Chai Vanilla Bean Shortbread

You may have noticed from other recipes that I love chai tea. Chai lattes, plain chai, chai cake, chai panna cotta, chai body scrub, chai ice cream, it’s all wonderful. The warm, toasty, comforting spices – cinnamon, cloves, ginger, cardamom, and coriander – makes a cozy blend that’s perfect for winter. And since I’m a huge fan of chai, I obviously needed to put it … Continue reading Chai Vanilla Bean Shortbread

Dutch Baby

Guys guys guys…I got a cast iron pan! I know what you’re thinking…”Danica, how did you not have one before?”. I just didn’t, okay!? But now I do, and I think I’m going to be obsessed with it. It was such a great black Friday deal that I just couldn’t help myself. Besides being able to make delicious breads (cornbread on it’s way!), skillets and … Continue reading Dutch Baby

Cranberry Bliss Bars (Starbucks Copycat)

If you remember my cranberry white chocolate muffins then you remember how much I love cranberry and white chocolate. Starbucks sells cranberry bliss bars starting in late November through the holiday season every year, and they are addicting. They’re also $4.00 a pop..and frozen, but delicious none the less. But these homemade copycat Cranberry Bliss Bars are just as blissful as the Starbucks ones (maybe … Continue reading Cranberry Bliss Bars (Starbucks Copycat)

Cheesecake

Cheesecake is hands down one of my favourite desserts, they’re rich, creamy and seem to be endless in flavours. While I do love a good rich, chocolate cheesecake, it’s summertime and that just seemed like it was going to be too heavy, and there’s such beautiful fruits and berries right now it seemed like a good chance to showcase them, so plain cheesecake it is! … Continue reading Cheesecake

Peanut Butter & Blueberry Chia Muffins

These tasty little treats were the result of me trying to perk myself up and get myself organized for the week ahead. The last couple (challenging) weeks have been a write-off resulting in me spending more than I’d like to on food that I would normally prepare myself (along with spending more than I should be on a fun distracting app). So instead of spending … Continue reading Peanut Butter & Blueberry Chia Muffins

Butterscotch Croissant Pudding

Carbs are awesome. Don’t let anyone tell you differently, you do not need that kind of negativity in your life. Bread is definitely one my personal favourite carbs. My favourite dinner? Bread, cheese, and wine. That will woo me over any day. Honestly though bread is SO versatile you can do basically anything you want with it. Even bad bread is good. Stale Panetonne? Toast … Continue reading Butterscotch Croissant Pudding

Irish Guinness Soda Bread with Cheddar

So I’ve come to understand that the backbone of a lot of traditional Irish dishes basically begins and ends with potatoes, which I’m 100% on board with, I think it’s fantastic. I also happen to love Whisky. I mean, I know they eat a lot of beef and mutton, which really isn’t up my alley, so I guess my idea of a great Irish dining … Continue reading Irish Guinness Soda Bread with Cheddar
