Autumn Baked Brie

Autumn Baked Brie

With Apples, Cinnamon, Pecans, and Cranberries

Posted on October 15, 2015
Autumn Baked Brie With Apples, Cinnamon, Pecans, and Cranberries is a cheesy, gooey, delight. Feel's kind of high brow, and can be served as an appetizer with wine, or as a dessert, with wine. I guess you don't have to serve it with wine, but yeah. The wheel was a buffalo brie from Prince Edward County. It wasn't strong like brie cheese tends to be, but mild and salty, pairing beautifully with the sweetness of the apples and brown sugar, and the tartness of the cranberries.

Easy Apple Blooms

Easy Apple Blooms

Fresh apple pastries off the grill

Posted on October 15, 2015
This recipe started with me seeing some crazy 30 second video on Facebook. Easy Apple Blooms looked - just that - easy! But I couldn't just do what I saw online. No! I needed to take it up a notch. Make these things the most amazing pastry thingadooeys that you have ever put in your pie-hole! And I did. Cinnamon, lemon juice, and cream cheese icing take these from pretty apple pies to some sort of danish delight. Try these with your leftover pastry next time you bake.

Spiced Carrot Cake

Spiced Carrot Cake

With Cream Cheese Icing

Posted on October 06, 2015
You can't finish your perfect Thanksgiving meal without dessert, and what better way to usher in autumn than with Spiced Carrot Cake With Cream Cheese Icing! Imagine a dense cake, scenting the air with the fragrance of fall, ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg. It's moist but not crumbly. It's perfectly topped with thick layers of sweet cream cheese icing. This is a cake to remember and could you believe that I made it on the grill?

 

Baking time varies widely from cake pan to cake pan, so I recommend checking at the 20 to 25 minute mark, and every 5 to 7 minutes afterwards. My cake pan was 6x6x3-inches and it took nearly 45 minutes for the cake to be completely done.

Peaches And Cream Cupcakes

Peaches And Cream Cupcakes

With Peach Drizzle

Posted on August 25, 2015
It's peach season. It's CNE* season too. Summer is winding down, not that this prevents me from grilling in any way, and in homage to both peach season and the CNE, I have made a portable and peachy dessert that you will love. These Peaches And Cream Cupcakes With Peach Drizzle, were light, and sweet, and definitely easy to make. 

*CNE is the Canadian National Exhibition, Canada's largest fair, with the best and most wackiest street food, rides and vendors from everywhere. It's a big deal.

Grilled S'mores Poutine

Grilled S'mores Poutine

Even better than it sounds

Posted on August 12, 2015
While eating dinner at my Grandparents' home, we were discussing different kinds of poutine. Then, out of nowhere, Grilled S'mores Poutine just kind of popped out of our mouths. The idea snowballed until we couldn't contain it any longer. But why would we want to? Graham cookie "fries" topped with marshmallow "cheese curds" and topped with chocolate ganache "gravy"? I have chills just typing about it. This will be a hit the next time you have a sleepover I can guarantee.

Red Velvet Cheesecake

Red Velvet Cheesecake

With Cream Cheese Icing

Posted on July 28, 2015
I don't need a reason to have cheesecake. I could have cheesecake every day, no matter what. That's probably why there are more than ten recipes for cheesecake, or cheesecake related desserts on this blog. Red Velvet Cheesecake With Cream Cheese Icing seemed like the next logical step in cheesecake recipe making. I had two reasons to make this. One, it's National Cheesecake Day, and you HAVE to have cheesecake on National Cheesecake Day, and two, I wanted to make something special for a friend who really helped us out. In both I believe that I've succeeded because dang! This cheesecake was amazing.

Rustic Strawberry Pie

Rustic Strawberry Pie

On The Pizza Stone

Posted on July 02, 2015
It's strawberry season and I'm over the whole Strawberry Shortcake thing, so I decided to make a Rustic Strawberry Pie on my Pizza Stone, and boy was it ever delicious! In fact these awesome strawberry recipes over the past week have been so amazing, even my picky husband is enjoying them, and he doesn't like strawberries - only because of the seeds - so that's saying something. The pastry for this recipe is super easy and I will be making it again for other pies. Just remember that it needs to chill for an hour before use.

Strawberry Quesadillas

Strawberry Quesadillas

With Cheesecake Ice Cream

Posted on June 30, 2015
It's strawberry season. I guess that's my favorite holiday. YES, it should be a holiday. And there should be a holiday dedicated to bacon, and one for cheesecake too. But I digress. These Strawberry Quesadillas With Cheesecake Ice Cream are insane. And by insane, we have blow-your-mind, melt your brain, oh my gosh that's delicious, and what the heck was she thinking all wrapped up in a delicious tortilla, then tossed on the grill with fresh chocolate STUFF (somewhere between a sauce, and a ganache and a chocolate shell), and all of the strawberries. Oh yeah, then we topped it with HOMEMADE cheesecake ice cream.
