persian-style salad olivier
Salad Olivier.  I grew up on this.  It brings back memories of comfort, home, and more comfort.  When I pronounce the name of this dish, I say it with a Persian accent  (Saalaad Oh-live-ee-eh) not because I'm trying to be silly but because I truly mean it t...

pear upside-down cake
I love apples, but replacing the common fruit with pears (which I also love) can somehow make a  cake or pie into something even more special.  If you're feeling super fancy you can try this recipe from Martha Stewart.  It's not too tough overall, except fo...

vanilla birthday cake with vanilla buttercream frosting
My daughter turned one six months ago.  That's how long it's taken for me to get this post up.  In my defence, it's been a busy six months.  I went back to work after a year on mat leave, my daughter started daycare and it's just be go, go, go.  And it's be...

berried treasure
About a month ago I busted out my old recipe for white bean vanilla cake .  I decided to jazz it up and added a layer of mixed frozen berries.  It turned out great - the sweet-sourness of the berries really goes well with the flavour of this vanilla cake. H...

gluten-free vanilla almond-flour cake
Time for another gluten-free paleo number! We'd bought almond flour from Costco a few months ago and I hadn't used it yet, so I looked for a vanilla cake recipe using almond flour.  I found many but this one was the most straight-forward so I gave it a go. ...

stretch-your-dollar iced chai latte
I take a lot of walks with the baby these days.  It's a nice part of our day that I really enjoy.  I like to have an iced chai latte while we're on our walks to keep cool on these hot sunny days we're having.  But I found that the iced chai lattes at places...

maple raisin apple oatmeal muffins (aka breakfast muffins)
I've been mia lately because, as you may have guessed from my last post, we have a newborn! :)  She keeps us quite busy, but I stole a few moments to come back to my little corner of the web to write this post because I thought it might be useful to other n...
