Pumpkin Cupcakes

If you didn’t see this weeks Instagram (sweet_enuf) here is how to make your…

Spiced Pumpkin Loaf – Let the Holiday Baking Begin!


True confessions…I believe I may be one of the few people who don’t go over the moon when the PSL hits Starbucks.  I’d much rather have my pumpkin in a moist, sweetly spiced muffin or cake or loaf or scone and I don’t waste my ‘indulgence’ calories on beverages.  And a grande Pumpkin Spice Latte…

Blueberry-Pumpkin Muffins


It seems everywhere I go people are gearing up for Fall.  The Labour Day weekend hasn’t even passed yet and I’m seeing snow suits in stores and magazines full of ‘Fall’ recipes. Although I’m definitely not ready for cooler weather and I will hang on to summer until 11:59 pm on Labour Day a pumpkin…

Sweet and Salty Cookies


Besides being deliciously sweet and a little salty these cookies are a great way to use up some of those ‘little bits’ of the sweet and salty items hanging around your kitchen. My quick to be devoured cookies contained a Wunderbar, some sea salt Caramel baking bits, salted peanuts and a few dark chocolate chips….

Fudgey Brownies


Today’s fudgey dense and sweet Brownie recipe is super simple.  So easy you may want to make a batch for dessert tonight to serve with a scoop of ice cream or a little whipped cream.  If you can, pick up some Ontario strawberries. Slice on top of the ice cream or whipped cream and you…

White Chocolate Blueberry Scones


These light and slightly sweet delicious scones can be made with raspberries or strawberries.  I think almost any fruit in season would work with this simple recipe. My fruit of choice today is wild blueberries, you know the small sweet blueberries requiring no cutting, peeling or pitting!  Only in season during July and August my…

Peanut Butter Butterfinger Biscotti


  Butterfingers in a biscotti you ask?!  Superb I say…with the addition of crunchy peanut butter these cookies are amazing. While my friends were shopping for the essential food items to keep us going for our next few days of vacation in Florida, I headed straight for the baking aisle!  Never mind about fruits and…

Peanut Butter-Nutella Coffee Cake


This drab and dreary weather calls out for something sweet and fun to help fight the urge to stay in bed and hibernate.  Who wouldn’t want to get out of bed for a piece of delicious coffee cake combining not only peanut butter and Nutella but having the added crunch of praline nuts and a…

Orange Chocolate Scones


These Orange Chocolate Scones are the perfect breakfast or afternoon tea accompaniment for this Easter weekend or any weekend for that matter. I made these light and flaky scones one weekend and the following weekend packed up the ingredients to whip them up while out of town on a ‘girls’ weekend.  They come together quickly…

Hazelnut Streusel Bread


Other than your basic baking ingredients, flour and sugar, etc. you need a food processor, which you don’t even need to wash between steps, and some hazelnuts to whip up this light, tender and tasty Hazelnut Streusel Bread. Streusel in the middle and on the top and the addition of chocolate chips will make this…

Brownie Cookies


I have never met a Brownie I didn’t like.  Whether cakey, chewy, marbled, full of nuts or not, a Brownie is always a great sweet treat option. I’m not sure whether I can honestly say these  brownie cookies surpass the allure of a big Brownie square calling out to be consumed but since these cookies…

More Maple Scones – Oatmeal Maple Pecan,Oh My!!


I notice I’m on a maple and brown sugar roll lately.  Quite a few of the recipes I’ve been posting contain brown sugar or maple and today is no different.  (Note:  Not that I think this is a bad thing…) The scones (which, have you noticed, seem to be the new cupcake, as in there…
