Salted Marshmallow & Peanut Squares

By Wednesday, July 29, 2015

These are decadent. Almost as decadent as these squares... but instead of caramel, it's marshmallow. I looove marshmallow. And I love peanuts. And salt. So these squares have been in the works for a lifetime. I don't know what's up with me, but it's like I have ...

Vegan Dark Chocolate Macaroons

By Thursday, July 23, 2015

So there are very few times when I really enjoy eating chocolate. They are (but not limited to): Chocolate chip cookies Santa Barbara Chocolate Cacao Chips Chocolate bars that are mostly not chocolate (like Mars or Oh Henry) Chocolate croissants And probably many other things I ...

Cinnamon & Sugar Pull Apart Bread

By Friday, April 24, 2015

I’m alive!!!   I kind of get annoyed when people complain they’re “so busy” or “crazy busy” or “insanely busy”. Mostly because half of them have no idea what busy really means, but also because it’s this scape-goat answer to the question “how are you?”. You’re not ...

Doughnut Muffins (Duffins!)

By Wednesday, April 15, 2015

So let me tell you about how I develop my recipes, and choose which ones to blog about. At this point, I’d say 25% (maybe as much as a third) of the recipes I blog about are my own creations – things I came up with ...

Double Chocolate Cherry Cookies

By Wednesday, April 8, 2015

So remember how I don't really like chocolate? Yeah, I kinda ruined chocolate for myself as a kid. But my dad doesn't like it either, so maybe it's genetic? Every now and then, though, I get a craving. It's really, really rare. I still would never order ...

White Chocolate & Macadamia Nut Cookies

By Friday, February 13, 2015

I’m trying to re-create one of my weaknesses here: Subway’s version of this cookie! I love fast food. There – I said it. I’ve gone through phases (years even!) where I didn’t touch it, but now I just admit it – I really love it. It’s ...

Skor Bar & Chocolate Chip Mini Cookies

By Thursday, November 6, 2014

I made you COOKIES!   These are actually baby cookies – the ones I first wrote about way back in 2011. When I read that post, I remember how AMAZING the cookies were (and how everyone in my offices gobbled them up), but I also look at ...

Strawberry Cheesecake Turnovers

By Thursday, October 2, 2014

It’s has been WAY too long since these were in my life!!! If you’re a long-time reader, you’ll recall that I first made Strawberry Cheesecake Turnovers in 2011. I raved and raved about them. They’re so EASY, they’re so DELICIOUS, blah blah blah… Well, unfortunately for you, ...

Glazed Almond-Raspberry Scones

By Tuesday, September 23, 2014

OMG these scones! If you’ve been reading the blog for a while, you’ll know I love scones so much! I’ve made all types, including: Regular (great for strawberry shortcake!) Pumpkin Spiced Blueberry & White Chocolate Cinnamon & Sugar And now these! They practically had my Mama’s name written on them. She LOVES raspberries ...

Strawberry-Blueberry Galette

By Thursday, September 11, 2014

Behold – the easiest dessert ever. A few weeks ago we were heading to our friends’ cottage and I offered to bring dessert. Shortly thereafter I remembered I am not a dessert person and had no idea what to make. I wanted to bring something fresh ...

Classic Banana Bread

By Friday, August 29, 2014

I’ve been making this recipe since I was 14. Seriously! Banana bread was one of the first things I learned to bake at my first job. In retrospect, it’s great for beginner bakers because it’s so darn easy. Pretty hard to mess up, right? Well that’s what ...

Chewy Chocolate Peanut Squares

By Friday, August 15, 2014

These are actually the devil. I'm not a dessert person, but peanuts and chocolate? These are practically an Oh Henry bar. That you can make at home. Obviously I did not make these for My Other Half and I to consume ourselves. I made them for book club. ...

Nutella Cupakes

By Wednesday, June 25, 2014

NUTELLA. Need I really say more? These are silly they're so good. Are you a Nutella fan? I go back and forth. As a kid I loved it, but as an adult I go through phases. I certainly don't love it for breakfast like the commercials suggest ...

White Chocolate & Berry Nanaimo Bars

By Friday, June 13, 2014

It's Friday so I made you a TREAT!   These are the WORST things to photograph. They look awful. And it was super hot this day so they were melting faster than I could shoot them. Or eat them, for that matter. Are you a Nanaimo bar fan? I ...

Easy Homemade Pizza Dough

By Wednesday, May 28, 2014

We are making pizza this week!   That's right - today I am sharing my favourite homemade pizza dough, and then Friday I am going to share two new pizza recipes - also known as Battle of the Pizzas 3.0! In the last couple months, I've gotten over ...

Coconut Vanilla Maple Granola

By Friday, May 23, 2014

I made homemade granola!!! One of my favourite breakfasts is berry yogurt, granola and some fresh strawberries or blueberries. It’s so refreshing but filling enough to get me properly started on my day. Especially since we’re getting into berry season, I thought it would be a good ...

Easy, Traditional Homemade Naan

By Friday, May 9, 2014

I'm the worst. But this naan is the BEST. Seriously, though - how long ago did I make this naan bread? A long time. And I promised I'd blog about it ASAP. And here I am, a month later. Oooops. Hopefully you can forgive me. So there's ...

Salted Caramel Apple Cupcakes

By Wednesday, April 30, 2014

Welcome to amazing. I have definitely talked about how I'm not a huge cooked apple fan on the blog before. I know, I'm weird - apple pie and apple crisp just isn't my thing though! My dad absolutely LIVES for apple desserts and I... will always ...

Cinnamon & Sugar Scones

By Friday, April 18, 2014

It's Good Friday, and the perfect time to stay home and do some baking for Easter morning. I hope you are spending the holiday weekend surrounded by loved ones! Perhaps it’s my British heritage that makes me so unbelievably obsessed with scones… I remember my first job at ...
