Strawberry Cheesecake Parfaits

This is the only recipe that was on my strawberry agenda for this Summer. I’ve flipped past it in The Smitten Kitchen Cookbook so many times, but it wasn’t until Danielle made them a couple months ago and sent me a picture that I became obsessed. She made them in little mason jars, and I […]

Rhubarb Cheesecake Blondies

Of all the baking I’ve done with rhubarb over the years, one of the things I’ve never paired it with is chocolate, and I wasn’t about to start now. I just don’t feel like that’s a good match AT ALL, which is why I swapped out the brownie layer of these squares for a blondie. […]

Baked Sunday Mornings: Pumpkin Swirl Cheesecake Chocolate Brownies

October 9, 2016 Baked Sunday Mornings

This recipe was one of the last ones I tested for Baked Occasions about three years ago! I can’t believe it was that long ago, and I also can’t believe how many recipes we’ve made out of the book! I’ll be so sad when we’re done; this is truly one of my favourite things. I […]

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 […]

White Chocolate Pistachio Cheesecake

In any office I’ve ever worked in, people go bonkers for free food. And not just delicious treats that I bring in; we’re talking leftover sandwiches from a lunch meeting, huge chunks of honeydew melon (you know that’s always the one section leftover from a fruit tray) or pizza ordered in for a team celebration. […]

I feel like you often hear that it’s hard to make friends as an adult. I haven’t really found this to be the case, but I work in a huge company and have switched departments twice in the past three years, so have had the chance to meet a ton of new people. While it’s […]

Last weekend I had a few friends over to usher in Spring and celebrate 5 years of blogging. Yes, yes, y’all, the return of the Blog-iversary Party! After my 1st Blog-iversary Party in 2011, I just assumed I would throw one of these every year, but you know, new jobs, root canals, and general winter […]

Baked Sunday Mornings: Chocolate Cheesecake Muffins

Chocolate Cheesecake Muffins

I was just saying to someone yesterday that I often find that ugly desserts are the most delicious, and these muffins perfectly prove my point. From the outside they don’t look like much; kind of a naked cupcake with something mysterious bursting out the sides. But like a lot of things in life, it’s what’s […]

Mango Swirl Cheesecake {Gastropost Mission #101}

Mango Swirl Cheesecake

The first time I made this cheesecake was either 2002 or 2003. I think I made it for Easter and it was an absolute disaster. I remember it leaked all over the bottom of the oven, resulting in a smoke filled kitchen. I remember the mangoes I used weren’t quite ripe enough, which I didn’t […]

Yes! It’s here! It’s COOKIE SEASON! Pretzel M&Ms have been bought, butter is being hoarded, and things are about to get real in my kitchen. As per our yearly tradition, Danielle and I have been swapping ideas for a few weeks now, and we debated our choices in a Google chat on the weekend, as […]
