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

Cinnamon Bun Pull Apart

Cinnamon Rolls are AMAZING. The best cinnamon roll place is called “Cinnamon Roll Fair” on South Kihei Road in Maui….not Vancouver, sadly. Which is kind of a plus because I would eat there. Every.Single.Day.  Our condo happens to be conveniently located RIGHT NEXT DOOR (coincidence? I think not) to the heavenly gates that lead into Cinnamon Roll Fair, the brief walk into the bakery is guided … Continue reading Cinnamon Bun Pull Apart

Caramel Apple Upside Down Cake

Cake is awesome. The house always smells so good, and cake always makes people happy.  When was the last time you made upside down cake? Never? Is it because people always associate it with pineapple upside down cake and that cake is tired out? Probably. Are we still in the mid 1930’s? Heck no, it’s 20 friggen 18 my friends. Time for you to retire … Continue reading Caramel Apple Upside Down Cake

Cranberry White Chocolate Muffins

I use a LOT of white chocolate in baking. I think  it’s delicious. If someone gives me a choice between dark, milk or white it’s going to be white. I love other chocolate too, obviously, if someone gives me any kind of chocolate I won’t turn it down –  but I have a special spot in my heart for white chocolate. And don’t give me … Continue reading Cranberry White Chocolate Muffins

Rhubarb Pie

I doubt my parents neighbour is reading this…but Brenda if you are…thank you for all the beautiful rhubarb from your garden. I have no idea how she does it, but she always has the most beautiful fruit and vegetable garden, and she’s always incredibly generous with sharing the wealth! Anyways, my mom always does really fun things with rhubarb, she’s very creative.  To be honest, I … Continue reading Rhubarb Pie
