Doughnut Ice Cream Sandwiches

When NetFlorist sends you doughnuts the logical thing to do is make Doughnut Ice Cream Sandwiches. Of course you can eat them as is but who would not love Doughnut Ice Cream Sandwiches? Ice cold, sweet, creamy, doughy pleasure all in one bite. I can’t believe it isn’t a “thing”.   Of course, the easiest way to all that pleasure is to use store bought ice cream but you can make this even more special with homemade ice cream. And…

Olive Oil Espresso Choc Chip Cookies

I just said that I find baking cookies more of a mission than what it is worth but it was impossible not to make these Olive Oil Espresso Choc Chip Cookies. I came across a photo for the recipe on Instagram and immediately made a note that I had to make Shellie Froidevaux’s recipe. And when Baleia asked me if I wanted to give a bottle of their Extra Virgin Olive Oil away, I knew this recipe was going to be perfect to announce…

Almond Butter Biscuit

For the life of me I can not remember where I saw these Flourless Almond Butter Cookies from Heartbeet Kitchen but I was immediately drawn to the idea of baking with almond butter and bonus that the recipe had very few other ingredients as well.

Rich, velvety passion fruit curd on a buttery shortbread.  Moreish on a whole other level! I spent quite a bit of time thinking of what recipe to make with olive oil…

Vegan No Bake Granola Bars

These Vegan No Bake Granola Bars have become my afternoon pick me up snack of choice. I think they are just great as a snack for work or a healthier school lunchbox treat.It contains no refined sugars and is packed with seeds for crunch and texture. I toasted the oats for added flavour and I think the addition of the cinnamon, vanilla and cocoa is essential. The original recipe from The Mimimalist Baker called for the addition of either maple syrup or honey…

Berry Parfait l heinstirred.com

This Berry Parfait is somewhere between a parfait and a cheesecake. But either way is a quick and easy dessert with not much fuss. I love the play of the sweet preserved berries with the more tart fresh berries. It makes the dessert not overly sweet. Texture is always important in a dessert like this otherwise it is just a mush. The preserved berries are chewy, the fresh strawberry slices add a crispiness and a beautiful red colour, while the…
