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 […]

Garden Goodness & a Recipe for Mixed Herb and Cheese Biscuits

It feels so good to finally have a garden. Okay, it’s not so much a garden as a handful of planters on my front step, but it’ll do for now. It’s a good start, too, for a black thumb like me… you know, baby steps. I don’t grow much; a handful of flowers here and […]

Winter Madness & a Recipe for Whole-Wheat, Flax, and Hemp Heart Bread

Polar vortex, schmolar schmortex. It’s minus 40 Celsius as I write this {that’s also minus 40 Fahrenheit for our lovely neighbours to the south}, and the world is ending. I mean, it’s March {March!} and it’s easily already the coldest day of the winter. A certain groundhog told us last month that spring was coming […]

Breakfast Goodness & a Recipe for Whole-Wheat Blueberry Pancakes

Pancakes are kind of magical, aren’t they? They’re so nostalgic {outdoor pancake breakfasts in the summertime, pajama-clad brunches with the family, my Babcia’s pancakes for dinner – slathered in sugar and jam}, so easy to make, and – most of all – so damn tasty. I love how you can add practically any ingredient to […]

Clumsy Disasters & a Recipe for Seedy Whole Wheat Biscuits

Finally, we’re all settled in. Sort of. The room full of boxes {otherwise known as the office} says otherwise, but that’s what closing doors and ignorance are for, right? Out of sight, out of mind. We’d be more settled if I hadn’t spent the past week in a concussed stupor, but I was ordered to […]

A Case of the Mondays & a Recipe for Herbed Cheese Knots

It’s a late-March Monday morning and the sun has not yet come out. There’s a heavy, grey shade ahead, and delicate snowflakes are starting to land on the pine trees outside my window. If all goes as forecasted, there will be a foot or two of the icy flakes blanketing the forest floor by the […]

Simple Baking & A Recipe for Whole Wheat Seed-Topped Boules

There are plenty of reasons to bake your own bread. For one, you know what’s in it. You’re not blindly consuming a strange assortment of artificial flavours, preservatives {diammonium phosphate, anyone?}, and ingredients with names you cannot pronounce. Secondly, there’s a beautiful sense of accomplishment that comes with creating a golden-crusted loaf of bread, from […]

A Wise Woman’s Advice & A Recipe for 10-Grain Whole Wheat Bread

I’m trying. Oh, how I am trying. I’m trying so very hard to stick to a clean, healthy diet – as part of a hapless resolution, naturally – and it seems that I’m constantly being tested. It started out wonderfully, and then about a week into it, things started to go wrong; events popped up, […]

Hot Weather, Hot Buns … (Whole Wheat Sesame Ones)

I know I shouldn’t be baking in this heat; or at least that’s what C tells me. Our apartment is pretty much at a toasty 27 degrees around the clock, and having the oven on only increases that. But I’m one of those irritating people who aren’t fazed by the heat. I sit in the […]

A Seasonal Treat: Rhubarb Crumble Muffins

When I was a kid, we had a few rhubarb patches in our backyard. My parents had a love-hate relationship it – they loved its deliciousness, but hated how it managed to take over the entire back yard. No matter how much they tried to cut it back, it kept growing… it was like a […]
