Strawberry Cream Cheese Pie

IMG_0805Do any of you dream of having strawberry cream cheese pie every day of the week? Now that I know just how good this pie is, I am starting to have these dreams. For Easter this weekend, I made strawberry pie to go with our turkey lurkey dinner. What a finish it was! Grab some of the freshest berries from the store (and a frozen pie pastry if you are lazy), bake the pastry (I highly recommend making it from scratch), fill it with delicious cream cheese, fresh strawberries, and strawberry puree, chill it for a few hours, and indulge.

Whoopie Pie Bar!!!

First off, I have to announce that The Male Baker is married! Back on November 5th, I said “I do” to my wonderful wife Hannah. Since then, I cannot stop thinking about the ever soo scrumptious whoopie pie bar at our wedding. Throughout the months before November 5th, I spent a lot of my time thinking about what I could bake for the dessert at our reception. A couple months before our wedding, I decided that whoopie pies would make a classy, delicious, and unique dessert. But just a stack of plain whoopie pies, lacked the zest I wanted for an unforgettable dessert. Luckily, one sunny afternoon in Santa Barbara, Greg Spencer, my father-in-law, came up with a brilliant idea! I am sure his idea came to surface while he was on his front porch, grading way too many papers with a hot cup of coffee at his side…a Whoopie Pie Bar for the wedding! Just pure genius right??!!!!

Heart Warming Apple Pie Muffins

Hey! I hope you are all having a nice and relaxing summer with as many barbecues and baked goods as possible. As you may have noticed over the last few months, I have had a hard time sneaking in my love for baking a midst all the summer activities going on in Calgary and area. All the work that I have been doing has also really taken a bite out of the time that I normally have to just hang out in the kitchen and bake delicious treats for all your eyes to eat up! Hopefully as the fall season comes into play in the coming months, I will be able to concoct up some tantalizing recipes, recipes that you will have a hard time resisting when the leaves start to hit the ol’ ground.  Continue reading

Pumpkin Whoopie Pies with Maple Cream Cheese Filling


For all of you Whoopie Pie lovers, I have found the perfect combination! Just imagine some scrumptious maple cream cheese icing in between two succulent Whoopie’s. Now I have you drooling don’t I! So get right back on your horse and get baking so you can enjoy some decadent treats for yourself.

I baked these Pumpkin Whoopie Pies for my Grandparents 60th Wedding Anniversary along with the Chocolate Nutella Cookies and found that they were just right together. Although very different from the Nutella Cookies, these Pumpkin Whoopie’s fit right in and they added to the celebration for my Grandparents. They were quite pleased on how I had managed to bring in the 61st year of their marriage with such mouth watering flavors, and believe it or not,  grandma almost lost her dentures when her jaw dropped at the sight of them! Luckily she was able to pull it together and have a bite or five of these delicious Whoopie Pies! I hope you enjoy these as much as my family did!
