Butterfinger Blondies



When I decided I wanted to make these, I scoured every store in the city trying to find Butterfingers. I was sure I had seen them for sale somewhere but I could not figure out where they had been. After searching and searching, I finally gave up and decided to make something else. It wasn't until the Boyfriend's parents went to the states and brought me back a bag full of Butterfinger bars that I was finally able to make these squares!

Little did I know that Butterfingers are no longer sold in Canada, but that Crispy Crunch bars are pretty much the exact same kind of chocolate bar....

So much work for nothing..

Springtime Aspragus & Ham Pasta


 I am so happy that this terrible winter seems to finally be lifting! (Knock on wood!)

This was such a long, dark, and terribly cold, winter season, and finally, FINALLY, it's getting warm out. Two days of 12 degree weather is a spring-streak in my books. Keep it coming Kingston!

Chocolate Chip Orange Pound Cake


In my family, April is the month of birthdays. My mom and brother both have birthdays within less than a week of one another, and multiple extended family members have birthdays in the mix as well. Today is my mom's birthday, and I'm sad I can't be home to celebrate with her. Although it might not be one of the fanciest cakes I've ever made, I still felt that it was fitting to post a cake recipe on her birthday.

Chicken Tetrazinni


I feel like one word to describe my life for the past few weeks is "hectic". I have been on the go non-stop for such a long time and it is only now just finally winding down.

When things are so busy like this, one thing that tends to fall by the wayside is the quality of my meals. I've been relying heavily on the Boyfriend to cook for me the last little bit and I can't tell you how much I've appreciated it. But now that I have more time, I'm looking forward to cooking and baking a whole lot more!
