We’ve flipped the calendar to June now, but Mother Nature is still not co-operating!  It’s cool and windy and grey and wet and disappointing! But here at Sweet Times Two, we’re just going to pretend it’s warm and proceed with some summertime recipes.  Today, I’m going to share with you two variations on a simple […]

Today we’re featuring a pink shower that I hosted for my daughter.  She’s always been a pink fanatic! Below is our pink candy bar that was one of the take-aways for our guests. The wall decorations are made from Dollar Store wrapping paper and foam hearts. We had lots of  pink decorations in the main party room […]

Recipes for these bars are all over the internet and they don’t vary much from one recipe to another.  I have to admit that I was first attracted to the recipe because “Lunchlady” was in the title! What is a lunchlady anyway?  We didn’t have lunchladies when I went to school nor when I was […]

Wasn’t this long weekend picture perfect?  We had three sunny, warm weekend days in a row.  What did you get up to? I spent hours in the kitchen preparing this delectable dessert – NOT!!  I didn’t even have to turn on the oven for this one.  I used a purchased dark chocolate shell to hold […]

This month, our group of volunteers met again with our budding bakers to create some tasty treats.  These kids have really improved over the course of our sessions and we have the pictures to prove it! This yummy morsel is a re-make of the traditional pineapple upside down cake.  By turning it into a cupcake, […]

Is it spring where you live?  It sure looks like spring here!  Bazinga…don’t you love that word…Mother Nature fools us again!  We had snow on Sunday and we’re back to winter coats and tuques and mittens!  The only good thing about this weather is that I can squeeze in one more comfort cookie before all […]

This is another delightful dessert that could easily be used for Mother’s Day.  It’s moist sponge, layered with berries and whipped cream….no buttercream to fuss with and not too sweet…perfect, in my humble opinion!  I used the Cake Boss’ recipe for the sponge cake and I was pleasantly surprised.  You do have to spend some […]

This is the best craft I’ve come across in a long time!  Thank you, Pinterest! I did it with two fourteen year-old girls, but I’m sure it would be suitable for crafters of almost any age (with parental support for the young ones).  It looks like tie-dyeing but without the mess!  Where was this idea […]

This Sunday is a special day set aside to honour mothers.  It’s the most important, and in my opinion one of the most difficult jobs around….and it lasts a lifetime with no retirement!  The rewards, however, are unsurpassed.  This Mother’s Day, we’re taking my Mom (and Dad) out.  This recipe is something I would prepare […]

What a sloppy looking mess on that cookie sheet!!  I’m not ashamed to post this, though, because the other photos of this cookie that I found on the internet are just as bad!!  Why then would I even bother to try these cookies out?  Momofuku is quite the trendy restaurant in NYC and now here […]
