Strawberries and Cream Pavlova

Read Article →

I almost didn't put this recipe up because it's just too easy. I could've done so many fancy things with this pavlova (strawberry fluid gel, meringue shards, diplomat cream, and strawberry powder were all thoughts floating around in my mind), but I didn't. Sometimes, all you need is a few fresh strawberries and some sweetened whipped cream.

Tomato Bruschetta on Homemade Bread

Read Article →

You know those recipes that aren't really recipes? This is one of them. I'm pretty sure there's a million "recipes" for bruschetta out there with different ratios of tomatoes to basil, but this is just my version. Nothing too fancy, just good homemade bread, ripe tomatoes, and fresh basil. This is my absolute favourite way to enjoy tomatoes - no cooking, no fussing, no worries.

Mascarpone, Rhubarb, and Vanilla Bean Verrine with Oat Streusel

Read Article →

This is a super great dessert for spring and summer dinner parties, for many reasons - minimal oven time, simple, fresh, and perfect to make ahead. Not that I would know anything about dinner parties because I don't even have a dining table in order to have people over for dinner, but I can imagine. Or, even better, for a picnic! Instead of glasses, make them in jars and keep them in the cooler and the streusel in a separate container. Once again, not that I would know because I don't have a cooler.

Strawberry Cream Puffs

Read Article →

There's a farmers market that happens every Saturday right near my apartment. It's one of my favourite things about summer - fresh veggies and fruit, local honey, homemade breads, all kinds of stuff! It's a great little market and always has awesome fresh produce. But I work on Saturdays now and I usually get off around 2 or 3pm. The market closes at 3pm and everything is usually cleaned out long before then. So you can imagine how excited I was when I went to the farmers market at 3:05 pm and there were still a few punnets of strawberries left!!
