Hello, friends! How are you keeping? I find myself in a near constant state of frustration these days, looking at people not wearing masks or social distancing. It’s just so irresponsible it bugs me right to the core. Thankfully we’re escaping to a secluded house

Happy Wednesday, friends! We’re celebrating the blog birthday today, would you like to join us? I mean, technically, the birthday was two days ago.. but we’re running on lockdown time, which is really such a different ballgame. Eight years ago, on April 27th 2012, I 

Blood Orange Bundt Cake

In the latest Monthly Musings post, I mentioned my blood orange addiction. We have thick wedges in the mornings as a kind of pre-breakfast appetizer – the two of us romantically standing over the sink with bright red juice running down our chins. Every morning,

Friends, hello! I’m sharing a cake today that is very close to my heart: Pear Spice Cake with Brown Butter Frosting & Dark Chocolate Drip. Every year, right around the beginning of Autumn, I make this Pear Spice Cake. It’s a welcoming ritual of sorts,

Because one type of chocolate is never enough to celebrate a birthday with. And guys, this birthday is a big one. Six years ago today, I made the decision to start my own food blog & created passionate baker. I threw myself head first into

Day 4. No work, no leaving the house, no telephone network, no sunshine. We are slowly but surely running out of milk & bread, we’ve exhausted our supply of cookie dough, and we’re down to our last bottle of wine. Things are pretty grim. The

Let’s jump head first into the new year. We’re just coming out of those murky days surrounding the holidays & trying to get ourselves back into working shape. There’s a long to-do list to tackle before the week is out, including – but not limited 

Strawberries & Cream Naked Cake

Strawberries & Cream Naked Cake

It took me a while to get into the whole naked cakes thing. They started popping up everywhere – food blogs, cookbooks, TV – and I honestly just didn’t get it. Even my mom has been asking why I bother with lavish decorations when a

If you follow me on Instagram, this Earl Grey Tea Cake is not new for your eyes to behold. Back in the day when I was a dedicated food blogger, a photo shared to my insta would have been quickly followed with recipe here. That

Welcome to part two of the apple fest! Part one saw us making some Apple Spiced Doughnuts, and this time I bring you cake! Glorious Rustic Apple Cake. It originally started as ‘Cinnamon Apple Cake with Browned Butter Frosting’, but thankfully I realised I needed a 

Indulgent Chocolate Cake

Okay, here’s the whole truth: today’s post was meant to be Blueberry Muffins from my fancy expensive cookbook, but somehow everything went horribly wrong. I burned the muffins, they got stuck in the tin and then fell apart when I tried to un-stick them. And

Here’s the thing: I love food. I especially love baked goods, anything to do with chocolate, fancy desserts, or anything involving ice cream. I eat everything, and it works out well for me because here’s the other thing: I run a food blog. Nobody wants

Just the other week I wrote about adulting, and how great it feels when you actually take control of your life. Well, I have been adulting all over the place lately. You know when you have a kind of vague idea of what you want

I already had a whole post about brownies lined up for this week, but then I remembered that Easter Sunday is this coming weekend. Now, as much as I love brownies, there is no possible way I could have twisted this particular recipe to have

I’ve recently become entirely obsessed with baking again. I mean, the obsession never really went away, more that it was kind of hiding just beneath the surface. I’m almost ashamed to admit that I can count the amount of things I’ve baked over the past

When do you really become an adult? Is it when you offer to host the Christmas dinner party in your house? Or is it when you spend over 7 hours (I kid you not) making lists of the different food possibilities you could make, the

I know. You got me. I left the blog to fend for itself. Again. So maybe we missed the month of October, but that’s only because I couldn’t think of anything good to bake for Halloween. It may also have had something to do with
