September on Planet Byn {2014}

September 30, 2014 Monthly Recaps
Apple Picking

I personally love September, and the whole ‘back to school’ of it all. Routines are re-established, cooking dinner starts happening again, and boots and scarves come out of hibernation. Unless you live in Southern Ontario, in which case it was hotter than the actual summer months around here. Here’s what happened in my foodie world […]

It’s Messy Baker Monday!!! Today a bunch of my blogging friends have gotten together to celebrate the new cookbook from our friend Charmian Christie.

We’re down to the last five recipes in Baked Elements, and our challenge this week is a Tunnel of Hazelnut Fudge Cake. Where’s the other half of the cake, you say? Here it is! Despite using my non-stick bundt pan and spraying the hell out of it, my cake still got stuck! I used an […]

I was just saying to someone yesterday that I often find that ugly desserts are the most delicious, and these muffins perfectly prove my point.

Candy Bar Cookies

We have some experience stuffing delicious things into delicious things over here on Planet Byn. Oreos stuffed into Chocolate Chip Cookies. Cookie dough stuffed into Cupcakes.

Brown Sugar Bourbon Ice Cream

Well, I thought we’d go out with a bang before it’s all Apples, Pumpkins and Pears* around here!  Since I started a new job right in the middle of the summer, it kind of upset my flow in the kitchen, and feel like I didn’t get to make as many pies, crumbles, popsicles and ice […]

Blueberry Cheesecake Ice Cream

It’s a weird time, weather wise, in the Greater Toronto Area. Last week I flipped over all my calendars to September, which triggered an automatic craving for a Chai Latte & Pumpkin Scone from Starbucks. I also had a pumpkin recipe for Baked Sunday Mornings on the agenda for last weekend, and I was pretty […]
