Pumpkin Cheesecake Truffles

Pumpkin Truffles by Cashmere & Cocktails

Pumpkin season is here people and I’m not mad about it! For me, pumpkin season 2020 means cozy sweaters, warm drinks and the kids making their much anticipated return to school after an excruciatingly long hiatus (Hallelujah baby Jesus). Listen, I think that we can all agree that we adore our children. We cradled them […]

Dark Chocolate Cupcakes

Dark Chocolate Cupcake Recipe - Cashmere & Cocktails

Fun fact: I use to bake cupcakes as a side hustle. It feels like forever and a day, but there was a time when I baked upwards to 2000 cupcakes a week for a local market. Customers would show up before I arrived, a line would form from my booth all the way out the […]

Caprese Flatbread

Caprese Flatebread - Cashmere & Cocktails

Now and then I open the refrigerator, see that we’re out of leftovers and think to myself shit. Leftovers are my go-to when I’m home alone for a meal. It’s not that I don’t enjoy cooking, I just hate going through all the trouble for one. In times like these, I often lazily throw together […]

Flourless Chocolate Cake

Flourless Gluten Free Chocolate Cake Recipe - Cashmere & Cocktails

Confession; when the gluten-free diet first hit, I thought it was a heaping pile of manure. I knew zero about it other than the fact that gluten-free bread was five times pricier than regular bread and that everyone and their grand-mother was suddenly requesting gluten-free dining options. I thought it was fake. I thought it […]

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 […]

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 […]

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? […]
