Blueberry Muffins

I've always been baffled how those sky-high muffins become so tall! I've come across a couple (more like hundreds) of muffin recipes and none of them turned out the way I always imagine my muffins. Like really tall, soft but a bit dense and marbled by some extra flavor. Like blueberries or chocolate chips or some jam or cream cheese, you get the idea... I've made some really yummy muffins, alright but I always wanted the kind I just described. The ones you buy at the bakery. Fancy bakeries, might I add.  So when I almost gave up today to bake something, then I found this amazing recipe in Pierre Hermé's cook book.  You know those moments when you think you're failing everything in life? Then turn to Pierre Hermé. His recipes deliver. And anyways, baking just makes people happy, right? Mainly if you succeed and you get to take pictures of pretty blue and yellow muffins! :) This makes my bad day turn into a good day and I will hold onto it! :) Okay, I won't make you…

Mini Chocolate Ganache Cheesecake

Oh my...I've been on a bit of a vacation from my blog. Not literally, no. I've just had lots of things going on in my life that took all my motivation from cooking and baking. But hopefully now that I've moved back to my parents', and I have access to all the utensils and ingredients, this sad situation will change and I'll post many delicious recipes! Yay for that! :) Let's start with these mini cheesecakes... What can I say, cheesecake and chocolate combined. The recipe is ridiculously easy, I literally just threw it together. No skills are needed, you probably have all the ingredients at hand (maybe except for the cream cheese) and who doesn't wanna have cheesecake on the weekend?? Oh! And one has a lot less calories than a slice of cheesecake does!  So what are you waiting for? Go, make some! :)
