Rhubarb Danish

Read Article →

I'm loving all the rhubarb desserts that I've been seeing on blogs and around Pinterest lately. Rhubarb pies, rhubarb muffins, rhubarb cakes, rhubarb crumbles, rhubarb drinks, rhubarb everything!! Except… not many rhubarb danish (danishes?). Everyone knows that rhubarb goes great with flaky pastry, but it's usually a pie pastry. With a little help from King Arthur Flour, I stepped it up a notch and paired rhubarb with uber flaky croissant dough to make one kickass flaky-fruity-sour-sweet-crunchy-creamy pastry.

Passion Fruit Mint Sorbet + Sorbet Float

Read Article →

It seems like spring took its sweet time getting here but summer is already chomping at the bit. Or maybe everyone is just so excited about the nice weather that we're getting a little ahead of ourselves. We're already looking forward to the next season, don't you think?

I'm still settled in with the spring flavours (rhubarb and strawberries - hello!) around here and I think I may have created one of the most refreshing darn things ever. Super bright and tangy passion fruit, herbaceous and refreshing mint, together in one smooth icy treat!

Strawberry Lime Cupcakes

Is it strawberry season yet where you are? Here in Vancouver, we're still getting California strawberries, even though it's basically mid-May! I'm hoping to see local ones in the market sometime soon, but in the meantime, I can still get super awesome and fresh strawberry flavour without waiting!

Raspberry Rhubarb Pie with Lemon Buttermilk Ice Cream

Read Article →

The first pie of the year! And the first ice cream of the year! I couldn't help but include both in the same post because after all, what's pie without ice cream? And this pie and this ice cream were made for each other. Both are sweet with a punchy tangy note to remind you that HEY - the sun is out, the birds are singing, and it's light out until like 8pm, holy crap.

Coconut, Pineapple, and Passion Fruit Layer Cake

Read Article →

I don't make cakes very often, especially not layer cakes. I never really liked layer cakes as a kid because they were always dry, flavourless, and kind of boring. The cakes at my friends birthday parties always looked so delicious and I would always have some, but the minute the cake entered my mouth, it would suck up all the moisture, I'd be struggling to swallow it, and all I wanted was a glass of milk to wash it down. So I learned early on that cake = dry, no ifs, ands, or buts. 

I have since corrected that in my own cakes, but I still prefer mousses and custards to a cake. Unless it's a mousse cake, then HELLO - that's all me.

This cake, however, is not like most cakes. This cake is moist and almost custardy in texture, then I went and put passion fruit curd in between the layers for even more custardy-ness. This cake will never dry out your mouth or have you reaching for a glass of milk. This cake is all you need.
