Jam Rolls

This was more of an unplanned post but I had to share it here. So in my last post, I made challah (link here). It was great and delicious and everything I hoped for. But I had quite a bit of dough to use up and I wanted to make something sweet. At first I…

Peanut Butter Chocolate Hearts

I love peanut butter cups. Homemade ones of course. They’re so much better than the packaged ones you get, usually at Halloween time. Making them yourself is also way healthier because there are no preservatives or weird chemicals. I posted a peanut butter cup recipe almost 4 years ago (wow can’t believe I’ve been blogging…

Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies

Happy Monday! It’s going to be a good week. I say this because I’m starting it with some freshly baked cookies and that’s pretty awesome. It’s nice to start the week on a sweet note. These are the Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies from Thug Kitchen 101 cookbook. I know they may look like regular chocolate…

Chanukah Sufganiot (Doughnuts)

Happy Chanukah! I did a thing. I made sufganiot (soof-gan-ee-ot) which are filled doughnuts. I wasn’t planning on having this post because my family usually just buys some from a bakery, but 2020 has already been so wild, why not just make our own doughnuts this year! This was actually my first time ever! Found…

Tahini Fudge

I am not a big fan of tahini but my mom loves it so she wanted me to make this recipe. So I made it for her but I tried to keep an open mind for myself too. Also, I’m not a big fudge eater, it’s just usually way too sweet and I can only…

Banana Nice Cream Bars

I don’t know why, but I love eating frozen treats when the weather gets cold. I guess it is along the same lines as people drinking hot coffee in the summer? Either way, I made this delicious dessert and had to share! I follow this account on instagram (@nataliesnaturalfood) and she made these banana nice…

Alfajores (Sandwich Cookies)

I realized this week, that I haven’t baked a lot recently. I’ve been making mostly dinners and easy breakfasts/snacks. But today, I changed that. I made a treat called alfajores (pronounced alfa-hor-es) which are sandwich cookies. I believe they originated in Spain, but they are very popular in South America now. The actual cookie is…

Zucchini Banana Bread

I always seem to have overripe bananas at home. I get a bunch of bananas at the store and a few days later, they’ve passed their prime for me to eat. My favourite thing to do with them is bake! The obvious (and delicious) choice is to make banana bread/muffins. What I’ve made isn’t just…

Brown Sugar Blueberry Polenta Scones

I got a new cookbook! It’s called thug kitchen 101. It’s the second book in the thug kitchen series of cookbooks. It is a fully vegan book which means no dairy, eggs or meat. If you’ve never heard of this book, I will warn that the vocabulary is a little vulgar and not G rated….

Almond Blondies

Happy Monday. Starting the week with a sweet post seems like a good thing to do. My friend made these blondies the other day and I had to make them as well. They are packed with toasted chopped almonds, a little almond extract and then more whole almonds for a pretty design and extra crunch….
