Goat Butter Rough Puff Pastry + Ginger-Cardamom Morning Buns

We don’t celebrate Valentines Day in our house. That isn’t because our immaculate love transcends Hallmark Holidays or because we reek of pretentiousness and manage to romance each other every day so we don’t need a special day that tells us to do it. If I’m being honest, it’s because we don’t really care. Because […]

Whatever Works

Fixing dinner with a teething, growth-spurting, crawling-all-over-and-getting-into-everything, pulling-on-your-pant-leg 9 month old can be a challenge (every parent everywhere, “wait until she’s walking!”). Each morning I imagine the delicious meal I’ll shop for, prep and cook during the day but ultimately I end up eating a bowl of Lipton’s chicken noodle soup…. sometimes I might even […]

IN WHICH LIFE HAPPENS

Almost four months ago now, I laid awake in the gentle morning light and stirred for an impossibly long time in bed. My thoughts whipped around like a wind-blown bag. I waited for Allan to wake up so that I could finally put my thoughts to rest. At least for a few moments. From the […]

Back to the Kitchen

…and we’re back. Sorry about that little sabbatical I took there. June was quite a month – moments of frustration and accomplishment, moments of sheer exhaustion tickled with exhileration, moments of bliss, love and shining happiness. It passed by so quickly but when I look back on it all, I can’t believe it was all crammed […]

Gone So Long

YOU GUYS. I’ve been thinking about this float for a MONTH. A whole month. Waiting until I was done the freelance projects I was working on, day dreaming about it, “will it be as pretty as I’m picturing?’ “will the flavours make sense without overpowering eachother?”, and I can safely say… Yes! It IS as […]

Losing the War on Breakfast [Coconut, Carrot & Pumpkin Spice Bread with Candied Ginger]

In the ongoing saga of Kelly vs. Healthy Breakfast options, I seem to be losing again. I go on stints of yogurt/granola/berries, healthy cereals, whole grain toast with natural nut butters, eggs and greens… but dammit I just want that [expletive] croissant!!! Better yet, that [expletive] croissant stuffed with a poached egg, gouda and flaky […]

Knock Out That Cold [Spicy Kale Ginger Lemonade]

There is something ominous lurking around.  A dirty, nasty cold/flu that seems to be knocking my friends and family out one by one. I woke yesterday with a sandpaper throat and what felt like two corks in my sinus’. Immediately I started trying to knock it out before it did me in.  Water (a lot of water), […]

Desperately Seeking Sun [Ginger-Cilantro Margaritas]

I’m not usually so bitter towards winter.  We live in a city that inevitably gets 200cm (78”) or more of snowfall each season but come March, when we tend to get a day or two of teasing above zero weather, anger and frustration starts to set in after that warmth is quickly gusted away by […]

File Under: Easiest Desserts

With fall and cold weather nipping at our ankles, I suspect that many of you are starting to spend more nights in the comfort of your sweats and the glow of a warm fire.. or at least the glow of a tv movie. I know I’ve certainly been spending more nights at home, in the […]
