The website jewish pathways seems to discuss this very issue and concludes based on the Mishna Berurah and the Schulhan Aruch that that ikkar v'taffel is handled differently with mezonot food: Rule #1 – A mezonot food receives its own bracha even when it is the tafel. [MB 208:23] Rule #2 – When mixed with other ingredients and made into one food, a ...

It is a good question and in fact it is answered only by reading between the lines. The Halachic terms are Ikkar ("main component" in the question) and Taffel (a lesser component). From the Shulchan Aruch (Siman 212), the Achronim have concluded that the Taffel actually does require a Beracha but that it is included in the Beracha of the Ikkar. The ...

The existing answer provides a nice survey of final p'sak. The following is the development from the sources: The Gemara Berachos 36a has the following conclusion: מהו דתימא כיון דלרפואה קא מכוין לא לבריך עליה כלל קמ"ל כיון דאית ליה הנאה מיניה בעי ברוכי What might one have thought? Since [the purpose of its comsumption] is intended for medicinal ...

R’ Moshe Feinstein (Igros Moshe OC 1:82) writes that if the medication itself tastes nice, then one should recite a beracha. R’ Ephraim Greenblatt (Rivevos Ephraim 4:54:39) writes that R’ Yosef Shalom Elyashiv held that if one mixed the medicine into something that tastes good, one would need to recite a beracha on it. R’ Dr. Avraham Avraham (Nishmas ...

If all you're having is borei nefashot foods, it's probably not necessary to do anything different. Say the bracha rishonah quietly before you take a bite, and a borei nefashot at the end. It's not that long. If you have to make an al hamichya, i would just tell them, "i'll be with you in a second, i just have to say a short grace after eating." As Double ...

It's in berachot 51, acording to Rabbina you can bless even if you remebered you didn't after you are done eating. The Raabad holds this opinion. Here is an essay about it: http://ybm.org.il/hebrew/LessonArticle.aspx?item=1891

See Shulchan Arukh OC 172 for such an opinion (that if you drink and remember before swallowing that you didn't say a Bracha you can swallow and say a Bracha after swallowing) quoted in the Rama. (I note it is a somewhat controversial position, so CYLOR for a final ruling.)

Supplementing @GershonGold's answer, see this article. There is a controversy as to whether the brachot recited before the haftarah are really 1 or 2 brachot. In response to your second question, there are a few reaons, all based on what I am inferring form the linked article. Haftarah was originally considered supplemental to the Torah reading, if you ...

Encyclopedia Yeudis says in the name of the Kalbo that there are 7 Brachos for the Haftora against the seven who had Aliyos. It says that the Brachos are mentioned in Mesechtas Sofrim 13. המפטיר מברך שבע ברכות על ההפטרה נגד שבעה העולים לס"ת (כלבו) במס' סופרים (פי"ג) נרשמו הברכות שאומרים לפני ואחרי ההפטרה (ויש שינויים בסדור רב עמרם גאון), ומסיים "בא"י ...

The question revolves around whether or not you were Masiach Daas - a mental interruption or not. This question is a dispute among the poskim as to what is considered a hesech hadaas. The Shulchan Aruch (סימן ח' סי"ד) says ואם פשט טליתו אפילו היה דעתו לחזור ולהתעטף בו מיד צריך לברך כשיחזור ולהתעטף בו. If one took his Tallis off, even if he had in mind ...

Well, in the מחזור מכל השנה מנהג פולין, which I follow, the text of the first ברכה is הנותן not אשר נתן and the text of the "later" one is המכין. Therefore, they do agree in my siddur.
