Salty Honey Pie

Salty Honey Pie

I’ve seen this recipe for Salty Honey Pie on so many blogs over the past few years, and have always been intrigued by it. It sounded kind of weird, but kind of like Crack Pie, but also maybe like a butter tart with honey instead of corn syrup. When Kristine and I went to Cake […]

Hummingbird Cake

Baking layer cakes is pretty much like therapy for me. I can rush my way through a batch of cookies or make a pan of brownies practically with my eyes closed, but layer cakes demand time, patience and love. We have a few coming up on our Baked Sunday Morning schedule and I can’t wait […]

Yesterday I celebrated the wedding of my dear friends Aoife & Brad at Vinelane Estates Winery in Niagara, Ontario. I brought home a bottle of red wine and whipped these up this afternoon because I knew they were on our Baked Sunday Mornings schedule. Ha! You guys know me better than that by now! In […]

I’m super excited to share this quick and easy recipe today! *insert sound of record scratching here* APRIL FOOL’S! I can’t even keep up this charade as a joke. Let me take a minute to explain. On my 5th blog-iversary, a mean internet troll my brother left me a comment that said: “Meh. The continuing lack […]

Lemony Jelly Roll

I’m so sick of complaining about the weather. We’re pretty much at the end of March, and have barely had temperatures above zero here, much less in double digits like I’m normally hoping for this time of year. I seriously can’t wait for Spring which I feel will bring me an improved mental state that […]

Baked Sunday Mornings: Chocolate Texas Sheet Cake with Peanut Butter Frosting

Texas Sheet Cake

Texas Sheet Cake isn’t really a thing up here in the Great White North. I hadn’t heard of it until about 2008 when I started reading food blogs, and saw The Pioneer Woman’s recipe. Her recipe is a thin chocolate cake that you top with a boiled chocolate and pecan frosting, and it’s supposed to […]

When you see a Baked layer cake on the Baked Sunday Morning schedule, you really have to evaluate your life and decide if you have time to bake it, and can fit it into your schedule. It also helps to find a family event or someone’s birthday on your calendar to give you an excuse […]

Baked Sunday Mornings: Cinnamon Chocolate Soufflés

Cinnamon Chocolate Souffle

This is the second Baked Sunday Morning in a row where I was nervous about the recipe. I’ve never made a soufflé before, and actually now that I think about it, I don’t think I’ve ever eaten one before either. The only thing I knew was that they’re notorious for deflating or sinking if you’ve […]

I’m very emotionally invested in the birthdays of my co-workers. If I know it’s your birthday, and you’re in the office, there will be treats on your special day. I don’t care if you won’t tell me the actual day (I celebrate birthmonths too), or don’t want to disclose your age (irrelevant to birthday treats) […]

Peanut Butter Chocolate Whirligigs

I was a little nervous about this week’s recipe.  A few weeks ago Matt posted an interview with one of the recipe developers he and Renato work with for their cookbooks, and she specifically name checked these cookies as the most difficult recipe she has developed for them. Uh oh. It turns out they weren’t […]
