Double Chocolate Cookies

The weekend is a time to do baking – at least that’s how I feel. I found this recipe in the newspaper and I was so proud cause I followed it to a tee which is something I don’t usually do.. I like to improvise usually. So those are chocolate chocolate chip cookies (double chocolate)….

Coconut Macaroons

No these are not fancy french macarons, these are delicious classic coconut macaroons. I was tired of just being sick and I got back in the kitchen, like I mentioned in my last post. If you like coconut, you will love macaroons. They are a classic passover treat but homemade is waaaaayy better than macaroons that come…

St Pattys Pinwheel Cookies

I’m going to a saint patrick’s day party this weekend so I wanted to do a little baking for the occasion. I’ve always wanted to make pinwheel cookies because I’ve never done it before. I knew it would be a little time consuming because of the rolling and freezing between stages, but I’m pretty happy with…

Raspberry Frozen Yogurt

Winter is the time for frozen treats – I love the irony of cold things in cold weather. This recipe was super simple with only 4 basic ingredients, then you can add whatever mixins/other flavours. All you have to do is mix plain greek yogurt, milk, honey and vanilla in a bowl then toss it…

Cheesecake Brownie Squares

Sorry if the title started to make your mouth water. Cheesecake and brownies are two of my favourite desserts and when combined, they go to a whole other level of yumminess. I actually got this idea from a video I saw on facebook for oreo cheesecake brownies. I didn’t have oreos but I thought I could…

Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

The key to good banana bread is lots of overripe bananas and sour cream. Well, you also need key baking ingredients like flour, sugar and butter, but everything together makes for a delicious result. I made this cake about 2 weeks ago, then made it again yesterday because it was so good. 

Ginger Molasses Cookies

I’ve made these cookies many times before, but not recently. This is the season of gingerbread and warm spices so I wanted to make these cookies again. It’s a recipe from Kathy Patalsky’s blog (Kathy’s Cookie Recipe). I love using this recipe but I always make a couple changes to it. I never put the…

Crustless Pumpkin Pie

I wanted a nice pumpkin pie, but at the same time, I wanted it to be healthyish. I was successful in finding a recipe! Chocolate Covered Katie (Crustless Pumpkin Pie) made this crustless pumpkin pie and I had to make it too. It was pretty easy to make and I followed the directions exactly as…

Dehydrated Kiwi and Strawberries

I’ve made apple chips before but I’ve ways wanted to try to make other dried fruits. I had so many kiwis in my house so I sliced those thinly, and I also sliced a couple strawberries for variety. I put them in a 170 degree oven for 2.5 hours at first and at that point,…

Almond Biscotti

I love biscotti. They’re such a good cookie and perfect for the holidays coming up soon.  I’ve made this recipe many times before from Canadian living recipes. The only changes I made to the original recipe was using slivered almonds instead of whole; and cooking them on their side (and flipping halfway) for the second…

Carrot Pulp Muffins

My dad loves to make juice and there’s always so much pulp that usually gets thrown out. This time, I wanted to use it. He made a carrot apple juice, so I used that (but any variety of fruit/vegetable pulp will work, but you could also just use the freshly grated things too).  I used…

Quinoa Cookies

I love little energy bites/cookies and it turns out that quinoa makes the perfect base. I had some leftover cooked quinoa from the dinner I made the other night (Mexican Tortilla Lasagna) and I mixed in other yummy ingredients then popped them in the freezer for a quick treat. To the plain quinoa, I added…
