Tourtière with Candied Bacon Crumble

This Tourtière With Candied Bacon Crumble is a comforting meal filled with flavourful spiced meat and crumbled candy bacon. It is my take on this traditional meat pie. Normally I try and make my recipes coordinate the season, and honestly I don’t think I’ve ever made tourtière in May! I did, however, make it once…

Caramel Apple Fritters

These perfect Caramel Apple Fritters are out of this world. Filled with tart caramelized apples and ribbons of cinnamon, which is the perfect compliment to this buttery yeast dough. Topped with a vanilla glaze which adds just a hint of sweetness to the crisped outside. These fritters are the perfect brunch, dessert or after school…

Perfect Pretzel Bites with Honey Mustard Dip

  Today’s recipe has long been one of my favourite snacks. When I was a kid nothing was better than a trip to the mall for an Aunt Anne’s pretzel. The soft, salted, buttery dough with their honey mustard dip was pretty much my idea of perfection. Now, as a grown up I don’t live…

Peach Crisp Cheesecake

It’s PEACH season,  which is probably my personal favourite of all the fruits we are lucky enough to enjoy through out the summer. This year I have even better access to glorious Okanagan peaches as we’ve relocated to British Columbia. Even though I still have boxes to unpack I couldn’t resist the peaches at the…

Vanilla Pastry Cream Tart with Berries

  Guess who’s back, back again, Terri’s back, tell your friends! Ok, first I want to say I hate how long it’s been since I’ve blogged. What’s worse is that I promised I would blog more often, but the truth is I just haven’t been able to. I’ve kind of been in this fog since…

Sweet Biscuit Strawberry Shortcake

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! That is right, it is finally strawberry season. Sure you can get grocery store strawberries that lack flavour and cost a fortune, but right now is the time of year they taste the juiciest, and cost the least. I will be making jam soon, and maybe I…

Mom’s Blueberry Rhubarb Coffee Cake

There are many recipes I have that bring me back to a certain time, or place, in my life. As I’m sure you can all relate, the smell of blended ingredients, the textures and sounds of the kitchen, the memories made, are all a part of what connects us to food. This particular recipe is…

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…
