My Favourite Waffles

My Favourite Waffles

I was just re-reading some old monthly recaps, and in my January 2016 post, I mentioned that I had finally found a waffle recipe that I liked: “I’ve been looking for a basic waffle recipe forever! I need to make it a few more times before it reaches ‘My Favourite’ status, and then I’ll blog […]

Kale Caesar Pizza

September 16, 2016 Dinner

Alright, this isn’t so much a ‘summer dinner’ as a ‘dinner I made in the summer’, but it’s so incredibly good I have to share it. A good caesar salad is one of my joys in life, and if you’d like to read approximately 5,000 words on why, you can click here. I wrote that […]

Peach Dumplings with Bourbon Hard Sauce

Peach Filling

There’s really only a certain section of society that understands the importance of peach season. The citizens of Winona for one (Hi Alexis!) and my food blogging friends. It’s the most wonderful time of the year. I only had one item on my peach to-do list for 2015: dumplings or bust. Like most great successes […]

Baked Sunday Mornings: Cinnamon Spritz Cookies

July 27, 2014 Baked Sunday Mornings
Cinnamon Spritz Cookies

I’m pretty picky when it comes to cinnamon. I tend to only really love it in warm, cozy fall recipes with pumpkin and apple (SOON!). I don’t really like it paired with chocolate, I’ll never add it to a savoury recipe, and my most hated cookie of all time is the dreaded Snickerdoodle. So I […]

Baked Sunday Mornings: Banana Whoopie Pies

Banana Whoopie Pies

I think I’ve made every whoopie pie recipe that the Baked boys have included in their previous cookbooks. I made the Red Velvet ones for my sister-in-law back in 2010, the Pumpkin version as part of Thanksgiving dessert in 2011, and the Chocolate Whoopie Pies in 2012. Guess 2013 was a Whoopie Pie free year, but […]

My Favourite Buttercream

After almost four years of blogging, I’ve decided it’s unacceptable that some of my all-time favourite recipes still haven’t made it on my website. Things like my Mom’s Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins or my go-to Peanut Butter Cookies are missing, and I can’t let this stand any longer. So welcome to a new series of […]

Salted Caramel Shortbread Thumbprints

Too soon to start thinking about Christmas cookies? Not on Planet Byn! I just can’t help it! Things get so crazy in December that there’s no time for recipe testing, so I thought I would try out a few new cookies whenever I have a minute over the next couple of months. Last Sunday gave […]
