It’s that time of year again where the ghosts, goblins and ghouls come out from their dark corners to haunt little children…and for adults to stuff our faces with delicious chocolate, candy, drinks and treats. That’s right, it’s Halloween. Bob and I were invited back to do another cooking segment with CTV Morning Live with a Halloween twist. We kept true to who we are, Bob covering the savory, while I dived into the sweeter side of Halloween with a Dexter inspired chocolate pie. Let’s get to the recipe so you can make it for your spooky Halloween party!

As many of you may have already read from Bob’s Beer Can Chicken post, we were recently back on CTV Morning Live with our good friend and fabulous anchor (and apparently my twin – as I was stopped at a local coffee shop later that afternoon asking if I co-hosted the morning news!), Stephanie Massicotte. Bob covered the savoury dish with his chicken, so I was back tackling the sweets with these ice cream tacos. These tacos are so fun and simple, so don’t hold back the reins. Be fully creative and see what kind of ice cream tacos your imagination can come up with! Read on for the easy, and kid friendly, recipe.

Made a lobster roll? Still got leftovers? Don’t like lobster rolls? Love pasta? Well then this dish is for you! Another easy recipe utilizing leftover (or fresh) lobster. Given that i’m not a huge fan of really rich pasta sauce, I have made a butter free sauce, allowing the lobster and parmesan cheese to provide plenty of rich, hearty flavour!

Now for the sweet (and beautiful) crepe! Along with making the Green Onion Parmesan Crepe for our CTV Morning Live Mother’s Day special, we decided these red velvet crepes would be another great option. Not only are they delicious, but the vibrant colour looks quite impressive if I do say so myself!

I have a “bad blogger” moment to admit to: Before Christmas time I made roughly 150+ perogies and ate them all… yes all of them… k well not all of them because I did share a few dozen with friends and family… but the large majority….. without taking a single picture of them or blogging them. Now full of blogger shame, this past weekend I decided to whip up another batch. However, I must be clinically insane because I’ve made over 300 perogies with this ginormous batch. So everyone can expect one thing: more perogy recipes will be appearing on the blog. Who knows – maybe I will be the Perogy Princess while Bob is the Grilled Cheese King. Let’s get to this ethnic hybrid of perogies! Continue reading

How this pie came about was a bit strange because for some odd reason I was craving a Banana Cream Pie or a Coconut Cream Pie (I think I’ll make that one next), but I’ve never had a slice of Banana Cream Pie in my life; or not that I can remember anyways. Regardless of where this craving came from, I hustled into the kitchen to whip up my first Banana Cream Pie. Let’s get to the recipe so you can satisfy your own cravings. Continue reading
I’ve always really liked carrot cake, but I’ve never actually made it before. This is likely because it’s one of my grandma’s specialities. However the calling came for a traditional dessert for a family dinner, I decided to give it a whirl and I’m quite happy with the results! It’s a classic homemade carrot cake that’s promised to make everyone happy. Continue reading

One of my good friends Lauren just celebrated her 30th birthday. Now, Lauren is one of the hardest working women I know. She works an office job and is also a professional photographer (and voted as our city’s best in 2012), so I knew she needed an extra special cake to help celebrate this milestone birthday! After seeing an ombre cake on Pinterest, I knew I wanted to give one whirl. Now, don’t fret if you are thinking “that is way too detailed and complicated for me”. It’s not. It’s actually way easier than you think. Let’s get to the recipe, so I can show you how to make your own ombre cake! Continue reading
