Warming Beans and Greens Soup

Not that the weather hasn’t already made it abundantly clear, but I’m here to announce that it is winter. And it isn’t going away. The holidays always seem to trick us and joke that surely the wintery and cold weather stops at the end of New Years  – but then January and February comes around….

Brunch and Book Club

Questing for fluffy challah, and soaking it in eggy mixture to be fried on the stove brings warm nostalgia to my heart. I can’t say whether it’s the challah, french toast aspect or simply cooking for other people that I love the most – but it’s absolutely my favourite way to start the day. In…

Lemon Meringue Pie (Yum)

If there’s one thing I adore doing – it’s baking for a friend. I think being able to present someone with a creation of sugar and confection that you made with your own bare hands is potentially the best thing in the world. I slaved over this, it says. I want you to eat the…

Roasted Sweet Potatoes, Turkey and Brownies

Sometimes, I’m social and do dinner with friends. Surprise. Shock. Awe. I know! Me?! Social and doing things outside of my comfort zone on occasion. It’s enough to make anyone have a minor heart attack. Though then again, this “dinner” was with one friend, and we sat around drinking wine while I enjoyed myself cooking……

Holiday Season Blondies

Around Christmas, I always find myself in the kitchen baking as much as I possibly can. It’s so much fun to gift your little brownies, blondies and cookies to all of your friends (and more baking = better baking). This week… I found myself making blondies: perhaps god’s greatest gift to man. Luckily it was…

Sour Cream Chocolate Chip Scones

Chocolate Chip Scones There is practically more pure and innocent in this world better than the wafting small of freshly baked scones in the oven while you sip on cinnamon-nutmeg flavoured tea. Practically Nothing. The one thing better may be sitting in in a large oversized sweater while feeling the chocolate chips melt in your…

The Ultimate. The Best. Cinnamon Rolls.

I have no qualms about admitting this is not my recipe at all… and I did not alter it. This is 100% from Food52’s Erin McDowell. I do not own any of these tips, tricks, and this is starting to sound like a fanfiction disclaimer, isn’t it? In essence, it kind of is. I am…

Caught From Around the Web

In lieu of anything especially exciting this week (minus my dad visiting… but I’ll get to that later), I’m doing a quick roundup of some of my favourite blog posts, recipes, and anything that I think you all might find interesting. Let me know if this is something you’re into and I’d be happy to…
