The 15 minute Pan Steak

Growing up I used to love BBQ.  How can any meat-loving person not love the smell of searing meat wafting into the fresh, warm air?  Well, since moving into an apartment I haven't been able to bust out a BBQ due to condo rules and regulations so I've had to adapt to the situation and learn [...]

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 [...]

Pan Brownies

Who doesn't love brownies?  Moist, chewy, chocolaty.... what more could any person want?  Besides a personal chef to make it for you of course.  Maybe brownies smothered in ice-cream and hot fudge? Alas, this is just the plain jane brownie, but plain jane is perfectly good on its own.  Like all my entries before this, [...]

Banana Bread

Banana Bread, the delicious saviour of far gone bananas.  This is another recipe that has been passed down to me through generations of my family which I am all too happy to share with all of you.  The soft interior crumb is encased in a crispy,  golden brown crust which is satisfyingly crunchy.  When sliced, [...]

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip

It's amazing how food can trigger so many memories.  The smell and taste of these are iconic to my childhood.  This recipe was originally my mothers, but she may have gotten it from my grandmother. I recently transcribed it from an old recipe card that was well-worn.  Vanilla and chocolate stains spotted the recipe and [...]
