FIG & WALNUT PALMIERS

FIG & WALNUT PALMIERS

Figs and walnuts are one of my favourite combinations. Whether I make a cake or just pop a fig and walnut in my mouth at the same time, the flavor combination is great. When I started making palmiers, I knew I had to try it […]

COCONUT PINEAPPLE UPSIDE DOWN CAKE

COCONUT PINEAPPLE UPSIDE DOWN CAKE

I have been making this cake for years. I have taken a retro dessert and turned it up a notch with coconut and extra pineapple. It’s also easy to make as you are not making the cake from scratch. I like to make this in […]

PEANUT BUTTER & JELLY THUMBS

PEANUT BUTTER & JELLY THUMBS

I had a bake set when I was a child. It included some recipes and my favourite was this peanut butter and jelly thumb print cookie. I lost the recipe, but I remember the cookie, and these taste just like it. They are also quite […]

JALAPENO CHEDDAR BISCUITS

JALAPENO CHEDDAR BISCUITS

I’ve made many variations of this biscuit. This jalapeno cheddar is my newest one. It tasted like cornbread. The almond flour gives it the cornbread texture. It’s also keto friendly.

CRANBERRY WHITE CHOCOLATE SHORTBREAD

CRANBERRY WHITE CHOCOLATE SHORTBREAD

I love shortbread. My Mom would make it every Christmas. I’ve taken a basic recipe and jazzed it up a bit by adding almond flour, dried cranberries, and white chocolate. I like to serve this on a plate and let people break off what they […]

MARRON GLACE

MARRON GLACE

The first time I had marron glace (candied chestnuts in french) was as a spread in a crepe in Paris. I was hooked, it was my favourite thing. Whenever I got waffles or crepes, I would get it with marron spread on it. Then I […]

PITA CHIPS

PITA CHIPS

Pita chips are so easy to make and are a delicious crunchy accompaniment to any dip. They are also much better than the store bought ones. I’m giving you a basic recipe which will go with anything. It’s best with a flavourful robust dip, but […]

BANANA WALNUT MUFFINS

BANANA WALNUT MUFFINS

I feel like everyone should have a banana muffin recipe. Whether it’s passed down from your grandmother or you saw something on the food network. It’s one of those recipes that you keep with you and can create over and over again. I always have […]

DATE & OATMEAL COOKIES

DATE & OATMEAL COOKIES

These are my favourite oatmeal cookies. They are good with raisins, but the dates give them a sweeter, chewier texture. The mix of the two kinds of oats gives it a nice texture as well.

LIMONCELLO COOKIES

LIMONCELLO COOKIES

These cookies are a cross between a cake and a cookie. They are soft and chewy. The yogurt is what gives them their texture and balances the sweetness from the limoncello. They are lovely on their own as they are slightly sweet, but with the […]
