Lime and Persimmon Marmalade

Β Marmalade is a creation that is both sweet and tart- and I like to make my own as I prefer it more on the tart side. Especially when heavily slathered with hot butter and toasted baguette! This recipe uses limes which add a heavy citrus note, and is paired with persimmons. If you don’t know what persimmons are, they’re a large  ...

Reese’s and Cream Crepe Cake

What was your favourite candy when you were a kid? Mine was Reese’s peanut butter cups- and I was so calculated about enjoying them that I would count how many I had collected on Hallowe’en and carefully dole them out to myself over a couple weeks. In fact, even today when I purchase a bar, I carefully eat each little cup one by  ...

Product Review: Muthins

Granola can get boring incredibly fast, which is surprising given the variety of nuts and seeds it can hold.  ...

Apple Spice Smoothie

Last weekend Ben and I went apple picking with our friends Rebecca and Paul. We harvested Spartan, Macintosh, Lobo, and Golden apples, each just as delicious as their cousins (that sounds quite cannibalistic but I`m going to keep going…) It was a gorgeously warm and sunny day, but probably the last of the season before we transition into  ...

Cornmeal Waffles

Β Sweater-weather is perhaps one of my favourite seasons. It’s when it is too cold for a summer dress, but still too warm to break out a parka. A sweater (preferably soft and fluffy) fits the bill perfectly these days, and I’m going to cherish it until the first speck of snow! Cozy up during this pre-fall time with these decadent  ...
