Orange & Spiced Peach Galettes

I admit, it’s been an embarrassingly long time since I last made a post. I’m sorry! There’s a whole long list of excuses I could use, but truthfully life just got busy, as it does for all of us, and I just lost track of time. But I’m back! And so is summer. And one…

My Dream Cookie

It’s happened. Finally. Something I’ve been working on, searching for, and pulling at my hair over, has finally happened. I’ve found my dream cookie recipe. Some people dream of finding their dream partner in life. I dream of the perfect chocolate chip cookie. This may, admittedly, be because I’ve already found my dream dude. But…

Madeleines

On the list of my favourite things to eat fresh out of the oven, madeleines are pretty high up there. For those who’ve never had madeleines before, they’re basically teeny tiny tea cakes. When made right they’re soft, fluffy, and delicious. Easy to eat way too many. There’s lots of recipes out there but this one…

One Bowl Chocolate Cupcakes

You know when you wake up sometimes, and you just think, “I’m not getting up today. I won’t. I will not. No one can make me.” And then you do. I’m just having one of those weeks where I need a couple bottles of wine, several days straight of sleep and maybe a foot rub…

Strawberries & Cream Puff Pastry and Pals

Let me start with a disclaimer that I have the cutest friends on the face of this earth. So be warned, this post contains many photos of some of the most adorable people you’ll ever see. I find as the older I get, the less time it feels like I get to spend time with…

Lemon Curd Cheesecake

  Can we talk about how expensive fruits and veggies are getting?! I was at the grocery store the other day and I would have had to sell my soul for a few avocados. Fruits are my favourite thing of all time. I’d choose fruit over candy any day of the week- and I’ve got…

Banana Bread

The weather here is still pretty cold and rainy. It’s that kind of damp cold that you can’t seem to shake, it gets right into your bones and only a steaming hot shower and cup of tea get get you feeling alive again. A while ago it got crazy stormy and most of Victoria got…

Buttermilk Biscuits

The holidays have come to an end, the christmas tree is being taken down and we’re all making our way back to work and school and the everyday grind. But you know what makes it all easier? That’s right, buttermilk biscuits. For Christmas I got a great little jar of jam to add to my…

Buttermilk & Cardamom Tea Pie

So I’ve decided that I need a Scottish Fold Munchkin kitten. Like, seriously guys, look: I would most likely need to take some sort of kitten version of maternity leave from work. There’s absolutely no way I could go to work everyday with that little face looking at me wondering why I was leaving. It’s…

Chai Snicker-doodle Cookies

Christmas is tomorrow and I kind of wish it wasn’t! It’s my favourite time of year, and I don’t want it to be over! The last couple days have been pure christmas bliss. Getting up early to go sit in warm coffee shops to eat scones and drink tea with my parents, long afternoons spent…

Lemon & Bourbon Vanilla Shortbread Cookies

It’s pouring rain here on the west coast, and I’m curled up on the couch, wrapped myself into a blanket burrito with a cup of tea and a little plate of lemon and bourbon vanilla shortbread cookies. This is my favourite time of year! It’s so cozy and festive. I love the holiday music and…

Spiced Pear & Blueberry Gallettes

Always use what’s freshest; your final product is only as good as your ingredients. Lucky for us, we have a pear tree in our backyard! This pear and blueberry gallette is so simple, especially if you buy the puff pastry, like I did. Shhh, it’s not as bad as you think. Since puff pastry consists…
