If you had to come up with two reasons you are thankful for your freedom, what would they be?? I pondered this question while baking up some dark chocolate coconut scones, and two things popped in my mind. The first thing, is that I am free to be as creative as I want in the kitchen. I don’t have to be put in a box and told exactly what to do from a recipe book or a website. I can create freely with my own ideas and mix something up that fits my mood. The second thing I am thankful for, is the freedom I have to write a blog and have all my friends test out some amazing recipes. So go ahead, take a moment to be thankful for you freedom, and search whatever you would like from my site and bake away! I suggest you start with these scones, they will not disappoint! Read more
This week’s recipe is perfect for the fall and winter seasons. Why is that, Mr. Male Baker, you might ask? Well, let me tell you. When I took my first bite of a pumpkin chocolate brownie right out of the oven, I was in love with the combination of tastes. Not only did these brownies take my taste buds for a ride, but they made my kitchen smell like pumpkin pie. They are a little on the cake-ier side of the spectrum of brownies, but they still taste superb. So go ahead and try these out the next time you have some guests over for a party. Read more
Winter is here. When I woke up this morning to blustering snow outside, I knew that baking season was back! In the last 24 hours, I have thought more about baking than I have in the last 6 months! Also, in the last 24 hours, the city of Calgary has gone from green grass and fall leaves to a white abyss. Welcome back, Winter! This recipe is a tribute to winter and its many conflicting qualities. I introduce to you the very delicious, dark chocolate salted oatmeal cookies!
