Lemon Lime Pie | Christina with Caramel

Full of bright flavours, and probably one of the easiest pies to whip together, this pie is a cross between lemon meringue and key lime pie. The beauty of this dessert is its simplicity.  Simple to make, simple clean flavours and simplest of all to eat. A simple little pie that manages to be crunchy, creamy, tangy, tart and sweet all at the same time.

I am a serial under-celebrator of Valentine’s Day. To me, the best part of Valentine’s Day is getting my Sidekick’s cards ready to hand out at daycare and decorating sugar cookies for their party.

From Argentina with Love Flan | Christina with Caramel

Ok, well I’m not actually in Argentina… But if I close my eyes just so, and take a big bite of this sinfully creamy and lush flan, I can just imagine I’m there. We all have those desserts that are so much more to us than just a dessert.  They are a tradition, they evoke memories, they symbolize a moment in our lives. This is one of those desserts to me.

Baked Soft Pretzels| Christina with Caramel

This is not the sweetest recipe, but you know what, I haven’t been feeling so sweet. Just one of those weeks, you know? I can’t put my finger on anything in particular, it wasn’t terrible, no major catastrophes to speak of, but it wasn’t the greatest week around, either.Read More »

Maple Pear Galette | Christina with Caramel

Here we are, second week of January almost over. Any New Year’s resolution makers out there?

Personally, I don’t make them. Despite being an avid Goal Setter, List Maker and all around Planner kind of girl, resolutions just aren’t my thing. But I know resolutions work for a lot of people, and you know what, I really respect that. So this week I’ve brought you an amazing recipe that resolution makers and non-makers alike will enjoy. This beautiful and rustic maple pear galette is maybe actually, very slightly, just the teeniest bit healthy. Ok, not necessarily healthy, but how about not-so-terrible-for-you?Read More »

Happy New Year to all of you. Hope you all enjoyed some time off with your loved ones.  May all your dreams come true this year, and may you all enjoy peace, love and positivity.

I’m still dealing with this never-ending cold, so I had a very nice, very quiet, super glam New Years with the Argentinian and the Sidekick; it involved a couple glasses of red wine, Netflix, jammies and copious amounts of cough medicine. My kind of New Years! I’m not sure if it was the blend of cough mixture and wine, or just the general good vibes in the air, but I was in a very, very happy place.Read More »

Christmas Doughnut Holes | Christina with Caramel

I know it’s been a couple of weeks since I posted anything, and for that I’m so sorry. I’ve got a solid excuse, I promise. It involves a white dress, a couple of rings, a very special kiss….

Eggnog Cinnamon Rolls

Fluffy cinnamon rolls with sweet eggnog cream cheese frosting – a fun and festive twist on everyone’s favourite sticky treat.

Eggnog Cinnamon Rolls | Christina With Caramel

It’s baaaaack! Yes, eggnog has made it’s sneaky little seasonal cameo once again. So naturally, I’m going to consume liters and liters of the stuff before it disappears again. It’s really the only sensible thing to do. And of course, stuff it into as many different kinds of baked goods as logic allows. Starting with these cinnamon rolls.
