The New Orleans

Mardi Gras is coming up this Tuesday, so our treat this week is in honour of New Orleans: a pralines and cream ice cream cake. You can see by my picture that I took this in a different direction, so let me first explain what this recipe is supposed to look like. The recipe as […]

Nanaimo Ice Cream Squares

Baked Sunday Mornings is celebrating Canada Day today by remixing a classic Canadian dessert: Nanaimo Squares. My Mom always made these at Christmas time when I was growing up, but many Canadian families (ahem, Danielle) enjoy them all year round. For my American friends, here’s a quick lesson. A traditional Nanaimo Square consists of three […]

Toasted Marshmallow Milkshake

When this recipe was posted on Smitten Kitchen last year, I was with Danielle in Atlanta and for sure said “I’m making this as soon as I get home!”. Well we all know what happened after that: two weddings, one case of bronchitis, and major summer fruit FOMO meant there wasn’t a lot of time for […]

Brown Sugar Bourbon Ice Cream

Well, I thought we’d go out with a bang before it’s all Apples, Pumpkins and Pears* around here!  Since I started a new job right in the middle of the summer, it kind of upset my flow in the kitchen, and feel like I didn’t get to make as many pies, crumbles, popsicles and ice […]

Blueberry Cheesecake Ice Cream

It’s a weird time, weather wise, in the Greater Toronto Area. Last week I flipped over all my calendars to September, which triggered an automatic craving for a Chai Latte & Pumpkin Scone from Starbucks. I also had a pumpkin recipe for Baked Sunday Mornings on the agenda for last weekend, and I was pretty […]

Fresh Mint Chocolate Swirl Ice Cream

A few summers ago, my friend Danielle and I both got really excited about these ice cream sandwiches on Smitten Kitchen.  I, personally, have some issues with ice cream sandwiches in general, mostly because my teeth are really sensitive and I can’t handle the thought of biting into ice cream. Also, because I hate it when […]

Vanilla, Bourbon & Chocolate Milkshake

I was pretty excited to make this milkshake, as I thought it would be a nice break from some of the more time-consuming recipes we’ve made over the last few weeks (i.e. Bananas Cake, Turtle Thumbprint Cookies) for Baked Sunday Mornings. What could possibly go wrong with a milkshake? Well, it turns out the milkshake […]

This week was Gastropost’s 100th Mission, and to celebrate, we got to create our own mission! I was thinking back to the first few Missions I did back in the summer of 2012, and of course when my thoughts turn to summer treats, that means only one thing to me: S’MORES! For my S’mores mission […]

Slutty Brownie Ice Cream

I thought the Slutty Brownie craze of 2012 ended with the birth of Jessica Simpson‘s little daughter, but lo and behold, she got pregnant again, and Gaby posted this pretty amazing Slutty Brownie Ice Cream cake back in the Spring. I was out on the cake idea (too hard to cut, won’t fit in my […]
