Honey Cake

I know I have posted about this honey cake before. It is made every year in my house for Rosh Hashanah (Jewish New Year). It is just such a delicious cake because is light and fluffy, and nicely sweetened, which is perfect for the occasion. This cake has 3 forms of sweetness – white sugar,…

Baked Peaches

Peaches might be my ultimate summer fruit. When they are in season, my family always buys a whole bunch of them… weekly. And they do not go to waste! Mostly, we just eat them fresh but sometimes, it’s nice to bake with them. I love making crisps/crumbles but sometimes you want a dessert that’s easy…

Chocolate Cherry Blondies

I’ve been loving the summer fruits that are in season right now. But sometimes I go a little overboard at the grocery store and I can’t eat them fast enough, so they start to go bad. When that happens, the best option is to bake with them! Today, my fruit was cherries. I had so…

Smoothie Popsicles

If you ever make too much smoothie, and don’t have anyone to drink it, why not turn it into popsicles! This is a great way to repurpose your drink and turn it into a super refreshing summer treat. The best thing about this is that you do not need any extra ingredients – just need…

Chia Pudding

Chia pudding is one of those things that I’ve thought about making for a little while. I always add chia seeds to my overnight oatmeal so I figured it was time to make some pudding. If you’ve ever had tapioca pudding, this is quite similar. The recipe I used is from Feel Good Foodie (link…

My Own Birthday Cake

It’s my birthday!! Well actually my birthday was earlier this week but this is my celebratory post! Does anyone else like to bake their own birthday cake, or is it just me? I just love to cook/bake so it makes sense that I would make my cake (and eat it) too. Plus, since I started…

Banana Snickers

Like some of you out there, I spend part of my days watching videos on TikTok. One of my favourite types of videos on there is the cooking videos (for obvious reasons). I have made some in the past and posted about them – Tortilla Wrap, Peanut Butter Dip & Ramen – and today I…

Homemade Almond Joys

Have you ever tried making a homemade version of a candy bar? This was a first time for me! I picked Almond Joys which is made of a sweetened coconut mixture and whole almonds, covered in melted chocolate. They are very similar to Mounds, but those do not have almonds. I chose almond joy because…

Cheesecake Parfaits

Some of the best desserts don’t require any cooking. This is one of them. These are adorable little cheesecake parfaits. It is layers of graham crumbs, a creamy yogurt filling and fresh strawberries. It is a lighter, but equally delicious, version of a classic cheesecake. And since these are no-bake, it is much quicker to…

Blueberry Oatmeal Bars

So a few weeks ago I made PB & J cookies which were delicious – nothing better than peanut butter, banana and jam together. This recipe today is actually from the same person (@nataliesnaturalfood on Instagram). These are blueberry oatmeal bars (link here). There are only a few ingredients in these bars, the main one…
