Brioche Style Hamburger Buns

I just got back from a fantastic trip to Walt Disney World with my family, and I cannot believe this heat. We spent our days in the rain, which made for shorter lines, but we all laughed to find out it was hotter when we got home.  From the minute we returned I have wanted…

Sweet Potato Fritters

These sweet potato fritters are one of my favourite things to eat. I even end up sneaking the leftover ones, when those exist, from the fridge and eat them cold. I know that probably sounds gross, but if you make these, see how long it takes before they are calling your name too. Even if…

Pecan Sticky Buns

These pecan sticky buns are a family favourite, and have become an expected tradition for breakfast on any kind of holiday morning…or really just because its been too long. Today I thought I would surprise my girls with these as an after school treat, and it was a good decision, the minute they got home…

Family Pizza Night

Monday night is often pizza night in our house, with three ravenous kids, one hungry hungry husband, and my carb addiction, this pizza is the perfect size. Also my kids hate lunch meats (even fried bologna, who doesn’t love that?), the leftovers are the perfect thing to fill lunch boxes for the next couple of…

Willow’s Cookies

Today I was trying to decide what to bake, and I was leaning towards cookies, when my Great Dane, Willow,  came over and sat on my lap. My dog has always been my salvation, and at parties if you have a pet that is usually where you can find me ( I promise I am…

Caramel Corn

Buttery delicious caramel corn, it’s movie night so don’t be torn. It’s time for you to get on board, make sure to share and not to hoard. This wonderful treat will be gone by the morn,  so make this yummy and delicious caramel corn. Ok, that was horrible and I promise never to attempt poetry…

Brown Butter Banana Bread

I am not sure why most of my recipe titles are alliterations, but I promise it’s not planned, it just seems to be happening so who am I to stop it? Banana Bread is so delicious, and almost everyone I know has a recipe they love, but it’s even better when you brown the butter…

Perfect Peach Pie

I don’t want no fly guy, I just want a pie guy. Sorry to start that way but in case you didn’t know pie makes me so happy I can’t help but sing. Today was the first day of spring and that means all my preserves and frozen summer produce is fair game. Every year…

Puff Pastry Sausage Rolls

Puff pastry sausage rolls are probably one of my favourite little snacks, or appetizer, to make. You can make the puff pastry whenever you want, it keeps great in the freezer, then all you need to do is take it out and make the filling. Super simple, yet impressive, when you are having people over….

Cinnamon Raisin Bread

It’s a cold day here, as March is coming in like a lion, so it seemed like the perfect day to make some Cinnamon Raisin Bread. Plus a warm slice of this bread toasted with butter, or even peanut butter (were wild over here I know 😉 ) is perfection on a cold day. The…

Lemon Loaf with Lemon Glaze

This was one of those weeks where it was so filled with activities I hardly got to bake, which also means I didn’t really get to blog as much as I would like. But it’s that time of year where basketball season is winding down, so are the girls’ activities, and that means soon there…

Chocolate Chip Cookies

The healing power of a good chocolate chip cookie should never be underrated. It is such a classic cookie that is really simple to make, but can also be so easily ruined. For my favourite kind of chocolate chip cookie, it’s a thin crisp caramelized outside that doesn’t sacrifice the chewy inside. I prefer the…
