Citrus season is still going strong, and nothing beats a classic loaf! They are such a reliable go-to, and perfect to pair with a cozy drink on a cold winter day. Lemon is such a bright, zippy flavour, and is always such a joy to use in the kitchen. I will say, that if you don’t own a zester….invest in one! It’s one of those kitchen gadgets that - yes it only has one use - but it is sooooo difficult to make citrus-y things without it! I’ve tried using a peeler and a sharp knife to get the same result….haha. Nope. Just doesn’t work!Read More
Honestly there’s nothing better than a classic chocolate chip cookie! This is one of my most made recipes, and there’s usually a few kicking around in my freezer at all times. They are so easy to whip up, and I love keeping some unbaked and frozen, so that I can have a freshly baked cookie whenever I want! These cookies have crispy outsides, chewy insides, and taste like my childhood.Read More
Chocolate + Peanut Butter = a match made in heaven!
I love chocolate. And I love peanut butter. And I love them even more when they’re together! I was inspired by Kristan from - A Broken Bread - when I saw her peanut butter tart! I’ve often made a peanut butter pie which is quite thick, and had never thought about making it a bit smaller! It’s such a rich, decadent dessert, so the tart is such a perfect fit for it.Read More
Okay…I feel like I need to give a bit of background info before we jump right into talking about these cookies! I have a history of luckiness….as in, I have won an absurd number of contests in my life! Free airline tickets, workshops, prints, blankets, cookware, etc. You get the picture. Ha! As a kid I once had my name drawn TWICE at a 5K run I was part of…and had to give up my second prize of an overnight stay in Whistler because I was honest, and told them I had already won something. HILARIOUS.Read More
Today we’re talking about fluffy fluffy DOUGHNUTS. They have the freshest zest of blood orange in them, and I can’t get enough of them.
This doughnut recipe is seriously so simple, and the options for the toppings are endless! I chose a pink blood orange glaze with a splatter of gold, but you could simply roll in powdered sugar or granulated sugar, glaze with a thin plain glaze, or choose the glaze type of your choice. I think a rich chocolate glaze would go so perfectly with the zesty orange flavour of the doughnuts too! And of course, you can swap out the blood orange with any citrus…yay!Read More
