When you think of St. Patrick’s Day you probably think of one of two things … the colour green or beer; since green beer is a thing at this time of year – perhaps you’re only thinking of one thing 😉 This year, I thought I would forgo the green food coloring and opt for a play on a classic, the Irish Coffee. Soft and chewy, these Irish Coffee Blondies are infused with classic flavours in two ways – ground coffee in the batter and Irish whiskey in the sugar glaze. The perfect sweet treat for the holiday. Enjoy!
Whether you have children of your own or not, it’s hard not to be drawn into the the excitement and magic of a nursery waiting to welcome the newest member of a family. Having some tiny part in the first few years of a child’s life is so incredibly special, an honour I don’t take lightly. When a former assistant shared that she was expecting and needed help with the nursery I was thrilled and so touched to play a smart part in preparing for baby. High school sweethearts, Sabrina and Chase are kind, fun-loving and the most down to earth couple I know. With a serious love of the outdoors, in particular our gorgeous Canadian Rockies, there was no question this space would have an outdoorsy, animal theme. A Rocky Mountain Nursery.
Is there anything better than fresh homemade cinnamon rolls in the morning with a nice (strong) cup of coffee? Nope, I can’t think of anything either! But the work that goes into traditional cinnamon buns can sometimes make having them in the morning a bit of a challenge, which is why when I discovered Julie Blanners Cinnamon Roll Bread, I knew I had a winner on my hands. So much easier than traditional cinnamon buns, but all the same comforting flavours.
Julie swears the magic is in the swirling, I’m convinced it’s in the icing 😉 Enjoy!
