Spring Themed Cake

First cake we decorated in my cake decorating class at school. Spring themed, I chose a simple saying and forget-me-not flowers.

Candied Orange Peel

This made not only the orange rind, but some orange sugar, and orange syrup.

Roasted Chickpeas

I've made this recipe twice now, and oh my gosh they are so good, and were gone in 2-3 days. They seem to shrink, so it doesn't make as much as I would like. I may start making larger batches, but who knows.

Cupcakes by Heather & Lori <~~ This is their website. They have a few stores located across Canada, and I am lucky enough to have one where I live. I bought a six pack of day olds, and a fresh Red Velvet.

Miracle Noodles

I am loving these photos, I really enjoy the contrasting colours. These are miracle noodles with pumpkin, chickpeas, fennel, poppy and sesame seeds.

Chocolate Lava Cakes (2 Versions)

Both two different versions, derived from this recipe here.

I'd say out of the two the top was the best. They're actually quite low in calories, considering. Pretty filling two, although I made so many of these trying to get the best recipe that I'm sick of them, and can hardly look at these photos.

Chocolate Chip Cookies

And she's back! Wow, it's been more then a month since my last post, and for that I apologize. My laptop broke and we had to order a new part which took a few weeks, so I was without photoshop, which meant no editing pictures, which then meant no blog posts. But here we are, with some cookies. 

While I cannot remember the changes that I made to this recipe, the original is here. I do remember them being pretty good, but too cinnamon-y. 

I will be posting every day for a few days until I've finished posting all the recipes I'd made while on blogger hiatus.

3-Seed Crackers + Rosemary Sea Salt Crackers (V)

Three Seed Crackers are poppy seed, sesame seed, and fennel seed. These crackers are from the magazine  The Best of Cooking: Breads.

For the seed crackers I used 1 cup whole wheat and 1 cup white, which needed about and extra 2-4 tbsp water.

Lemon-Cardamom Oat Bars (Vegan)

I have been baking so much lately, and my mood has improved greatly because of it. I find it so peaceful in the kitchen, with the heat of the oven, the lovely smell of whatever I am making drifting out, mmmm. And of course we can't forget my Supernatural playlist....  Best. Show. Ever.

Vegan Snickerdoodles

I made these the same day as the peanut butter cookies, hence the same looking photos.

Vegan Peanut Butter Cookies

Can you tell I'm excited? No, it's not that exciting actually. It's freezing cold, and quite boring to be honest. Buuuut I did bake some more things! We're running out of ingredients, and no one seems to be buying them, so I've been left with remnants.

Sweet Oat Bread

Finally, it's here! The long awaited post about bread. I made this for my grandma for Christmas, but couldn't take pictures because who would want bread that's been cut into already. So I finally got around to making the vegan version for myself, and I can't wait to try it! It got great reviews from my grandma and aunts, they ate it very quickly!

Vegan Pumpkin Oatmeal Cookies

First time baking in the new year, and I'm making cookies (and bread, but that recipe will come in a few days)! Going 100% Vegan this year, or trying at least. Last year I went back and forth between vegetarian and vegan. I'm curious how these cookies will turn out, because I used a lot less sugar then it called for.

Au Revoir 2011

Hello 2012! I hope everyone had a wonderful new years, honestly I didn't do anything, I don't think it's that big of a deal. It didn't feel like Christmas, and it certainly doesn't feel like a new year. I guess it's because the weather has been really mild this entire year. Even though it hardly snows here, the past few years it has snowed around the holidays, for when it was on average 8 degrees C all winter break, with no snow, it didn't really feel like Christmas was really happening.

This might be why when I finally got around to decorating a gingerbread house, it was a week after the holidays had ended. And of course, I'm posting it two weeks after. Forgive me? This was the first gingerbread house where I didn't just decorate it like the usual. I spent about and hour and a half decorating my half of the house, while my dad decorated the other half. I quite enjoy my side, I think we did an awesome job on it.
