Glazed Thumbprint Cookies

Thumbprint Cookie Recipe by Cashmere & Cocktails

Thumbprint cookies are so underrated. They’re easy to make, super tasty and highly addictive. They’re also a nice cookie to bake with your kids considering how fun the smooshing part of the process is. I used this Strawberry Champagne Jam for the center but any jam you have on hand will do. No joke, I […]

Coconut Cream Pie

Coconut Cream Pit recipe - Cashmere & Cocktails

Our aunt Susie makes the absolute BEST coconut cream pie. The first time I tasted it, I was tempted to hide in the pantry and eat the entire thing. Obviously I didn’t (mostly because there was a house full of witnesses), but I really, really wanted to. Anyway, while the recipe I’m sharing today isn’t […]

Vanilla Glazed Peach Scones

Oh scones, how I love thee and how my boyfriend unequivocally does not. This taste discordance may seem like a running theme in our house but I assure you that 90% of what either of us cooks, the other happily eats. Because I still had a basket full of peaches left over from recently baking […]

White Chocolate Raspberry Cheesecake

Want to know what I bake when I’m not in the mood to share with the roommates (aka my children)? Cheesecake, that’s what. For reasons I can’t comprehend, the tart and tangy flavours turn their fussy childhood taste buds off. It’s totally ok though. Unlike the endless battle we have over eating their vegetables, I’ve […]

Double Chocolate Cookies

Guys, I have a confession to make; I watch a lot of Sesame Street. Like, a lot. Segments like The Letter of the Day and Elmo the Musical keep my baby’s attention like nothing else. Now, before you rip me a new one for childhood screen time and its negative impact on my baby’s development, […]

Strawberry Cake & First Birthday

It was my baby’s first birthday recently *suppresses a sob* and it’s hard to believe that a whole year has gone by since I pushed that watermelon-sized butterball through my vajayjay. She is my third child and it’s been a tad wild to say the least. The other two kids are a fair amount older […]

Grand Marnier Truffles

Any opportunity I have to combine food with alcohol gets me excited. And I don’t mean this in the drink-a-glass-of-wine-as-I-cook kind of way because that’s a given. What I’m talking about is when alcohol is a pivotal ingredient within a recipe. My partner and I had an adult family function last Friday and I decided […]
