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.

Sometimes, I wonder if I will ever tire of chocolate. My love for chocolate and the giddiness it causes me is real. And I ain’t ashamed to admit it. My face lights up when I see / eat / smell chocolate. Too embarrassing? Probably.

But the truth is – chocolate makes my soul sing. And the more I get to work with chocolate, the chirpier and happier I get. So here’s another late-night baking experiment done right.

Rocky Road Cupcakes.

Chocolate, Nuts and Marshmallows come together in a simple eggless chocolate cupcake base. The texture rendered by roasted marshmallows, crunchy nuts and tempered chocolate is what makes this cupcake “rocky”. And hence the name – “rocky road”.

Sometimes, the best dishes emerge from an immediate need to use up leftovers. This Leftover Buttercream Cake is one such discovery.

Buttercream is possibly the most commonly used + loved frosting for cakes and cupcakes. The first time I made buttercream, I was stunned by the sheer deliciousness or something so simple. Butter + Sugar = Buttercream. Simple enough right? Who would have thought two of the most commonly used ingredients in baking would jazz up baked desserts by a thousand notches?!

Buttercream is something I’m making more and more these days. Its just so easy and inexpensive and fancy, you know. However, I always find myself with a little bit of leftover buttercream every single time. No matter how precise or stingy I get, I always end up with leftovers once I’m done frosting all my cupcakes / cakes. One fine day, I ended up with so much of buttercream leftovers; and that got me thinking…     (more…)

Not only are you looking at the best chocolate ice cream ever, but you are also looking at one of the easiest recipes on the internet for an eggless chocolate ice cream.

True story, people!

You know me; I despise any recipe that calls for too many complicated steps (which is also probably why I would fail miserably as a Chef! 😀 ). I ain’t got time for that! I’m all about minimum efforts and maximum results.

And this ice cream recipe is just a perfect example of my mantra. Okay, it isn’t as easy as making a garlic toast, but once you get your concepts right, you’ll be a pro at making ice creams of virtually any flavor in the world. A good place to start would be my vanilla ice cream. It is the most basic recipe for an ice cream which you can use to make amazing variations with.

And one such amazing variation is this Homemade Chocolate Ice Cream!   (more…)
