The favourites I’ve blogged about to date have been pretty basic recipes that I’ve made countless times (buttercream, pancakes, muffins). Today I’m getting a little more trendy with my favourite Salted Caramel Sauce. I wanted to dedicate a post to this because like the buttercream, it’s on the blog, but buried as a component of […]

Castle Birthday Cake

Last Spring, shortly after her brother’s Front-End Loader Birthday Cake, I asked my niece what kind of cake she wanted for her birthday, and got a request for a Princess Cake. My first vision was of one of those creepy cakes with the Barbie stuck in the middle (just do a google image search for Barbie […]

Project: Popcorn

July 3, 2012 Candy

  I’m not sure I’m ever going to have the occasion to make 120 cups of candy-covered popcorn again in my life, but I thought I would document the process here just in case!

Chocolate Dipped Sponge Toffee + Chuck Hughes at the Gourmet Food & Wine Expo

December 4, 2011 Candy

Erin and I went to the Gourmet Food & Wine Expo a few weeks ago, mostly to see Chuck (we’re on a first name basis, he follows me on Twitter). The Expo itself was something I had a feeling I would either absolutely love or truly hate; do you want to guess which one?

Christmas at Target

November 24, 2011 Bakeries & Restaurants

Sometimes I wonder if Americans realize how lucky they are to be able to go to Target anytime they want. I feel the same way about Trader Joe’s, though I have never been there. I’ve visited the Trader Joe’s website many times searching for my closet location. Detroit, I see you. I’m coming for you.

Easter Candy Bark + Homemade Cream Eggs

April 25, 2011 Candy

Hope everyone had a great Easter weekend! I didn’t really have any holiday candy-making plans until I saw this linked on PW last Tuesday morning, and I knew I had to make it. It’s the same thing I had going on at Halloween, except with some coloured candy melts swirled in that makes it extra cute. […]

Coffee Toffee + A Gluten-Free Holiday Jam

December 19, 2010 Candy

Last week I had a few co-workers over for a little Holiday get-together. Barry, Jill, Rebecca, Shane & Paulette came over after work to check out my new place, eat some snacks and treats and gossip about work. Since Jill eats gluten-free, I did a little advance planning to make sure everything would be wheat-free, as […]
