Chocolate Chunk Olive Oil Banana Cake with Lisianthus Flowers, a vintage fork and a Gingham napkin on a white farmhouse table

Who doesn’t LOVE banana cake?  Our clan is obsessed, and the novelty of a freshly baked loaf of banana bread coming out of the oven never seems to wear out.  I’ve had the same recipe on repeat for over 25 years (there’s a reason, it’s SO GOOD… and yes, I’m that old if you are doing the math lol), and … View The Post

Breakfast, Desserts & Baking, Snacks

Registered Dietitian Tori Wesszer shows you how to make zucchini apple bread that the whole family will LOVE!

The transition from summer to fall is my FAVOURITE time of the year.  The crisp air and gorgeous colours when the trees turn make me want to dive into a cozy knit sweater, throw on the slippers, steep some tea and crank up the oven to bake.  Is anybody else with me?

Rum Raisin Hot Cross Buns

I know I’ve been posting a lot of baking recipes lately – I’m going to blame it on the pregnancy!  I promise I’ll change it up after this, but I simply couldn’t resist squeezing this one for rum raisin hot cross buns in for Easter.

Irish Cheddar Buttermilk Biscuits

Biscuits have to be one of my top comfort foods.  Growing up we had these fresh from the oven and served with a warm bowl of soup or stew.  I recently made this version of buttermilk buiscuits to go with a big batch of Broccoli Potato Soup on a Sunday afternoon and both were a hit.

Double Apple Muffins

We have an apple tree (so lucky), so I make a heap of apple sauce at the end of every apple season and freeze it for baking and snacking through the year.  Charlie, our 3 year old, loves it on top of oatmeal, such an amazing way to start the day!

Double Chocolate Olive Oil Cake

Olive oil and chocolate? Crazy as it sounds, it’s a match made in heaven. February is Heart Month and of course Valentine’s Day, not that anybody needs a reason to bake a chocolate cake!  I decided to celebrate it this year by raiding the baking aisle in Nature’s Fare, with a side trip to the olive oil section.

Upside-Down Pear Gingerbread Cake

There are few things that define the holidays more than gingerbread. The smell and taste instantly take me back to my childhood and hours spent putting together (and eating) gingerbread houses. I’ve tried so many different versions of upside down cakes, but never one with gingerbread.  Of course pear and gingerbread seemed like a match made in heaven, and the … View The Post

Apple Cinnamon Scones

I put the word out on Instagram (@fraichenutrition if you want to follow) to get an idea of what people wanted to see for apple recipes, given my recent apple situation.  Scones came up a few times, and since they are so easy to make and we love them to bits, I thought I would whip up a batch of … View The Post
