White Chocolate Cranberry Krispie Treats

If you know me then you know I love me a Rice Krispie treat.  I’ve made so many over the years I can’t keep count.  I love experimenting with different flavours.  In the past I’ve made Cinnamon Bun Rice Krispies, as well as throwing in things like chocolate chips and marshmallows. I’ve hit the jackpot…

Christmas Cookie Countdown – Oatmeal Fruit Cookies

This week’s cookie is one that I personally like.  While it can technically be made any time of the year (as are most cookies), I personally like cinnamon flavour around this time.  It makes you feel warm and brings forth visions of sitting by the fire while sharing these cookies with your loved ones. Oatmeal…

Christmas Cookie Countdown – Sour Cream Raisin Cookies

Well, the Christmas music is playing, I’ve got a nice hot cup of tea by my side so I’m ready to start giving you some of my favourite holiday cookies.  I’m starting off with a drop cookie.  Drop cookies are one of the easiest cookie to make.  Cookies like my molasses drop cookie or chocolate…

Zucchini Loaf

A couple of months ago I planted some zucchini sprouts purchased from our local garden centre.  Every year I seem to lose my memory about how abundant zucchini plants are under ideal conditions.  This summer’s crop is doing really well.  We’ve had quite a bit of moisture this season.  Some farmers are complaining it’s too…

Partridgeberry Marshmallows

It’s been bitterly cold for days here and I was starting to lose hope for all chances of ever warming up so I wanted to make something I could have a little snack with something warm.  While I don’t know if these would be good in hot chocolate, I do know that these would be…

Partridgeberry Chewies

Whata yat?  It’s been a little while since I’ve posted, so I wanted to get you all up to speed.  I had a tooth removed so I wasn’t feeling the best for a couple of days.  The dentist told me that I had to eat soft foods.  You know, like oatmeal, soup, yogurt, and the…

Partridge Berry Mini Muffins

If you visit Newfoundland during the summer and early fall you may see people parked by the side of the highway.  They will be sitting there in metal lawn chairs with plastic ice cream buckets at their feet.  Those buckets are probably filled with freshly picked berries.  When we were kids, my brother and I…

Cinnamon Bun Rice Krispie Bites

It took me a little while to think about what I wanted to write for this post.  Usually I try to connect it with Newfoundland or some childhood memory I have growing up there.  But I got to thinking that this is my blog and I can just post a recipe of something I like…

Amazing Chocolate Chip Cookies

A little while ago I found an article through Flipboard about baking your cookies in a muffin tin.  Here’s one such article from another baker: Chocolate Covered Katie.  Many times I’ve scooped cookies out onto the pan, have them all a nice uniform scoop, only to have them bake and spread.  The bane of many…

Santa’s Shortbread

One of my favourite cookies for the holidays is shortbread.  Its rich buttery taste just gets me in the mood for sitting in front of a warm cozy fire with a mug of hot chocolate and these great cookies.  This is also the perfect cookie to set out for the jolly old elf himself for…
