Rosh Hashanah Sweets

Hope your week is off to a good start. Jewish new year started Sunday night so I had a big meal with my family. I totally forgot to take pictures of the food but I did manage to remember dessert! – Honey Cake: This is a recipe that we’ve made every year for as long…

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…

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…

Happy Birthday To Me!

Over the past few years, I’ve really enjoyed making my own birthday cake. This is what I made last year – link here. So I wanted to keep that tradition alive and this year, I made a strawberry shortcake. I found a vanilla cake recipe online from Liv For Cake blog (recipe here). It was…

Apple Mormon Muffins

Okay let’s do this, second recipe from the brave new meal cookbook! These are the apple Mormon muffins which have a story behind the name. These are packed with goodness! Let me just get this out there – if you need to increase your fiber, you got to make these muffins. There are bran flakes,…

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…
