On my personal Instagram profile, it states that dessert is my favourite meal of the day. True story. I often read over the dessert menu before I make a decision on an appie or main course. Anything chocolate is the top choice and a Key Lime or Lemon Meringue Pie usually falls to the bottom of the list. Continue reading
You will probably notice how often I contradict myself when it comes to eggs. It’s true. I do not like eggs and would prefer to not consume them hence the eggless recipes. However, there are certain foods that are egg based and absolutely love. So yes, you will also find egg-y recipes on my site unless I can make them egg free like these cupcakes. Continue reading
I love macarons! I think it’s safe to say the love is universal. They constantly pop up in my social media feeds like a must-have accessory. Not only are they pretty but so delicate and delicious. I am always reminded of my Parisian adventures with every bite. Continue reading
Sugar cookies are a classic baked treat that can be enjoyed at any time. Their popularity is usually heightened around a holiday such as Christmas, Easter or Halloween.
I have attempted several recipes in the past and the cookies were either too sweet, too egg-y for my taste (remember I do not like eggs), or too hard. I came across this recipe on Sally’s Baking Addiction and I did not have to alter anything. The cookies came out soft with crisp edges and not overly sweet. Of course, that would be the cookie on its own without any sprinkles or icing. Continue reading
When Christmas is on the horizon the fuss over gingerbread treats go into full swing. Not a big fan of the ginger bread! There I said it.
They are absolutely fun to decorate. We as a family decorate a gingerbread house every year and the kids make bets on how long their dad can resist the urge to eat the house. Taste wise though, I always find the spices overpowering and they tend to be as hard as rocks. That was until I finally tried a chewy ginger cookie from a local bakery. It was so delicate with just a hint of spice and melts in your mouth. I am drooling just thinking about it. I haven’t quite figured out the bakery’s recipe but the one I am about to share is just as drool-worthy! Continue reading
With the holidays around the corner, our house is usually filled with the delicious scent of baked goods. Lately, my kids love to watch or take part with the cooking and baking that happens at home. This is a fun recipe that is simple and quick enough to make with the kids. Heck, they can even make it themselves…with supervision of course! Continue reading
I try my best to send my kids with homemade snacks to school. Banana muffins or bread is my usual go to recipe. We almost always have all of the ingredients on hand.
A little secret about me is that I am not a big fan of eggs! Although that has not stopped me from ordering Eggs Benedict for brunch or Creme Brûlée for dessert when I am dining out. However, if I add eggs to any of my home made goodies I do not like to eat them. I try to bypass the eggs if at all possible or replace it with another ingredient but the taste and texture is often compromised. Continue reading
