The New Orleans

Mardi Gras is coming up this Tuesday, so our treat this week is in honour of New Orleans: a pralines and cream ice cream cake. You can see by my picture that I took this in a different direction, so let me first explain what this recipe is supposed to look like. The recipe as […]

Frozen Strawberry Cheesecake Pie

Strawberry Slice

While I may not have figured out my signature summer cocktail just yet, here’s my Summer Sixteen signature dessert. I made this two weeks in a row, and considering I hardly every make the same thing twice, it automatically qualifies. This is what’s happening in this four layer party in a pie plate: Graham cracker […]

Nanaimo Ice Cream Squares

Baked Sunday Mornings is celebrating Canada Day today by remixing a classic Canadian dessert: Nanaimo Squares. My Mom always made these at Christmas time when I was growing up, but many Canadian families (ahem, Danielle) enjoy them all year round. For my American friends, here’s a quick lesson. A traditional Nanaimo Square consists of three […]

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 […]

Fresh Mint Chocolate Swirl Ice Cream

A few summers ago, my friend Danielle and I both got really excited about these ice cream sandwiches on Smitten Kitchen.  I, personally, have some issues with ice cream sandwiches in general, mostly because my teeth are really sensitive and I can’t handle the thought of biting into ice cream. Also, because I hate it when […]

Malted Vanilla Milkshake

The rest of the team is making a semifreddo today, which I’m passing on for two reasons: It contains raw eggs. My friend Carole told me the likelihood of you-know-what contamination is very rare from the eggs we buy/eat from grocery stores, but it still freaks me out a little bit. My freezer is currently […]

Vanilla, Bourbon & Chocolate Milkshake

I was pretty excited to make this milkshake, as I thought it would be a nice break from some of the more time-consuming recipes we’ve made over the last few weeks (i.e. Bananas Cake, Turtle Thumbprint Cookies) for Baked Sunday Mornings. What could possibly go wrong with a milkshake? Well, it turns out the milkshake […]

April 26, 2014 Frozen

This week was Gastropost’s 100th Mission, and to celebrate, we got to create our own mission! I was thinking back to the first few Missions I did back in the summer of 2012, and of course when my thoughts turn to summer treats, that means only one thing to me: S’MORES! For my S’mores mission […]
