We all have it, that sudden craving for something sugary and sweet and delicious. And when does it usually happen? Well when there’s nothing to quell it of course!

Happy Thanksgiving! There is nothing like holiday baking. For me, holiday baking season starts October and goes all the way to Christmas. Now pumpkin, of course, is high on my list of ingredients to bake with BUT I feel it only works for a short period of time. Thanksgiving weekend (here in Canada) is the Read more

Did somebody say poundcake?May I speak for all when I say that everyone loves pound cake? I mean, the name just asks for it.

Happy weekend all! I cannot believe I never posted this recipe. This was a recipe I had pinned a while ago but sadly got lost in the ( ahem) hundreds and hundreds of pins. Did I mention I love Pinterest?! They looked delicious, I saved it, I probably didn’t have bananas, so I never made Read more

“Okay, this is my new favorite dessert.” That is a direct quote from my father, spoken just seconds after he had his first bite of these. It’s safe to say that these were a hit.

When I think of comfort food, the first thing that comes to mind is a good old-fashioned PB&J sandwich. Nothing is better or more satisfying. It brings to mind the best of childhood memories.  Now wrap that all up into a deliciously sweet package and what could be better?Not only do these squares taste exactly like Read more

If you’re anything like me, you love to have something sweet waiting in the kitchen. It’s great when the craving hits and you don’t have to go rummaging for something random (and full of sugar) to satisfy it. It’s nice to have a massive plate of fresh cookies just waiting for you to eat them. Now, how wonderful Read more
