Chocolate Macaron & Bailey’s Ganache

I was trying to come up with a fun name for this recipe.  Something about drunken cookies, or Super-duper Bailey Oreos.  However, as entertaining as those names are they don't do these cookies justice.  Something as simple as putting booze into a cookie makes it that much more yummy.  I hope you all agree, or [...]

Hazelnut Hot Chocolate

A good cup of hot chocolate is a must need for everyone.  Especially those of us who live in colder climates, where a hot drink is needed to stave off the chills of the day.  This recipe is basically hot chocolate on overdrive.  A rich, Nutella-y, chocolatey drink fit for any king or queen.  The [...]

Spelt Croissants

As most people are quite aware, the Burrito is an iconic staple in Mexican-American cuisine.  Where it originated is not entirely known, with stories of its [...]

Le CarPeaCho Cookies

This is my take on the SumB*tch cookies from the How I Met Your Mother series.  Taking the classic elements of Caramel, Peanut butter and Chocolate, mixing them together and reveling at the results. What I love about these, is that the "cookie" part of this creation is pretty much a brownie.  A fudgy and [...]

Coconut Lime Bars

This past weekend I was updating my summer playlist when I came across an older song that I hadn't heard in years.  The song was Coconut by Harry Nilsson - "You put the lime in the coconut and drink them both down."  I began to immediately sing along to the catchy lyrics, putting the song [...]

Chicken Curry

Curry is my ultimate comfort food.  Its delicious, simple, nutritious and I simply love the aroma as it cooks.  The blend of spices wafting through the air of my tiny apartment will bring an instant smile to my face. As with my previous curry recipe, I make a distinction between flavour and heat when I [...]
