Carrot cupcakes with quark icing

Let’s try this again. The last time I started prepping this recipe to post, my poor ‘ol MacBook got drowned in an apartment flood. Maybe I’ll try to keep my fingers crossed so that nothing happens to my computer while I finish it up this time. Sure, it might take a little longer to write,…Read More

Nova Scotia Berry Lavender Pavlova

Oh hey, I remember you. Over the last few months I’ve attempted to put together a post several times, but alas they were not meant to be.
