SHF #72: A Trifle for the Holidays

Written on November 30, 2010 at 12:30 am, by

It’s hard to believe, but this December I will celebrate five years of blogging. That’s five years of some pretty amazing food adventures. I will certainly always remember one of the very first food events that I took part in: Sugar High Fridays. Created by Jennifer of The Domestic Goddess, SHF is a celebration of  Continue Reading »

Je suis en retard.

Written on September 28, 2008 at 8:55 am, by

Je suis en retard. I am late. Sweet (and I mean SWEET) Fanny of Foodbeam was the host for this month’s edition of Sugar High Friday. The deadline was September 26. But today is September 28. Hmmm … Since her theme is cupcakes, I am hoping (quite shamelessly) that I can entice Fanny to include  Continue Reading »

Sugar High Friday #43: Lovin’ the Citrus!

Written on May 23, 2008 at 7:49 pm, by

Sugar High Friday is one of my favourite events and yet I always seem to miss the opportunity to participate. However, when I saw that my Helene was hosting this month’s edition and that the theme she’d chosen was Citrus, I just had to make time! I contemplated a number of very complicated desserts but  Continue Reading »

Written on September 28, 2007 at 6:42 pm, by

*** Updated on October 1, 2007: It came to my attention that I forgot an entrant for SHF #35 and for this I apologize profusely. S. of the blog The Student Stomach sent along some Roasted Fig Dumplings that have to be seen to be believed. They’re mouth-watering! Thanks, S.! *** When Jennifer of The  Continue Reading »

A Sweet Reminder

Written on September 13, 2007 at 7:31 pm, by

As we approach another weekend, I thought I’d give everyone a sweet reminder of SHF #35: The Beautiful Fig! The deadline for submissions is midnight on Monday September 24th with the round-up to be posted on Friday September 28th. I’ve had a few comments and questions from people about fresh figs so I just want  Continue Reading »

It is my great honour to announce that I am the host of the 35th edition of Sugar High Friday!

Every type of sweet imagineable has been explored over  Continue Reading »

SHF #34: Good Things Grow in Ontario!

Written on August 25, 2007 at 2:57 pm, by

While many people are familiar with the City of Toronto, I often feel that not enough people know that Toronto is located within the province of Ontario (Canada is divided into ten provinces and three territories). For those of us who live in Ontario, we’re blessed to be in a location where both urban and  Continue Reading »

SHF #33: Mojito Cupcakes

Written on July 22, 2007 at 6:44 pm, by

When I went to Miami in April, I had one of the best mojitos ever. It was perfectly limey, perfectly minty, perfectly rummy, perfectly sweet, perfectly tart and generally perfect. It was so good that as I lay on the beach I kept thinking how wonderful it would be to capture the taste of that  Continue Reading »

Coconut, My Love!

Written on June 22, 2007 at 8:15 pm, by

When I read that The Domestic Goddess was bringing Sugar High Friday back to its beginning (so to speak), I was happy. It’s only right, after all, that the person who created such a popular event should get to host it every now and then. But I was even happier when I read that the  Continue Reading »

SHF #27: The Amedei High

Written on January 21, 2007 at 10:14 pm, by

Ah, the joys of a sugar high! January’s sugar high is being hosted by none other than David Lebovitz who clearly knows that chocolate is king … and queen for that matter. The theme for SHF #27 is Chocolate by Brand. When I bake, I generally use Lindt chocolate, which is easy to find in  Continue Reading »

Sugar High Friday #23: The Surprise Inside

Written on September 22, 2006 at 4:53 pm, by

I just love surprises! The thrill. The anticipation. The agony of wanting to know. When Alanna of A Veggie Venture announced that the theme for SHF #23 would be "The Surprise Inside", I smiled. I smiled a secret, Mona Lisa smile. And then I began to plan. This particular SHF was most challenging for me  Continue Reading »

Sugar High Monday: Apricot Jam and Apricot Almond Coffee Cake

Written on August 28, 2006 at 11:17 pm, by

I seem to be just a bit late for everything these days. A bit late for work, a bit late for appointments and a bit late for Sugar High Friday! This was supposed to be my entry for Sugar High Friday #22, hosted by Nicky and Oliver of Delicious Days, the theme of which is  Continue Reading »

Sugar High Friday #21: Granita al Limone Con Fragole Ripiene di Mascarpone

Written on July 28, 2006 at 5:53 pm, by

Lest I be accused of being a big baby, I will not go on (and endlessly on) about how hot and humid this summer has been. Suffice it to say it’s all this Cream Puff can do to keep her pâte à choux from deflating and her pastry cream filling from just melting away. Sarah  Continue Reading »

SHF #18: Open, Sesamé!

Written on April 21, 2006 at 5:44 pm, by

I already know what you’re thinking. You’re thinking, “Why did she make a dessert with rum when Chandra of Lick the Spoon, who’s hosting SHF#18, mentioned avoiding the ubiquitous rum cake?” In my defence, I had not planned on making a dessert for SHF#18 that had rum in it. I had been planning something with  Continue Reading »
