Magic Cookie Bars

I need to start this post with a huge disclaimer: This recipe is essentially just lots of different types of sugar put together. So, just be warned. This is not a message to shame anyone, or tell you how much you should or shouldn’t eat. I mean, I’m definitely not one to talk. This is…

Chocolate Yule Log

The peppermint flavours don’t overwhelm the cake, but be careful with peppermint…

Gingerbread Bundt with Cinnamon Glaze

I treated myself to some Nordic Ware Bundt tins recently, and I couldn’t wait to get started with using them. I knew that this incredible Gingerbread cake would be the perfect way to christen my Heritage Bundt Pan. Due to the size of my oven, I bought a 6-cup Bundt tin rather than the full-sized…

On the sixth day of Christmas, Jena’s Tiny Kitchen gave to you, Booze-free Brandy Snaps, Florentines, Coconut Macaroons, Peppermint Pinwheels, Rice Krispie Treats and Snickerdoodle cookies. These brandy snaps contain no brandy simply because I have no brandy in the house and I don’t drink the stuff. No point in buying a whole bottle of…
