Salted Brown Butter S’more Tart

I think we can all agree that s'mores are one of the best parts of summer? Sweet, chocolatey and toasty, it taps into the highlight reel of summer, from cottage trips to roasting marshmallows on the stove. Just me? Ok. I thought up this tart yesterday morning, wanting to put all the things I love … Continue reading Salted Brown Butter S’more Tart


Coconut Macaroons with Chocolate Glaze

A few weeks ago, I had an aggressive amount of leftover egg whites.  After about 5 minutes of Googling "leftover egg whites", it became clear there was only one solution.  Coconut macaroons. While I've enjoyed many a macaroon, I had never made them or honestly even known what really went into them.  I've gotta say, … Continue reading Coconut Macaroons with Chocolate Glaze

Salted Caramel Chocolate Tart

Do you have a go-to dessert for potlucks?  One that is quick/easy/delicious/impressive all at once? This is mine. I've been making it for years and keep coming back to it.  It's obviously delicious, y'all know I'm a sucker for sea salt - but it doesn't even require an oven and comes together in under an … Continue reading Salted Caramel Chocolate Tart

Texas Sized Chocolate Chunk Cookies

For a long time, I was adamant that there was only one recipe for chocolate chip cookies that mattered (see Chocolate Chip Cookies).  I was under the impression that they should be relatively flat and chewy with a crisp exterior. But when you have a baking blog, sometimes you need to try new things.  I tried … Continue reading Texas Sized Chocolate Chunk Cookies

Salted Espresso Chocolate Donuts

I am a sucker for salt. It brings brightness of flavour to any baked good.  Cookies tasting a bit flat? Salt. Making a caramel tart? Salt. Chocolate? Salt. I'm not kidding. When I was in Napa, I came across Whole Spice at the Oxbow Public Market.  I could have spent the day there - they … Continue reading Salted Espresso Chocolate Donuts

Guinness Chocolate Donuts

Last St Patrick's Day I made Guinness chocolate cupcakes and proclaimed that all my future chocolate cakes would include Guinness.  I'm glad I decided to do the same with these donuts. Guinness adds a richness and "je ne sais quoi" that makes any chocolate cake or donut unbeatable.  This is the first time I've attempted … Continue reading Guinness Chocolate Donuts

Mexican Chocolate Chili Cookies

I had always heard rumblings of Mexican chocolate desserts that seem classic at first but then hit you with a twinge of spice.  I figured there would be no better time to experiment with it myself than with some authentic Mexican cocoa. This was my second go with this stuff and I cannot stop raving … Continue reading Mexican Chocolate Chili Cookies

Chocolate Hazelnut Raspberry Tart

I'll be honest - I thought of this tart while trying to fall asleep.  In my half-asleep stupor I made the right call of making a note on my phone, because I would have totally forgotten about it otherwise. I took inspiration from my fig tart from a few weeks ago, I had the leftover … Continue reading Chocolate Hazelnut Raspberry Tart

Yellow Cake with Fudge Icing

Everyone has a weakness (or 6) on Instagram.  Whether it be puppy videos, white sand beaches, or weird memes, there's something that you always send to that one friend endlessly. For me, I've become obsessed with cake decorating videos.  It's so satisfying watching the icing smoothed and glaze drip down the side.  Some people are … Continue reading Yellow Cake with Fudge Icing
