Blueberry Zucchini Bread

My garden is producing quite a bit of zucchinis these days. I was looking in my late aunt’s recipe box and sure enough I found a zucchini bread recipe. I haven’t made zucchini bread in  years and I haven’t made one since having my son with egg allergies. I used my aunt’s recipe for a…

Marble Cake with Marshmallow Topping

My youngest son has been away to Guatemala on a school missions trip for 12 days! He has been managing fine with his food allergies while away (I may have packed half a suitcase of non-perishable food for him to take). He is the one with egg and peanut allergies. I am pretty sure he…

Lemon Cheesecake Squares

I was looking for a lemon bar recipe that doesn’t take too many eggs for a large pan so it would be easy to replicate. I found a recipe online that has cream cheese in it that only takes 4 eggs for a large pan. Cream cheese is your friend if you are egg allergic…

Caramel Latte Cake

This cake is my version of a caramel latte that you can find at your local coffee shop. I have used my chocolate chip layer cake recipe as the base for this cake, omitted the chocolate chips and added espresso powder. The frosting recipe is one I have used for other cupcakes and cakes with…

Lemon Blueberry Cream Cheese Loaf

Nova Scotia is renowned for its blueberries and I love all things blueberry as does my family. That includes muffins, cakes, crisps, and fresh blueberries with cream! They are all delicious! I wrote this recipe to take on a camping trip. This recipe makes 2 loaves and will transport and keep nicely for a couple…

Banana Cupcakes with Caramel Frosting

A last minute request from school for cupcakes when you have an egg allergic child means you can’t run out to the bakery and buy a dozen. Luckily I had some bananas on the counter which inspired me to write a new cupcake recipe!! Banana Cupcakes with Caramel Frosting! These would also be yummy with…
