Strawberry yoghurt cupcakes with cream cheese frosting for National Cupcake Day

Remember earlier this month when I announced that today, February 27th, is Canada’s fifth National Cupcake Day – raising money for SPCAs and Humane Societies across the country? That’s right –  today is all about cupcakes – and raising money to help animals in need all around Canada. This is my fifth year participating and […]

Tuesdays with Dorie (Baking Chez Moi): Rice Pudding with Strawberries and Spiced Hibiscus Syrup

This week’s recipe for Tuesdays with Dorie was one I haven’t been looking forward to, to tell you the truth. Rice pudding, in any iteration (even with strawberries and spiced hibiscus syrup) just doesn’t appeal. In fact, the last time I made it, it was for French Fridays with Dorie (where, with a huge ratio […]

Product review: Yonanas (and a banana-berry swirl soft serve recipe)

I’m a big ice cream fan – in fact it’s probably the dessert I eat the most, even when there are decadent French dessert treats in the house. Not much beats a small scoop of a quality ice cream, in my book, as an everyday treat. Sadly, my reality is that I shouldn’t really eat […]

French Fridays: Strawberry Cream Puffs

One of my absolute favourite French pastries to make is choux pastry. So easy (sssh!) and so versatile because you can make either sweet or savoury iterations – the possibilities for filling and topping choux puffs or éclairs is endless! From the moment we made gougères for Week 1 of French Fridays with Dorie, I […]
