Baked Sunday Mornings: Kitchen-Sink Dutch Baby

March 12, 2017 Baked Sunday Mornings
Kitchen-Sink Dutch Baby

Dutch babies are something that I had never heard of before I started reading food blogs almost 10 years ago. This isn’t something I ate growing up, and I unfortunately don’t have a cast-iron skillet that was passed down to me through the generations! For this reason, I usually bypass any and all dutch baby […]

Strawberry Cornmeal Griddle Cakes

When strawberry season rolls around, I’m usually too busy eating them fresh to bake anything. This year I tried out a couple new things though, and liked them enough to post here. First up are these Strawberry Cornmeal Griddle Cakes, which were a lovely long weekend breakfast. I actually had some corncakes for brunch when […]

Strawberry Rhubarb Breakfast Crisp

Strawberry Rhubarb Breakfast Crisp

This is hands-down the best summer breakfast you’re ever going to have. I started making breakfast crisps at the very beginning of this blog, when I adapted Smitten Kitchen’s Breakfast Apple Granola Crisp with an all-rhubarb version. Deb subsequently updated the recipe in her cookbook, and that’s been my go-to for the last few years. […]

Baked Sunday Mornings: Orange Pancakes with Honey Butter

Orange Pancakes with Honey Butter

I normally stay away from orange-flavoured recipes, but I made an exception for this breakfast. Last night I stood in the rain for two hours waiting for a TIFF screening, so I figured I could use some Vitamin C today, even if it was in pancake formation. The Baked boys are serving up these Orange […]

Nonnie

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 […]

Peanut Butter & Honey Granola

This week we’re celebrating another amazing cookbook, and this one is all about entertaining at home.

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. I’ve gotten to know Charmian through various blogger events over the past year and a half, and even attended the launch party for The Messy Baker Cookbook last month. That’s where […]

Cheddar Swirl Buns + A Smitten Engagement Brunch {Gastropost Mission #115}

August 9, 2014 Bread
Engagement Brunch

Our Gastropost Mission this week was The Art of Hospitality, which perfectly coincided with having my friends Nicole & Geoff over for brunch to toast their engagement. I thought this would be a perfect chance to make a bunch of recipes from the breakfast chapter of The Smitten Kitchen Cookbook, especially with Deb’s recent announcement […]

My Favourite Buttermilk Pancakes

My Favourite Buttermilk Pancakes

When I was growing up, pancakes weren’t a frequent breakfast option in our house, but when we did have them, they always came out of a box (sorry Mom!). I legitimately did not realize you could make pancakes without the box mix until I was like 23 and saw Christine Cushing make them on the […]

Baked Sunday Mornings: Honey Banana Poppy Seed Bread

Honey Banana Poppy Seed Bread

While the rest of my Baked Sunday Morning friends are making a truly terrifying Banana in a Blanket cake this weekend, I decided to make something a little easier. The Banana in a Blanket is a roll up cake, and I’ve never made one before and didn’t really feel like taking that on today.  So […]
