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(…)
You can’t start Sugar Cookie Week without a delicious recipe for sugar cookies. I know sugar cookies get a bad wrap for not being very flavourful and true enough they aren’t ever going to beat out a chocolate chip cookie for pure deliciousness, but they do beat it out for variety of what you can(…)
I can’t believe I’ve never made brown butter before. I knew it wasn’t difficult to do, this was just the first time a recipe I was making actually called for it. Now that I’ve tried it, I think I just might be addicted. I’ve heard it a million times, but it really is amazing what(…)
I came to a sad realization the other day. I’m a mom. Not that I AM a mom but that I act like a mom. I’ve even become a little bit boring (gasp!). Not to my 3 year old son, mind you. He thinks I’m hilarious. And, I only need to walk into the room to(…)

This cake comes together in one bowl with simple ingredients and results in a comforting moist yet fluffy spiced cake.
I know it may seem a bit presumptuous of me to put the word “perfect” in the title of this blog post but there are a couple of reasons why it’s there. The chocolate cake is light while still remaining moist and sturdy. Because the cake is sturdy it makes for easy decorating, trimming, etc.(…)
Have you noticed that changes that have taken place on the blog recently? It’s looking, decidedly, a lot more blog-like. I think it’s going to take a bit of getting used to but it’s a good change for me. Having the photos the way they were before severely limited the type of photos I could(…)
This banana bread is much more reminiscent of a cake – with its rich chocolate flavour and deep undertones from the coffee. It”s almost guaranteed to win over even the harshest banana bread critic. The deep chocolate look of this bread speaks romance to me. Although, the most romantic we got was to sit huddled(…)
These chocolate chip cookies are chockfull of nuts and stored in the fridge for an easy, sliceable, chocolatey treat that can be baked up in a flash.
