Delightful Dingle & a Recipe for Raspberry Scones

“People from the east coast of Canada are more Irish than people from Ireland.” That, my friends, is what an Irishman in a pub in the beautiful little town of Dingle told me. We were chatting about how incredible Ireland is: with its almost unfathomable amount of green, its delicious beer, hearty food, and of […]


Sweet Treats & a Recipe for Triple Chocolate Cookies

Sometimes, you need chocolate. Sometimes you need cookies. These beauties will take care of both of those things. They’re packed with chocolate, are super-soft, and get their nice texture from a wee bit of coconut and oats. Oh, yes. They’re lovely. Plus, if you share them, you’ll basically be loved by all… because there’s no […]


Lovely Holidays & a Recipe for Irish Brown Bread

Ah, Valentine’s Day. The most romantic day of the year. The day where lovers ‘round the world take time to celebrate one another, showering each other in gifts of jewels, chocolate, and flowers. It is, perhaps, my favourite day of the year. If you know me at all, you know I’m all about romance. I […]


Sweet Treats & a Recipe for Spiced Hot Cross Buns

I know, guys. I now have three recipes on this site for Hot Cross Buns. But these ones are different. They’re special. They get me. Or, rather, they are so damn tasty that it takes a ton of effort on my part not to eat them all in one sitting, so… don’t judge. It is […]


A Cookie of Lies & a Recipe for Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Holy moly… it’s already the middle of January. Just so you know, “holy moly” is a much more delicate phrase than the one I’m actually saying out loud. This month has been flying by. I’ve been working away {in an office! At a brewery! It’s like I’m a grown up or something.}, getting ready for […]


Excuses, Excuses & a Recipe for Spiced Butternut Squash Bread

Oh my goodness, you guys, I’m terrible. It’s been way too long. I’d love to have some amazing reason for ignoring you, like “I was injured in the woods and then a mama bear took me in and adopted me as her own and nursed me back to health” or “a world-renowned magazine saw my […]


Cocktail Goodness & a Recipe for Eggnog Coconut Muffins

See, I was developing some cocktail recipes the other day. Ones of the holiday variety {also known as the super-tasty, super-boozy, oh my god we should drink these all year kind of cocktails}. I figured I’d make one with eggnog as the delicious, seasonal concoction is already in stores here, so I bought a carton. […]


Insomnabaking & a Recipe for Cinnamon Swirl Biscuits

You know those mornings when you wake up way too early and just lie there, thinking, “Maybe I should get up.” I had one of those mornings last week. Four o’clock {yes. Four. In the morning.} rolled around and I just tossed and turned, my mind apparently deciding to contemplate everything in the history of […]


Late-Summer Snow & a Recipe for Pumpkin Spice Spelt Cookies

I know, it seems sacrilegious to start making pumpkin spice goodies at this time of year – you don’t have to tell me twice. But the fact that there are about six inches of snow on the ground and it’s technically still summer for a few more weeks is justifying my actions. I’m not about […]


Family Love & a Recipe for Chocolate Coconut Meringue Cookies

  We had a big family barbecue over the weekend. It was lovely because the whole family was there; well, everyone who lives around here and not in another part of the country. We grilled up some ribs and burgers, feasted on salads, roasted marshmallows over the fire {and turned them into s’mores, of course}, […]
