Chai Nectarine Loaf with Candied Ginger

September 21st, 2016

Today’s the last day of summer, so I thought I’d celebrate the last stone fruits of the season and take advantage of the no longer sweltering weather before our fall harvest, apples and pumpkin, begins to dominate grocery store aisles. This loaf combines the fleshy, tangy sweetness of tangerines, and the aromatic, warming spices commonly […]

We are due for some thunderstorms this weekend, and if at any point you find yourself missing the sunshine, this bright lemon loaf will set things right.

Flourless Chocolate Cake with Raspberries & White Chocolate Confetti Wrap

June 1st, 2012

Ever since I saw it in Citrus and Candy, I’ve been wanting to make Damien Pignolet’s Eve’s Chocolate Cake. I believe in letting your ingredients be the stars of a dish – and with only four ingredients, his recipe does just that. So how did I get from that chocolate cake, which is more of […]

Lemon & Olive Oil Cupcakes with Black Truffle Buttercream

May 22nd, 2012

Three weekends ago, I co-hosted a French-Mexican fusion dinner with my friend OH. A small jar of black summer truffles left over from the dinner was entrusted to my care and since I absolutely love truffles, I had to make something special with them. I’ve had black truffle macarons at one of my favourite patisseries […]

Mother’s Day Smorgastarta with Beet Chip Roses

May 14th, 2012

One of my most enduring memories from my childhoood is that of my mother at the dining table, preparing crafts to make with us or with her Sunday School classes. She’d work late into the early mornings to get everything ready, and somehow we always took for granted all the materials at our disposal. Our […]

Individual Caramelized Apple Cheesecakes with Streusel Topping

October 5th, 2011

I’ve never been much of a raw apple person, but when cooked, I can’t get enough. I made these for Thanksgiving last year and they were the perfect finish to our celebratory meal! I stuck a shard of pecan praline in each one (as shown below), but it’s definitely not a necessary component to the […]

Peach Kuchen

August 12th, 2011

I love this time of year. Ontario-grown peaches are in season, and I’m a big fan of supporting local farmers. Peach season is, for better or worse, the beginning of the end of summer, the harbinger of the autumn harvest – and even faster than our warmest seasons end do they ripen and turn to […]

The Queen’s Favourite Tea Cake: Souped-up Chocolate Biscuit Cake

April 27th, 2011

With all the secrecy surrounding the wedding of Prince William and Catherine Middleton, it was only right that they should let some information out to appease the masses, and way back in March I mentioned the key element that they did share with us: the cake selections. For his groom’s cake, the Prince selected a childhood […]
