Carrot Loaf with Cream Cheese Frosting

My Dad doesn’t have much of a sweet tooth. I got my obsession for baked goodies from my mum and my mum only.

As such he rarely requests baking – in fact he rarely even eats dessert at all. So when he does I get a little giddy and waste no time jumping at the opportunity to bake him a little something delicious.

Such was the case the other day when I got a text from him saying, and I quote… “I think I could go for a slice of Carrot Cake topped with an inch thick of Cream Cheese Frosting right about now…” My Dad may not share my love for baked goodies, but if there is one thing we can agree on, it’s that cream cheese frosting is pretty much the best thing in the whole entire world.

Lemon Berry Olive Oil Cake

So if you follow me on Instagram, you will know that I fully ate three quarters of this cake all to myself. I went back for “just one more bite” about thirty times until the cake was just about gone, because I simply couldn’t help myself…

Do I have regrets about demolishing a cake in the span of a half hour that could easily have feed ten people? No, because that’s how good this cake is. It was absolutely worth every bite, and the subsequent trip to the gym the next morning for a gnarly work out sesh.

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! 

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.

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 favourite Pure Leaf Raspberry Iced Tea! 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 was nothing short of a dream come true.

It’s Canadian Thanksgiving in a couple of days, & I’m so excited to spend the day cooking and baking delicious food with my mom, while my brothers sneak bites of food and my mom and I pretend not to notice.

It’s going to be our first Thanksgiving at my parents new house & I can’t help but be excited about this being the first of many special Thanksgiving dinners that we will spend there for years to come. My parents bought a new dining table, that is large enough for everybody to sit comfortably around  – which is something of a change for our large family.

As I get older, I cherish more and more the times that the whole family can come together to enjoy a meal together & catch up on some much needed family time. So I’m really looking forward to Thanksgiving this year.

Happy Friday peeps!

I feel like I have been so MIA lately, so I have to apologize to you all. It seems like my recipe posts have been so few and far between over the past couple of months, and I really have no good excuse except to say that it has been a busy summer.

Not to mention I have been guilty one too many times of digging into all my summer baked goods before I get the chance to snap some good pictures to share with you guys……. I honestly can’t tell you how many times that’s happened this summer. Let us not speak of it & let me try to make up my lack of recipes with this pan of deliciousness instead 😀
