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 […]

An Exciting Addition & a Recipe for Apple Cinnamon Pull-Apart Bread

Oh, I have big news. Our family is growing. No, it’s not what you think. Despite the fact that I eat enough for two the majority of the time, and that I’d really like an excuse for my clumsiness & forgetfulness {then at least I could call it baby brain}, there’s no mini-me on the […]

Sick Days & a Recipe for Oodles of Snickerdoodles

Do you ever wonder what other people were like as children? Were they as rambunctious, outspoken, or shy as they are now? Were they little troublemakers, or was there a perpetual glow of a halo sitting atop their heads? I was thinking about that over the weekend. First of all, because it was my birthday […]

Pumpkin Love & a Recipe for Chai Spiced Pumpkin Braid

It’s October, and that means three things: 1} Halloween! Finally, an excuse to dress up like a crazy person and crimp my hair and wear red lipstick regardless of my costume. 2} Candy is a legitimate food group for the next 31 days.

Warm Weather People & a Recipe for Summer Fruit Cinnamon Rolls

Are you a summer person? This shouldn’t be too tough of a question, really. Either you are like me and you find yourself seeking out sunshine, you hate wearing pants and closed-toed shoes, and you live for patio season; or, you prefer frostbite, dreary weather, and sadness. Too much? Okay. Still, I can’t get enough […]

Christmas Fun & Dorie Greenspan’s Speculoos Buttons

I know what you’re thinking. More cookies? Yes, more cookies. See, it’s almost Christmas and I’m off to the mountains for some fun in the snow {this primarily includes tobogganing, skating, horse-drawn sleigh rides, and me drinking winteresque cocktails in the lodge while everyone else skis}. I’m going to need a snack or two to […]

Stunning Snowflakes & a Recipe for Sticky Cinnamon Swirl Bread

My body doesn’t like the cold. Yes, that sounds silly. I mean, who really does like the cold? It’s more than my own whiny preference, however. My body rejects the cold. I have to wear layer upon layer of warm clothing, until I resemble a certain dough boy that giggles when his tummy is poked, […]

Early Spring Signs & a Recipe for Maple Mixed Grain Granola

Oh, it’s starting to get a little brighter outside… and just a little bit warmer. There is still snow, but it’s bound to melt soon, isn’t it? Spring is surely on its way. Before we know it, the white forest floor will be replaced with a rich, grassy cover, and the fallen trees from this […]

An Old Friend & a Recipe for Shortcut Cinnamon Rolls

  “It’s not you, it’s the mixer.” That’s how a conversation between C and I ended last night. We were talking about my mixer, aptly named Big Red, who, in my opinion, is going to… pass away soon. C offered to operate. I think it’s too late. He was astounded at my lack of confidence […]

Seasonal Flavours & a Maple Apple Tart

I love how each season has such distinct flavours. During the spring and summer, everything is so fresh, so natural, and so full of pure, ripe taste. During the fall and winter, however, the opposite can be found. Dishes are robust and warm, flavoured with rich spices and hearty ingredients. I created this Maple Apple […]
