Pass the gin..... ger snaps.

My favourite cookies at Tim Horton's are the Ginger Molasses Cookies without the extra sugar on top. There is one Tim's that makes it like that. All the other locations make the them with the extra sugar on top.

I'm not a fan of the grainy texture from the extra sugar. I made my own cookies so I won't have to go to that specific Tim's all the time.

Beware of the raisins.

I don't care what anyone says. Eating freshly baked WHITE bread is the best.

I used the Kitchen Aid to make some French Bread.

Why so crabby?

People ask if I'm more of a baker or a cook. That's a tough question for me to answer. Why?

Sometimes I feel like I'm more of a cook because I'm not always exact in my baking measurements. I try to "follow recipes to the tee" but I usually stray a little. I'll add an extra tablespoon of this or 1/16 cup of that. What can I say? I'm kind of a free spirit.   (Ps 1 tbsp=1/16 cup)

Other times I feel like I'm more of a baker because... I'm always baking.

Maybe I'm a baker with an attitude of a cook.

Anyways, it doesn't matter if I'm more of a cook or a baker.
It just matters that people don't die or get food poisoning after eating my food.

For Father's Day, I made Crab Alfredo with Fresh Pasta
...and no one has gotten sick from my food, yet.

Don't let that MAN GO and get away with my cake!

Well, I suppose I did make the cake for him so I guess he is allowed to run away with it.
I was inspired to make a cake just like Trish's Sponge Cake for Father's Day.

It looks like a Strawberry Cake with a Dark Chocolate collar.

Hey - That's my cuit!

Cuit. It sounds like an inappropriate word but according to wiktionary, it means:
  • 1. part, portion, share
  • 2. property, possession, means
  • 3. portion of food
    So cuit is is not a "bad" word. Go ahead and use it more often.

    Now what is it that I'm not really willing to share?

    White Chocolate and Cranberry Biscuits.
    Raisin Biscuits.

    Well maybe I'll give you one or two... since it is a BIscuit.

    Sometimes you just have to get pruney.

    Ways to get pruney:
    • - staying in the hot tub too long... too much water
    • - apparently being poorly hydrated... not enough water
    • - not wearing sunscreen and getting sun damage - not recommended
    • - always wrinkling your forehead- not recommended
    • - eating mini prune loaves - totally recommended

    I'm MOVING!

    I'm moving to South Africa!

    Just kidding. I'm not physically moving anywhere. I will still be in London for the World Cup.

    My blog, on the other hand, has moved to new home at The old address will still work but my new one is much easier to remember.

    Sometimes the easy things are good and I like good things.

    Not the usual Betty Crocker

    This was my first cookie decorating experience. It was messy. It was interesting.

    Oh and it was really fun.

    Why? Because I made an Upside Down Cake                 ... yay!

    Oh I didn't make the regular Pineapple Upside Down Cake... but a Caramel Apple one!

    Sweet Noodles

    Would you like some Lo Mein?
    It's a Chinese dish with noodles. It often contains vegetables and some type of meat or seafood.

    So would you like to try some?
    I just happen to have some Lo Mein with broccoli, carrots and ham... a cupcake!
