When Nicole & Geoff came over for brunch in the summer, they mentioned that they wanted to throw a big engagement party in the Fall, but not just an engagement party, a PIG ROAST! This has been something Nicole’s been wanting to do for years, and they were so cute and excited as they asked […]

Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp Squares

We had a big day here on Planet Byn last week. After exercising remarkable restraint for a whole month, I brought treats into my new office for the first time.  Based on some life advice from my baking spirit guide (Danielle: “You can’t show up on the first day with a six-layer cake”), I decided […]

For our second recipe of Janelle week, we’re having S’mores Rice Krispie Squares. I’m a sucker for anything involving the holy trinity of milk chocolate, graham and toasted marshmallow, and so is Janelle. I made these for two reasons: 1) She was mad at me because I got a new job and will be transferring […]

Baked Sunday Mornings: Bale Bars

Bale Bars

Bale Bars. Otherwise known as: No-Bake White Chocolate Caramel Peanut Butter Pretzel Bars. That’s a lot going on for this simple looking bar. They’re incredibly sweet, and I have to admit I’m not sold. I feel like they would be a better combined with something else; maybe layered on top of brownies (like these), or […]

It’s coming. Christmas cookie season. Time to make Pinterest boards, hoard butter, sign-up for cookie exchanges and send out a Save the Date for Champagne & Cookies IV. I can’t wait!  Truth be told, I’ve been working on my Christmas cookie list since September, but don’t worry about that. I still have a few Fall […]

Last week one of my new friends from work threw a rager to kick off the long weekend right! Ha, not really a rager but it was a super fun night. Obviously I had to bring treats to dazzle everyone, and also to make sure I would be invited to any and all future parties. […]

Mint Chocolate Chip Rocky Road Squares

Mint Chocolate Chip Rocky Road Bars

Although I’m obsessed with the S’mores flavour profile (marshmallows + chocolate + graham), the same can’t be said about the whole Rocky Road thing (marshmallows + chocolate + nuts). No logical explanation for that really; I’ve just never really been drawn to Rocky Road recipes. Until this one! I’ve had these squares bookmarked (and now […]

Cookie Butter Roundup

November 27, 2012 Bars & Squares

As I mentioned the other day, the most anticipated item from my Trader Joe’s haul was Cookie Butter. Everything I heard and read about it had me super excited and curious about the magic that would be unleashed when I cracked open a jar. First, let me try my best to describe Cookie Butter: it […]

Baked Sunday Mornings: Heartland Turtle Bars

August 26, 2012 Baked Sunday Mornings

  It’s been a hot minute since my last Baked Sunday Morning! Mostly just because of other baking projects I’ve had going on this summer, plus the fact that these recipes tend to be so involved, and sometimes you just don’t feel like spending a lot of time in the kitchen during a nice sunny […]
