Boston Cream Pie | With maple syrup + cream cheese

Its July! Here we're dealing with an extreme heat wave. The past two weeks it's been between 28°to 40°, and I can't handle it. I really hope it will pass soon because of the humidity here it's hard to breathe and it's dangerous to the health.
How was your Canada day? Mine was lonely as we had friends that were moving and my parents went to help and I wasn't able to go. So I was home alone *sigh*Thought the next day we went to a park we had never gone too and it was gorgeous.

Chocolaty Brownies | Recipe

Last weekend it was a three day weekend and so I decided to use it both wisely (I joined Twitter!) and (unfortunately) unwisely. I read a novel, which felt like I hadn't read forever, I knitted and baked!! I had the munchies for chocolate and sugar for the last couple of days and so I took advantage of the time and decided to make my brownie recipe.

This recipe differs somewhat from others because it does have milk and it is not as solid/hard as other recipes and it has lots of chocolate. It is delicious since I had a solid (1pound!) chocolate bunny from Easter I shredded some to add to the brownies before, during and after.

Ukrainian Honey Cake | Spring Dessert

Hello March!

So this week is Spring Break and so I will try to write more posts for the future. But before that, I have this great recipe to tell you all about.
I can not believe its March! By jolly February went fast. Did you watch the Olympics? Anything exciting happened in February? Anyway, March means we're getting closer to S P R I N G.
I found, tried and loved this recipe that I found, and changed it to my specifications (I took out somethings, like the walnuts) The Ukrainian honey cake is a spring recipe perfect for Easter.
Fairly easy and the ingredients are all we have in our kitchen. It can be decorated if wished.

Pistachio Pudding Trifle | Dessert

So this past week my family was hit with the flu and oh my! 
I missed school, had a fever and *sigh* that was not fun. So after everyone got better I decided to 'celebrate' by making a cake. I had a set of mixes and ideas, things that I wanted to do but didn't know how. 
And then I came up with: Pistachio Pudding Trifle.

Chocolate Cake with a Secret | Beets

Today I bring you a cake with a secret ingredient that your children will eat without thinking twice.
What is the secret you may ask, it is something that kids do not often eat: beets. I found this recipe tried it out, adjusted it and loved it. It is a great winter recipe, something to fill up that void that comes with the never-ending cold, and snow.
The only hard/time task is the boiling, peeling of the beets. Other than that it is pretty easy to make.

Hot Chocolate Marble Cake | Quick and Easy

Happy Tuesday! 
How was your week? The temperature? Here in QC, the temperature is something. Thursday the temperature rose, got warmer and the snow started to melt (yay!).  Friday it rained ALL day! But yay the snow is leaving. On Saturday I woke up to find that during the night it snowed about 2- 2 1/2 feet of snow. *sigh*  It took about 2 hours to clean and shovel the snow. My mom commented that she had never seen so much snow in her life. Now I am starting to realize why there is so much flooding when spring comes. Either way, let's get on with the show.


Have you ever had that sudden craving for sugar or maybe chocolate? But then think: all of the recipes take a lot of time or there's no cocoa powder, what shall I do? Well, I have a perfect recipe for you!

Blueberry Honey Cornbread | Breakfast Recipe

Bonjour!
Today I am going to share with you the altered version of a recipe I have been using since I was about 8. Originally the recipe has no blueberries and has corn, but one fateful day I was baking and realized I had no corn. So I did what I usually do I improvised, made it without corn and added blueberries for a better taste. And was quite surprised when it turned out well.

Candy Cane Sugar Cookies

Bonjour guys!
In my last post, I told you about a batch of cookies I made and fell positively in love with. I call it: Candy Cane Sugar Cookies, I originally found a basic simple recipe, made a couple of changes and added a Christmas twist. These are sweet but it is not overpowering, and the candy gives it a minty sweet surprise when bitten into.

What I've done so far

Hi there
I'm Loren, I don't know about you, but here where I live there is not a drop of snow on the ground, in fact, it's raining! I can not believe that its a month before Christmas and nothing. This is hard for me because last year before the 'big move' the first snowfall had been in September! Either way, Christmas is just a couple of weeks away and this year I am semi-prepared (yay me!)

Christmastime is my favorite time of the year for many, many reasons some of them being that I can sing Christmas carols and bake! Right now I am totally obsessed with a cookie recipe I found with a Christmas spin. It' sooo good and easy to make. I'll post the recipe later. The only thing I did differently was that I added some cinnamon and in another batch, I added lots of crushed candy cane. The cookies came out green and red, so Christmasy.
