Sorry we’ve been away for a while…math meets and the flu have kept us both very busy this week. We will come back with bang this weekend with two recipes – one savory, one sweet – to make up for it, we promise!
In the mean time, check out these gorgeous cupcakes from Jessica at How Sweet Eats!

Maybe we should rename these easy-to-eat s’mores.
They take about thirty seconds to make, and about seventeen to eat. We would know. These are snacks that are made during desperate times, when all we want to do is open a box, punch in numbers on the microwave, and dig in.
Both of us make them often now, though the idea was originally Susanth’s. Some of you may be appalled that we are not using a campfire to make s’mores, but if you have easy access to a fire pit in your kitchen, please invite us over; we’d love to see it. These taste almost as good, we promise.
The ingredients are simple, and you most likely have all of them in your kitchen right now. Seriously. Go check.
Maria Cookies, mini marshmallows, chocolate chips, and mini peanut butter cups (optional.) Forget about the sugar, you don’t actually need it.
In fact, these are so simple that we’re not even giving you a recipe. Just follow the pictures!
Take two Maria biscuits (we find these at the Indian store, but I know you can also find them in the Spanish section of your grocery store. We like these better than graham crackers because they don’t soften in the microwave) and arrange some chocolate chips and mini marshmallows on the “bottoms” of the crackers.
You can also use these mini peanut butter cups, which are the best invention ever. Unless you’re allergic to peanuts.
See? Just place three or four on the cracker.
Put your plate in the microwave for thirty seconds or until the marshmallows puff up and the chocolate is slightly melted.
The best part? This:

So we figured you stumbled upon us on a random search. That or you’re one of the few people who know us in person. Either way, welcome to our digital home! We are a sister and brother who, along with the regular sibling-ish stuff, love to cook and bake. Our hobby brings us together (except for when we argue about what to make, but let’s skip over that for now) in our kitchen, that is sometimes cluttered with us running over each other – hence the title, Krowded Kitchen. (Umm, you may be wondering about the excessive alliteration. WordPress already had Crowded Kitchen registered. Sorry, don’t mean to be kitschy.)
We started taking pictures of what we made – like a catalog almost – when our Dad gave us the idea to start a blog. We hope that you’ll find great recipes, creative photography, and even some humor here. We both are looking forward to updating this blog as often as we can. We’re ardent fans of the kitchen, the Boston Celtics, and dessert. We hate vegetables, the Lakers, and each other. (Just kidding! Kind of.) Hope you’ll stop by often!
Yours in sweet and savory,
Sruthi and Susanth
