carrot roll cake with Woolwich Original Fresh Soft Goat Cheese | #ad

First you’ll notice that this is a roll cake. I’ve never seen a carrot roll cake before, and was a little nervous about how it would work, but it was a dream! Of course I went through a few rounds of testing, some were hilariously bad...haha, but the result is a perfectly fluffy cake that bakes up in about 10 minutes! Then I decided to do a fresh take on the classic pairing of cream cheese frosting, and instead used Woolwich Dairy’s Original Soft Fresh Goat Cheese paired with brown butter. I’m obsessed with this goat cheese as it’s such a unique flavour, is made with Canadian goat milk, and it complemented the warm spices in the carrot cake so well.

paska (easter bread) - small batch

Easter is nearly upon us, and for my family that means…..paska time! Paska is a slightly sweet, slightly citrus-y bread that is made for Easter, and is often served with icing and sprinkles. Some families make loaves, some make buns, some frost just the tops, and some cut theirs open to frost the open faced sides! There’s no wrong way, truly. Our family loves simply toasting paska and eating it with butter for breakfast. Haha.

halfway homemade cinnamon sugar cruffins (made with puff pastry)

It’s time for another halfway homemade recipe! I teamed up with my dear friend Kristie from The Sweet and Simple Kitchen to bring you another fun, super easy recipe that we think you’ll love. It is always such a different experience for me when I get to bake with a friend and fellow blogger. Food blogging is such a funny, and sometimes isolating thing, so it’s always so fun when you get to bounce ideas off of someone face to face! I’m pretty sure I would have thrown in the towel on these if Kristie hadn’t been there offering encouragement and ideas! Ha!

lemon poppyseed loaf with lemon glaze

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!
