Lavender Eclairs

 When I was a kid, Easter was kind of a big deal. My sisters and I would lay out our woven wicker baskets in the living room before going to bed, and when we came downstairs the next morning each basket would have a chocolate bunny sitting inside.

Honey Pie

 This isn’t the sort of pie that makes a grand entrance.

Things like ten or twelve hour sleeps and lazy afternoons sitting on the couch curled up with a magazine/book/movie are the simply pleasures that long weekends lend themselves to. Thank you, long weekend, for being  ...

Chocolate Date Loaf

If you frequent this blog every so often, you may have noticed I’ve been dying to make a dessert that is sweetened with dates. Well, I have not only found a chocolate date dessert, but I actually stole this recipe from my friend Evelyne. Yes, I stole it. Evelyne is a sports nutritionist, and one of Quebec’s top-tiered dietitians.  ...
