Trinidadian Gulab Jamun

Trinidadian gulab jamun
This sweet Trinidadian Gulab Jamun snacks are different from the Indian Gulab Jamun taste and texture. It is more like a soft textured cookie or sweet murukku. These snacks will keep well in an air-tight container.

Cheesecake served with Dole Fruits

cheesecake with dole fruit
Dole has launched a fresh innovation for ready-to-eat fruit. We found the new Dole Resealable Fruit Pouches to be a time-saving way to enjoy fresh tasting fruit instantly. It is perfect for occasions or places where we don't have the luxury of kitchen tools, for example to take during picnics and camping, for office snacks, and sports games.

Mini Raspberry Muffins with Nordica Smooth Cottage Cheese

I have never thought of cottage cheese as a usual choice for a sweet treat or a punch of protein until now - when I got a chance to try the Gay Lea Nordica Smooth Cottage Cheese. The two delicious flavours Vanilla Bean and Salted Caramel Nordica Smooth Cottage Cheese is perfect to enjoy as either snack or dessert. Each convenient snack cup contains 10 grams of protein and 110 calories. We love how smooth this Nordica Smooth Cottage Cheese is without the lumpy texture cottage cheese usually has.

Brownie Cookies Made with Rodelle Gourmet Dutch-Processed Baking Cocoa

I love the smell and the taste of Rodelle Gourmet Dutch-Processed Baking Cocoa. Using good quality cocoa makes a huge impact on how delicious our baked goodies turn out. I have used other types of cocoa to make one of our favourite recipes from the Smitten Kitchen cookbook, and no one in my family has raved about these cookies as much until I baked them with Rodelle Gourmet Dutch-Processed Baking Cocoa. Using this cocoa powder gave these brownie roll out cookies a delicious flavour without an overpowering cocoa taste. I am glad Rodelle Gourmet Dutch-Processed Baking Cocoa is available at Costco stores across Canada.

Sponge Pineapple Upside Down Cake made in a Deep Cast Iron Pan

Have a blessed Ramadan everyone.

I love making my favourite, delicious pineapple upside down cake on this Deep Cast Iron Pan from Mr. Bar-B-Q. It has deep sides, which is useful for pan roasting, braising, grilled cheese, cobblers and much more. We can use it on grills, stovetops, and in ovens or take it for camping. I love that it is pre-seasoned and ready to use. The heat distributes evenly to the cooking surface. This pan has to be washed by hand without using harsh detergents and dried thoroughly right away to prevent rusting. We should apply a thin coat of oil before storing in a dry place.
