As our 2016 food adventures wind down, it is time for us to plan for our next year.  Where will our stomachs take us?  What food adventures will we have. You will just have to wait and see.  I am posting this recipe as my last recipe of 2016 as I hope to inspire your…

Festive Bear Hug Sugar Cookies

Yes I am late with my holiday baking. I usually start at the end of November.  Why because it just takes so long.  I decided this year I wanted to change up my cookies and try using cookie cutters.  I usually hate rolled cookies because I don’t like the texture and it takes too long. …

Frickin’ Easy Vegan Black Forest Cake

By popular demand, I tried to make a vegan version of my black forest cake.  It sort of worked?! I guess.  It tasted great but the coconut whipped cream didn’t last long.  My original cake was made with whipping cream and it was perfect. It was a moist and delicious cake. This version was just…

Rhubarb and Apple Crumble

Rhubarb is one of those beautiful plants you find in many gardens. They have bright red stalks and dark green leaves.  The leaves of the rhubarb are poisonous and cannot be used in baking and cooking. The red stalks are sour and need to be cooked or baked with sugar. My backyard has one rhubarb…

Apple Sour Cream Pound Cake

I decided to create some Pokemon inspired sugar cookies. This was my first time making and decorating sugar cookies and I was surprised at how…

Banana Bread

Banana tend to ripen pretty fast in the summer and I don’t like my bananas brown. I often use the brown bananas for smoothies or use them for baking. My favourite recipe would have to be banana bread from the cookbook Company’s Coming. Start the recipe by preheating the oven to 350 degrees. In a…

Decorating Jello with Fruit

Jello doesn’t have to be an understated dessert. You can make your Jello the life of the party by decorating it with fruit. I came up with this idea because my friend who loves Jello would always make Jello “cakes”. For her birthday, we decided to make her a Jello Birthday Cake. To decorate the…

Review: Vancouver’s Hot Chocolate Festival

Every year Vancouver has a hot chocolate festival where many restaurants showcase their own take on the delicious chocolatey drink. This year I decided I wanted to check out some of these places to get some ideas on my own hot chocolate creation. My first stop was Bella Gelateria (Coal Harbour). This place won a…
