Strawberry Blueberry Muffins with a Streusel Topping

Mmmmm Muffins. When I want to make sure breakfast is eaten fast, or if I am having someone over for tea, these muffins will most likely be on my table. These muffins aren’t the healthy kind, like bran (although I do enjoy a good bran muffin), these are like having cake for breakfast. I think…

Cranberry Pumpkin Seed Artisanal Bread

I struggled with what to call this bread, not the cranberry pumpkin seed part, that is obvious. I wanted to call it a sourdough, because it has that texture and tang. Unfortunately it has 1/2 tsp of yeast and sugar so in my mind ( I could be wrong, it’s happened before) it’s not a…

Danish Braid with Blueberry Filling

I love this pastry, it is so delicate and buttery. It can be filled with any thing you might use in a tart or a pie. Even curd or cream cheese fillings are delicious, and someday I plan on trying to make it savoury. But today I had an abundance of blueberries so that was…

Scones and Soup

Today it’s a cold winter day, and we all have stuffy noses, so nothing feels better than a delicious soup with a warm scone to sop it up. Plus this soup, aside from being delicious, is really great when you are feeling sick. With a huge amount of Vitamin C (thank you orange vegetables) and…

Grandma’s Sugar Cookies

  I have always had a love affair with cookies, really any kind, and that was what started my interest in baking. I am sure when I was in University eating spaghetti with ketchup my family questioned if I would ever get beyond my poor culinary skills. After my mom watched me set a bag…

Lemon Curd, so versatile and worthy of my first post!

Is there anything better than a creamy, luscious, lemon curd? Ok I am sure there is, but you’d have to agree this is a close second. I love this curd recipe because its so clean, light, and lets the lemon speak for itself. There is no cornstarch or other thickener added, if you want this…

Quick Lemon Mousse

This light, airy, and delicate mousse packs a lemony punch. It is delicious all on its own for a dessert. Or you can get a little more fancy and turn it into a parfait, I love to do this in the summer with fresh raspberries layered between the lemon mousse. Well now that I’ve made…

Doughnuts

If you know me, then you know I’m crazy for doughnuts (or donuts… however you prefer to spell it)! I think what I love about doughnuts is they are so delicious, everyone likes them, they are comforting, ¬†and really they can come in so many different flavours. I think you could say I wish I…
