Finding new favourites with these Sweet & Salty Chocolate Chip Cookies [VIDEO]

If you like chocolate chip cookies as much as I do, then you probably have at some point in your life tried to make them. They’re like the basic of the most basic of all baking recipes, and even non-bakers have probably found success in making them. But I swear, it doesn’t get any easier …

Double trouble with this particular variation of a Chocolate Banana Bread Recipe

So I guess I’m breaking my self-made tradition of posting pastries made with liquor on the first week of a new year, just because somebody drank all the booze I was supposed to bake with and I just wasn’t in the mood to go out and buy more. So instead I thought I’d write about …

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 …

A moment for Boston, and the world while we’re at it

There was a time when I aspired to run a marathon in Boston. It was around the time I had just begun to gain confidence in my ability to go the distance in my running. Despite all the splinters and the post-run sores, running gave me such a wonderful release. I would be on an …
