Bitters Blood Orange Marmalade

Bitters Blood Orange Marmalade

Full disclosure: I wanted real bad to be a goth in high school.  It never really happened, for reasons almost entirely based in my lazy approach to fashion; I am hopelessly lo-fi when it comes to clothes.  I mean, I still wear a lot of black… And 80’s goth music is part of the scaffolding […]

Meyer Lemon Honey Semifreddo

Meyer Lemon Honey Semifreddo

Half of this heavenly monster sits in my freezer right now, waiting like a cool semifreddonkenstein (half frozen, half… not.. frozen).  It’s pale yellow exterior concealing the deep wallop of Meyer lemon and Nova Scotian wildflower honey it holds within, waiting to be pared down, slice by slice, into moments of time that melt at exactly the right […]

Carrot Soufflé Swiss Roll

Carrot Soufflé Swiss Roll

Spring is finally in the air in Montreal.  Albeit, a very rain-soaked kind of spring, but that’s how the world gets clean… and my kitchen window is open and the air is sweetening and getting richer by the day.  It’s the kind of season where a trip to the corner market garners old friends in […]

Chocolate Chiffon Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting (Happy 1rst Birthday!)

Chocolate Chiffon Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting (Happy 1rst Birthday!)

It’s been ages since I’ve bothered too deeply with the more decorative aspects of baking – food colouring and sprinkles, fancy piping tips, cake toppers, (frosting as a whole), that stuff.  NOT because I don’t find it twee and amazing and honestly I’m a bright colours person… I was just frugal.  Enjoyed my natural looking food (grown-ass adult baking heyo).

How to Make Fruit Vinegars (Shrubs!): 2 Methods

How to Make Fruit Vinegars (Shrubs!): 2 Methods

Ooh, shrubs. Nooooooo, not that kind of shrub!!  A shrub like an old school (colonial-era skool) American drink made with sweet drinking vinegar, OR it can refer to that sweet vinegar itself.  It’s made by pouring mild vinny (apple cider, rice, wine, etc) over top of crushed fruits and letting it steep for hours or days, then […]

Uttapam – Fermented Whole Grain Pancakes from South India

Uttapam – Fermented Whole Grain Pancakes from South India

I’m fast becoming a fan of fermentation, friends.  There’s something magical about mixing ingredients together and letting it independently bubble to life.  I’m also a huge fan of eating whole grains, although it’s hard to find ways to easily slip some of them into everyday meals – the Ninja still won’t come around to brown rice, the fool!
