Pineapple Upside Down Cake

One of my favorite classic recipes is pineapple upside down cake. The moist sponge cake topped by brown sugar sweetened pineapple rings is perfection. This is a vintage recipe that has been around in my family for years, and I am happy to share it with you.

Chocolate Pansy Cake

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! From Rikki... I love pansies. They were one of my grandma's favorites and she would...

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...

Olive Oil Cupcakes with Meyer Lemon and Blood Orange Syrup

Did you hear that? That'd be my mouth watering over Megan Doherty's incredible cupcakes. This right here is what you'd call a grown up treat. Void of sugary frosting and colorful jimmies, these beauties are what you'd serve when trying to impress at an elegant affair. The olive oil infuses a rich, moistness that can't be beat, while the citrusy syrup is simply aces! What I'm trying to say is these babies need to be yours, and...

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. Plus placing them on the table means that your guests can access them easier and are more inclined to devour every last inch. And...

Strawberry Pretzel Ice Cream

I'm not sure what I'm more excited about: this new trend in experimental ice cream flavors or the fact that we're on the cusp of ice cream weather. I can almost feel the sun on my bare arms! And though I may have turned up my nose at the idea of a strawberry and pretzel combo in the past, the sweet and savoury pairing is totally unbeatable. Once more Whipperberry leaves me drooling...

Irish Soda Bread

My favourite types of recipes are those that have been passed down from generation to generation. The tried, tested and true babies that are found on ripped, stained, water-logged recipe cards. When I get my hands on them, I hold on forever. And that's particularly true for this classic dish - a traditional Shea family recipe that's well worth a taste! Oh, and there's more St. Patty's inspiration ...

Is everyone else as sick of winter as I am? I don't think I'll be the first to say that this year has been bad. Brutal, even!

Homemade Mint Marshmallows

Would you judge me if I told you that up until a year ago the idea of mint and chocolate combined totally repulsed me? I'm not sure what's changed since, but now? Well now I can't seem to get enough of the idea. And I'm fairly confident these mint marshmallows need to be mine. Immediately. Can you think of anything better atop your hot cocoa? I didn't think so! Photography: Jana Carson | Recipes/catering: ...
