Peanut Butter Bars

Roopa It was my boyfriend’s brother’s birthday last week, and I ditched out on going to visit a friend this weekend, so I decided to make some mailable treats! I can’t say I’ve ever done this before, so I’m not entirely sure what works best. Cupcakes were obviously out of the question, and I was … More Peanut Butter Bars

Baileys Truffles

Roopa I got to go to Ireland over spring break to visit my sister! I missed St. Patrick’s day by 2 days, but things were ramping up for the weekend. The people she was staying with were absolutely lovely and let me use their kitchen to some baking! I was lacking a lot of my … More Baileys Truffles

Chocolate Dip Cookies

CHOCOLATE DIPPED COOKIES Roopa I used this cookie recipe (minus the pudding and the chips) and added 2 tablespoons of cocoa to it. After the cookies cooled, I dipped them in melted white chocolate and covered them in sprinkles. Nothing too fancy, but they were pretty delicious. 

Reverse Cookies

Roopa I saw a picture of half and half yin-yangesque cookies, and I wanted to try and make them. It’s a little more challenging to get the actual yin-yang shape, but I was pretty content with how they turned out. It’s basically cookies and various types of chocolate, so there was really no way these … More Reverse Cookies

Reese’s Cookies

REESE’S COOKIES Roopa I used my go-to cookie recipe (and left out the chocolate chips and pudding), and simply stuck a Reese’s cup in each cookie immediately after pulling them out of the oven. I had wanted the cookies to be a little taller, but I had too much liquid in the dough and they flattened … More Reese’s Cookies

Cardamom Shortbread Cookies

CARDAMOM SHORTBREAD COOKIES Roopa I used one quarter of this recipe, and added 12 ground cardamom pods (about 1.5 tsp). They smell like cardamom, but the flavour didn’t go through too intensely. Next time, I would leave the cardamom in bigger chunks (and maybe add a few more pods) instead of grinding it so much. 

Prosthetics Cake

NUTELLA CHOCOLATE CAKE Roopa I am going to be moving to Vancouver pretty soon to start my after-degree in Prosthetics and Orthotics. My friend Nick was pretty invaluable during the application process, so to thank him I made him a chocolate cake with Nutella icing. I tried to make it sort of prosthetics themed, which is … More Prosthetics Cake

Red Velvet Cupcakes

Roopa I found a new recipe for red velvet cupcakes, so I thought I’d give it a try. I haven’t actually seen many eggless recipes, and none of the ones I’ve tried have been as good as the normal version. The ones I tried were adapted  from ‘Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World’ with some … More Red Velvet Cupcakes
