I’m super excited for the holidays this year! It feels as if December snuck up on me, and I’m not ready for the holiday season, but nevertheless, I’m excited for the end of the year.
This holiday season, instead of fruitcake or a bottle of wine, give meaningful gifts that support the world. An Ipsos poll conducted in 2017 on behalf of World Vision Canada found the majority of Canadians (58%) would appreciate a charitable donation being made in their name, instead of receiving a traditional holiday present. World Vision […]
This Red Velvet Bundt Cake with it’s rich cream cheese filling is the Christmas cake recipe of your dreams. Delight your guests with this fun, easy to make and totally delicious cake. Last Christmas (I think, because time flies by way too fast doesn’t it?) I received a gorgeous bundt pan that I’ve been wanting […]
I know, I know, I have been MIA. Life has been doing weird and wonderful things to my body and brain so I just stopped putting pressure on myself for a while. It’s been a lovely break but my urge to bake and create is emerging again, plus I have realised I have missed blogging. […]
Almond Poppy Seed Bread Homemade moist almond loaf with sweet almond glaze and candied almonds I grew up watching my Mom and Grandma spend hours in the kitchen baking for those they love. I would slip on my Mom’s red checkered apron, climb on the stool, and would gladly take my post as their official taste […]
It’s been an absolute age since I’ve last blogged. The intention has been there! In fact there are eight posts in draft form but I’ve decided to sideline them for now and do them later when I have more time. I realised it was six months since my last post! SIX MONTHS? How did that […]
So I’ve had this Apple Butter Bread recipe ready to go for a while, but the pictures were unbelievably challenging to take. It’s truly a gift – being able to make a brown loaf of bread look beautiful. Everyone else on Instagram seems to be able to do it so much better than me. I […]
So, guess what? In last week’s post I said that rather than wait for the autumn weather to kick in before I started posting ‘autumn recipes’ and comfort food, I would just start baking & posting autumn recipes and let the weather catch up to me later. This week, the temperature dropped around 10-15 degrees […]
My favorite holiday! This year I’ll be spending it up north with my Munchkins (as I call my grandsons, Marshall and Clint) so it will be extra fun. My daughter Liz posted this video of a recipe for “pizza skulls” which basically looked like big pizza rolls made in a skull shaped mold. And I […]
Chef Angela Cicala’s newsletter from anticoitaliantravel.com hit our inbox and we immediately needed to bake her Walnut Cake recipe. For those of you who have not had the pleasure of tasting Chef’s desserts, they are delicate and nuanced, and never too sweet. (You can currently take classes with her at her home, and will be […]

This post is sponsored in conjunction with AppleWeek . I received product samples from sponsor companies to aid in the creation of the AppleWeek recipes. All opinions are mine alone. Apple cornbread gets a sweet-tart flavor from grated green apples. Use Nordic Ware’s apple cakelet pan to make adorable apple-shaped individual servings.
Balsamic Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Apples are sweet, just a little bit tart and plain old delicious! Thank you NordicWare for these beautiful roasting pans which made it so easy to roast these Brussels sprouts! As always all opinions are my own. When I was younger I could not understand how anyone could eat Brussels […]
