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 […]

Chai Chocolate Chip Cookies

Yes, we all agree that Pumpkin Spice-flavoured things have jumped the shark, and everyone is over it. I propose that we now move on to Chai Spice in our baked goods! It’s still in the same cinnamon/ginger/nutmeg family, but with a few additions: cardamom, cloves, allspice and black pepper. I love drinking hot chai during the […]

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 […]

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 […]

I was so, so excited to host Thanksgiving at my place this year! My middle brother and sister-in-law were away celebrating their 10 year wedding anniversary, so I was able to fit everyone else (7 grown-ups, 2 kids) in my condo. You know by now that I took this very seriously, and it was basically […]

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 […]

Baked Sunday Mornings: Brown Butter Apple Galette

Brown Butter Apple Galette

Last December I made a bold declaration on this here blog of mine: I was done with apple pie. I had finally had enough after making Saveur magazine’s Salted Caramel Apple Pie for Christmas, and was ready to put that out into the world. I often have trouble with pie in general, mostly because I […]

Mini Pumpkin Muffins

Hooray! It’s pumpkin time! I feel like I showed excellent restraint in waiting until October to crack open my first can of pumpkin. Last year I was away for a lot of October, so I didn’t really make a dent into my Pumpkin Pinterest board, so I’m making up for lost time now. The first […]

When I returned from my various travels at the end of October, I still had a crisper full of Empire apples from my trip to Chudleigh’s. I didn’t feel like making apple butter, but needed another recipe that would use up the rest of my beauties before they started to take a turn. I immediately […]
