I think it's quite obvious by now that I love holidays and I love entertaining.  However, I often bite off more than I can chew.  With our crazy (abnormal) work hours/schedules, Often I forget that I don't have the time allotment that I used to.

I clearly told my guests be...

I try to include dessert into my meals everytime that I entertain.  I usually let J decide the theme for the dessert.  This time, he chose bacon and maple so we decided to make Maple Bacon Pecan Cheesecakes.

The bacon and pecans were candied (separately) and allowed tocool before getting ch...

Cinnamon Pull-Apart Breakfast Bread

Posted by Trish on September 3, 2012 at 4:50 PM Comments comments (0)

The weather is starting to cool down, so I've been craving for a warm fuzzy breakfast lately.  I decided the night before to roll out some bread for the next morning's breakfast.  I was actually super skeptical of this recipe because it didn't follow the "proper" way that I usually made bread.  I didn't have to feed my yeast and there was no kneading involved.  No knead bread? I know, it's crazy!  So crazy that I have to actually share th...

I am extremely excited to share this with you.  This isn't just any cupcake.  It marks a very special beginning in my life to an adventure.  What adventure?  I can't tell you that just yet, but it will come out sooner or later!

In other news, I've finally re-inhabited a kitchen, but J and I decided we will change our lifestyles a little.  A compromise, sh...

Caramel Hummingbird Cake

Those of you whom own cats may randomly find "presents" left on your door step or pillow case, such as a bird's wing or a pelt of squirrel fur.  Ah, the devotions of love.  I came home to find 3 frozen bananas in my freezer, peels on and all.  When I asked J about it, he explained how him and our friend decided to leave them in there for my return so I could make something out of them. "You know, banana bread or something...".  I prefer my ban...

The J-Dub Cupcake

Posted by Trish on June 13, 2012 at 7:15 PM Comments comments (0)

J once again invited guests and requested for a dessert to be made.  I had to name the resulting dessert after him because he paired the flavours of this concoction in such a unique way, that I initially had doubted the outcome of this decadent fellow.

We started out with the same chocolate cake base as his birthday cake.  The chocolate cake is a moist, dark, rich cake.

Strawberry Angel Shortcakes

I have been dying to make this for the longest time, but I kept waiting until it was strawberry season.  It is the perfect treat to make a dent into my frozen egg whites (from the copious amount of ice cream i've been churning out) and to celebrate Summer's arrival.

I have this thing for William Sonoma.  I ooh and ahh at everything in the store, no matter what it is.  I purchased their seasonal Spiced Pecan Pumpkin Spice Quick Bread Mix (yes it has 2 spices in it's name) during my last visit.  At $16 for a quick mix, I had to do a review.

J's B-day Cake

Posted by Trish on March 26, 2012 at 7:50 PM Comments comments (0)

Of the years that I have known J, this would only be the 2nd time I've ever baked him a b-day cake.  This year was really special as it was the first birthday we celebrated as a married couple.  I'm so glad I got to bake this cake for my best friend on his b-day.

J pulled a "J" in the typical sense.  A dinner outing for 10...
