Dark and Stormy Cocktail! Easy to throw together, even easier to throw down...
A few weeks back, whilst celebrating Bill Beaucoup's birthday and being disgusted by Rosie Beaucoup's broken wrist, I was introduced to the Dark and Stormy. It's the sort of drink that makes you fe...

Nova Scotia Hodge Podge! Grab a pot and some veggies and you're set to make this Maritime favourite... 
If you're a Maritimer, you have probably stuffed your face with lots of fish chowder. Maybe some Screech. Or maybe some Chicken Bones. But at this time of year, it's all about the hodge podge. If y...

Peach Cobbler - brown sugar and peaches combine into a fragrant, sweet and caramelly filling, with a soft doughy topping to give it all some balance.
Do you like peaches? I do. At least, I do when they are de-furred. String beans, kiwis, peaches: what's up with the fuzzy exteriors? When 2.0 and I stood before some peaches at the market, he told ...

Rhubarb Curd - soft, sweet and a little buttery. Serve over strawberries, use in tarts or turnovers, slather over scones or pancakes, or serve atop crusty meringues. 'Tis the season!
On Father's Day, I told Bill Beaucoup that I love him very much and that I'm glad he's my dad. He responded with an eye roll and "whatever." It was pretty touching. Despite his lack of sentimentali...

Six-Inch Chocolate Cake with Chocolate Frosting - quick, moist and delicious. A hat-tip to old school baking with simple ingredients and methods!
When I crave cake, it is the chocolate variety that I want. Tender, sweet, and old-school. (Like 2.0.) Something that can be made with ingredients I already have in the house. Don't tell me I need ...

Boterkoek: Dutch Butter Cake - an almond flavoured snack cake that takes only minutes to pull together. 
Dear Thijs, Welcome to the world! This means nothing coming from a complete stranger, of course, but your mother is one of my dearest friends. I wouldn't be the person I am today without her friend...

Six-inch classic white layer cake - can be infused with lemon, lavender or any other flavour you might like!
Back in 2005, I went to France for Christmas. It was awesome, except that the man sitting next to me on the plane was sucked out of the aircraft via the toilet. The man was sitting next to me when ...

Blueberry Squares - a light and airy meringue topped treat!
2.0 has a routine when we go to visit his mummy, Jackie, by the ocean. As soon as we arrive, 2.0 runs to the washroom yelling, "why did you let me drink all that coffee before the drive?" Jackie sh...

Blueberry Grunt - make this traditional, Nova Scotian favourite with fresh or frozen blueberries. Dumplings swimming in an ocean of simmering blueberries? Perfection!
Whenever I make blueberry grunt, I think of my brother, Adopamop. Mostly because when we were kids we would replace the word "grunt" with an actual grunt. This was endlessly entertaining. (For us.)...

Melt In Your Mouth Shortbreads - four ingredients and a lot of beating!
