Well hello friends! It’s been a hot minute since my last post.
A bunch has been going on behind the scenes, both business and personal, and while it’s been good for the most part, it’s kept my days full and my capacity to blog at a minimum. And since I never want to write just for the sake of writing, I gave myself grace to take a step back. A funny thing happens when we give ourselves space, we come back refreshed, refocused and ready to write 🙂
I can hardly believe St. Patrick’s day is less than a week away! How will you be celebrating? Corned beef and cabbage? Shamrock shakes and green beer? I thought I would mark the occasion by giving a comfort food classic an Irish twist – St. Paddy’s Day Mac and Cheese. I’ve added in Guinness Stout and Irish Cheddar Cheese to give a childhood favourite a flavourful, grown-up makeover. It’s decadent, creamy and so delicious. I bet you’ll never make regular Mac and Cheese again! Happy St. Paddy’s Day!
When it comes to holiday baking, it’s always hard to choose a favourite. But if there was a flavour profile I absolutely adore at this time of year and find myself gravitating towards time and time again, it would have to be all things spiced. If you’ve been here for the last few years, you would have seen my Molasses Spiced Cake. Still a favourite and one that I will definitely be baking again this year.
But I thought I would kick off the holiday baking season with something a little less quintessentially holiday – a Spiced Pear Cake, with Butterscotch Sauce.
