This dessert makes me happy because, well it’s dessert, and dessert is delicious! But on the other hand, it makes me sad, because Celeste, one of my old room-mates made it, and now she is on a cross country road trip to Newfoundland with her fiancée (and my other room-mate) Ross, which means they no longer live in Saskatoon with me! Sadness On the positive side, she is blogging their whole adventure on Sugar Cured, if you love food, travel, and cursing, definitely check it out!

Over this summer, a good friend and I have been going out for evening trail rides every Friday. These are such a treat, nothing beats the relaxation of good friends, beautiful scenery of the Saskatchewan prairies and a horse. Before we head out, we eat dinner with her adorable little family. I recently made these for one of our rides and they were a hit! Easy, and tiny enough to fit perfectly in your hand (and just small enough for not feeling guilty if you have a second helping ) I’d imagine you could play around with the type of apples or the filling itself. All in all, these are a wonderful fall treat and would make a beautiful addition to any dessert table.
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.
Continuing on with grilled peaches, I present the perfect summer dessert! Warm peaches, sweet honey, vanilla ice cream, candied walnuts, and fresh herbs, does it get any better!? I don’t know! But if it does, I can hardly imagine the glory!
The fact that this dessert is not only super simple, but super delicious, makes it a big winner in my books! It’s summer. You want to relax, have some drinks, chat with friends. Not slave away over a dessert all day!
I feel really accomplished putting this post up – the blog’s been a bit neglected, but I’m down for the count with pneumonia, so curling up on the couch has allowed me a bit more computer time than normal. So with that, I present to you: Avocado pudding. Yup… Avocado pudding. Now, you’re likely thinking “What? Ew, that’s gross”, but trust me it’s great and you’d never guess that avocados are the main ingredients. This recipe even got the full Dad seal of approval (and from the guy who normally hates ‘hippy’ food). While I like that this recipe is healthy for you, I really enjoy that it’s super fast and easy to make! So let’s get to this dessert recipe.
Well I think by the fact alone that I had to ask my brother to get the new password really goes to show how long I’ve been away from the blog! Yeesh! I can’t even think about the last time I’ve done a post, but I’m back and hopefully will post one or two more over the holidays. But like this post, things have been nuts lately between work, photography, life and with pulling days that start at 4:30 am and don’t wrap til 11:30pm, food, cooking and the blog has gotten the serious shaft. But enough talking, let’s get to this recipe: Candied Nuts! This is a great and extremely veristle recipe. Eat the nuts as a snack, as a dessert or a topping to a salad. However you eat it, these perfectly matched sweet and savoury nuts will be sure to please your palette! Continue reading
I think i’m gonna start baking this dessert just so I can keep saying “and for dessert we have a delicious Cla-foo-teeee”. It just sounds so fancy! Not to mention it’s super delicious and easy to make.
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 had this for breakfast…don’t judge me.
Come on, it’s not that bad, plenty of dairy, fruit, some carbs, a little sugar to get that blood pressure up, add in a cup off coffee and you’re ready for an epic day.

I have some exciting news to share with everyone – I’ve recently accepted a new job in the world of potash and phosphate. While I am very excited to start my new role, I’m sad to say fair well to colleagues and friends at my current job in transportation. A good friend at work has been requesting cannolis for a while, so I knew I had to make them for her on my last day (even though I know we will stay friends, we just won’t be seeing each other every day). These were a bit scary for me to make as I’ve never eaten a cannoli in my life, so I had nothing to compare it to and it involved using oil to fry the cannoli pastries (reference: Bob’s disaster with frying pastry), but hey, sometimes you just have to jump off the cliff and hope you fly. This time it worked out in my favour and they actually were way easier to make than I thought. Let’s get to the recipe. Continue reading
