Mulled Wine.

Happy Friday my dears. It’s a Thanksgiving weekend in Canada and I’m being excitedly busy in the kitchen getting prepared for a Thanksgiving celebration. We never do traditional dinners but rather a fusion of our favorites, with a roasted duck with apples being a “star” of a show 😃 And since our dinner is far…

Cottage cheese and berries cake with homemade shortcrust pastry.

I was looking through my old hand written cook book. Some recipes were written by me when I was about 12. I honestly don’t know what was going through my mind back then, I probably thought that the instructions I wrote were crystal clear or maybe that I’ll never forget how to make that particular…

Easy Individual Pear Crisp.

Happy Friday friends, I am so excited to share one of my favourite, a super easy recipe of a pear crisp. Pears are highly underrated when it comes to baking in my opinion. Pears deserve more love, they are so flavourful, delicious and can be a wonderful alternative to apples. Here’s are a few fun facts…

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 sugar cookies.

Hello friends, happy Tuesday. Hope everyone is doing well. It’s the last week before my boys are back to school and while they are counting days until next Tuesday and are jumping from joy, this mama here is getting quite emotional. I always miss them so much , house feels empty and weirdly quiet, it…

Biscuits with filling

I am so thrilled to share a recipe for these cool looking biscuits with filling. They remind me of unopened tulips buds, super cute , very unusual. Even though you might think they are super hard to shape, watch my video tutorial where I show you how I shape them, and I’m sure you’ll nail…

Iced Chocolate Shake.

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…

Scones.

Phew… what a crazy week it’s been for me. From working on several baking orders, to sour cherry picking and pitting them for 3 days straight( going through over 60 pounds of cherries is no joke) , to apricot u-pick and a lazy Sunday funday with my boys. Today is a quick and my favourite…

Dark chocolate truffles with cherry filling.

There’s never enough chocolate thought I to myself and made another decadent chocolate treat.Having an unexpectedly busy week I opted for easy but oh so decadent, silky, dreamy and delightful dessert. You don’t need to have a special occasion to make truffles, they are in fact are very special already. These phenomenal truffles are made with…

Shortcrust strawberry pie.

It’s an extreme heat here in BC, and when the temperature rises to +43C baking and even cooking is not an option for me. My boys are at school for the very last day and we look forward for the summer of fun, backyard adventures, and everything else summer in Kelowna has to offer. I am…
