Chocolate-Hazelnut Tart

Chocolate Hazelnut Tart Recipe - Cashmere & Cocktails

Three words: chocolate hazelnut tart. If you’re a fan of all things Nutella like I am, trust me when I say that you need this tart in your life. It’s also the ultimate make-you-feel-better dessert (unless you have a nut allergy, in which case it might instead land you in the hospital). Tired? This tart […]

Lazy Brownies Recipe - Cashmere & Cocktails

Want to know what I like? Desserts. Want to know what I like even more than desserts? EASY desserts. As much as I love baking, it’s awesome to have a killer dessert recipe in your arsenal that requires very little effort. It’s also nice to have a last-minute, crap-we-have-company-coming-gotta-throw-something-together, option. If this sounds as appealing […]

Homemade Hamburger Helper

Homemade Hamburger Helper Recipe - Cashmere & Cocktails

I know I’m not alone when I say that I grew up on Hamburger Helper. As a child of the 80s, I inevitably witnessed the massive wave of instant food gain popularity. It wasn’t the healthiest of times (we ate this boxed, preservative-fill deliciousness minimum once a week), but our parents didn’t really know any […]

Classic Apple Crisp

Classic Apple Crisp Recipe - Cashmere & Cocktails

Warm apple crisp a la mode is one of my favourite desserts of all time. Not only is it delicious, it can be prepared in advance and stored in the refrigerator for days until you’re ready to bake it (which is precisely what I did). Another great perk? Apple crisp can easily be made into […]

Leftover Thanksgiving Turkey Panini

Leftover Turkey Panini Recipe - Cashmere & Cocktails

Last weekend was Thanksgiving here in Canadaland and in honour of the weird holiday (have you ever actually looked up the origin of Thanksgiving? Brutal.), I’ve decided to start this post with my own version of the “What Are You Thankful For?”, Bad Moms Edition. Before you burn me at the stake, I am obviously […]

Overnight Oats ~ Five Ways

Overnight Oats Recipes - Cashmere & Cocktails

Do your mornings look like the scene from Home Alone when they forget Kevin? Mine do. They’re generally a wild scramble of tossing clothes at the kids, making a breakfast to go and hustling them out the door only to return because someone (often myself) has forgotten something. So when I discovered overnight oats, it […]

Pumpkin Loaf with Almond Buttercream Frosting

Pumpkin Spice Loaf with Almond Buttercream Icing - Cashmere & Cocktails

I make this pumpkin loaf recipe annually for Thanksgiving and it’s probably my favourite fall inspired recipe ever. It’s also ultra-moist (ew, am I the only person who hates that word? Moist. *cue gag reflex*) so it doesn’t dry out like many other loafs out there. The original recipe was by Kraft however over the […]

Creamy Italian Sausage and Pasta

Creamy Italian Sausage Pasta Recipe - Cashmere & Cocktails

Truth bomb: mothering sucks sometimes. To be clear, I’m not referring to the kids. I’m talking about everything else that goes along with the job. Take yesterday for example: I spent three long hours standing in the kitchen after finishing a hectic work day. Don’t get me wrong, I obviously love to cook or I […]

Pumpkin Whoopie Pies with Brown Butter Cream Cheese Filling

Pumpkin whoopie pies with brown butter cream cheese filling; do I have your attention yet? This weekend, we were invited to a Cajun cookout and I’d offered to bring dessert. Yes, I know; pumpkin whoopie pies aren’t exactly Cajun-inspired but these bad boys are delicious so does it really matter if they fit the theme? […]

Apple Crisp Bars

Apple Crisp Bars Recipe - Cashmere & Cocktails

For those of you who have been paying close attention, you may have noticed that this week was unofficially apple-themed. While many are currently on the pumpkin train (I have some killer pumpkin recipes coming at you soon, pinkie promise), apples are a great fall staple as well. I even snuck them into the Harvest […]
