Last week I made this decadent hot chocolate, and I couldn’t stop thinking about how it would taste with a giant homemade marshmallow on top. I’ve never made marshmallows before, so now seemed like the perfect opportunity to give it a go!
Have you ever made hot chocolate before? Not hot cocoa, but real hot chocolate, made with nothing but chocolate chunks, hot milk and just a little bit of sugar? If you haven’t yet, you need to. It will probably change your life (or at least your expectations of hot chocolate).
This week I was feeling a little under the weather, so I decided to make a big pot of my favourite Flu Fighter Chicken Noodle Soup! I discovered the recipe for this soup a couple of years ago, and it has since become a staple of mine to help me make it through the cold and flu season.
This past week we had the pleasure of celebrating the birthday of one of our favourite humans! No birthday celebration is complete without a cake, so I baked this chocolate Baileys cake and frosted it with a baileys infused buttercream.
I think split pea and ham soup might just be my favourite soup. It’s not a particularly pretty soup, but it’s packed with flavour and doesn’t require a bunch of fancy or complicated ingredients.
Here we are, the day before New Years Eve. It’s hard to believe how quickly this year has flown by. In fact, it seems like just yesterday that I was writing my first post for this blog, but as it just so happens, December 22nd marked the 6 month anniversary of Indecision & Cake! Please…hold your applause until the end.
I made these little meringue mushrooms for the first time several years ago to stick on a bûche de Noël. I completely fell in love with them for both their looks, and their taste! Not only are they a great conversation starter, they’re also easier to make than you’d think!
The award for best shortbread cookies in the world goes to my Dad. Hands down, no argument. His shortbread was rich and buttery, with just the right amount of sweetness. It was impossible to ever eat just one.
Ah, the annual making of the rum balls…I don’t know what it is about making boozy balls that I enjoy so much. Maybe it’s the booze. Maybe it’s the…booze. Either way, they have become a tradition of mine.
These cranberry & orange almond shortbread cookies may be small, but they are packed full of flavour. The bright, citrusy, orange zest is what really shines in these cookies, while the cranberries add a complimentary tartness against the subtle almond base.
