Sourdough Blueberry Brown Butter Crumble Muffins

I’ve tested the recipe for these sourdough blueberry muffins five times in the last month & a half.  f i v e.That is a heck of a lot of muffins. Three of the five bakes were for recipe tweaking – a little more sugar, a little 

Salted Maple Pie

Salted Maple Pie

Do you remember way back in November’s Monthly Musings post when I told you I was “low-key obsessed” with a new cookbook, Sister Pie? That was a lie. I was – and still am – much more obsessed than what could ever be described as “low-key”. 

Blood Orange Bundt Cake

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,

Gifting 101: Preserved Lemons

Can we talk for a second about gifting? I love to gift something extra thoughtful to loved ones, something that you can’t just walk into a store and buy. A batch of cookies, a bottle of homemade vanilla extract, a cute bag of homemade chocolate 

Chocolate Dipped Peanut Butter Cookies

Chocolate Dipped Peanut Butter Cookies

The Cookie Book was one of those books I stumbled across online and thought: why the heck not? What was a relatively unknown-to-me book before it landed in my hands one fateful Wednesday has since turned out to be one of my favourite cookbook discoveries.

Pear Spice Cake with Brown Butter & Dark Chocolate

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,

Do you enjoy a good spot of therapy baking? I therapy bake nearly every week. Let’s face it – it’s cheaper than actual therapy, and the resulting side effects are considerably more delicious. If you’re like me (aka: still saving up for that fancy KitchenAid 

Blackberry Pie Bars

Blackberry Pie Bars

Real talk: can you ever have too many pie bar recipes? The answer must be no, because on my blog alone we already have four variations. Apple & Raspberry, Pecan, Plum & Blackberry, and a very early recipe for Lemon & Blueberry. It’s important to 

Salted Chocolate Chunk Shortbread Cookies

Salted Chocolate Chunk Shortbread Cookies

Basically, I saw everyone else on the internet making Alison Roman’s salted shortbread cookies, so I made Alison Roman’s salted shortbread cookies. It was a real life Mean Girls moment, and I’m not even ashamed to admit it. I had a serious case of FOMO. 

Triple Chocolate Birthday Cake

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 

Cider Caramel Apple Pie

Cider Caramel Apple Pie

I know what you’re thinking: more pie? Can’t she even go four posts before blogging about pie again?  Well, it would seem that I can’t. Having said that, this isn’t just any pie – this is a cider caramel apple pie from Erin’s fabulous book ‘The 

Snow Day Chocolate Cake

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

The Dough Diaries: Cinnamon & Cardamom Knots

Friends, welcome to the final installment in The Dough Diaries! I’ve been saving this post as the last for two reasons. The first, this is was the recipe I was the most excited about making. As soon as I saw Izy Hossack’s recipe for Cinnamon 

Braided Apple, Blueberry & Cardamom Pie

Braided Apple, Blueberry & Cardamom Pie

It’s time to admit it: I am addicted to making pie. I can barely go a week without making some form or other. Double crust, single crust, pie-crumble hybrids, hand pies. Usually all-butter dough, but sometimes a buttermilk flavoured one. All types of fillings are

Kladdkaka – Swedish Chocolate Cake

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

Hello friends, welcome to a Gifting 101 segment! This time around, we’re whipping up a batch of Homemade Vanilla Extract for friends and loved ones. Can we take a moment to step back & think about how it’s nearly the fourth week in November. Where 

The Dough Diaries: Chocolate Babka

The Dough Diaries: Chocolate Babka

As promised, chocolate babka. Confession: until I started reading food blogs, I had never heard of a babka, chocolate or otherwise. This could be down to my sheltered Irish life, but babka was just one of those things that had never crossed my path before.

The Dough Diaries: Mini Challah Loaves

As soon as I decided to do a dough series, I started rifling through all of my favourite cookbooks. I’ve been on a mission recently to use my cookbooks more, & this was the perfect excuse to explore new recipes. I wanted to have a
