My first time meeting the Chubby Hubby Cookie Bars

Chubby Hubby Cookie Bars 1 - My first time meeting the Chubby Hubby Cookie Bars

Raise your hand if you think the name of these Chubby Hubby Cookie Bars are the cutest ever! That name was actually the draw of this recipe, considering I’ve never heard of such a thing before.

That thing Canadians call Nanaimo Bars

Nanaimo Bars 1 - That thing Canadians call Nanaimo Bars

We all have off days; days when no matter how hard we try we just can’t seem to hit the mark. These Nanaimo Bars were made on a day full of baking blunders. In fact, I had almost forgotten about them thanks to my disappointment with the outcome of the other recipes I tried. I …

Musings with a side of Triple Choco-cado Brownies

How do you keep your everyday interesting? Sometimes I scroll through my Instagram feed and feel just a little bit jealous (okay, a LOT jealous) of how everybody else seems to be living such a charmed life. While I sit in an office six times a week from 9 to 6, the people on my …

Cookie Butter madness, part 2

Well, two of my younger brothers have officially converted into cookie butter lovers! And while I remain to be a solid peanut butter girl, I can’t deny I’ve rather enjoyed baking with cookie butter. It just has the most amazing smell once it is added to the batter, and I would keep making speculoos treats …

No turning back now + Peanut Butter and Jelly Bars

When I started this whole blogging thing, I had no idea what to expect. All I aimed for was a place to share the things I bake/cook and shoot. Now it feels like a little more than that. Aside from the newfound goal of teaching others and encouraging others to cook and bake too, now …
