Sweet Cravings & a Recipe for Dark Chocolate Pistachio Crackle Cookies

You know when you get one of those unrelenting, all-consuming cravings for chocolate that make you feel like a stark raving mad person? Don’t act like you don’t know what I’m talking about. It happens to the best of us. Satisfying this craving makes you feel like a better person. A whole person who can […]


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. This obviously includes chocolate. 3} It’s time for pumpkin everything, everywhere. Cake, […]


NYC Cookie Dreaming & Some Salted Double Chocolate Cookies

I don’t think that there’s such a thing as too many cookies. Nope. That would just be crazy. When I came across this recipe for a version of New York’s Levain Bakery’s Chocolate Chip Cookies {they sounds so good, I think a trip to NYC is in order… who’s in?}, I needed to make them. […]


Cookie Addictions & a Recipe for Chocolate Coconut Cookies

  You know when you just really want a cookie and you have kind of a desperate, SOMEONE GIVE ME A PLATE OF COOKIES, ragey-type feeling? No? No cookie rage? Oh, okay, you’re a liar. I suffer from frequent cookie rage {it’s true, ask C}. I demand plates of cookies, bags of cookies, chocolate chip […]


Sweet Occasions & a Recipe for Strawberry-Rhubarb Crumble Squares

It’s not that often that I’ll bake something sweet. Truly, decadently sweet; full of butter, sugar, vanilla, and all of the goodness that comes with it. When I bake for C & I, there’s typically a telltale heaviness to it – caused by whole wheat flour, added bran or flax, and fruit purees instead of […]


Appreciating the Little Things & a Recipe for Bailey’s Butterscotch Cookies

This is absolutely one of my favourite times of year, but it’s also the most emotional. I seriously turn into Ron Burgundy in a phone booth from mid-November to mid-January {I’m in a glass case of emotions!}. There are obvious reasons, of course; one being that we’re all frazzled and worn out from shopping, going […]


Bathing in the Forest & a Recipe for Eggnog Cranberry Rolls

I read this article the other day about the Japanese practice of “forest bathing”. Despite how it sounds, it doesn’t involve bathing in a forest. I’ve got to admit, at first I was a little disappointed; the idea of splashing around in the creek while rocking a shampoo bubble Mohawk sounded pretty appealing {not at […]


A Recipe for Cran-Apple & Maple Crumble with Cranberry Sauce & a Cuisinart Giveaway

I don’t know what it is about this time of year, but my tastes sure change. Yes, there are the obvious changes {like my pasta consumption being of the baked, rather than salad variety, or hot cocoa becoming a legitimate food group}, but there are the not-so-obvious ones too: like wanting dessert. Every night. Maybe […]


Summer Hoarding & a Recipe for Berry-Lemon Cobbler with Cornmeal Topping

I’ve been thinking lately {about the summer}; the belly-aches of eating too much fruit, the dehydration from basking in the sun for too long, the collective over-indulgence that could easily be described as “summer hoarding”. It’s not a new thing. Even when I was a kid, my family could see the signs. “Don’t eat too […]


Those Days & a Recipe for Blackberry-Vanilla Cake

It’s been one of those weeks. You know the ones, where everything that should go right goes wrong; where the unexpected happens, and the dreaded occurs. It’s not that bad, really. It just seems like too much to handle at one time. Naturally, I take solace in baked goods. That phone call happens, telling you […]
