My Favorite Recipes
Hot Out The Oven
These minty Christmas chocolate brownies are festive, addictive and hands down the best fudgy homemade brownies around. They make a cute addition to holiday platters and cookie exchanges.
Nanaimo squares are an easy no-bake recipe that everyone loves. They are chocolatey and minty with a creamy custard filling and a sweet coconutty base.
These pistachio cranberry shortbread cookies are buttery, crisp and full of flavour! The cranberries add sweetness and give the cookies a slightly chewy texture while the pistachios add a little nutty crunch. They are the perfect cookie to celebrate the holidays, for cookie exchanges and to share with friends.
These chocolate candy cane cookies are soft, chewy and super festive for the holidays. They are perfectly minty and chocolatey with candy cane bits scattered throughout. Not to mention, they are easy and fun to whip up for a cookie exchange. Enjoy with a tall glass of cold milk.
These Chelsea buns are extra sticky, gooey and topped with walnuts and sweet maraschino cherries. The buns are soft and buttery with hints of cinnamon throughout. They are the perfect treat for cottage weekends, brunch parties and holidays. The recipe can be prepped ahead too!
This classic English toffee (also known as Almond Roca) is an addictive holiday treat! It’s buttery and crunchy, has a chocolatey layer and is topped with toasted almonds! English toffee makes a great addition to holiday cookie platters, cookie exchanges or gift giving!
