sunshine bread

I really really enjoyed this bread.  It has warm honey and orange notes, sweet red raspberries and crunchy sliced almonds.  It is delicious sliced and toasted with a little bit of butter – but also really nice alone.  Sylvie and I actually couldn’t stop picking at this bread.  Very addictive to us – but not…

fudgy puffy chocolate cookies (changed the name so you don’t confuse these with my traditional meringues)

Chocolate-y, gooey on the inside and crispy on the outside, these meringue cookies are scrumptious.  Extra good.  Unlike many meringues, these are a bit soft in the center, very flavorful, and are not as cloyingly sweet as meringues can often be.  We all loved these.  Me, Rob, Greg, Andy, and Sylvie – I think I…

apple cake bars

This simple cake is tasty, moist, apple-y and plain old good.  While it bakes, a sugary layer forms on the top that is crispy, delicious and just begging to be picked at.  Sylvie and I couldn’t keep our hands off of it!  We actually made this for Danika’s birthday.  I was short on time (which is…
