Every once in a while I will get a message from someone asking if I know of any good gluten free or vegan recipes. The short response is usually a no. I just haven’t made many gluten free or vegan friendly desserts, so there aren’t any I can recommend without having tried them out first…until now!
I’ve come to realize that peppermint flavoured cookies are something that people either love or hate. I personally quite enjoy them, which is why these cookies made it onto my cookie baking marathon list before Christmas.

Speaking of which, there’s only 3 more days to go! If you’re looking for any other last minute baking ideas, check out these adorable Chocolate Pistachio Christmas tree cookies!
Tis the season for Christmas baking! This week I’m in full prep mode for my 13th annual Christmas baking marathon. Last year I spent an entire weekend in the kitchen and ended up with over 1,000 cookies. That’s a new personal record!

I remember the first time I had any sort of freeze dried fruit. It was an orange segment decorating the top of a decadent, flourless, chocolate cake. I was blown away by how light and airy the orange piece was. It seemed to dissolve in my mouth so quickly, almost like cotton candy, but the flavour was so bright and intense.

Earlier this week, we were invited over to my best friend’s house for a belated birthday celebration for her mum. My friend is an insanely good cook, and she prepared an incredible meal of roast lamb, chicken, veggies and saffron rice. As stuffed as we were, we still managed to finish the meal with an epic dessert featuring not one, but six cheesecakes!
I made this caramel popcorn recipe for the first time more than a decade ago. I was blown away by how quick and easy it was to make. I was even more blown away by how quick and easy it was to eat!
