Baked Sunday Mornings: Derby Cookies

Derby Cookies

The Kentucky Derby has pretty much zero significance in my life. I think I watched it once, but it didn’t involve a big floppy hat or a mint julep which, in my opinion, are the two most appealing parts of this holiday. For Baked Sunday Mornings this week, the Baked Boys are running with the bourbon […]

Baked Sunday Mornings: Gingersnaps with Lemon Sugar

Gingersnaps with Lemon Sugar

Gingersnaps really aren’t my favourite type of cookie, and I don’t necessarily reach for citrus desserts, but I decided to give this week’s Baked Sunday Morning recipe a try anyway. I was mostly motivated by the fact that this is a one bowl, one spatula recipe, and it was really quick to mix up. The […]

The New Classics

It’s time for the recap of my annual Champagne & Cookies Christmas party! Last year there was a snowstorm on the night of the party, so I nervously started checking the weather about a week before, and it was nothing but clear skies. Hooray! Since I went on a little trip to NYC the weekend […]

Baked Sunday Mornings: Cinnamon Spritz Cookies

Cinnamon Spritz Cookies

I’m pretty picky when it comes to cinnamon. I tend to only really love it in warm, cozy fall recipes with pumpkin and apple (SOON!). I don’t really like it paired with chocolate, I’ll never add it to a savoury recipe, and my most hated cookie of all time is the dreaded Snickerdoodle. So I […]

My Favourite Buttercream

After almost four years of blogging, I’ve decided it’s unacceptable that some of my all-time favourite recipes still haven’t made it on my website. Things like my Mom’s Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins or my go-to Peanut Butter Cookies are missing, and I can’t let this stand any longer. So welcome to a new series of […]

Gingerbread, Sugar, Pecan Cookies

Every year I host a little Christmas party for my friends, where we eat cookies, drink champagne, and toast the holidays. It’s selfish really; in years past I used to make up cookie packages and deliver them around to everyone, whereas now, everyone comes to me! This little soiree is always BYOT, where the T […]

Chocolate Diablo Cookies {Planet Byn}

  Here’s the final treat I mixed up for my low-key day of Cinco De Mayo treats: a spicy chocolate chocolate chip cookie with cayenne and cinnamon. I saw this recipe in my Mom’s Chatelaine and thought I would give it a try; it’s from the Tacofino Food Truck, operating out of Tofino, BC. The […]

It’s Spring! Yay! I’m currently waiting for rhubarb to show up at the farmer’s market near my house, and rejoicing in the knowledge that fresh, local, delicious strawberries are only about a month away. I also busted out a neon coral blazer at work last week, wore open-toed shoes this week, and completed my annual […]

Hot Cross Buns

Happy Easter! I had an amazing Easter dinner tonight (preceded by an Easter egg hunt in my childhood park!) and am currently on the couch digesting, in disbelief that tomorrow is April 1st. Back at the end of February, I made one goal for March: Hot Cross Buns or BUST. They’ve been on my to-bake […]
