Want the secret to the richest, chewiest, tastiest spiced oatmeal cookies EVER?⁣⁠ ⁣⁠It comes in a little blue-and-white box.⁣⁠⁣⁠Adding half a package of instant vanilla pudding to the dry ingredients gives these cookies great texture and really bumps up the vanilla flavor too.

High School cafeteria chocolate chip cookies

1 comment

There really isn’t a lot I’d like to bring back from my high school years. I’m quite content to leave my “Tease it to Jesus” 80s hair and mouthful of braces as nothing more than a fond memory. But the fresh-baked chocolate chip cookies from the school cafeteria are another […]

Baked gingerbread donuts with cinnamon glaze

I’m lucky to live in a city that has a huge and vibrant vegan scene. Toronto is full of restaurants that cater to vegan and vegetarian lifestyles, and we have many vegan-only or extremely vegan-friendly grocery stores, which makes it really easy to maintain a plant-based diet. We are also […]

Double Chocolate & Peanut Butter Streusel muffins

0 comments

Okay, maybe I’m exaggerating a bit by calling these “muffins”. The crumb is so light and soft and chocolatey, that it’s really hard to tell it apart from a chocolate cupcake. But in the absence of frosting (and the appearance of streusel, which is definitely a “muffin thing”), we’ll go […]

I’m a history buff and I have a love for all things vintage – especially when it comes to the kitchen. I’ve been collecting vintage cookbooks and retro kitchenware for years, so it’s no surprise that when I decided to write a dessert cookbook, I packed it full of modernized, […]

It’s been quite a week trying to get started with online school.⁣⁣Our school district had a huge spike in students switching from in-person to online classes, and not enough teachers to cover them, so we’ve been in a holding pattern with one child and a delayed start with the other […]

Apple Spice Muffins

Nothing Says fall quite like these Apple Spice muffins. With a streusel-like topping and chunks of apple, they are the perfect treat to cozy up with after a day of apple picking (and a great way to use up some of your bounty!) To give these muffins even more texture, […]

Peanut Butter Quick Bread

2 comments

I came across a non-vegan version of this recipe in a vintage cookbook and decided I needed it in my life. And being that it’s a yeast-free bread, it was right up my alley. (My breadmaking skills leave much to be desired. I have this unfounded fear of working with […]

So… remember that just-like-grandma-made blueberry muffin recipe I shared last week?⁣ Turns out they also make the best-ever Bakery-Style Chocolate Chip Muffins.⁣ Soft and fluffy on the inside with perfectly baked crunchy sugar tops.⁣ I always find myself making a double batch of these because they disappear so quickly. Its […]
