A Page From the Past

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 […]

Spring Sponge

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 […]

A Gift Mom Will Actually Use

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 […]

Eating in the Big Apple

Between vacation time and Christmas, it’s been too long since I’ve visited this blog.  But we’re back to reality and routine once again. Our trip to NYC was great… full of Christmas spirit and good things to eat.  There are many terrific restaurants to choose from and every meal was a delight.  One of my favourite excursions […]

Baking Chicago Style

We just returned from 3 days in the wonderful city of Chicago.  Fortunately, Sandy didn’t “dampen” our trip too much.  As always when we’re in Chicago, we had great meals.  My favourite was definitely the lunch in the Signature Lounge at the top of the Hancock Centre.  We had  a corner seat by the window so […]

Baking Show 2012

September 30, 2012 Well it is the last day of the month and what better way to enjoy the day than spending it at the Baking Show at the International Centre with Mary Ann.  “Girls Day Out”! Heading out at 9 a.m., no time to stop at ‘Tim’s” as we had to get there early […]

Success!

The picture says it all!

The Yummy Town of Woodbridge

The weatherman called for a rainy weekend….wrong again! How does he keep his job?  By Saturday at noon, the skies were blue again and my hubby and I decided to venture outside to make the most of the day.  We were in the mood for a good pizza.  Now, we used to have a terrific local Italian […]

Just Getting Started

We’re two friends who have supported each other through the trials and tribulations of raising children and balancing family and careers.  Many of our fondest memories have taken place in the kitchen or at cooking and baking shows and classes.  We’re passionate about food and entertaining and our dream has always been to share this […]
