Food has the magical ability to connect itself with memories, especially from your childhood. It's able to grab your emotions by the threshold and do whatever it takes to get that comfort of being a kid again. I recently just returned back to my old hometown, and can you guess where I wanted to eat for lunch & dinner? Yes, the places I went out to eat at as a kid. The waitresses and chefs were the same, the decorations were only updated, and the food - never been better. As I was explaining to our waitress about the time we sat at this exact table and there was a power outage, as result from the thunderstorm, all the lights went off, but luckily there were backup lights so we were able to finish our meal in peace. 6 years later, the waitress still remembers that too, and remembers us :)
But anyways, enough about me, let's get on to food. Cupcakes & Cakes seem to be a popular item that I bake, and it's true, but thats because I'd find a new variation of a cupcake that I'd want to try, and all the other recipes get shafted. Sorry savoury recipes, but you just don't taste as delicious and sinful.
One that I recently tried (and loved) was the S'more cupcake (or as Martha Stewart calls it, the Chocolate Graham Cracker Cupcakes). The graham cracker topping with gooey melted marshmallows was addictive, and with the chocolate cupcake with graham cracker crusted bottom - to die for. Instead of making the Marshmallow Topping, I just put marshmallows on the top and also put a chunk of chocolate in the middle of each cupcake so that it would melt and be even more s'morey! And boy was I right.
I had some batter left over (I halved the recipe) so I made a souffle type dessert in a ramekin (I put marshmallows inside the left over batter and topped it with a graham cracker). Which I found was just as good (or even better possibly) than the cupcakes. It was like a souffle/lava cake/s'more/heaven in a remekin.
