This week was my husband’s birthday, so of course, I had to make another cake! Two flavours that my husband loves are banana cake and cream cheese frosting. I was inspired to combine those two elements with a bananas Foster filling, which contained bananas and toasted pecans in brown sugar and rum caramel.
Yesterday was my birthday! This was my 2nd birthday on lockdown, so I decided to make myself a birthday cake. Since we were celebrating both my birthday and Mother’s Day this weekend, I thought that something spring-themed in both flavour and decoration would be nice.
I was inspired by a French YouTube video to make a lemon-lime tart. After 3 tries, I made the perfect tart!
My Mexican Hot Chocolate Cookies filled with Dulce de Leche were so tasty and have been such a popular recipe, I decided to try another stuffed cookie. This time decided to work with my Next Level Chocolate Chip Cookies. I thought they would be too sweet with dulce de leche inside but figured some chocolate ganache would work well.

Over the years, I’ve picked up a few tricks that make biscuits with lots of flaky layers every time! I have shared this recipe before but this time, there is a YouTube video to go along with it 🙂

You can alter the base recipe with the toppings of your choice, including tomatoes, fresh herbs, olives, potatoes, peppers and many more! I have even used this recipe to make focaccia art! Given how much we …
I’m on a bit of a dulce de leche kick these days… It’s so easy to make and I actually like it better than regular caramel. It has a tangy and nutty undertone to it and it stays soft, even when cool. This weekend I wanted to see if I could make cookies stuffed with …
For my latest YouTube video, I made one of my favourite quiche-like tarts. I came up with this recipe while doing my Great British Bake-Off bake along back in the fall.
