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 […]
Merry Christmas! I hope you are enjoying your day. We woke up to a beautiful sunny day with a fresh blanket of snow here at my in laws. It’s a white Christmas after all. Everyone has finally arrived now so I better sign off. Hope you have a great holiday!
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
If I haven’t already convinced you to make an edible holiday gift this year, maybe this recipe today will seal the deal. It has to be one of the easiest recipes to throw together using less than 10 minutes of precious holiday time. Plus, it’s a recipe you can make well in advance without having […]
So begins the time of the year when it’s totally acceptable to have a freezer bursting with cookies. There’s always something on hand for unexpected guests, not to mention evening nibbles while cozied up in front of the TV, which we’ve been kinda glued to lately (oops). My friends and family are about to be […]
