Party details are up #ontheblog! Plus the recipe for this #unprocessed Apple Spice Layer Cake with Strawberry Cream Cheese Ombre Frosting... #claraisone #PicTapGo #babybirthday #layercake #recipe #ombre
  • Lovely!

  • So pretty!

  • So beautiful.

  • Amazing.

  • Brilliant! Happy birthday!

  • LOVE it!

  • Been thinking about what cake to make for my daughter's first birthday in 3 months (yes, already thinking about it😜)--and as soon as I saw this I knew what I was making even before I realized you made it for your daughter's first birthday as well. Love that it's healthier, and oh so pretty, and sounds yummy too.

  • @all_these_things How precious! Love that you are a planner. I used 2x 6' pans for Clara's cake and there was leftover enough for a 7-inch for sampling. 🍰Have fun!

  • Ha I'm often a procrastinator so trying to plan better :)

Brunch at @thecoastalcafe after a full morning with live TV segments on both @ctvmorningliveatlantic and Global Halifax. Catch all the behind the scenes action on Stories, including runny yolk from The Durty Burd special. 😱 Such an epic breakfast!!

The immensely talented @stemsandforks transformed my Blushing Beet and Apple Smoothie from #SimpleBitesKitchen into a cake! I always love seeing how folks interpret my recipes in their own kitchens, but I think Betty's creation takes the cake. πŸ˜‰ πŸ™πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘ŒπŸ»

Grey November days make me think of chai. A foamy, milky tea with a kick to it from spices such as cardamom, mace, ginger and cloves. I'm working on my own recipe, but not super happy with the results yet. This version was a tad bitter - not good! I did add a spoonful of pumpkin purΓ©e, however, and that is delicious. I like mine honey sweetened, and I occasionally use almond milk. So many variations! Do you have a go-to chai? Maybe it's a favorite recipe or a cafΓ© that makes it just so? β˜•οΈ .

Brussels sprouts with honey and hazelnuts is my favorite fall side dish. It's simple to prepare but not boring in the least, thanks to a finishing touch of grapefruit zest and sea salt. Find the recipe in Brown Eggs and Jam Jars. 🍴
Are you Team Brussels or not?

Trying my best not to let this Monday get the better of me. Winning at an early lunch but feeling like I could use a life coach for everything else. ☺️

It's the end of fall on the homestead. The wild turkeys show up now and then in flocks. The leaves have all fallen and carpet the forest floor. The air is still and cold; snow is not far off. I'm simmering a chicken noodle soup for dinner as three of us are down with cold. It's going to be a slow weekend - a much needed break after an intense week of travel + book promo. (PS: our idyllic home is still for sale. Message me if you want the listing.)

A friend gifted us a generous basket of pears from his tree and I am ripening them to perfection so I can make my Spiced Pear Jam with Bourbon. 🍐 It is SO good heaped on scones or just eaten straight from the jar with a spoon. You've probably guessed it already -- the recipe can be found in my new cookbook. ☺️#simplebiteskitchen .

Maple-sweetened, lightly-spiced Winter Squash Pie, from #SimpleBitesKitchen, as made by my kids. πŸŽƒ This is one of their most-requested desserts, so today they learned how to bake it themselves. πŸ‘ŠπŸ»πŸ‘ŠπŸ» Loads of pumpkin recipes in a round up on the blog right now, and this recipe can be found in my new book!
