mini egg nest pavlovas

So, I have a thing for pavlova. And decided to take my love for it and marry it with my mini egg obsession. Cute little meringue nests were born. Then came the whipped cream. All topped with the most beautiful shimmery mini eggs that I found while visiting Target in the U.S. (I’m so in love with Target…but also a little bit grateful that we don’t have them in Canada as I’d likely be broke!)

chocolate peanut butter tart (healthier!)

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 have another cozy winter drink for you today! It’s a little twist on the homemade salted hot chocolate I shared a couple months ago! This time we’re skipping the caramel, and instead adding in some chai spices. I have two methods that work, one with a tea bag, and the other with a homemade chai spice mix…because I like to keep things simple, but also like options. Ha!

Christmas cookie box // a Christmas baking round-up

For as long as I can remember, my mom has made a bunch of different kinds of Christmas cookies, barks, bars, etc, and packaged them up on plates for gifts! Most people these days don’t really need anything for Christmas, but homemade baking is always appreciated. You can never have too many cookies, right?

chocolate dipped candied oranges

Hey hey friends! I had several requests over on instagram to share my “recipe” for candied oranges, and I’m very pleased to inform you that it is one of the easiest things ever! Basically all we’re doing is boiling water and sugar together to make a syrup, and then throwing in the oranges slices in with it to get nice and soft and sweet. And yes, the peel becomes soft and sweet too, and is meant to be eaten along with the rest of the orange!
