Hashtag Pie, Oh My! Chocolate Chip Cookies Instead


I was looking for inspiration to fuel a stint of pie making.  I figured a quick search on Instagram, maybe viewing a lemon meringue pie or an apple pie would get my creative baking juices flowing.  Pie is just pie, right?   After all the definition of pie is a baked dish of fruit, or meat…

Caramel Frosting


  First comes Caramel sauce, next comes Caramel Frosting (or icing as we call it here in Canada). Well, actually, first comes the sugar and water boiled to a beautiful amber colour and then comes the cream, etc. but believe me you will not be disappointed in this sweet smooth icing and the extra effort…

Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies


    I’ve always made my pb cookies with flour (See recent post for Peanut Butter Crinkle Cookies).  I came across this recipe in my pile of ‘I should try these recipes’ (doesn’t everyone have one of these piles or drawers or binders….) and gave them a whirl. With only 7 ingredients and one bowl…

Chocolate Scones


I’m bringing in 2018 with light tender chocolate chip scones.  These scones come together quickly, in a matter of minutes, and bake up in about 25 minutes.  So turn your oven on and get to work (well its not really any work at all).  I brushed the top of these with cream instead of the…

Chocolate Dipped Peanut Butter Crinkle Cookies


Peanut butter cookies are always a hit and these are no exception.  With the holidays upon us this recipe would be a great addition to your cookie tray for the peanut butter lover in your family. From ‘littleepicurean’ Maryanne Cabrerea’s recipe (Holiday Cookies 2017 Bake From Scratch) the only switch up I made was to…

Chocolate Chunk Oat Shortbread


Today’s recipe is for sweet and chocolately shortbread made with the addition of toasted oats.  The toasted oats add nutty flavour and crisps up the texture.  The addition of chopped chocolate just makes the shortbread more delicious. With the holiday season fast approaching and the weather getting colder shortbread seems to fit the bill!  Although…

Cookie Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies


The other day as I was standing over the counter licking my spoon clean from yet another dip into the Cookie Butter, or as some of you may know it, Speculoos Butter jar, I thought, hmmm, there must be a way to bake this cinnamony sweet goodness into a cookie!  Just like peanut butter or Nutella…

Pumpkin Cupcakes


Continuing where I sort of left off on last weeks blog (Spiced Pumpkin Loaf) , as I’m not one to use up my calories on pumpkin flavoured beverages, here is another scrumptious, simple and sweetenuf recipe containing the flavour of Fall…pumpkin. 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…
