Bob and I are always excited when CTV contacts us about being on their Morning Live TV show. Themed cooking seems to be our TV calling and this time it was all in the spirit of luuuuurve for Valentine’s Day or Singles Awareness Day – however you choose to celebrate it. So what says love better than two perfect little red velvet whoopie pie cookies sandwiched together with the love of a cream cheese filling! You can even oomph up the love factor and cut them into adorable little hearts (*insert ‘awwww’ or ‘gag’ here*) Mmmmm…. either way, red velvet just sounds just delightful to me! Let’s get to the recipe so you can make these for your someone special. 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
If you’ve been following our Facebook Page, you might know that we’ve been asked by CTV Morning Live Saskatoon (a local news station in our city) to come on air to do a cooking segment. When Bob & I got the news we were pretty excited and started racking our brains for what we could make under their requested theme of “Grey Cup Party”. We knew we should stick to our classics with Bob covering the grilled cheese front and myself, tackling the cupcakes. But my brain had a bit of a “food block” – how can you make a cupcake appropriate for a football party?? Now here was my thought pattern: football…party…manly men yelling at a TV…beer….pretzels...okay, now let’s combine them into something sweet, salty and decadent: The Beer Buddy Cupcake – a beer infused chocolate cupcake topped with a Salted Caramel Buttercream and garnished with pretzels. Voila! Game day appropriate cupcakes! Now let’s get to the recipe…
While lots of dessert trends seem to come and go, I think cupcakes are just one of those things that will stick around forever (like the Little Black Dress of the baking world). After rave reviews of my Dr. Pepper Cupcakes, Cinnamon Toast Crunch Cupcakes & Mancakes (bacon chocolate cupcakes) from BS’ers, I decided to continue on the trend of non-traditional, brand-name treats inspired cupcakes and made these Fruit Loop Cupcakes! These little babies have a sweet, fruity-tuity touch to them and bring back tons of childhood memories. Let’s get to the recipe…. Continue reading
Well I must be honest… I tried to make an angel food cake from scratch last week and I failed… like not even failed a little bit… failed miserably. The whole thing didn’t even rise – but I blame the recipe since it said to combine the flour right to the eggs – and I shouldn’t have known better but hey…. learn from your mistakes right? So if you don’t find success, try, try, try again…and then made this beautiful recipe for angel food cake from the liner from the Wilton Angel Food Cake Pan.
Well BS’ers it looks like I’ve been challenged to another ‘Iron Chef’ recipe – to make Dr. Pepper flavoured cupcakes for a pregnant lady at work whose had non-stop cravings for DP. So L, these cupcakes are for you and the soon-to-be-Dr.Pepper’s-Number-One-Fan. All the best in the last few days of your pregnancy and can’t wait to meet the little turk! Let’s get to the recipe….
