Chewy Chocolate Peanut Squares

By Friday, August 15, 2014

These are actually the devil. I'm not a dessert person, but peanuts and chocolate? These are practically an Oh Henry bar. That you can make at home. Obviously I did not make these for My Other Half and I to consume ourselves. I made them for book club. I quickly found out they were too decadent to be ...

Margarita Mousse with White Chocolate

By Wednesday, May 21, 2014

This would have been the perfect Cinqo de Mayo recipe! Alas, I am the LEAST timely food blogger and totally dropped the ball. Whoops. We're not dessert people (we normally skip it), but when we have a dinner party, odds are one of our guests lives for dessert. I normally do something simple, focusing on the main ...

Breaking news: The best Amaretto Apple Crisp ever!

By Wednesday, November 20, 2013

This post was updated in January 2015 with new photography! Bet you didn't know amaretto is my favourite liqueur, did ya? I am sure you didn't. But if ya don't know, now ya know (and yes, I just quoted Biggie's Juicy. The rap song references are getting out of control). Seriously though, you will have a hard time ...

By Friday, November 15, 2013

This post was updated in November 2014 with new photography! You can add this to the list with lasagna, chili, manicotti...   ... because it's yet another classic dish I had never made. Weird. But I am SO GLAD I did! Pumpkin pie is super easy, especially if you're using canned pumpkin, which I did. I haven't ventured into ...

Mama’s Peach Pie

By Tuesday, September 25, 2012

Mothers are just always there for you, aren’t they? People think I’m nuts, but I talk to my mom every day – often multiple times per day. We chat about all the simple things in our lives. It makes me feel like I’m close to her, even though I’m really pretty far away. I’ve mentioned before that ...

Delicious Nacho Bake and Strawberry Cheesecake Turnovers

By Friday, June 10, 2011

This post was updated in January 2015 with new photography! With My Other Half coming home from a short vacation on Monday, I thought it would be nice to make one of his favourite things… i.e. anything baked with ground beef, cheese and a crusty topping. I was watching Best Recipes Ever, as  often do (although I ...

Perfect Apple Crisp

By Monday, November 1, 2010

Where do I even begin? As I lay here in bed on my laptop, I have so many wonderful “foodie” things to write about, but I can’t even fathom where to start. I guess the most logical thing would be to apologize to my followers for not blogging as much as I normally do this ...
