Pumpkin Cinnamon Swirl Bread

Pumpkin Cinnamon Swirl Bread

I’ve really been trying to attack my Pumpkin Pinterest board this Fall, and this Pumpkin Cinnamon Swirl Bread has been my white whale. It’s not really something you can throw together at 10pm (my usual baking time these days), so I needed a day with no plans to make it happen. And a couple of […]

Pumpkin & Chocolate Chip Crumble Cake

We’re currently going through a major change at my work. Last week, we moved to a brand new office without cubicles or assigned seating. It’s totally open, and you can sit wherever you want. There are different types of workspaces depending on what you need to do that day, for example, collaboration spaces, a quiet zone, […]

Cinnamon Sugar Apple Muffins

Apple picking was the last thing on my mind this September due to the sauna-like weather we were having around here. When I finally got it together to check the Chudleigh’s schedule last week, I learned that Honeycrisp season is long gone (those are my favourite variety), but Fuji, Mutsu and Ambrosia were still available […]

I know there’s no topic more boring than the weather, but it’s really messing up my baking vibes this Fall. This should be the time of year where crisp, cool breezes are coming through my open windows, a pumpkin-scented candle is burning, and I’m happily in the kitchen baking the the day away. Instead, the […]

Baked Sunday Mornings: Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Loaf

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 […]

Baked Sunday Mornings: Old-School Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

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 […]

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 […]

Baked Sunday Mornings: Pumpkin Swirl Cheesecake Chocolate Brownies

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 […]

Sweet Potato Scones

When Danielle and I went to Atlanta last year, one of the places we went for brunch was Highland Bakery. It was actually my least favourite meal of the weekend, but it was saved by one special thing. We bought little mini sweet potato scones from the bakery case up front to snack on while […]

~ Champagne & Cookies 2015 ~

December 29, 2015 Cookies
Classics

Someone asked me last week how many cookies I make in December. I replied that I usually make about 10 different types of cookies, but she came back at me wanting to know the total volume. I guessed about two dozen of each type, so somewhere in the neighbourhood of 250 cookies. The look of shock on her […]
