When Mother Nature gives you a rainy, dreary weekend in October, I say dive into Halloween prep. Look online for costume ideas, troll the dollarstore aisles for decorations, buy a massive pumpkin, and make candy bars. You’ll be feeling better in no time! As a kid, I always loved Crunch Bars. There’s just something about […]

It’s a spin off my popular Pumpkin Pie Smoothie for Two and as much as I love the previous smoothie, this one wins by a landslide. This version today is also […]

Instead of working behind the camera like I usually am, earlier this week I was in front of my favourite photographer’s lens working in a beautiful kitchen with a handful of recipes from my book.

Frankenstorm. Earthquakes. Halloween parties. It has been quite an active weekend out there. I hope you’re all keeping safe! Nothing too crazy is happening (yet) weather-wise in Southern Ontario, just days of relentless windy rain and many more looming ahead.

Homemade Crispy Twix Bars

muhahauha I don’t know why, but that just felt appropriate to open with being 6 days from Halloween and all. Evil cackles are the perfect compliment to many situations, don’t you think? Such as: – When you’re bored at work and want to make coworkers think you’re up to something (aren’t you always??) See Dwight […]

I must have been really excited to share this post with you yesterday because while I was in the early stages of writing the post, I decided to hit publish instead of save draft. It was really no big deal and I quickly marked the post as private and it disappeared from my blog. Whew. […]

What about you? For the next Halloween recipe in my Treat-a-thon series, I made a healthier version of Rolo caramels. Instead of making a traditional caramel, […]

3-Ingredient Halloween Apple Bites

This has to be one of the easiest Halloween treats in all of Halloween treat-making history. I’m really not a crafty person when it comes to making holiday things, but these were almost fool proof. Note the word almost! Eric and I did a “test run” one night last week and we could not stop […]
