mousse (yet again) to celebrate! I don’t need a reason to make oreo mousse .. or any kinda mousse, really. But Oreos happen to be a favorite in our household. And it is nice to shower your family with some luuurvee, right? 😛    (more…)

Nutella Layer Cake Recipe | Best Ever Chocolate Nutella Layer Cake | Written by Kavitha Ramaswamy of Foodomania.com I can’t even begin to praise the awesomeness of this moist nutella layer cake! But you know I’m going to, right? 😉

Nutella makes the world go round!!! I can’t imagine a world without this beloved chocolate hazelnut paste. It is only fair that I try to use this versatile ingredient in ALL of my desserts, right? *Note to self – use this more often. If you want to jazz things up once in a while and make a different kind of chocolate layer cake, THIS IS THE ONE TO MAKE.

I mean seriously. Nutella in the Cake. Nutella in the Frosting. You can’t really go wrong with this, can you?

And the best part – YOU get to decide how much nutella goes into every element of this gorgeous dessert! So you can be shy and add a couple tablespoons of this liquid gold or you can go all out and empty the whole bottle! You’re still going to have an a-1 layer cake.    (more…)

Coconut Mousse

Subtle and delicious coconut mousse made with vegan marshmallows, coconut milk and fresh whipped cream! A burst of tropical delight in your mouth!!! 🙂 Coconut Mousse Recipe | Instant & Eggless Coconut Mousse | Sweet Treats | Written by Kavitha Ramaswamy of Foodomania.com

Sometimes, I just want to quit my job, go some place quiet, and spend the rest of my life reading from my Kindle and eating coconut mousse.

This coconut mousse just transported me to that alternate universe. Good food does that to you sometimes, doesn’t it? 🙂

Coconut is one of those amazing fruits that not only tastes amazing in savory dishes like rice, chutneys etc., but also makes up for a fantastic ingredient to work with in desserts. The subtle burst of flavor in every bite of this mousse will leave you craving for more! As delicious as my airy chocolate mousse (both kinds!) is, I’m always game for trying new flavors. After successfully extrapolating the technique into making scrumptious strawberry and butterscotch mousse(s), I now use a similar method to make this easy coconut mousse. And what’s even cooler is that you could totally use vegan whipped cream, raw sugar and make a vegan dessert – if you so wish.   (more…)
