Baked Sunday Mornings: Chocolate Chip Cookies

April 7, 2019 Baked Sunday Mornings
The Baked CCC

I can’t believe that I’ve had the Baked: New Frontiers in Baking book FOR TEN YEARS, and have never made the Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe! Blasphemy! That’s why I was so excited when our Baked Sunday Mornings group announced we’d be going back to the Baked boys first book; there are still so many recipes […]

Baked Sunday Mornings: Oatmeal Cherry Nut Cookies

Oatmeal Cherry Nut Cookies

You will never, ever catch me eating an Oatmeal Raisin Cookie. I’m not against raisins per se; they have their rightful place in the bottom of butter tarts and these Carrot Cake Breakfast Cookies I’ve been making lately. But for whatever reason, I just will not tolerate them in an Oatmeal Cookie. The Baked Boys […]

~ Champagne & Cookies 2018 ~

December 14, 2018 Cookies

This year was the biggest Champagne & Cookies yet! This was the first time ever where everybody who I invited could make it (except for one!) and I didn’t even realize how many people would be coming until I started unpacking the champagne flutes and realized I didn’t have enough. Oops! It was busy and […]

Monster Cookies

I really haven’t been able to keep up with the Baked Sunday Mornings crew this year, which makes me quite sad. Now that things have settled down with my work life, hopefully I can get back on track. Plus I have a whole new group of recipe tasters/testers to impress! And here we have the […]

The New York Times Chocolate Chip Cookie

September 5, 2018 Cookies

I wrote the other day about how much I loved the Netflix movie To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before, and this summer I also read the book, plus it’s two sequels. You don’t really see it too much in the movie, but in the books, a huge part of Lara Jean’s life is that […]

Citrus Poppyseed Cookies

Citrus Poppyseed Dough

I’m currently facing a disaster of epic proportions at my job: my new team does not eat baked goods. And I’m not talking about the one person who’s gluten-free, the one that’s lactose intolerant, or the other one that’s doing an elimination diet. I’ll bring tasty treats to our weekly team meeting, and maybe three […]

Super Bowl Cupcakes + Football Cookies

February 7, 2018 Cakes, Cupcakes & Icing
Fly Eagles Fly

My friend Kristine and her family are die-hard Eagles fans, so when their team made it to the Super Bowl this year, stakes were high. For me that is, because she ordered up a dozen cupcakes for their Super Bowl party, that needed to be “midnight green and say Fly Eagles Fly”. So much pressure! Not […]

Baked Sunday Mornings: Black Forest Chocolate Cookies

Black Forest Chocolate Cookies

Our assignment this week for Baked Sunday Mornings was a batch of Black Forest Cookies. The Baked Boys took the classic Black Forest flavours and turned them into a cookie with lots of chocolate, dried cherries and white chocolate chips. Personally, I’m anti-Black Forest everything, and you can read more on that here, from when we […]

The Classics

Every part of my annual Champagne & Cookies Christmas party fills me with so much joy. I love spending the weeks leading up to it finalizing my baking list, stocking my freezer with treats, and then finally sharing them with all my friends. This is truly my favourite holiday tradition, and it just keeps getting […]

Pretzel Linzers with Salted Caramel + Smitten Kitchen in Toronto (again!)

Pretzel Linzers

Smitten Kitchen has a new cookbook out! I’ve really tried to curtail my cookbook acquisitions over the last couple of years, but obviously I needed to have this one. I bought it when I went to see Deb on her cookbook tour back in October. She didn’t do an interview or Q&A like last time, […]
