Linzer Cookies with Cranberry Filling - Cashmere & Cocktails

It’s my opinion that there are never too many Christmas cookies. Seriously though, have you ever heard anyone say: “crap, I’ve baked way too many cookies this year”? Not a chance. The thing with Christmas cookies is that they are so versatile. You can serve them to family at a gathering, bring them to work […]

Welp, it’s December. Not quite sure how the jerk snuck up on me, but the month of merry and joy has leapt from the shadows and tackled me to the freakin’ ground. December, you sleigh riding Ho-Ho-ing asshole, you’ve royally screwed me. I’ve accomplished next to nothing thus far in terms of decorations and gifts, […]

Maple Sugar Cookies

Maple Sugar Cookies Recipe - Cashmere & Cocktails

Here’s the deal; I’ve been having a real hard time getting into the holiday spirit. While freshly fallen snow is usually enough to kick me into gear, this year I seem to have mentally stalled somewhere in mid-October. I was on the ball until a few weeks before Halloween (I know this because I actually […]

Creamy Tomato Soup

Creamy Roasted Tomato Soup by Cashmere & Cocktails

Have you ever tried to simultaneously dress three children for -30° weather? No? Then let me paint you a picture of what it’s like, amigos: Fight with them to put on their winter gear because being bundled to the point that one can barely move sucks.

Dark Chocolate Pecan Cookies - Cashmere & Cocktails

Winter is upon us, amigos. I woke up yesterday to the white crap falling from the sky and felt my soul cry a little. In my part of the world, we have two and a half seasons; four months of summer, one too-short month of fall, followed by seven months of winter. I don’t even […]

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 […]

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 […]
