When I sat down to write this post about my friend Francis’ 1st birthday party, I realized I’ve documented all the major events leading up to this milestone: his parents’ engagement party, his mom’s wedding shower, and of course his baby shower! The theme for Francis’ party was Under the Sea, based on his love […]

Lemon Blueberry Layer Cake

Easter Cake

Last year’s Easter Cake was a work of art, in my humble opinion. Three layers of marble cake with Nutella filling, speckled buttercream frosting and cute little chocolate nests with mini eggs on top. I mean, come on. It doesn’t get much better than that. I couldn’t decide what to make this year, and I […]

I’ve been operating on a two-month delay over here when it comes to summer fruit, but luckily just caught the end of blueberry season a couple of weeks ago. I made that amazing Blueberry Buckle, but was dreaming of this Blueberry Custard Pie; a mash-up of the Blueberry Pie I made two summers ago, and […]

We’re at the tail-end of blueberry season where I live, so this week’s assignment is just in time! This is another one of the recipes I tested for Baked Occasions about two years ago, but I was happy to make it again. Santa also brought me a new tube pan last December, so I was […]

It’s Messy Baker Monday!!! Today a bunch of my blogging friends have gotten together to celebrate the new cookbook from our friend Charmian Christie.

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 […]

Aunt Shirley’s Blueberry Coffee Cake

Aunt Shirley

Blueberries have really gotten the short end of the stick here on Planet Byn. I’m not really sure why, as I can remember baking various blueberry cakes over the past few summers, but I haven’t blogged about them, or ever done a blueberry series here. That’s ending this week! It might have something to do […]

Food Network Canada has started showing Barefoot Contessa episodes again on Sunday mornings at 10am, and I just can’t get enough. After Anna Olson’s show Sugar, BC was my #2 obsession when I started watching Food Network over 10 years ago. I loved everything about Ina: her house, her cooking, her entertaining style, and of […]

Blueberry Lattice Top Pie

  Last Summer when Danielle was visiting, we caught an episode of Bake with Anna Olson, where Anna proceeded to blow our pie-making minds. Every belief we had about pastry making was challenged. After hearing for my entire pie-making-life that everything has to be freezing cold, especially the butter, Anna said it was okay if […]

Blueberry Lemon Yogurt Loaf

September 5, 2011 Cakes, Cupcakes & Icing

At certain times during the month of August, I found myself daydreaming about cinnamon, apples and pumpkin. Then I got an email from Starbucks about the return of the Pumpkin Spice Latte. Then I saw Halloween cards in Shoppers Drug Mart. I’m a HUGE fan of fall, but come on! Summer produce is still in […]
