Short Cut Puff Pastry

You don’t have to buy expensive packages of puff pastry when making homemade puff pastry is so quick and easy! In this video tutorial, I’ll show you how to make Short Cut Puff Pastry, our favourite way to make Sausage Rolls! But you can use it however your recipe calls for puff pastry.  Look at you saving yourself so much money!

Sourdough Honey Oat Bread

Homemade artisan sourdough bread made with whole grains doesn’t have to be complicated! That’s why Sourdough Honey Oat Bread has become one our most favourite bread recipes! I make this in a Bosch mixer so it’s even easier, but if you don’t have something with a larger capacity, you can easily do by hand, or half it to use a Kitchenmaid Mixer.

Applesauce Spice Cake

My recipe book tells me this recipe for Applesauce Spice Cake originally came from my Auntie Susie, but I’m fairly certain everyone in our family makes it. It has to be one of my favourite cakes of all time. Something about the moist applesauce, flavourful from the spices, add a nice vanilla buttercream…ooooh baby. Yes, it’s good with just a little glaze, but a thick buttercream is definitely my favourite.

Sourdough Biscuits

These Sourdough Biscuits are an easy sourdough recipe which makes them quick to mix up for a meal! Adapted from the book Sourdough, by Sara Owens, they’re a winner! I find them a little bit more cakey crumb that normal biscuits but the exterior is a little more crispy…a heavenly combo.

Cocoa Almonds

Cocoa Almonds are a simple and tasty real food snack made with natural sweetener. Your family will gobble them up!  As with most recipes that become staples in our house, I found the recipe for Cocoa Almonds in a cookbook… But then I decided there were unnecessary steps and ingredients in the recipe. I knew I could streamline it to make simpler. Because the only way real food happens daily in our house is if it’s simple!  This recipe is equally if not more so amazing if you want to splurge and substitute hazelnuts for the almonds!
