December 2017 desktop calendar

It’s the last month of 2017! Can you believe it? I am literally counting down the days until I can stop working, at which point I will be drinking eggnog for about 2 weeks straight. Not kidding. Of course, December has just begun, which means we’ve all got another 3 weeks or so of work […]

Apple butter pie - Stencil pie with powdered sugar to give it a lacy pattern

Apple butter pie

I have what you could call “pie anxiety” or perhaps it’s more appropriate to call it “pie-making anxiety.” See, I never feel like my pies are good enough, and I always tend to wonder if my pie crust recipe could use a little extra tweaking. I worry about such things as pie dough cracking, ease […]

Baked chocolate donuts

I’m moving in three-ish days so I’ve gotta make this brief. Sorry! I still haven’t packed anything. I’m still trying to sell furniture. I’m trying not to panic. Yikes! Things are clearly going well, hah! I literally can’t see what life is like after the move. Is that weird? Like I can’t picture being settled. […]

Savoury pork & apple hand pies

This post is sponsored by Maple Leaf Natural Selections. I want to be the woman who makes everything from scratch for every recipe and every meal.

Pear and chocolate scones

This post was sponsored by Cacao Barry. I have a love-hate relationship with scones. Most of the time, when I buy scones from the average cafe, they are… mediocre. Am I allowed to say that? Whatever. I just did! I can’t be the only one who feels this way. I pretty much avoid scones when […]

Double chocolate zucchini muffins with Cacao Barry chocolate

Double chocolate muffins with zucchini

This post was sponsored by Cacao Barry. Back to school: three words that make children and adults cringe. Growing up, I was undoubtedly sad to see summer vacation come to an end with all the freedom, relaxing, and leisure reading that summer brings. But I was usually quite excited about the prospect of a new […]
