Valentine's Day Dessert Idea: Easy Tiramisu RecipeThis is a story about good intentions. And chocolate. And alcohol.
So as you can imagine, three of my favourite things.
After a few trips to several local grocers (it turns out ladyfingers and mascarpone cheese are rather hard to find) and the liquor store, I came home laden with ingredients and a firm plan to make the recipe "tomorrow".
In other words, I had every intention of making it later...

Cranberry Banana Bread Recipe
After the holidays I discovered some forgotten cranberries at the bottom of my fridge. Looking over to the counter at some browning bananas, I immediately thought of my favourite loaf cake.

Post Holiday Health Rescue: 5 Detox Drinks
Overindulging is a well known holiday tradition, right? Only, after the holidays are done, Present Alexandra is not such a fan of Past Alexandra's decision to observe that tradition. I don't know about you but I don't think I can look at another plate of turkey. Or mashed potatoes. Or stuffing. And please, don't even offer me any sort of chocolate or cake.

Dessert DIY: Molten Lava Cake Recipe
A moist cake outer shell with warm and gooey chocolate that oozes out? Yes, please and make I'll take three! Here is why I love lava cakes: they combine two delicious desserts in one and while each on it's own is pretty darn good, together it's like a decadent explosion of flavour in your mouth. I rarely actually get the chance to make them though. So when Lisa, of Rice Pudding
