Blood Orange Cardamom Cake

Happy 2017 friends! How is everybody doing? I feel like I have been completely MIA lately. You guys keep asking so nicely for recipes and I keep failing to post them. I’m sorry!Ā 

I know I’m the worst, but I’m trying to redeem myself here with this one because you guys …this cake. I am at a loss for words because seriously… This. Cake. I’m in love with it.

Ever since blood oranges started showing up in my market I have been telling myself I need to baking something with these colourful beauties & I finally got around to it this past weekend.

Mulled Apple Cider Donut Holes

Happy New Year’s Eve lovelies!

Are you all excited and ready for 2017? Do you usually make New Years resolutions? I have to be honest and say that I usually don’t do this – mostly because I have never been very good at goal setting and I am even worse at actually sticking to my resolutions.

However, despite my terribly track record in the New Years resolution department, I love hearing all of the wonderful goals people set for themselves. I really admire the thought and dedication it takes to come up with them and of course to actually stick to them.

Hmm.. all of this resolution talk is making me want to set one for myself. So this year I think my resolution will be to eat more donuts … yes, now that seems like a resolution I can stick to šŸ˜€ Maybe not your traditional healthy resolution… but I feel like we could all use some more donuts in our lives. Are we on the same page here?

Raspberry Tea Cupcakes with White Chocolate Frosting

Hello friends! I hope you are all enjoying the holiday season & all of the delicious homemade cooking and baking that comes along with it!

As I have mentioned before, holiday baking is one of the biggest joys in my life. I just love baking with all of the warm spices and vibrant colours that come with the season.

So naturally when Pure Leaf reached out to me about teaming up to re-create one of their recipes for the holiday season, I could not have been more excited. I immediately knew my recipe would have to include my favouriteĀ Pure Leaf Raspberry Iced Tea!Ā Then because in my mind white chocolate and raspberry are pretty much a match made in flavour heaven; these Raspberry Tea Cupcakes with White Chocolate Frosting were a recipe choice that wasĀ nothing short of a dream come true.

Holiday Chocolate Bark Madness!

Okay so I may have gotten a little carried away with the Chocolate Bark this year… and by “a little” I mean a lot. It started off with just one batch of delicious bark, and then I just couldn’t stop thinking of all the different flavour combinations and all the different possibilities of deliciousness. Before I knew it, my kitchen counters were literally covered in different flavours of chocolate bark; each amazingly delicious in their own unique ways.

Peppermint Bark Double Chocolate Donuts

img_6424So here’s the deal guys – it’s a good day today. You know why? Because it includes donuts – Ā and as far as I’m concerned, any day that includes donuts is pretty much the best kind of day. Especially when they are moist, double chocolate donuts that have been sprinkled with an ingredient that pretty much just screams holiday cheer. And you all know how excited IĀ feel about the holiday season.

When Williams-Sonoma approached me about creating a recipe using their delicious OriginalĀ Peppermint Bark, my mind immediately went to one place; donuts. But not just any old donuts – Fudgy chocolate donuts that would be dipped in a creamy chocolate glaze &Ā sprinkled with chunks of dark and white chocolate bark studded with crunchy peppermint goodness. Yup – we went there. #BARKYEAH baby!

Apple Fritters with Maple Cider Glaze

img_5633

If you were to ever ask me what my favourite donut is – I would tell you that it’s hands down an Apple Fritter. No if’s, and’s or but’s about it. I will never, EVER say no to an apple fritter. Doesn’t matter what the circumstance, if there is an apple fritter up for grabs, I am game. Like even if I just ate an entire turkey, with a side of mashed potatoes and gravy, and was deep in a food coma… I would still have room for an apple fritter.
