I’m a ‘carbivore’ (yes I made that word up), I love carbs and will eat them any way possible. So when I found this recipe that claimed to be as good as the restaurant version, I had to try it – and I’m glad I did! Bread can be tricky to make, but this recipe creates a fluffy and versatile breadstick that is definitely worth your time. Hope you enjoy! Continue reading
Bananas are great, but I can never seem to finish a bunch. I always end up having a few that are too brown to eat, but yet they’re perfect for baking – what a shame! I call these BOD muffins because their standout ingredients are: bananas, oats, and dates. The recipe produces light and fluffy muffins with a great texture from the oats, and the sour cream makes it not too sweet but works perfectly with the dates and bananas. Hope you enjoy!

This tart is all about pairs – lemon and blueberry are perfect partners, and the crunchy top from the brûléed sugar balances out the buttery crust. It takes time, but it’s a perfect dessert to bring out and wow your dinner guests. Hope you enjoy!
By the way, new year, new look! What do you think?
I love chocolate and I love coconut, put them together and I am very happy. This recipe is not only simple and delicious, it is dairy and gluten free, so it’s a crowd pleaser for everyone. Hope you enjoy!
I’ve got quite a sweet tooth and love food, which means that I’m often snacking on chocolate, cookies and other sweet things that aren’t exactly great for me. When I made my Nana’s Date Square recipe, I discovered that I really like Medjool dates, which is awesome because they’re a great and natural way to sweeten recipes – they’re even a great source of antioxidants! I set out to make a healthier snack and created these awesome, no-bake, Medjool date bars. The Medjool dates and apples hold the bars together, and the coconut, puffed quinoa and Marcona almonds really add great flavour. They’re perfect for any time, anywhere – hope you enjoy!

Coconut Caramel Brownies…need I say more?! These were ooey, gooey, chocolately, chewy, goodness. My only warning, other than hide these from friends or family because they will disappear, is to read this ‘How to Caramelize Sugar‘ before starting if you’re not super comfortable with wet caramelizaiton (because even I wasn’t and messed up and had to start from scratch a second time). Enjoy!
This blog is in honour of my Nana and back in July I was really happy to share my first recipe of her’s, Nana’s Date Squares. When I eat at restaurants, bakeries, friends, or even other members of my family’s, I always love to see people serving their family recipes. I feel that it’s a great way of keeping our loved ones with us, and brings out a sense of pride about oneself and the dish. This recipe comes from my family friend Sharon’s mother and it’s delicious, hope you enjoy! Continue reading
This is a special recipe, it is the first recipe of my Nana’s that I am posting on My Nana’s Kitchen. Since I had been baking with her for so long, at one point she wrote down a bunch of her recipes for me, some from even her grandmother. As you can see in the image below, it’s hand written on a cue card in her unique handwriting, and is a recipe that I will always cherish. Continue reading
There is a big age difference between my sister and I, but every summer for the past six years I dutifully pile into the car with my parents and share the backseat with my 60 lbs dog to visit her at overnight camp on Visitor’s Day. She is the type of kid that lives for camp and everything related to it, so when I got my hands on her camp’s head chef’s secret recipe for his famous cookies she freaked out to say the least and they are now a staple in our house. Hope you enjoy! Continue reading
I’ve been working on My Nana’s Kitchen for just over a year and a half now, and there are a lot of lessons I’ve learned from it. These lessons come up in conversation enough that I realized that you might want to know about them too, so here they are: Continue reading
