Apple Cinnamon Rolls

Apple Cinnamon Rolls

Cinnamon rolls are a labour of love – they take time. The dough must be kneaded for ten minutes, then it rises for an hour and a half, and after it’s rolled out, the buns must rise again for nearly an hour before they’re baked. It’s a process. One I love.

Moist Blueberry Bran Muffins

Moist Blueberry Bran Muffins

Bran is sexy, right? If you wanted to woo me, I could totally be won over by a basket of warm bran muffins.

We had a few days a while back when hubby was traveling for his business – it was just me, Theo (baby) and Oliver (dog). Things were hectic. One morning, Theo was taking out ALL of his toys, playing with each one for twenty seconds then throwing it across the room, and Oliver (who was desperately dodging flying plastic cows) needed to be walked – URGENTLY.  You see, the toy-hucking toddler was slinging chili by the fistful to his furry friend the night before. And apparently spicy kidney beans don’t sit well with Irish Setters.

 

Whoopie Pies

Whoopie Pies

I know that whoopie pies had their moment back in 2009 (before macarons and cupcakes and cake pops edged them out of the spotlight), but I can’t help revisiting them because, 1. I LOVE THEM and 2. I think I’ve perfected the recipe.

The cakes are fudgey and moist and the filling is billowy and marshmallow-y, but not over-rich or tooth-achingly sweet. So can we bring them back in style, please? Because I seriously don’t think a cookie-cake hybrid (or even life itself) could get any better than these right here.

Best Butter Chicken

Best Butter Chicken
Butter Chicken is one of the recipes most frequently requested of me. It’s one I make fairly often, so I don’t know why it’s taken me so long to post it!

This restaurant favourite is creamy, flavourful and mild on the spectrum of Indian curries. My version is simplified (read: doesn’t require a plethora of spices that you’ll buy and only need one-eighth of a teaspoon of) but doesn’t suffer in the flavour department. This is definitely a lick-your-plate dinner.
