Healthy Cocoa Oatmeal Cookies

Healthy Cocoa Oatmeal Cookies | My Edible Journey

I hesitate to put the label “healthy” on something like cookies

I mean, they still have sugar and fat and wheat flour in them.  But compared to conventional cookies, these are a good bit healthier.  They’re also still clearly a treat, and not a meal replacement or anything. Continue reading

Butter Nut Shortbread | My Edible Journey

Let it Begin

The Christmas season has begun in earnest for us.  Up until this past Sunday (the first Sunday of Advent), I’ve felt a bit like I’ve been snitching cookies from the platter, sneaking in bits of Christmas where I can.  I always start getting into the spirit “early.”  By mid November, I’m normally chomping at the bit, listening to music, putting out the odd decoration…  Continue reading

Brown Butter Biscotti and a Festive Drink

Brown Butter Chocolate Chip Biscotti with Candy Cane Coffee |My Edible Journey

It’s gotten cold.  Winter began creeping in a week or so ago.  And with it, that dull light that is the bane of food bloggers.  Hence the photo quality.  Would it be weird to ask for pieces of white and black foam board for Christmas?

Then it snowed.  It was so unexpected that the kids didn’t even have boots.  We haven’t gotten snow like this in November in….  Well, I don’t remember.  Not in the past few years, anyway.  I’d already given up pining for it when it arrived.  And it brought with it a very festive spark.

Like a TV Clip Show

Sorry, folks. I’m down for the count this week with an ear infection/perforated eardrum.  So, in the spirit of television clip shows, I’ve compiled a few posts from the past year to hold us all over until I’m (hopefully) better next week.  And yes, lesson learned.  Keep a post or two in reserve for times such as this… Continue reading

Cinnamon Snaps

Cinnamon Snaps|My Edible JourneyEvery time I get knee-deep in autumn inspiration, it turns warm again.  Not hot, thankfully, but the kids are in shorts and a couple of our ceiling fans are on.  But it’s too late for me.  I’m hopelessly giddy that October is here.  Thanksgiving is right around the corner (Canadian blogger, remember), the leaves have begun to turn, and my favourite month has arrived, kicking off my favourite quarter of the year!

Double Chocolate Cherry Chip Cookies

Double Chocolate Cherry Chip Cookies |My Edible JourneyA jubilee of cherries

Have I mentioned how much I love cherry season?  Oh yeah, I did, here.  It’s still going strong, and I’ve been indulging as much as I can.  I bought a basket on the weekend from a farm nearer the lake, north of here.  It still amazes me how the micro-climates around the peninsula can produce such variety in the same fruits (not to mention some incredible wines).  These cherries are super dark, and very juicy, but smaller than the ones that we bought west of here.  They are still delicious, though.

Best Mocha Chip Cookies

Mocha Chip Cookies ~ My Edible Journey
Today is a bit dreary. Actually, it’s a lot dreary. But it’s the kind of dreary that we need.  The rain is gentle and steady, and is going to be followed by warm sunshine.  Together, they will make magic.  The green of the grass will brighten.  The roots of our recent vegetable transplants will stretch into their new soil home.  The cool-loving lettuce and peas will explode with growth.  It is a good dreary.  A dreary that inspires me to bake.
