The summer has flown by and I sadly have not made it one campfire or fire-pit all season! While truthfully my desire to sit fireside has been damped by all the smoke in the air from the devastating BC fires, I’ve sure missed enjoying a s’more or two! So, I’ve decided to take matters into my own hands this week with a S’mores Pie – no fire necessary. Well, no open fires that is, you’ll need a kitchen torch to flame the meringue 😉
With one of the longest winters behind us – finally – I’m craving some light and fruity flavours. And with the weekend a mere hours away, my mind’s on cocktails. If you read my post on creating an elegant and easy Parisian Brunch, you know that I owe you a cocktail for brunch. And have I got the perfect one! My Gin and Jam Fizz, is easy, fruity and perfect for brunch.
The first few months of 2018 have been a blur. And while it’s been thrilling to have new opportunities and business come in, it’s meant less time in the kitchen. Which for many may be a welcome change, but for someone who loves to bake as much as I do, it’s created a bit of void.
So when E.D. SMITH reached out for a collaboration I was completely ecstatic – I was being happily forced back into the kitchen! E.D. SMITH is the largest Canadian manufacturer of jams, jellies and marmalade – for over 135 years! With a painfully delayed Spring around here this year, working with the E.D. SMITH line of products was the perfect way to bring the flavours of Spring into my baking.
