Chocolate Bark

I think I’m in a chocolate mood. It’s funny, I don’t even have such a sweet tooth, but recently, I’ve been indulging a little more than usual. Nothing wrong with that though, as long as you don’t go overboard with anything, everything is good in moderation! If you missed my last post – PB &…

Lemon Coconut Cheesecake

I love cheesecake. It’s so creamy and rich and just the perfect dessert. I’ve made this specific recipe a couple times before, from the Just a Taste blog (link here). I made it originally as the bars and then I made them again, dipped them in chocolate which was incredible! Today’s cheesecake was lemon coconut…

Snickerdoodles

Starting the week with cookies!! If you know me, you know I have been baking and selling cookies – Lindsay Bakes – I started at the beginning of this year. One of the cookie flavours I offer is snickerdoodle. It is a cinnamon dough rolled in cinnamon sugar. It was one of the first flavours…

Classic Apple Crisp

Looking for a classic and always delicious dessert? Apple crisp is the way to go! To me, there are two keys to a great crisp: Large chunks of apples. If you cut your apples too small, they will be overbaked and mushy by the time it comes out of the oven. I like when they…

Pumpkin Pie Breakfast Cookies

Are you ready for another fall pumpkin post?? So last week I made that delicious Pumpkin Marinara Pasta (link here) but I still had lots of pumpkin puree leftover. I decided to make something sweet. I found this recipe for these cookies from the Momables website (link here). This was a very easy recipe to…

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…

Almond Cake with Peach Caramel

This Monday’s Thug Kitchen recipe was such a good one. It is an almond cake with a delicious peach caramel. This may be my favourite dessert from this cookbook to date. Let’s start with the cake. When you think of an almond cake, you expect it to be made of almond flour/ground almonds or at…

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…
