Christmas Macarons

Wild Serendipity, a local baker in Saskatoon, was kind enough to share her Macarons recipe with the world on her blog. Click here for the original post.

Tiramisu with a bbqed peach

A while ago I received a copy of Grace’s Sweet Life, which was written by Grace┬áMassa-Langlois an Italian-Canadian baker.
