Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Loaf

Welcome to a brand new round of Baked Sunday Mornings! Since the Baked boys don’t have a new cookbook out, we’re throwing it back to their very first book, Baked: New Frontiers in Baking. I learned about this book when I started reading Smitten Kitchen and bought it sometime in 2009 or 2010. I actually blogged about […]

Peppermint Chocolate Chip Meringues

I can’t believe this is our last recipe from Baked Occasions! I also can’t believe it’s been three years since the book came out and I went to NYC for the launch party; truly one of the best days of my life! We’re finishing up the book with these Peppermint Chocolate Chip Meringue Cookies. I actually […]

Poop Emoji Cupcake

Yes, dear reader, it has come to this. When I texted my niece to see what kind of cake she wanted for her 10th birthday, all I got back was a line of poop emojis. I quickly did a google image search, and sure enough, they are all over the internet. I sent her back […]

Old-School Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

I already have an Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe that I love, but I was still looking forward to trying the Baked Occasions version this week. This is a pretty standard cookie recipe, with a few exceptions: Instead of adding the rolled oats whole, you grind the majority of them up in a food processor first […]

I think I’m ready to declare that Valentine’s Day is my favourite baking holiday, or at least tied with Easter. There’s no pressure, no expectations, and if I can spread some love with treats, well that’s my joy in life anyway. I haven’t blogged my Valentine’s Day baking in the past, with the exception of these […]

My niece Rebecca keeps surprising me with her Birthday Cake selections. Last year she asked for a Shimmer & Shine cake, and this year, even though she still loves all things princess, she asked for Darth Vader Cupcakes. I asked my brother how she even knows who he is, and apparently they watched a couple […]

I didn’t think I needed to start off this post with a description of what a Cookie Exchange is, but evidently I do, since I had to explain it to about six of my co-workers this week. So before we get into the details, a brief lesson: a Cookie Exchange is a gathering/party where each person in […]

Baked Sunday Mornings: Chocolate Cinnamon Sugar Cookies

This week for Baked Sunday Morning, we’re baking Chocolate Cinnamon Sugar Cookies. They’re actually supposed to be Chocolate Cinnamon Chipotle Sugar Cookies, but I wasn’t too keen on that. I have enough problems with mixing chocolate and cinnamon together, so I just left the chipotle powder out. The dough for these cookies was easy to […]

This post is a long time coming, but I’m excited to finally be writing about my trip to London last November! It was my first time travelling to Europe, and I was equal parts excited and nervous leading up to the trip. I went with my friend Danielle, who is an accomplished world traveler and […]

This is our third brownie week in row for Baked Sunday Mornings, but I’m not mad at it (okay, maybe just the first ones). These Milk Chocolate Malted Brownies are far and away my favourites of the trio. They’re everything a brownie should be, which is rich and fudgey with a deep chocolate flavour. I […]
