Cupcakery and S’more Cupcakes

My favourite new cookbooks are always those by bloggers I follow.  It’s for pretty straightforward reasons – I know I love their recipes and if I always look forward to seeing a new blog post, a book’s worth of new recipes is definitely going to brighten up my day.  I always loved Toni’s relatable posts […]

Everything Sweet and Chocolate Cookiemuffs

I have always been a fan of the Meringue Girls (I loved their first cookbook) – so I was excited to see that they’d branched out from meringues into other sweet treats – so that I can make their delicious treats without ending up with all of the leftover egg yolks in the fridge.  The […]

Salted Caramel Peanut Butter Cupcakes

By two totally objective measures, autumn has arrived.  The first is that the neighbourhood school is now back in session.  I was definitely a bit sad to have our peace and quiet from the local school ended after the break, but it feels like those dreamy, loose unplanned summer days are ending.  Which is sad, […]
