These are not your typical banana-chocolate muffins. Instead of using mashed banana, the banana is ‘chunked’ for a more banana-y flavour in ever bite.  A little different but yummy!  The batter is very cake like and the muffins come out like little chocolate cakes. (more…)

This is almost like a peanut butter shortbread, with icing. Make sure you don’t skip the icing, it just makes these bars complete. Enjoy!

I want brownies. I’ve seen all these pins for brownies, looked at a bunch of different recipes around the web and today, I just couldn’t hold off any more. I WANT BROWNIES! So, I went to the original Canadian Kitchen Goddess, Jean Paré, and found her Brownies recipe. And then I tweaked it.

What to do with a leftover baguette?  You can, of course, freeze it to be used later.  You can cube it and make croutons. You can make a nice French Onion Soup and use some of the stale bread for toasted rounds. Or you can make this delicious dessert that reminds me of fall, farm

What the heck is molé (mō-lay), you ask? It’s aMexican style spicy chocolate sauce.  But wait! I said this was Pork Tenderloin Molé! How can you can pork and chocolate together?!?!? That’s just crazy!  Ah, my friends, you’ll see.
