The epitome of a Double Chocolate Chip Cookie – ooey gooey with a crackly top, soft interior and packed full of chocolate flavour.
A last-minute Valentine”s dessert. Puff pastry pillows filled with warm vanilla pudding and drizzled with chocolate.
Chocolate cupcakes filled with chocolate ganache and topped with a rich chocolate frosting.
A white cake sandwiched with coconut lime curd and smothered in whipped strawberry frosting.
It took me four hours to get this coffee cake in the oven. This has no reflection on the difficulty of the recipe but rather my life as a mom. From exploding diapers to early bath times to bedtime tantrums this cake went through many waiting periods. I think it”s pretty safe to say it”s(…)
In all my time in Norway not once did I see a block of cream cheese. Spreadable cream cheese was everywhere but the one time I tried to make a cheesecake with it (in my desperation) it did not end well. Three years is far too long to go without a slice of cheesecake! So(…)
Merry Christmas! From my family to yours. I can”t believe that Christmas is this weekend. How did time go by so fast? This year will be the first year that our little family is totally alone for Christmas, I”ve come down with tonsillitis, the kids are fighting off their own illnesses and we”re between houses,(…)
Right now I”m in the middle of a big move – across the ocean. We”re tired, jet-lagged, nervous and excited. This Christmas will definitely be an interesting one, but we”re looking forward to it.

Truffles are one of my favourite things to make at Christmas time. They”re so adaptable and easy to make. Chocolate and hazelnut is a long time favourite pairing and I think it goes without saying that these are highly addictive. I had them stored away in the freezer and was finding myself sneaking one after(…)
This is a fun gift or activity for the child (or child-like person) in your life. An edible puzzle, to be decorated to your heart”s content and then eaten afterwards. Who says you can”t play with your food? These are a lot of fun to make and after snapping the above photo, I let my(…)
You know what Christmas treat I”ve missed most since moving to Norway? Eggnog. I”ve made my own, but so far I just haven”t found that perfect recipe. I used to practically live off the stuff when I was younger. That”s when you really knew that Christmas was on its way – when you saw cartons(…)
Sugar cookies shaped into the form of mini lattice-pie-crust tops. Aren”t they so cute! I first saw this idea on Pinterest and I immediately fell in love. It”s such a cute presentation of sugar cookies and dresses up any simple dessert or drink and turns it into something special. You can place them on top of(…)
