With fall upon us, out come the sweaters, colorful leaves, and MASSIVE amounts of Autumn inspired food appearing in the blogosphere! Not wanting to leave our blog out of all the action, I present to you Halloween Pumpkin Pasta! As I was actually shopping for some new fall clothes (think thick plaid button-up shirts, and comfy sweaters) when I came across this awesome looking pasta. With our other ventures into striped pasta garnering an impressive number of hits, I knew this had to be blogged! Of course, I wanted to make something in the spirit of the season, so instead of a typical pasta sauce, I gave a pumpkin based sauce a go!

One of my good, long-term friends recently celebrated his 26th birthday so I decided that I should make him some special cupcakes. While he originally requested Mancakes, I had just made them so I wanted to make something a bit different. So with a recent suggestion from another friend, we decided that Cinnamon Toast Crunch cupcakes would be equally as awesome! Let me tell you – these little babies are packed FULL of flavour and actually taste like the childhood favourite cereal. So go ahead and make these babies – I double dog dare ya’ too!

So I guess the cat is out of the bag… I’ve been selected to participate on C95′s (a local radio station) version of The Bachelor as one of their lucky five bachelorettes. I was trying to think of something creative and delicious and yet a bit different to bring for my first in-station interview. So I decided what is a better way to a guy’s heart but food – specifically bacon and chocolate. Thus my invention of the Mancake. I figure the word ‘cupcake’ is a bit too girly and doesn’t perfectly describe a cupcake that combines chocolate and candied bacon – thus the word Mancake was born. Continue reading

So off to the kitchen we went! Sean is a big golfer, so we both agreed that a Titleist golf cake would be the best thing to make. Continue reading
At work we have an Iron Chef Challenge once a month where a group of people cook off and have their dishes judged by a panel of fellow employees. This month’s secret ingredient is…. PESTO! Right away I knew I didn’t want to do something traditional with pesto, so I ventured off to what I know best: Dessert. I made a Basil Chocolate Cake with a Parmesan Sour Cream Cheese Icing and topped it off with some pine nuts and grated parmesan cheese. This is also one of the best things I’ve ever eaten – SERIOUS FOODGASM. Continue reading
