An “Egg”cellent idea!

Today’s post is a first for Sweet Times Two: a craft.  I used to be an avid crafter and then I moved away from it for a bit.  Our daughter’s wedding last summer brought me back to my crafting roots and I’ve been back at it ever since.  This craft is very simple, but the […]

Chocolate Peanut Butter Eggs

The calendar says that spring is here and that Easter is just around the corner.  It’s too bad Mother Nature isn’t co-operating.  Can you believe the snow again this morning?  Snow or no snow, Easter IS coming.  I decided to make an Easter confection with one of the young ladies with whom I volunteer.  We had […]

Luck O’ the Irish

If we weren’t too old and disinterested in social media, I’m sure this picture would be posted all over facebook…but I saved it just for you!  Yesterday was St. Patrick’s Day and our daughter arrived for a visit (to mooch dinner) with a bag full of seasonal goodies to humiliate her parents.  She walked in the […]

A New Version of Lemon Tarts

I think I might have a problem.  You see, for the last post, I was motivated by a song.  Now, for this post, my choice was influenced by the cover of the most recent edition of Canadian Living magazine.  I didn’t know I was so suggestible! Lemon is such a springy flavour.  I love it…any time […]

“Put da lime in da coconut”

It’s amazing how quickly our weather has changed!  A couple of posts ago, I had photos of a snowstorm.  Today the sun is shining brightly and the birds are chirping.  I’m hopeful that spring is just around the corner.  So just like the seasons change, so does my baking.  Today I baked up a lime […]

For the Dogs

I’ve been waiting for a logical excuse to feature a picture of our cute pup, Reina.  After all, you can’t go posting pictures of pets willy nilly all over a baking blog!  We rescued Reina over 2 years ago and she’s proved to be a sweetheart who takes every opportunity to smother you with wet […]

It’s Contagious!

Does the thought of baking with a group of 12 children fill you with terror?  Does it conjure up images of spilled milk, flying confectioner’s sugar and high-pitched whining “It’s my turn to stir.”?  Four of us willingly volunteer once a month to take on this challenge…and we have just as much fun as the […]

Snowy Baking

It’s late February and winter is still going strong.  I’m not a fan of winter, but I cannot deny the beauty of what Ol’ Man Winter created in my backyard this week.  Everything was covered in a soft, white blanket of fluff. It was a serene and peaceful scene.  I wanted to stay cocooned inside my warm […]
