Nanaimo Bar Easter Eggs

When I was little, I remember making Nanaimo Bar Easter Eggs with my mom. I thought it would be a fun tradition to share with my kids, but I was disappointed that I couldn’t find directions online on how to make them. Needless to say that didn’t stop me from trying! It really is quite… Continue reading Nanaimo Bar Easter Eggs



While I absolutely love coffee, I’m not a huge fan of cold coffee, unless of course it’s in a Tiramisu. I love the fact that Tiramisu literally means: “pick me up”, “cheer me up”, “wake me up”.
