Chocolate Stout Caramel Sauce

The Holidays are over and we’re back plodding through seemingly never ending weeks of work.  Maybe you’re lucky enough to be going on a tropical vacation soon, but the rest of us Canadians have no warmth in sight.  It’s time for comfort in a major way.

Gingerbread Old Fashioned

Once again I am making excuses for not posting in so long.  But I swear this time I have a really good one!  Three days ago I successfully completed by PhD defense!  If that’s not an excuse for being M.I.A. then I don’t know what is.

Quinoa Cherry Bars

This recipe was originally meant as a post-Halloween recipe.  After all that candy, you want something that’s healthy but still tastes good.  Let’s call it a transition snack.  But wait, Halloween was almost a month ago??

Salted Buttermilk Milkshakes

Times they are a-changing! Two weeks ago I was finishing my thesis, looking for jobs, and worrying about fitting my resume into two pages. This week I have one part time job writing about science, which you all know I love to do, and the promise of a full-time job that will hopefully start early next year.

I really didn’t know what to do with myself. So we had some sparkling wine (of course) and I made milkshakes.
