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.

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!
