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…)

Green Lentil and Oats Burger

This Green Lentil and Oats Burger is a healthy twist on the regular veggie burger; packed with proteins and fiber!

Sometimes, it is nice to give up the crazy addiction for fast food and cook something light, refreshing and healthy! Keeping up with the promise I made to myself in the beginning of 2015 (to make healthy lifestyle changes), I’ve been consciously opting for ingredients that are healthy. Take Green Lentils (or Green Sprouts, if you may) for example. Packed with proteins and rendering a great texture when cooked, they are wonderful for making patties.

I’m not going to lead you to believe that a healthy lentil and oat burger will be infinitely tastier than your average burger. Health food can only do so much. However, the nuttier flavor kinda grows on you, leaving you satiated for a long time after.

If you’re looking to make a healthy vegetarian (vegan, even) choice, then do give these green lentil and oats burgers a try.. (more…)

Potatoes are humble vegetables. Inexpensive and incredibly flexible, they make for some of the best savory food creations.

Take these baked potato wedges for example. These spicy, crispy, roasted potatoes are all you need out of comfort food. And because they’re baked, you’re doing yourself a favor by cutting out all the fat. Still not the healthiest dish around, I’ll admit. But when you go high on starch, you could benefit from reducing the fat at the very least, yeah?

You can use your favorite combination of spices to customize these wedges the way you want. In fact, I always like experimenting with the seasoning, just so that I could enjoy the variety. These extra crispy baked potato wedges are quickly becoming a Friday-night staple. I freaking adore them and I’ll bet you would too! 🙂   (more…)

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”.
