PUMPKIN SEED BRITTLE

PUMPKIN SEED BRITTLE

I saw these at William Sonoma. They looked good but are really expensive. I decided to try to make my own and I love how they turned out. I used brown sugar instead of white and sprinkles some pumpkin spice on them when they were […]

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 […]

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

WALNUT FLAX HEARTS

WALNUT FLAX HEARTS

These make for a great snack. With lots of walnuts and sprouted flax they are also super nutritious. I like to make a big batch of them and store them in the freezer, then I can pop them in my mouth whenever I want.

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 […]

BEET HUMMUS

BEET HUMMUS

I have a friend who is vegan and when she visits I usually have some kind of hummus and pita chips available for us to snack on. I bought a beetroot hummus from the store and it wasn’t that great. It was sweet and lacked […]

SPICED PITA CHIPS

SPICED PITA CHIPS

I don’t have measurements for this recipe because you can make as many as you like. Pita chips are so easy to make and are much better than the store bought ones. The best part is you can customize them by adding different spices. I […]

MUHAMMARA

MUHAMMARA

When I was visiting turkey this spread was always offered as an appetizer with bread. It was my favourite. I had no idea what it was or what was even it in. All I knew is that it tasted delicious. I’ve seen this made to […]
