Peanut Butter Cookies

We all have our favourite cookies in my household.  Mine are the Hazelnut shortbread.  My older son loves the chocolate chip toffee cookies and my husband loves the Almond lace cookies. My younger son is a huge sweets fan, but when it comes to peanut butter, he can’t seem to get enough.  He takes after…

Gingerbread Cookies

I started making these cookies a few years ago when one of the ladies that I worked with asked if I could make her some gingerbread boys and girls for her daughter’s Christmas party.  I wanted to make sure it was a soft enough cookie for little kids to want to eat them, but still…

Chocolate Butterscotch White Chocolate Chip Cookies

Phew, that is a long name for a cookie, but it’s worth it, I swear!  These cookies are almost brownie-like on the inside.  They also have a secret ingredient! It’s that time of year again, for me to start prepping for Christmas, and with that comes dozens upon dozens of cookies which need to be…

Sugar Cookies

The funniest thing, I was going to make something for my husband to take to work for Halloween, when he came home from work and advised me that the guys at work were wondering if I was going to make them something for Halloween. Now, with it being Halloween, it had to be creepy (though…

Buttermilk Biscuits

For all of our holidays, I’m forever buying biscuits in a tube.  There’s nothing wrong with that, it’s what I grew up with.  My boys love them, my husband loves them, and lets be completely honest, they are so east and stress free. I’ve made biscuits in the past, which are also extremely easy to…

Happy Thanksgiving!

I spent the past few days putting this cake together, from making the modelling chocolate, to baking the cakes and the pie (which is in the centre between two layers of cake) and then about 4 1/2 hours today putting everything together.  I believe altogether I spent about 12 hours on these cakes, but the…

Pumpkin Pie

My love for pumpkin pie goes back to my childhood.  I was that strange kid who was so excited when Fall hit because that meant Pumpkin pie and Egg Nog!  I remember being so excited to have both for my birthday and all my friends looking at me like, “what?  No cake?”  After that we…

S’mores

We always had “wagon wheels” when I was younger, which are basically s’mores.   Even now, every once in a while my husband will buy a box.    We’ve been on vacation this week, and with all the forest fires still going in B.C. Our air quality has been pretty bad here, to the point…

Mom’s Birthday 

I try to make Birthday cakes for my family when I can, so this year I planned ahead.    I’ve wanted to try making Sugarveil for a while now, but it’s so expensive I’ve usually just passed over it.   Well I got some on sale, so that was a sign for me.   Needless…

A Birthday Cake

A few years ago I made a Birthday cake for my sister’s roommate.   He loves his superheroes.    He requested Batman. So, after four years I offered to make his birthday cake again.   I was gonna do Batman again, but he really wanted Deadpool.   So, Deadpool it was! I’m so happy with…

Kaiser Buns

Unfortunately, last month very unexpectedly the German bakery that my family (my grandparents, my parents, my sisters and myself) have all been going to for at least 44 years shut down. There was no prior notice, just one day it was gone. We were all sort of in shock, as this is where I would…

Happy 150th Canada!

Just a little cake for Canada Day!   Triple layer vanilla bean cake with raspberry filling and a maple buttercream.
