Hello world! Long time no see. Literally! The past few weeks have been very surreal as we’ve been self isolating for the better part of a month now. I’ve had a hard time mustering up the energy to write a post, but I thought it was about time I got back in the saddle.
Raspberry Pistachio Friands
I had intended to share these last week, but I couldn’t get organized enough to put this post together. We have been deep in the throes of wedding planning for the past few months. As a result, I have been working on all sorts of fun creative projects, but I want to hold off sharing them until after the big day. It hasn’t left a lot of time for extra baking on the side, so this blog may seem a bit slow until after June 1st. I should be back on track after that, at least until we disappear for our honeymoon!

Peppermint Pinwheel Cookies
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.
Happy New Year everyone! I took a bit of a break over the holiday season while visiting family, but now I’m back and ready to take on 2020 with gusto! We rang in the new year surrounded by great friends, a stunning dinner, and these mini tiramisu cupcakes! Continue reading “Tiramisu Cupcakes”
Chocolate Pistachio Christmas Tree Cookies
Happy Sunday everyone! I have been delayed posting this recipe as I have been knee deep in cookie dough for the past week, and have been busy running last minute errands 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!

15 Christmas Baking Recipes
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!
Mini Gingerbread Houses
December is finally here! If you haven’t already started counting down the days until Christmas, now’s the time to start. What better way to kick off the season than with decorating a gingerbread house or twenty?
Alright folks, it’s time to get real. Today I’m going to tell you about how these these “easy, no-bake treats” became the bane of my existence. If you’re having trouble imagining what could possibly go wrong when making such a simple, innocent looking bar, don’t worry. You’re about to find out.
