Eggnog Scones during that darn blurry time of year...

While some people are probably still in a turkey coma… others could be standing in some ridiculous line, excited because they just scored an awesome deal on Black Friday.  Personally I think it’s crazy that for almost a month (some would argue OVER a month) the lines between the Autumn season and upcoming Winter holidays have been blurred.  The retail world appears to be more excited for the Jolly Old Man to come than your average little boy or girl!  Personally – meh!  BUT I will say, now that Halloween is over....more

Caramel Apple Cheesecake - Gluten Free

I love fall! – Especially the fall that happens BEFORE the rainy season sets in.  Those couple precious weeks when the leaves vibrantly change colours, the lake settles and turquoise blues and emerald green hues glisten.  Crisp. Fresh. Spicey.  What’s not to love?!? Caramel Apples to me screams fall.  The ooey-gooey caramel, the crisp apples, even better when seasoned with a hint of cinnamon and brown sugar. Mmmmmmmmm We were headed over to a friend’s place for dinner…first time....more

Pumpkin Ale Bread and a SPOOKTACULAR Wreath!

Not Just A Chick With the season of all things pumpkin, apple, cinnamon and spice upon us I just had to jump on the bandwagon...and I may as well do it with a bang!  Double Whammy! A wicked Fall recipe, AND a quick-n-easy Fall craft!

Chocolate Strawberry Pavlova - a toast to Summer 2012!

I have been a BAD BLOGGER.  YUP, it's not that I haven't been cooking or baking or creating or even obsessing over what "my next post" will be - I've honestly just let "life" get in the way.  September - practically came...and went.  I'm another year older (eeek, that's enough stress on it's own!), the weather has started to turn... and it seems like when I get a chance to sit down in front of the computer and type, something else always seems to pop up!  WELL......more
