Whether you’re currently spoken for or not, try not to be a romantic scrooge and at the very least, have something chocolatey. I’ve even … Continue reading »

We stepped off the Eurostar early Sunday afternoon and stepped right into a race to squeeze in our packed itinerary.

Brownie Bites

I find I take full advantage of my friends growing older. It’s the opportune time to bake some treats that aren’t up to me to consume in entirety. As a close friend of mine recently turned 21, I decided to reap the benefits. When baking for a party there are a few things that need … Continue reading »

Bringing Home The Dough….

I recently read in a magazine that men are attracted to women who smell like (wait for it…) doughnuts. Now to clarify, I’m not one to be taken in by articles in magazines, I generally buy them for fashion purposes but that struck me as something fairly interesting.

Order Some Oreos?

I’m particularly interested in trying to configure desserts to make ultimate delights. After being lucky enough to stumble on my new go-to brownie recipe, I couldn’t resist the opportunity to inject some new and equally exciting flavour to the mix. A quick poke around the cupboard reduced me to just one option. Not for lack … Continue reading »
