Classic Vanilla and Chocolate Marbled Bundt Cake

By Emma Christensen I do love a good bundt cake. I feel like they’re somehow less fussy and formal than layer cake, but still, you know… Cake.
That’s why I zeroed right in on this recipe for Vanilla and Chocolate Marbled Bundt Cake in my friend Irvin Lin’s new cookbook, Marbled, Swirled, and Layered.
He makes it with a chocolate-coffee syrup swirled into the batter. Plus chocolate chips. Plus a thick vanilla glaze over top. Game, set, match.

Hotel Chocolat Christmas Chocolate Box Collections

By Caroline Field Anyone that knows me at all knows about my particular love of nuts. Almonds, pecans, cashews, macadamias, I love them all, chestnuts being an especial favourite. So when Hotel Chocolat asked me if I’d review two of their Christmas products, one of which was the box called Just One More, which is a box full of nuts enrobed in chocolate, what do you think I said? I said “just one more” as I popped another one of these beauties in my mouth!

Homemade Cheeseboard Chutney

By Jacqueline Meldrum When Davidstow, the cheddar people, challenged me to create something that would compliment their mature cheddar on a cheeseboard, I knew just what to make. I have a recipe for red onion and apple chutney that’s a family favourite and I’d been thinking of tinkering with it.It’s a really simple recipe, but so, so tasty. It always gets lots of lovely comments. I decided to add red pepper to the chutney this time and tweak the spicing. It worked really well.Chutney is an easy preserve to make, just whack it all in a pan and cook it down. A …read more

Brussels Sprout Pizza with Goat Cheese

By erin I find it hard to believe that I went a solid chunk of my life avoiding Brussels sprouts. These little brassicas heads, when prepared well, are an absolute cold weather treat. For the most part, I roast the Brussels sprouts as it’s near impossible to cook them into mush or a horrible flavor. This Brussels sprout pizza is a favorite of mine on pizza night and one the whole family can agree on making. I like to include all those loose leaves that fall off as you cut the Brussels. They turn into crisp chips on the pizza, adding a …read more

Slice-and-Bake Pistachio Butter Cookies

By Sheryl Julian These slice-and-bake pistachio cookies are buttery, but not too sweet, and have a firm texture like shortbread. The chopped pistachios around the edges also give them a bright spot of color.
The cookies are about the size of quarters, making them the perfect one-bite treat – though they’re also fun to eat by the handful!

Fruit and granola breakfast brûlée

By Becca @ Amuse Your Bouche I kind of feel like I managed to trick myself with this fruit and granola breakfast brûlée. I know the magician isn’t supposed to be fooled by their own illusions, but somehow, despite knowing full well that this recipe is made from 90% healthy breakfast ingredients, it tasted like a sinfully luxurious dessert.
It’s amazing how far a couple of teaspoons of caramelised sugar can go…

Underneath the crispy, crackly sugar topping and the creamy Greek yogurt, there’s a thick layer of fruit and granola. Obviously you can use whatever fruits you fancy – I used strawberries, grapes and blueberries (three of …read more

Tarte Flambée – Alsatian Bacon & Onion Pizza (Not Pizza)

By foodwishes@yahoo.com (Chef John) The hardest thing about this amazing tarte flambée recipe isn’t the prep, or finding some exotic ingredient, it’s actually trying to explain to your guests why it’s not called pizza. I’m reminded of that old saying, “If it walks like a duck, talks like a duck, and looks like a duck, sometimes it’s a trout.” That’s right, while this is a pizza almost everywhere else, in certain places on the German/French border, it goes by the totally dessert-sounding name of tarte flambée. Just tell people the name comes from the fact it used to be cooked in a fire, and …read more

Peppermint Hot Chocolate Smoothie Bowl

By Sus Davy I miss smoothies and smoothie bowls in the colder months. Opting for something more comforting like baked oats or pancakes/waffles if time allows. But the other day I was craving one, and a friend of mine gave me an awesome idea, a hot smoothie bowl. Think hot chocolate, but with more goodness and flavour, think a peppermint hot chocolate smoothie bowl. There is no reason why you can’t make those lovely bowls warmer. This one has been a life saver the last week. We have had hard frosts and cold, clear nights. When I crawl out of bed before sun …read more

(Giant and Mini) Holiday Butternut Squash Lasagna Rolls with Spinach

By erin Post in partnership with Disney’s The BFG, now available on Blu-ray, Digital HD & Disney Movies Anywhere.
Feeding a toddler has made me more creative. I’m always looking for ways to miniaturize recipes so that he can join along with exactly what we’re eating. So, when Disney asked me to create a giant and mini version of a recipe in honor of the movie Disney’s The BFG, I felt like I’d been preparing for months. To give context, in the movie, Sophie befriends the Big Friendly Giant and their friendship is the backbone for the movie.
