Fact: This is my first blog post in almost a month. Clearly I am the worst “blogger” ever.
Truth: I have been feeling totally un-creative lately… is that a word un-creative? Probably not – let’s go with un-inspired instead. I have been feeling totally un-inspired. I feel ridiculous saying this by the way. I mean how silly is it that I couldn’t even manage to post a recipe for a simple batch of cookies in the span of a month? But seriously don’t ask me that, because I don’t have anything close to a good answer to that question.
So instead I thought this might be a good time for some real talk today… how do you feel about that? No worries if you’re not into it, you can always skip down to the recipe – I won’t be offended. But for those of you who are still with me, here goes…
You guys… I have just four words for you. Chocolate. Chip. Snack. Cake. I honestly don’t know what else to say – other than you need this cake in your life. The flavours are so simple & it’s so easy to make, but it’s probably one of my all-time favourite cakes. Honestly, to say that I love this cake with all my heart, would be an understatement.
Did someone say homemade soft pretzels…??? Yup – brace yourselves because this is happening people.
So I know the idea of homemade soft pretzels probably sounds incredibly time consuming, difficult and all around like something you don’t want to make at home – but trust me when I say this; Making homemade pretzels is actually super easy & totally worth the effort of making them at home!
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.
If there was one dessert I know I can always count on to please a crowd at a viewing party- it would without a doubt be homemade chocolate cream pie. There is just something truly magical about putting creamy, velvety smooth chocolate pudding into pie form & these Mini Lindt Chocolate Cream Pies are a testament to that.
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 😀 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?
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.
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.
Happy Saturday lovelies!
I can’t believe how quickly December is flying by! Before we know it Christmas will already be here. Do you have all of your shopping done? Somehow this year I have managed to get ahead of the game (which is not the normal circumstance).
Happy Friday friends!
Can you guys believe we are already into the second week of December!? I can’t believe how fast the time is flying by – before we know it, Christmas will be here!
