Pumpkin Panna Cotta with Toasted PecansPanna cotta is an Italian dessert that translates to “cooked cream”. Infinitely variable and can be made a day ahead. In this Thanksgiving version we’ve used canned pumpkin and pumpkin pie spice. Using gelatin leaves provides a beautifully silky texture.
Apple CakeThis recipe originated from the Budget Cutters Cookbook that appeared in The London Free Press in November 1982. It was a recipe from Mrs. Gordon H. Willert of Thedford. I always fall back on this recipe when I’m in a hurry. I particularly like it because it only uses one bowl to mix the batter and it produces a flavourful, dense, moist cake. This is a good recipe when apples are in season.
Blueberry Coffee CakeThe following blueberry coffee cake is a great recipe to use local blueberries. It’s not that blueberries are just so delicious and fresh and can be enjoyed with your breakfast or turned into a multitude of desserts — they also freeze well and their shelf life is much longer than many other berries.
Peach Thyme LoafWith an abundance of local peaches in store in August, this is the perfect time to try this loaf! A bit of thyme added to the recipe provides a unique and savoury flavour.
Decadent Dark Chocolate TartMary MacLeod's Butterscotch Shortbread Crumbs makes the tart crust very buttery and Callebaut Dark Chocolate makes the filling smooth and rich.
Chocolate Date Energy BallsSuper easy and no-bake. Bite sized and full of wholesome ingredients, these energy balls are the perfect treat!
Rhubarb Coffee CakeSpring treats. Enjoy ribbons of juicy pink rhubarb topped with a sweet streusel. This cake is perfect for spring brunch, snack time or dessert.
Chocolate Mocha Pots de CrèmeThis French classic has been around since the 17th century. By adding espresso, you take the already decadent dessert to a whole new level. The perfect ending to any meal.
Panna CottaA simple dessert with a 'wow' factor. Panna cotta is a traditional Italian dessert that translates directly to "cooked cream".
Maple Walnut PieTap into your sweet tooth with a maple dessert. Spring in Canada means lots of maple syrup is flowing and this is just one way to use it in an indulgent dessert.
No-Bake Triple Ginger CheesecakeA holiday treat starring ginger. To take some stress away this holiday season, this no-bake cake can be made ahead, frozen and served semifreddo.
Maple Shortbread CookiesNothing says Canada quite like maple! Local maple syrup sweetens these easy buttery cookies and is used in the decorative glaze.
Almond BiscottiBiscotti are a popular cookie from Italy. It’s a twice-baked, crunchy cookie shaped like a half moon. The Italians dip biscotti in coffee or in sweet Italian dessert wine, such as Vin Santo.
