Cranberry Pecan Baked Brie

It’s no contest – my favourite appetizer for Christmas time is baked brie. I adore cheese, and a wheel of brie all goey & yummy right from the oven is at the top of my list!

Meet my newest baked brie concoction: cranberry pecan baked brie. And if you want more appetizer recipes for all of your holiday gatherings this year, make sure to slide down to the bottom of this post for more ideas from my blogging friends.Continue reading

Whole Wheat Oatmeal Coconut Cookies (An Aussie Bites Knockoff Recipe)

Have you ever tried those “Aussie Bites” from Costco? SO addicting. They’re like little mini cakelets (that’s a word in my books) filled with all sorts of flavourful ingredients like oats, coconut and dried fruit.

I modified a Aussie Bites knockoff recipe, added some cookie-ish ingredients to it and the result was YUM.Continue reading

It’s my no-fail, always-works, so-yummy banana bread recipe with lots of delicious, natural ingredients. You can bake it with traditional brown sugar, or try it with my new favourite sweetener: Lantic-Rogers Organic Coconut SugarContinue reading

German Baking: Marble Bundt Cake

I finally had a day last week to bake, and it was wonderful. I’ve missed baking. I find it so relaxing!

(Note: This recipe & blog post was originally published in November of 2013 and I’ve now updated it with new photos! So, no, I’m not currently pregnant but I AM craving cake.)

It’s slightly dangerous, though. I’m a huge fan of eating baked goods too. This marble bundt cake I made last week only lasted a couple of days. I’ll say that’s due to my hungry hubby and not my pregnant, cake-loving self. Yes. That’s it.Continue reading
