My mother was a master cook sent down from heaven, and as she looks down upon me, I think back to the 1930 and 40s. I must come clean and admit it: I was the person always stealing those great sweet treats... more

It struck me a couple days ago that I have gotten out of the habit of baking, and was missing having nibbly bites about for those mid-meal moments that require just a little something. I briefly mentally bemoaned my lack of muffins, before... more

I extracted a small tub of raspberries from the freezer yesterday, comforted to see it near overflowing with the season's harvest. Though saskatoons and blueberries came in in droves this year, the raspberries that made it to the freezer were few... more

Don’t be foolhardy and dismiss these brownies as a recipe for health and well-being. While the extra fibre and vitamins the beets give this treat are certainly welcome, these rich, flavourful brownies should not be relegated to the realm of diet... more
