  • Caramel Popcorn

    December 19, 2017Ann

    I love popcorn, but aside from the cinemas (and Garrett’s, of course), it’s almost impossible to find halfway decent tasting ones. My son’s at the stage where he’s a popcorn maniac and every movie on Netflix calls for popcorn. Most microwave popcorn brands contain partially hydrogenated oils, artificial colours and flavourings, and preservatives. Yikes! Which,…

  • Rich and Creamy Hot Cocoa

    December 15, 2017Ann

    Hot chocolate is made in many different ways, with either cocoa powder or chopped chocolate being the primary ingredient. Personally, I’ve never fancied cocoa powder in hot chocolates. Often lacking the crucial silky smooth finish and don’t get me started on the clumps. Ugh. But then I discovered Hershey’s Cocoa Powder. It definitely is a great…

    Incredibly simple to make, this light and delicious cranberry pie pairs perfectly with a scoop of vanilla ice-cream. Cranberry goodness surrounded by a lovely cake-like consistency. I personally love how the almond flavouring really bringing it all together for this pie.

  • Classic Light and Moist Brownies

    December 5, 2017Ann

    Are the best brownies dense and fudgy, or crumbly and earthily chocolatey? A chewy brownie is moist, but not quite as gooey as a fudgy one. The key to keeping regular brownies moist is usually loads of butter or other fat. To ensure a nice fudgy texture, take care not to overbake. I like them…

  • Christmas Chocolate Sugar Cookies

    November 28, 2017Ann

    Cookies are my favourite thing ever to bake. I wish I posted more cookie recipes than I have been. Providing a title for this recipe was a slight challenge. It’s like a sugar cookie, which is often called a butter cookie, occasionally goes by as a roll-out cookie, which really, is a cut-out cookie, which is then usually…

  • Chocolate Crinkles Cookies

    November 24, 2017Ann

    Chocolate cookies rolled in powdered sugar and baked until perfectly chewy, what’s not to love about them? Here is my recipe for undoubtedly fudgy double chocolate crinkle cookies. With a little extra chocolate for good measure! 😉 These have an irresistible brownie centre, with a crunch of cookie on the outside! Even a generous dusting of…

  • Mixed Berry Pie

    November 21, 2017Ann

    This mixed berry pie always gets raving reviews. It holds together perfectly, every time. I make it any time of year, with fresh or frozen berries and I often play around with my berry combination by baking with just about any berries found in my kitchen. Beautiful berries are piled into a homemade pie shell, covered…

  • Chocolate Fruit Cake

    November 17, 2017Ann

    Rich, inviting and quietly festive, I like to make this cake in advance and wrap them in foil until the day before serving. Don’t let the long list of ingredients or longer baking time fool you. You don’t have to do much more than bung them in a pan and stir, and that too for…

  • Christmas Stollen or Christstollen

    November 14, 2017Ann

    The first time I ever tried Stollen was at a cafe with my sister back in the early 2000s. The ugly bread she was excited to order, turned out to be absolutely delicious! Of course, years later, I no longer find it ugly. In fact, I love the rustic-winter pretty it adds to my table.…
