Peanut Better Cookies

Wow the day has come. I have made it to the last recipe of the Brave New Meal cookbook. There are obviously some recipes I did not make for whatever reasons but maybe I’ll go back to them someday. Anyways, it’s been quite a journey of cooking through another book and I have been thinking…

Zucchini Bundt Cake

Right off the bat, from reading the name of this recipe and looking at the pictures, something is off. I do not have a Bundt pan so I used an 8″ square pan instead. Now that that’s out of the way, let’s get into the actual recipe. This is a zucchini cake and it has…

Winter Squash Blondies

So since pumpkin spice flavoured things have already been popping up in stores, I guess there is nothing wrong with the timing of making these squash blondies. I love brownies and blondies, they are just the perfect snack for a picnic or party. They are also great to freeze and have on hand whenever you…

Pecan Pear Pie

I’m just going to start this post by saying if you pick one recipe from the Brave New Meal cookbook to cook, it’s this one. Regular pecan pie is just very sweet and sort of one noted, but this one hits differently. I will say that I used frozen pie crust but honestly they just…

Kiwi Colada

It’s the middle of the week, who wouldn’t want a nice drink to relax with. This is a super refreshing drink that I made without alcohol but you could add some rum which is what the recipe actually calls for. Based on the name, you can tell that this is a play on a pina…

Fresh Peach Pudding

Happy Monday everyone! I am starting this week with an interesting recipe for me, this is something I’ve never really heard of before. This is called peach pudding, the only pudding I’ve ever had has come from a box or a Jello cup and it definitely was not made with fresh fruit. This was a…

Plum-Side-Down Cake

After the not-so-success of the last recipe (Orangesicle Bars), I was looking for a win today. Today’s recipe is another dessert – a cake – with a pleasant fruity component. As you can see from the name, this was a plum upside-down cake. I have never made an upside-down cake before, they always seemed intimidating…

Brussels Sprout Hash

I’ve never bought Brussels sprouts before because they just seem extra hard to clean well. They also seem to have quite a bad reputation for some reason. I love cabbage so I don’t know why I never made the leap to these babies. Anyways, I’m giving them a shot today with this Brussels Sprout Hash…

Pumpkin Scones

I know it’s the middle of February, but there’s nothing wrong with baking with fall flavours! These are Pumpkin Scones. I mean, I didn’t choose this recipe, I’m just continuing along in the Brave New Meal cookbook. But I love pumpkin and fall spices so I have no complaints here. Right off the bat, I…

Whatever Grain Porridge

Like I mentioned in my last post (Blackberry Sage Oat Bars) I love everything to do with oats and oatmeal. So this recipe, being a porridge with oats, along with other grains, was exciting to me. Right off the bat though, this reminded me of the recipe I made back in the Yum & Yummer…
