Chocolate Stout Cupcakes with Dark Chocolate Ganache

During a particularly intense game of would you rather, I was once asked if I'd rather give up chocolate or cheese. The thought deeply disturbed me and I refused to make up my mind. That is, until now. Because one peek at Cassandra Monroe 's chocolate stout cupcakes with dark chocolate ganache and I'm fairly certain my answer is a no brainer: chocolate all the way. From Cassandra... These Chocolate...

Best Chocolate Brownies Ever

Remember when Monica on Friends said she wanted to be the mom who makes the very best chocolate chip cookies? I feel the same way.

In the longstanding battle of cake vs. pie, I've always been solidly Team Cake. And I've always thought there's nothing better than cake you can have for no reason at all! Naturally, I'm totally smitten with Rikki Snyder's recipe for simple chocolate cake with a sprinkling of fresh pansies- it's just perfect for cheering up an otherwise average spring or summer day!

Meringue with Fresh Berries

It's been an entire week since we posted RomaBea's garden feast, but I still can't get it out of my mind. More specifically? I can't get the food out of my mind! The tarts and berries and bevvy's, oh my! So I did what any sane person does when faced with beautiful food imagery she can't shake. I asked the caterer...

Tiramisu Cake

There's this cafe in the heart of Toronto that I've been known to frequent from time to time. The place is unassuming, the decor is just okay, the food is edible, but the tiramisu? The tiramisu is godly. It's light as air and chock full of flavour and I've been known to leave my condo at ungodly hours just to get my fix. And I didn't think anything could top it until Dripp's version came into my life. Captured by ...

Homemade Cinnamon Rolls

I think that I'm officially being swayed from my go-to roll recipe. Because the cute duo at Sinclair & Moore has left me vowing to my kids that barring my impending labor, I am 100% making these this weekend for Easter Sunday. I might even make them the night before and bake them the morning of. I know, I'm a rebel like that.

Pistachio Macarons

One of the showstoppers from Sinclair & Moore's Easter Brunch that we featured was the perfect macarons that helped grace the table's centerpiece. Because when placed on a pretty white cake stand, well, they sort of steal the show.
