Tartine Brownies

My summer baking playlist (technically winter Down Under) has been an eclectic mix of Montreal-based band Motel Raphael, Mad Season and Lana Del Rey. Earlier this summer I came across Natasha’s post about her favourite brownies. Even though I already have heaps of brownie recipes in my repertoire, Natasha made these sound so delicious that … Continue reading


Orange and Chocolate Olive Oil Cookies

Three weeks ago I began the last semester of my undergraduate degree at the University of New South Wales in Sydney, Australia. As I complete my degree in Creative Writing and Women’s Studies while on a student exchange, I’m taking two English Lit courses (Literary Animals, Monsters and Machines, as well as Gothic Cultures) and … Continue reading


Dulce de Leche Cupcakes

Earlier this summer, I took a break from binge-watching the new season of Orange Is the New Black (How great is that show! Such a talented, refreshing and strong female cast. And love the writing as well.) to bake a batch of these dulce de leche cupcakes for my sister’s friend’s birthday. The birthday girl … Continue reading


Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

Before my move to Australia, my friend Annika visited me in Montreal. Annika and I met 5 years ago in London when I was backpacking through the UK. We stayed in touch, meeting up in Barcelona and Lausanne over the years. That’s got to be one of my favourite things about travelling: connecting with people … Continue reading


Classic Diner-Style Chocolate Pie

30C hot hot heat, F1 Grand Prix weekend with food trucks lining up at the Olympic Stadium and Monkland street party going on and anonymous billionaires are hiding free beer in the city. It’s officially summer in Montreal! This recipe is great for summer since you don’t need to turn on the oven. The filling … Continue reading


Ménage à Trois Cookies

Back in April when I was supposed to be studying for my final exam, I was perusing other baking blogs. Natasha’s post about soft batch chocolate chip cookies over at Butter Baking caught my attention. I haven’t added a recipe to my chocolate chip cookies section in over a year. The situation must be remedied! … Continue reading


Butterscotch Pudding Tarts

A new Baked cookbook is on its way! As if I didn’t have enough recipes to get through as it is. But of course, Baked Occasions is now on my wishlist. This recipe for butterscotch pudding tarts is from the first Baked cookbook. I’ve been eying it for some weeks now since my dad likes … Continue reading


Peaches and Cream Pie

While typing up this recipe I was listening to the hockey game on the radio, Montreal Habs versus New York Rangers. I got distracted, which is why I’m only getting back to this recipe now. Games on the radio get so tense! Sadly, we didn’t make it to the playoffs. Til next season, GoHabsGo! The … Continue reading


Lemon Chess Pie

Pie is not my forte. More specifically, flaky, golden crust eludes me. You might have noticed the abundances of cakes on my blog which is in stark contrast to the amount of pie recipes offered. My recent purchase of the Elsen sisters’ The Four & Twenty Blackbirds Pie Book will bring about some change. Despite … Continue reading


Katharine Hepburn Brownies

Did anyone else just assume that Katharine and Audrey were related? I was under the impression that the two legendary actresses were sisters, oops! On Wednesdays, the Montreal Gazette publishes a food section. Last week, the paper featured a brownie recipe by the late Katharine Hepburn. Turns out she was famous for this recipe as … Continue reading
