No surprise here – I’m usually in charge of dessert at our Holiday meal! And this year, I’m keeping things simple with a repeat of last year’s cake, a Molasses Spice Cake. It was such a hit and features my favorite holiday flavours, I figure why mess with a good thing. Topped with a delicious maple glaze and packed with flavour, you’ll definitely want a second piece, so leave room! Word of caution though, only try this cake if you’re a fan of molasses and spiced holiday treats.
I can hardly believe I’m talking about Halloween! Where has this year gone!?
Ready or not, in a few short days the kiddos (and some adults) will be donning costumes and heading out trick or treating. I don’t plan to do much in the way of Halloween this year. With a busy September and early October, the thought of a quiet couple of weeks before the busyness of the Holiday Season is just what I need. But I couldn’t let Halloween pass without celebrating it in some way. So I’m doing so in my favorite way, with some Halloween Baking.
We’re days away from Thanksgiving here in Canada, which only means one thing for me – pie! Year after year, I am in charge of the pie for Thanksgiving dinner, which if you’ve followed along for any amount of time, probably won’t come as a surprise. A quick search of the word ‘pie’ on the blog brings up many options – this pumpkin pie with a twist and the prettiest peach pie, are probably two of my favorites. And while I love all things pumpkin at this time of year, inspired by my peach pie, I decided to go with a Maple Bourbon Apple Rose Pie for this years Thanksgiving dinner. Try saying that three times fast!
