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 […]

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.

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 […]

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 […]

Rhubarb Fever & a Recipe for Rhubarb-Rooibos Cake

I feel that I should warn you: there’s going to be an awful lot of rhubarb talk around here this spring. If you don’t like rhubarb, I’m so sorry. If you do like rhubarb, you’re in for a treat. There seems to be an abundance of the tangy-tart vegetable this year {or maybe I’m just […]

Individual Chocolate Truffle Brownies

“These brownies are too chocolatey.” The above statement is gross and untrue. This is a phrase that has never been uttered {it better not have been… if it has, I never want to know what kind of person would say such a thing.}, with good reason. Brownies are all about being full of chocolate goodness. […]

A Sweetened Up Favourite: Browned-Butter Vanilla Caramel Corn

Confession: I consider popcorn to be a legitimate meal choice. Not for every night {give me some credit}, but there are definitely evenings where my dinner consists of a big bowl of air-popped popcorn, a bowl of vegetables {for good measure}, and a glass of wine… or two. Sometimes it’s nice to switch it up, […]

Easing into Resolutions & a Recipe for Black and White Angel Food Cake

Remember that time I was flapping my pie hole about needing a bit of a detox after the holidays? Well… I suppose that time has come. No more eggnog {the rum part is debatable}, candy, or cookies; or gravy, for that matter. It’s almost time to bring on the greens, the big mugs of white […]

Picking Rose Petals & a Recipe for Rosy Rooibos Meringues

I remember the grass was so green and soft that I refused to wear shoes {so my toes wouldn’t miss out on the cool goodness that my Babcia’s backyard had to offer}. I was about six years old, and my grandma and I were picking roses from her garden; after snipping the hearty stems and […]

Chocolate, Chocolate, and more Chocolate: Chocolate Crackle Cookies

{Sigh} More chocolate. I’m either warming your heart, or starting to annoy you with all of these chocolaty recipes over the last couple of weeks… … like these Triple Dark Chocolate Mint Cookies… … or this Chocolate Candy Cane Fudge. If you’re pleased, you’re welcome. If not, eat a stick of celery, take a breather, […]
