As the year draws to a close, I’ve been thinking a lot about this space and what I can do in the new year to challenge myself (and hopefully you) in new ways. It probably doesn’t come across this way on the blog, but I often struggle with questions like – What am I doing […]

You know, I didn’t think we were going to have a white Christmas this year, but boy was I sure wrong. Murphy’s Law: You will get a snow storm right before you make the long drive home in your car that sucks in snow. Murphy’s Law #2: Your car battery will die with a trunk […]

Cookie Dough Nut Butter & Double Cookie Dough Balls

cookie dough-8645

Doesn’t this look like a big bowl full of cookie dough? Well, it’s not…exactly. It’s nut butter that tastes very similar to cookie dough. I made this cashew macadamia nut butter for my sister Kerrie and my cookie-dough lovin’ niece and nephew. After clenching the jar for a few awkward seconds, my sister was finally […]

Lightened Up Magical Coconut Bars

Lightened Up Magical Coconut Bars-8721

Magical Coconut Bars were always one of my favourite dessert squares growing up, next to Nanaimo bars. In my younger mind, the sweeter the dessert, the better. The words “too sweet” just weren’t in my vocabulary back then.   Fortunately, for my body (and cavity-prone teeth) I outgrew this mindset, embracing lighter, slightly earthier versions of […]

Chunky Cinnamon Raisin Nut Butter Recipe

maple cinnamon raisin nut butter recipe-8572

I’ve been on a total nut butter gifting spree lately. By the time I’m finished rattling all these nuts in my food processor, I may need a very strong hearing aid. Eric is convinced I’m slowly going deaf, so I guess covering my ears for dear life while processing nuts isn’t helping much. These things […]

Ultra Creamy Mocha Hot Cocoa

Lately, our favourite thing to do at night is go look at Christmas lights. Now that we live in a city again, it’s much easier to find rows and rows of houses all lit up within walking or driving distance. On warmer evenings, we bundle up in our cold-weather gear and head out for a […]

Edamame Hummus

edamame hummus -8538

I don’t say this often, but I occasionally reach my tolerable upper limit for sweets. After working on the dessert chapter for my book while simultaneously creating holiday cookie recipes for the blog, these words have come out of my mouth more than a few times lately. You know what I can’t eat too much […]

Vegan & Gluten-Free Florentines (almond lace cookies)

vegan florentine cookies lace-8499

I’ve been sitting on this recipe for almost a full year. How does that even happen? The truth is, I made these cookies on January 1st 2012 (I know, what killer timing to make cookies), but I figured posting a cookie recipe on the first day of the year was akin to posting a salad […]
