Apple Cider Caramel Corn + Thanksgiving 2016

October 25, 2016 Candy

I was so, so excited to host Thanksgiving at my place this year! My middle brother and sister-in-law were away celebrating their 10 year wedding anniversary, so I was able to fit everyone else (7 grown-ups, 2 kids) in my condo. You know by now that I took this very seriously, and it was basically […]

My Favourite Salted Caramel

October 12, 2015 Candy
Salted Caramel Sauce

The favourites I’ve blogged about to date have been pretty basic recipes that I’ve made countless times (buttercream, pancakes, muffins). Today I’m getting a little more trendy with my favourite Salted Caramel Sauce. I wanted to dedicate a post to this because like the buttercream, it’s on the blog, but buried as a component of […]

Mint Chocolate Chip Marshmallows

October 23, 2012 Candy

After many failures and a few triumphs with frostings and fillings, I finally received an A+ in Marshmallows 101 this summer. Because I was wrapped up with summer fruit and other s’mores concoctions, they never actually made it on the blog, but I was pretty excited to have achieved this milestone. Homemade marshmallows have been […]

Peanut Butter Cheesecake Ball

September 18, 2012 Candy

So I finally joined Pinterest after rolling my eyes about it for the last year or so. I was adamant that I didn’t need another time suck in my life, but then I came to the realization that it would actually help me organize all of the recipes I have bookmarked at home, at work, jotted on […]

Project: Popcorn

July 3, 2012 Candy

  I’m not sure I’m ever going to have the occasion to make 120 cups of candy-covered popcorn again in my life, but I thought I would document the process here just in case! This was for my childhood friend Marlena’s baby shower. We got to chatting back in April at Nicole’s house, and she asked if […]

Baked Sunday Mornings: Chocolate Marshmallow Cups

April 8, 2012 Baked Sunday Mornings

Ah, homemade marshmallow. I love you so much, but you never work out for me. Last summer I had two pretty epic marshmallow failures on a couple of s’mores projects (cupcakes + pie), so I was a little nervous going into this week’s Baked Sunday Morning selection.

Peanut Butter Cups

December 27, 2011 Candy

Merry Christmas! Hope everyone had a nice holiday. I’m currently marathoning Season 5 of Friday Night Lights, but I rolled off the couch to check in here with a quick update. I’ll be posting a recap of my Champagne & Cookies Christmas party shortly, but in the meantime, here’s an actual voicemail that I received […]

Chocolate Dipped Sponge Toffee + Chuck Hughes at the Gourmet Food & Wine Expo

December 4, 2011 Candy

Erin and I went to the Gourmet Food & Wine Expo a few weeks ago, mostly to see Chuck (we’re on a first name basis, he follows me on Twitter). The Expo itself was something I had a feeling I would either absolutely love or truly hate; do you want to guess which one?

Easter Candy Bark + Homemade Cream Eggs

April 25, 2011 Candy

Hope everyone had a great Easter weekend! I didn’t really have any holiday candy-making plans until I saw this linked on PW last Tuesday morning, and I knew I had to make it. It’s the same thing I had going on at Halloween, except with some coloured candy melts swirled in that makes it extra cute. […]

Coffee Toffee + A Gluten-Free Holiday Jam

December 19, 2010 Candy

Last week I had a few co-workers over for a little Holiday get-together. Barry, Jill, Rebecca, Shane & Paulette came over after work to check out my new place, eat some snacks and treats and gossip about work. Since Jill eats gluten-free, I did a little advance planning to make sure everything would be wheat-free, as […]
