I always talk about my favourite posts of the past year and food goals for this year during my blog-iversary in February, so instead I’ll tell you about the one major, life-changing resolution happening on Planet Byn. For 2013, I have resolved to do all the dishes before I go […]

Honey Yeast Rolls + Hot Turkey Sliders {Gastropost Mission #20: Bonus Mission}

October 9, 2012 Bread

The theme for our Gastropost Mission this week was FEAST which was timed to coincide with Thanksgiving weekend. This couldn’t be more perfect for me, as my Mom’s turkey dinner is my #1 favourite feast and my desert island/death row meal. I LOVE IT. It always includes the following: turkey, stuffing, gravy, mashed potatoes, and […]

Whole Wheat Garlic Knots

May 3, 2012 Bread

Thought it was about time to tackle another baking project with yeast, after making those soft pretzels for the Superbowl back in February. I feel like I’m really getting the hang of the whole process, although I still need to start with a clean kitchen and a deep breath before beginning.

Soft Pretzels 1.0

February 9, 2012 Bread

Cinnamon sugar soft pretzels from Auntie Anne’s are one of the small joys of my life. One of the only upsides to getting a connecting flight vs. direct through the states, is that I get to have one as my layover snack, which is just lovely. (Except you Miami International, wtf?! I had a eight hour layover […]

Cinnamon Rolls

January 14, 2012 Bread

My track record with yeast has not been that great. I thought I had things under control when I made pizza dough back in the summer, but then the next time I made it the dough was too wet, and on the third attempt it was too dry. I hate wasting ingredients, so I was […]

Red Bean Chili + Jalapeno Pepper Jack Scones

November 13, 2011 Beef & Pork

I’m new to the chili game – this is not something my family ate growing up. My Mom hates beans, and as my Dad likes to say: “If Mom hates it, we don’t eat it”. Because of this, I was never a bean eater either, and never had experienced chili until I made this recipe a couple of […]

Pizza Dough

August 14, 2011 Bread

One of the blog-olutions I made in February on my 1st Blog-iversary was to finally tackle my issues with yeast this year. Something about it has always made me nervous, and it’s always been one of the things I’ve been reluctant to take on in the kitchen.

Buttermilk Cheddar Biscuits

April 6, 2011 Bread

Here are the biscuits that I brought to Alexis and Nick to go along with their Carrot Ginger Soup. Biscuits are the kind of thing that once you get a knack for it, are easy to make, and also completely adaptable. For this recipe, you could add chives or green onions, maybe some crumbled bacon, or […]

Chuck Hughes in Mississauga + No Knead Bread

November 15, 2010 Bread

So it was already a good foodie week for me a couple of weeks ago after meeting Matt and Renato from Baked at Yorkdale. The next day I found out Chuck Hughes would be at Walmart in Mississauga on Saturday afternoon. Kind of random, but obviously a must attend for me.  When my co-workers and […]
