Chocolate crinkles, also known as crackles, have been a staple in my Christmas baking for a long time. I love the way the dark chocolate of the cookie contrasts against the dusting of white icing sugar.
I believe the original name of this recipe refers to these cookies as “big soft ginger cookies”, but I prefer to call them ginger sparkles. Their thin, sugary coating makes them glitter in the light, making them not only beautiful, but delicious!
The holidays are upon us, and if you know me at all, you’ll realize what that means. It has nothing to do with being festive or merry, or taking time to enjoy the simple pleasures of the season. It means it’s time to bake an obscene amount of cookies. Seriously. A ridiculous amount. In a single weekend.
These holiday rice krispie treats are simple, fast, and loaded with childhood nostalgia. They were one of my favourite treats growing up, and even though I’ve made them dozens of times, I still have to look up a recipe to remember what ratio of marshmallows to Rice Krispies to use.
One of the best things about winter time is making big pots of hearty soups and stews. This beef stew is one of my absolute favourites. To maximize its deliciousness, it does require a little bit of extra love and effort, but it’s not particularly difficult, and it is definitely worth it.
I. Love. Cookies. If I could only choose one baked good to eat for the rest of my life it would be cookies (specifically chocolate chip), and these oatmeal chocolate chip cookies are pretty high up on my list of cookies that I love.
While visiting my family over thanksgiving weekend, a lovely friend of ours gave us a heap of vegetables fresh from her garden including some leeks, a big bag of potatoes, squash, eggplant and some fresh bay leaves. The first thing I made with them was this creamy potato leek soup with bacon.
How often do you find yourself sitting around thinking: “Wow…I could really use some focaccia bread right now.”? If your answer is never, I don’t think we can be friends. I LOVE a good focaccia bread, and this rosemary focaccia is particularly delightful.
You probably never thought you’d hear the words chocolate, oatmeal, spider and cake together in a sentence, but now you have, and trust me, it’s an excellent combination!
These meringue bones are a delectable treat for all your favourite ghouls and goblins! If you’ve never made meringues before, this is a great way to start, since these bones look even better with some imperfections.
