Whats New This Week?

October 25, 2019

          OH NO! She’s done it again, another pumpkin recipe here for you all to enjoy! I’ve never made fudge, at least not the usual kind of fudge you see more frequently around Christmas time. But half of my pumpkin has been sitting in the fridge, just begging to be turned into something deliciously sweet! 

           I would like to say this is...

           Its funny how our tastes can change as we get older, Okay side note... Now I'm feeling old! 

         Moving on.... I did NOT like banana bread growing up, it was just, such a boring dessert compared to delicious oatmeal cookies or shortbread cookies or chocolate chip cookies... Can you see a pattern here? I had a bit of a cook...

            Big get-togethers with all of our friends and family always call for some sort of amazing chocolatey dessert! So why not throw together a batch of classic, fail proof brownies; and better yet, lets top those bad boys off with some cream cheese frosting because well…. YUM, why not?

        The explanation of why I made doughnuts this week is simple, Maxime bought me a doughnut pan; and so, I made doughnuts.

          So I guess the sentence above wasn’t enough to fill in my intro to this weeks recipe, was it?  Fine I’ll continue on …

          A few months ago, when I was...

          While waiting in line at Starbucks the other morning, I noticed they had these amazing looking treats; naturally, they were not vegan so as soon as I got home I made it my mission to find out how to make something similar.  Keep in mind I’ve never tried the Starbucks version, but oh man, you are in for a treat with these homemade cranberry Bliss bars!...

          When I was a kid I was all about the sugar cookies, my sister was more of a gingerbread lover…. For some weird reason this year I actually felt like I needed to make gingerbread cookies BEFORE my beloved sugar cookies ?! What’s up with that? Anyways after three batches of gingerbread cookies I finally found a recipe that worked!  The first batch was too cru...

          Like most families, as a kid we had our traditions, on the first of December every year, I would get home from my volleyball tournament and my mom and sister would always be waiting for me, Christmas music playing, a bowl of chips, a plate of cookies and some spiced Pepsi (I know none of this is healthy but hey, its once a year! Also … they don’t make spice...

          About a month ago I decided to make a pretty big change in my life, since then I found myself with A LOT of time on my hands. With all this free time I found a new passion for making cakes! I’ve never been a big fan of eating cake, but I LOVE making and decorating cakes/cupcakes! Maybe a little more than two  months ago I finally figured out how to make an...

            I feel like the holidays are just coming way too fast this year! It’s not even my birthday yet and the Halloween decorations have already hit the shelves for over 2 weeks here…. And that’s not even the worst part, if you venture farther towards the back of the stores, nearing the end of the Halloween decorations… Christmas lights have already began to mak...

          My fancy dessert #2 was a success! So this idea really was a last minute thing, and I’m super surprised at how well it ended up turning out! It was a bit more work than other desserts you could make, but I mean come on, how classy does this sweet treat look?!

          These coconut cream filled éclairs with chocolate...

           About a week ago I bought myself a little icing kit, it comes with a few different tips to make a variety of shapes and styles! My entire week of work I spent thinking of what I’ll do first with my new kitchen “toy”. I have no idea why, but recently it hit me that I kind of want to learn how to make slightly more interesting and fancy looking food!...

          It’s that time of year again! The leaves are changing colour… a bit early I might add, the wind is starting to get chilly and the mornings call for something warm and savoury!

          Not wanting to stray to far away from our usual foods, I decided to make my weekly protein cupcakes; but with a twist, I added a little Pumpkin spice fros...

          This mix of spices could not be more useful throughout the fall and winter seasons, it makes for the best homemade pumpkin spice lattes, Pumpkin pies and SOOOO much more! Literally the possibilities are endless, so why not throw together a batch today?
