I’m a huge fan of quiche. What’s not to love? Crust, check. Egg, check. Cheese, double check. So when I came across a recipe that threw more of my favourite things into the mix, like mushrooms and caramelized onions, I was sold.
I wanted to find a new dessert to celebrate Easter, and carrot cake was a frequenter of many Easter dessert lists I came across, thematic I suppose because bunnies > carrots. I’d always enjoyed carrot cake and thought it high time I try my hand at it.
A collection of labs at UTM hold a weekly Thursday social–just an opportunity to have a few afternoon snacks and chat. In the past, I’ve brought pie and various other types of desserts, but it had been awhile since I’d baked for it. I was feeling remiss, though lazy and didn’t want to shop for…
In an effort to eat at least mildly healthier, I bought a bunch of fresh salmon that happened to be on sale. Being a weeknight, I wanted a fast, easy and tasty recipe, and this looked to fit the bill.

Breakfast for dinner calls for both savoury and sweet, and these scones marry those together in one buttery, delightful mouthful.
A post-American Thanksgiving treat. I realized I’d never actually made a traditional pecan pie and thought it was high time to give it a try.

Recipe from Bon Appetit magazine 1 cup all-purpose flour 1/2 cup powdered sugar plus more for dusting 1/2 cup unsalted butter, cut into 1/2″…

Lunchtime discussions with Lisa, our lab manager, determined hers to be raspberry, which (for some strange reason) I’d never tried. I can’t say I’d ever even heard of raspberry pie, as it seems to play second…
Sometimes a little bit of comfort food is necessary, and a good tuna melt fits the bill. This was the first recipe I tried out of Chrissy Teigen’s Cravings cookbook, given to me before I left Chicago.
