 If you like the tang of fresh raspberries then you will love this Raspberry Crumb Cake...a moist yellow cake, with tangy raspberries and a cinnamon crumb topping, it is a perfect addition to a steaming cup of coffee or served with a wedge of sharp cheddar and fruit for breakfast...or even late night kitchen raids! 

Let's face it, anytime, any day, anywhere is a good time for crumb cake!!

When I was a kid, we had a bread man that would drive around the countryside in an old truck peddling baked goods and various packaged treats to farm and country folk that were too busy or had no means of transportation to venture into town.  Every Saturday morning, my friend Kelly and I would anxiously wait down the road for Tom's light blue truck to crest the hill as we clutched our weekly allowance in our hands, chatting ab...

 Not only are these decadent pastries delicious but they are an absolute cinch to make too! The easiest part of this recipe is that it starts with fresh store bought croissants!

...now, I'm sure it is very rewarding to pull these warm, buttery French rolls out of your very own oven and I'm also sure that Jacques Torres would be appalled but, for the love of God, we just don't have time to be cranking croissa...

 Hot fudge pudding cake is a definite favourite in our family...this warm, brownie-like cake, smothered in a rich velvety sauce is quite delicious with scoops of vanilla ice cream, not to mention super easy to whip up for those nights that you are stuck for a quick dessert idea!

 To make this saucy little number, you will need: all purpose flour, baking powder, unsweetened cocoa powder, salt, granulated...

 November 11th. is a very special day in which we honour and pay tribute to all of the men and women that have selflessly served and sacrificed so much for our freedom. We remember the fallen soldiers for their bravery and also their families for the hardships they had to endure in the aftermath of such tragedy and loss.

Today, I thought I would share a recipe that many boys on the front lines would receive from loved ones...

 When it's hot (or cold), I am always a sucker for ice cream...for the sake of my thighs, I really should lay off it but this no bake ice cream cookie cake is too damn good and it's perfect for weather like this because you don't have to turn on the oven! 

I'm just glad that I have neighbours that are willing to take leftovers off my hands when I frantically drive over yelling "don't let me eat anymore!!"...

 Who remembers these?! Whenever my Mom made a pie, she would use up the scraps of pastry to make these little cinnamon sugar rolls that she would call "tidbits".  My brother and I would race into the kitchen when they were just out of the oven and fight over who would get more...Mom would always holler  "save some for your dad's tea!!", which we were always reluctant to do, but scared not to! Lol!!

I th...

 This is twist on an old, classic dessert that is perfect for summer weather because you don't have to bake it!  With just a few simple ingredients, it's easy to whip up in a hurry but waiting for it to set up in the fridge might be the hardest part of this whole recipe!

 A simple concoction of chocolate wafer cookies layered with chocolate hazelnut spread and sweetened whipped cream will have your family convinced th...

  Angel Food cake is one of my very favourite cakes...along with chocolate,vanilla, carrot, coconut...you get my drift...I love cake, but it seems like you can eat more of this since it's light...right?! It is great served with strawberry sauce,  lemon curd  or a chocolate ganache topping or simply on it's own with a light dusting of powdered sugar.

 To make this light as a cloud dessert, you will need:...

There is something comforting about the smell of cinnamon and sugar wafting from the kitchen when you bake up a batch of sweet rolls...

 ...warm, soft and sticky, these cinnamon rolls are perfect with a cold glass of milk or a hot cup of coffee...either way, you will be glad you made them...and even happier to eat them! 

 In a large bowl or in your KitchenAid mixer, combine 2 cups of all purpose flour, 1 tsp. of salt and a...
