My Favorite Recipes
Hot Out The Oven
Lemon Easter Cut Out Cookies
These cute little lemon Easter cut out cookies are made with a buttery cookie base and are filled with a tangy lemon curd, then dusted with a layer of sweet powdered sugar. They are soft and delicate and have depth to each bite.
Carrot Cake Cookies
These carrot cake cookies are soft, tender, super moist and are packed with freshly grated carrots, hearty oats, toasted pecans, coconut and sweet raisins. The cookies are then sandwiched together with a classic, fluffy cream cheese icing, making them the ultimate treat!
Chocolate Coconut Cake
This chocolate coconut cake has 3 layers and has a soft and light chocolatey crumb. It’s slathered in coconut buttercream icing and covered in toasted, nutty coconut. It’s a fun change on a classic layered cake and is perfect for any occasion.
Lemon cream is a sweet, tangy, light and creamy dessert topping or filling that’s a cross between lemon curd and whipping cream. It has a soft, velvety texture and adds a pop of colour to many desserts. Not to mention it only has 4 ingredients!
Homemade Chocolate Wafer Cups
Homemade chocolate wafer cups are fun, easy and make a super impressive dessert! These make ahead treats are essentially mini chocolate bowls that can be filled with a variety of fillings like ice cream, whipped cream, pudding, custard or fruit.
Irish Cream Chocolate Truffles
These Irish cream chocolate truffles are rich, creamy and super decadent! They are an irresistible fusion of silky smooth chocolate ganache and velvety rich Irish cream liqueur.
