My family’s favourite plum pie.

It’s a plum season here in British Columbia. We love plums but we also love using plums for baking. I can’t even tell you how many times I’ve baked this pie before. During the plum season I bake it on repeat, and there’s so many reasons why we all love it. It’s a perfect combination…

Cottage cheese filled shortcrust pastries.

These petite shortcrust pastries are filled with sweet cottage cheese. They are called sochinki, this name comes from the word “ sok” or juice. Originally these pastries were brushed with juice, hence the name. I couldn’t find a proper English translation, which obviously is hard, as there’s no similar type of pastry in North American…

If someone says chocolate for breakfast is a bad idea, they should try this extra chocolate, dark and decadent iced cold chocolate shake. Don’t get me wrong I don’t encourage anyone to have a high calorie sweet breakfast like this on daily basis, I strongly believe that some extra chocolate as a booster is not…
