Friday February 8, 2013 by Claire

This 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".

Cranberry Banana Bread Recipe

Tuesday January 15, 2013 by Claire

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.

Overindulging is a well known holiday tradition, right?
